The best 91 operators are unknown to the public eye, as bill saw said. There lots of Fortune 100 companies that run awful departments and unknown “rich guys” who are awesome to work for and have zero turnover. And there are big name operators with zero turnover.

Network is going to be the only way.

Agree about Networking. My friends and I share our contacts (Owners & Companies) and we often back each other up to cover our flying. I have introduced, then SIC qualified several friends, to fly with Owners.

Being selected by the cookie cutter operators ala DAL, UAL, AA is a breeze compared to being hired by the likes of, for example, IBM, Coca-Cola, GM, etc.

I spent 13 years at a 121 carrier and was faced with downsizing, going out of business etc. I was lucky to have been hired by a fortune 500 (part 91 only) in my hometown with beautiful aircraft/ maintenance. I've now worked for them 6 yrs and am seriously considering going back to a major. lll be 50 so it won't be easy. My biggest draw to the majors is the anonymity. I loved being a number that no one really cared about. As long as I showed up, no one cared! in 91, thats not how it works. my boss is a serious micromanager and the company is dragging its feet to boost our pay in order to keep up with the airlines. True, I only work about 8-10 days per month and rarely fly more than one leg per day. The money is decent and the benefits are great. I wish there was a way to embrace the situation and stay but, as a former airline guy, ill simply never be part of the "team". My coworkers suck, probably because they are threatened by me but I can't seem (after 6 yrs) to find common ground.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Some (any) career advice is appreciated.
