Default Corporate Commuter

Howdy folks -

We will be moving back to the US from Canada next year. Trying to figure out what the next step will be, but looking at (hopefully) finding a corporate job that may permit me to commute.

Not sure where exactly we will be planting roots, perhaps Boise ID area, perhaps northern AZ.

Currently hold Phenom 100/300 and Challenger 605/650 types.

Thx for any input

One of the beverage companies in rural Wyoming is looking for someone with your type ratings. Check the Orange site.

Although rare, I know of a couple departments that allow commuting OCONUS. What part of Canada do you currently live in? Most of the guys I know that are working this type of schedule are based out of the Northeast and commute from Toronto or Quebec City. Not sure how it'd work living in AZ. Best of luck!

Pretty big demand for 605/650 contract guys these days. Get in touch with Solairus and IFCC and they might be able to keep you busy.

They seem to always be looking for someone, which is never a good sign.

That would likely give away where I work It's not one of the two cities noted above, though.

Thanks for your reply, much appreciated!

I've already been pinged for contract work here with the same circumstances, so I can believe it's similar south of 49.

As for this :

I'm sure rural WY isn't for everyone! I'm a bit of a hick, though. Maybe that's something to look into..

Thanks for the tips, appreciate it

Best corporate commuting deal, perhaps only full-time gig, is FDX.
