People coming here should have a realistic outlook and tempered expectations. NYC and a coin toss of an interview. I hope our recruiters are being honest.
I'd be curious if pilots considering EDV are more informed than the recruiters on some level. Historically recruiters spew nonsense the HR people make up and whoever repeats the lie best gets to come back and tell his crew room mates how awesome it is getting free food and bull****ting with the old tribe and not going to work, while complaining he/she doesnt have enough hours to upgrade

Not my song, not my lyrics, but the few pilots who are sucked in by the con men of recruiters certainly must be heavily outweighed by smart pilots doing their own research. I do enjoy watching HR fail though, even from a distance. Hopefully that means more money for you all.

And weekly classes of 10+ starting this month...yeah, I think the word on the street outweighs the 'insights' shared here. I know it pains some guys to hear that.

Welcome aboard to all, this is an awesome place to work. Honest culture, professional treatment from management, the chiefs have your back. For me, 3+ years, upgraded after about 13 months (prior 121 time), just waiting for my DGI number to be called.

And, honestly, if things don't work for me at mainline, I like it here. I could see myself hanging around for a while.

Same. I like it here quite a bit. I did my time in NYC, and got out. Life is good, and I've averaged a monthly credit of ~103 while living in base on reserve this summer. I can't really complain at all.

Same here. I love it here, things could always be better but all in all compared to the things I hear from my friends who work at other carriers, this is a good place to be and a good time to be here.

If you do come to Endeavor, know we are already overstaffed quite a bit to absorb some of this new growth, so the movement may not be as quick as it seems. Reserve will no doubt be long, you’ll likely be on the 200, and upgrade will take longer than other airlines, beyond 1000 121 most likely. We do have an excellent commuter policy though.
lol overstaffed... I've been working every single day of reserve for lik 6 months now

Yeah the “overstaffing” phase is over. Tons of 200% days in my category being offered and I’m being used pretty much every day on reserve bidding last out and being in the top half of reserves in seniority.

Also comparing to my friends at AA wholly-owneds, this is a great company to work for. Ask a PSA pilot how their MX is and compare how many MELs they fly with compared to us.

Nope, CA. Man we need to switch, I'm trying to not fly and get time off at home.
