Thanks Terry, The only thing they mentioned last week is that it would be full before my number was called. Not sure if they had actually put names to spaces.

Cheers Tweet

What I have liked is the sincere kindness in the company. They stand behind you 100%. I have been pleasantly surprised. I have yet to find something that sucks....lol.

You work half the year.
You stay at the best hotels.
Your airplanes are like new and kept in that condition.
Your maintenance is more often than not done by Cessna and very good mechanics.
The employees at the company are GREAT...it is not a front, they are sincerely as nice as they look and act.
They are growing and if you get on now, you are in a GREAT spot to upgrade and hold a captains position in 4 or 5 years or so.
They have a GREAT 401k program.
They are improving on work conditions, pay, ect. and doing it without a union.
You get to build frequent flyer mileage.
Our owners are sincerely appreciative of our efforts and are not jerks.
You get to build hotel rewards for free stays and hotel benefits.
The work is NOT hard. I have worked one day of 6 legs. The average seems to be around 3 or 4 a day for me on the XL/XLS.
Management supports us and wants you to work hard but have fun as well.

This company is very, very nice and so are all the pilots, management and support people I have dealt or worked with. I have been very impressed with it and it just gets better.

If you are a person that is afraid of working hard, don't come here. I don't consider this hard work in light of what I did in my previous military career but alot of folks do think it is hard. If flying 3 to 4 legs on average, a day is hard for you, you may want to look elsewhere. Like I have said, my longest day was 6 legs and about 8 hours of flying.....lol. My average flight day has been between 2 to 3 hours a day.

I consider myself one lucky bastid.

I agree with everything listed there except the no union. CS has been losing pilots to NetJets just as FlexJet has because of pay and work rules. NetJets has a strong union that has fought for and revolutionized the pay structure of fractionals. CS had to follow suit on pay to try to stem the loss of pilots and therefore higher training costs. I'll give you a break on the union thing since you are military and have not seen the civilian side as in depth. Also I would like to thank you for your service to our country. Congratulations on the new job. CS is a good company.
