But, I do meet mins anyway. Also, I'm going to be living in LAS if that has any impact on my appeal to them. Thanks for any advice.
From recruiting- you can add 0.2 per sortie.

Question

Great thread! I have read all 150 pages and think that I have a pretty good feel for the company. Thank you to everyone that took time to share valuable information.

This is the type of operation that I am interested in flying for and I would like to submit an application for a FO position. I am currently flying for a Part 135 operation and am at 1500+ TT, I also have plenty of XC and PIC time but I am short on instrument and night time and so I obviously donít have an ATP. I plan on aquiring the missing hours and the ATP next month and have the following question: should I apply now knowing that I donít have the ATP and risk getting my application tossed out or should I wait until I have the ATP and apply then?

There are a few folks that live in LAS and we operate out of there regularly so chances of a home start or end are possible. Day one would usually be an airline flight to Nor or SoCal I'd bet. Feel free to PM if you have any other questions.
Also lots over overnights at home living there plus local begin and end rotations.

Never and I mean NEVER send a resume or fill out an application projecting hours or licenses. That equates to lying and will get you either fired (if they hired you) or blackballed from ever working there again.

Sending a resume without the required qualifications (your ATP) will just get the application trashed since you aren't qualified.

Wait until you have ALL the required qualifications and hour minimums THEN send in the application/resume. And remember...minimums are just that...minimums. Most places, unless they're desperate, won't consider you with the absolute minimum so don't be discouraged if they don't jump right on your application.

Don't let that derail you, though. If you want to work there, keep updating/applying every couple months. After all, they may just get sick of your resume and call you in because you've demonstrated and ongoing interest in the company.

Good luck with your quest.

Question:

Anybody know if XOJet will be participating in any job fairs calendar year 2019? Don't see anything along these lines on their fB page. Last year they were pretty active with FAPA job fairs.

Thanks!
