We have FOs who would like 10 years of their life back. Consider yourself lucky...

I agree with GeeWizDriver. You only lost 30 minutes of your life with NetJets.

I did my phone interview last week. Lasted about 1 hr. with all the TMAAT questions. The lady was really nice. Then two days later I got a call with an invite to come up to Columbus for the face to face. My schedule didn't agree with this, but most of all the 15 to 20 year upgrade didn't agree with continuing to spin my wheels thinking about Netjets. Today I declined any further interviews. Coming from a background of mostly corporate with some peppering of 121 (Expressjet) and 135 (Journey) flying, Netjets seemed like a dream job. Its just sad how there are NO professional advancements available to the junior pilot group.

I'd guess 1/2 of however many die this year.

I just was called as well. NJ "was" my dream gig for a long time while I was screwing around in the 135 world. But a year ago, I jumped to 121 Regional. QOL is great for me. I really enjoy it and am currently eligible for upgrade (just waiting on base). The 15yr upgrade is scary. I'm definitely on the fence about it all right now. Either way, I'll do the phone interview and see what it's about!

For those that say NetJets was a dream job, why was it a dream job? I always hear that from people.
