Default Hire for foreigner

Hi everyone, I live in South Korea and would move to the US soon. I have flown total 2100hrs which includes 1100hrs for AF military fighter jet(as PIC) and 1000hrs for A320 as FO. My nationality is South Korean but has green card for eligible to work in the US.
Iíll have ATP/CTP course in next month and hopefully would get full ATPL by next FEB.
I donít know Iím competitive for regional airline or could get a chance to Major like Frontier directly?
Or, is it too hard to get a chance to foreigner?

those statistics are competitive for many major airlines.

Your written English will be the biggest limitation

How hard is it to get hired and then be assigned to ORD or switch to that domicile later?

I have family in Chicago and am thinking of moving there. I live in Atlanta (which opens up in February from reading on here) now so it would be nice to start there and get established in Frontier and then eventually move to Chicago. This is all theoretical on being hired obviously but thought Iíd ask.

Why? There is no essay as part of the interview process.

The hard part would be getting hired. The rest is a piece of cake. It may take a couple of months to get ORD but it could quickly be done.

Why? His written English is better than some of the natural born pilot certificate holders that post on here. I genuinely question the English proficiency of some US pilots.

Like stayontarget said. Itís a piece of cake to switch to bases that your seniority can hold. I wouldnít go so far as to guarantee that youíd get ORD out of training, but it shouldnít take too long. However, the current junior FO is, in fact, a November hire.

As long as there is a change in the seniority list (i.e. new hires and/or upgrades) the company will post a staffing adjustment where you can bid for you desired domicile. Always bid for what you want, not what the staffing adjustment shows as having vacancies. It may not show anything available in ORD, but an ORD FO taking an upgrade and another being awarded another vacancy will clear up two spots in ORD. Itís a domino effect when it comes to base transfers. In addition to the staffing adjustments, the company holds domicile trades four times per year (once per quarter) where you can try to trade out of your domicile. These domicile trades are contractual and will be held regardless of seniority list movement with new hire or upgrades.

Just worry about getting hired for now. The rest will fall into place easily. Good luck!

I was just wondering if I am competitive to get hired by Frontier at this point?

Iím retiring from active duty military and am around 2800 hours total (most of it multi-engine turbine) with around 1100 hours PIC (again multi-engine turbine) and greater than 100 hours in the last year. Iím updating airline apps on a daily basis and I am working on letters of recommendations at this time with 1 uploaded so far.

From reviewing here the classes are around 40 people like once a month. Frontier does not appear to be in a hiring frenzy the way the other airlines are but Frontier is hiring right now. I live in Atlanta now so Iíd hopefully like to start out there since the domicile is opening up in February. Thanks for any advice.

My hot air has a tendency to fog it up a bit, but overall the view is generally quite nice. :-)
