Problem is that people who want this job need to know that there is awful stuff and what this awful stuff really is.

Some of the folks that post sunshine comments about Atlas are like the guys that say the PB&J sandwiches aren't all that bad in prison. Sure, you can find a good nugget here and there, but overall you really wish you weren't here.

It is entirely possible to enjoy flying at Atlas and hate the way that you are treated. Those are two distinctly different things. Optimistic pilots come to work, are pleasant to fly with and do an outstandingly professional job operating the jet with their crew. Those same pilots, however, are compelled to fight for their contractual rights on a daily basis and for a better, safer contract as soon as possible.

Consequently, we post messages here in order to help aspiring pilots learn what the truth is about flying at Atlas. Obviously, this is a subjective assessment, but when you sift though all of the posts and all the rhetoric on APC, it doesn't take long to realize that Atlas management lies to potential new hires about the opportunities and benefits at Atlas while they ignore the hard facts that Atlas pays less than many regional jobs while treating you as nothing more than an asset to be worked 'till you drop while compensating you with as little as possible.
I totally agree.

The fact of the matter is after 3 months training, commuting to ANC, and being gone 19 days a month for about 6 months you will have buyer’s remorse. But what do we know. Most of us only have only been at an average of 4 different Part 121 carriers to compare to. Our opinions are uneducated. Obviously.

We’ve seen many guys come here and then resign to go on to a regional. Let that sink in...But by all means, PLEASE come on over. We don’t give a **** anymore.

Allegiant sucks. Atlas is hiring!

I understand there are issues, as there are everywhere; for Christ sake there are people saying “don’t go to Delta.”
I know Atlas has issues; but surely there are people who find the positive in the company.
I think it is great that after eating hundreds of meals on Atlas airplanes, the catering has only given me food poisoning three times. I wish I was exaggerating.

Do the research yourself if you don't believe what you see here. APC has all the basic information you should need.

Or better yet, do a couple of domestic jump seat rides to get a first hand look at your new career (just use caution with the catering).

Jumpseating on us is a pretty good idea.

Where can one find the latest online test gouge? Has anything changed with the online test in the last 5 years? Asking for a friend of a friend. I feel like a reluctant parent... it pains me to bring someone else into this world.

Question 1. Can you fog a mirror?

Question 2. When can you start?

Still looking for information on the Atlas Air open house. I did my homework and understand the situation there. I want to move back home to ANC to take care of my Dad who is sick. The pay is fine for me and the imputed income shouldn't matter if I'm living at a base. Can someone help me?

I guess it all about me ? There are more than a thousand Atlas Pilots who are NOT fine with imputed income
