Proof that Atlas Air is the best airline flying opportunity out there. This part of the recruiting advertisement says it all:

"Please note that all candidates offered a position as a First Officer will be tested in accordance with 14 CFR Part 120.107(5) Sub Part E to determine the presence of the marijuana, cocaine, opiates (including codeine, heroin-6AM, morphine), opioids- hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone & oxymorphone, phencyclidine (PCP), and amphetamines/methamphetamines (including MDMA, MDA) or metabolites of these drugs."

On another thread, the poster stated that FedEx was cold calling candidates that failed their interview to come back and reinterview.
The Pilot Shortage is good news for Atlas pilots.

All part 121 airlines are required to administer the DOT pre-employment drug screen. Not sure why you think this reflects negatively on Atlas. I agree it is a crappy company but this is irrelevant.

Perhaps the inference is that anyone who applies to work at Atlas MUST be using drugs!

Not to worry: acetaminophen, caffeine, Diet Mt Dew are the primary components in our blood!

Default Atlas Air receiving three 747-400's

The NCA 747's going to Atlas were supposed to go to Kalitta. How many pilots does Atlas hire for each 747 in the fleet?

It's a good stepping stone to a major carrier. Training continues but the company apparently has huge retention problems and is losing around 15 crew every month.
