BOS or JFK 190 or Bus. Itís luck of the draw. Donít know what itís like in the bus, but BOS 190 reserve is over a year.

Wait until we get a contract, though. Itís a dumpster fire right now.

RSV on bus at JFK was almost a year. BOS closer to 2 years. And currently being on RSV blows! Although Iím sure the guys that live in base donít mind. As a commuter I couldnít wait for a line.

Stay far away. This place is going to get much worse before it gets any better.

Sometimes I wonder if the people applying are unemployable at the big 3. Itís baflling to me...

I applied here because when I researched and asked (much of it on this site) I was advised jetblew had some small problems But otherwise a great place to work. The legacyís were mostlyjust starting up hiring.

When I got here I found that to be mostly true. Over the past 4 years however it has gotten worse.....much worse.

Now, my former colleagues, that were envious of MY GREAT FORTUNE to get a call from jetblew, are now at Delta/AA/SWA, and ecstatic to be at such a great job after being whipped the last decade at a dying regional.

I got lazy and comfortable here, THAT IS ON ME AND I REGRET NOT BEING MORE AGRESSIVE WITH MY APPS. So here we are 4 years later and again, the death by a thousand cuts is occurring. Now it is becoming too LATE for me to move on.

If I were asking now....and getting THIS FEEDBACK, I would stay far away.

Great post. Every word of this post is also true for me. I was reasonably happy here at one point, now, um no....

This is a great honest opinion from a guy that has not been a negative burn-it-down guy.

I've noticed Southerner, LOWpayman and Hypergirl have been awfully quiet lately. Finally.

Apply elsewhere. You will thank everyone who posted above. Working here gets worse by the week.

What I'm trying to figure out is if this would be true with a new contract. That other post about the company offering less than Alaska pay makes me wonder.
