Default jetBlue Hiring

Can we start a new thread that applies to jetBlue hiring since the "latest and greatest" has turned into a session on arguing over pay and benefits. Some of us still want to be employed. Can a moderator throw this into the hiring forum?

Do you think the other thread is representative of the way the pilots treat one another on the line? It has to be a difficult working environment with tensions bubbling so close to the surface.

In reading those threads you would think it was adversarial but on the line it is exactly opposite. Yes there are slam clickers but all in all the pilots here are easy to get along with. The personality type JB looks for is just that someone who gets along and has fun at work, they have done a good job finding those type of pilots. That being said there is a huge divide in the pilot group on representation but the discussions are far more civilized then what is being displayed on this forum. Yes we are underpaid and under compensated by at least 28% but most of the pilots are either looking for jobs elswhere or don't care about representation anymore. IMHO apathy appears to have set in among most of the other CBA supports that I know. It is a good place to work hopefully management will realize that guys/girls are leaving and up the compensation to keep the pilot group here.

Thanx for the insight- this forum does tend to breed conflict. I presume its the 5% making 95% of the noise.

I was in recurrent this week. Leadership said to expect classes to continue through the summer. This wasn't the original plan but I guess the plan has changed (again). They are continuing with 20/month. (subject to change of course). Good luck guys/girls
