727 + Amphib,
thanks for all the helpful info you both provided.
Any info you can provide on the interview "process"? My numbers are:
>1000 ME PIC (all piston)
>1000 TPIC (all PC-12 and C-208)
0.0 ME SIC/PIC

Much appreciated.

Curious how close is "close to minimums" per the job posting? 1,000 tt? 1,200tt?

Looks like a great company to work for, although I am short of 1,500 hours.

I am told 1800 Total Time/ 100 Multi/ ATP-CTP, ATP Written Complete will get your foot in the door.

I would image interview questions on past experience, tell me about a time, things of that nature. A line pilot is currently doing pilot applicant screening calls.

I would focus on customer service aspect. We need pilots who can deliver the high end product, step outside their job description, go above and beyond if needed. PM me if you have any specific questions.

So we sort of run it like an airline....; You start out at first year pay..

Same thing with upgrades.. We are currently hiring street Captains for the Citation X only because nobody among our pilot group was X typed. But FO's come over from within to avoid a riot or revolving door.
Understood.

Agreed it's probably for the best for morale.

The web site mentions living within one hour of a airport with major airline service. Would MGM with regionals meet the limitation or do they mean main line only like ATL. I am within 20 min of MGM and 90 min from BHM. Not the best place to commute to a flying job.

Nah, think youd be fine commuting out of MGM. We have atleast one pilot I know of commuting out of BHM.

I routinely get two leg travel out of ATL through CLT on American, LOL. Its cheap, saves the company money if there is no rush to get positioned.

From what I understand, flyExclusive is alot more flexible with home base airports than most other operators.

Would 1800 get you into the CJ or would someone at those hours with jet experience get an opportunity to fly something larger than that?

1800 would most likely get you in the Excel or Encore.

Another CJ went into prebuy last week, so that leaves us with only four. Doubt there will be any more non-rated new hires into the CJ fleet.
