I think they had a 99 opening in Seattle (BFI?)............

I thought the BFI base moved to Spokane a few years ago?

It did. However, there are still a couple of runs out of Seattle but there is no actual base there anymore. More like an out station than a base.

Can anyone comment on what the metro charter life is like.. schedules/flying/QOL/overtime pay/etc? Seems like an amazing job but not much info that I could find compared to the scheduled runs. Thanks!

2nd hand info itís a busy department which means they run you ragged, push duty day & flight time limits all week on minimum rest. Could be true; could be BS. But thatís all I got, take that info with a grain of salt.

gotcha. I was BFI based about 10 years ago. They used to basically move the whole base to Spokane every peak season. It sucked doing TDY from thanksgiving to Christmas. 😂

You will fly a lot but also get much more hard time off.

Much more hard time off? Isnít the schedule 3 weeks on/one week off?

Better than 6 days on/one day off I guess.

Some may see that as better. Depends on the individual. Compared to the normal 5-day work week with weekends off, the 3/1 schedule comes out to 1 or 2 fewer days off per month. Pros and cons for each.

No thatís all pretty much spot on. Schedule just went from 3 weeks on 1 week off to 4 weeks on 1 week off after the charter pilot group was asked to give up our week off through February ďto be made up laterĒ and the majority give that proposition a hard no.
