Any C208B pilots with West Air?

I am looking for some current scheduling, pay and other QOL information.

Thanks in advance,

I missed a call by HR on Friday. Unfortunately, it went straight to voicemail as I was watching the "A-team". I'll have to give'em a call monday. Whatever info I can pull, I'll shoot your way. :)

Thanks, and hope that call goes very well. I exchanged some emails with them this week, but wanted to see if any of the West Air pilots could give a howgozit report from the front lines.

Let me know what you find out.

Thanks,

Sean

I spoke with HR for about 20 mins this week. They wanted to know if I were still interested in the position along with my last 135 checkout, the last time I flew the C208 and whether or not I would give up my recall #. We talked about potential bases if brought onboard. I got the impression they're looking for guys with C208 time and 135 experience. If your on furlough like me, they'll want you to give up your #.
I was asked to "hang tight" they're still filtering through resumes and plan on having 1 or 2 interviewing sessions in the next few weeks. I was told I would be contacted for further consideration in the next couple of weeks. At which time, I would be told where and when to interview. :cool:

Alright, thanks Rotate. I guess I'll keep hoping. I live in the Bay Area and soon to be out of job. This seems like a decent place. In any case, good luck and keep us posted on the results...

Thanks!

All FedEx caravans with hubs in LAS, SAN, ONT, OAK, and SMF. Many of the pilots holding routes from those hubs live in the outstation cities. If you're reserve you may travel to any of these cities either hub or outstation. Most of the routes are Monday afternoon thru Saturday mornings. Early morning flights from the hubs to the outstations in which you're at the outstation doing the day and spend the nights in the hubs. The last pay structure I saw was about 40000 a year to start, but I believe with a route the per diem would make the yearly pay more. They had all the standard benefits better than the benefits I had at the regionals. It's an excellent company with good people.

I hope this information helps you.
