Default PSA - Ask A Recruiter

Just a quick introduction. I am a recruiter with PSA, more specifically on the interview team. We thought we would create a profile here to answer questions that you may have.

Feel free to to PM or post questions here.

I will also keep you updated with upcoming events and other changes as they occur.

Not at all! I actually PM'd him and a few others that post on here regularly and asked them to keep it up. They have given some great advice and answered hundreds of questions really well.

I also told them that if they disagree with what I post here, to call me out on it. They know me by name, and can talk to me here or in person.

I would like for the PSA discussions to continue to be one of the better parts of APC. This can be a very valuable resource.

Great question. We can't legally tell people why we didn't hire them. That is lawyer stuff. But I can tell you what we are looking for.

We are looking for someone who presents themselves in a professional manner and has all of the documents that we ask them to bring. This shows that they are serious about the job, and that they will likely take training seriously as well.

We look for logbooks that are well kept (to a point) and things logged properly. We look at things pretty closely in the logbooks. If you put "low pass over girlfriends house st 50 feet" in the comments section, I will read it and ask you about it.

We want someone that has the required experience (not just total time) to do well in training and on the line. I expect you to be instrument proficient. I expect you to know some about the 121 world. I won't ask you about 3585, but I do expect you to have a grasp of what we do.

I also expect you to have a good attitude. Be polite. Be professional. I will likely have to fly with you on the line if I hire you. We will spend 4 or more days together in a small space.

I also want PSA to be a good fit for you. I like it here, and it works for me. But that might not be true for everyone.

Does that help answer your question?

Beating around the bush on the first question...that's funny. Kidding. I understand the legal side of it, and that you answered the question without getting in trouble on your first post.

Welcome and I hope to have some good discussions. I will keep you straight, and will promise to call you out if I disagree with you.

Do you have a lot of pilots that live in Atlanta and based in Charlotte? That a pretty decent commute?

Do we have a lot of pilots (and flight attendants) that live in ATL and commute? Yes. A lot. We are hiring lots of ExpressJet pilots right now that are choosing that commute.

As far as how easy the commute is, I can't answer that. I know quite a few commute to DCA as well from ATL. There are flights about every hour between ATL and CLT/DCA. You can fly on Delta/AA to CLT, and on AA/Delta/Southwest to DCA.

CVG is a possibility on Delta flights, but I have heard that those are often full due to CVG being an old base for Delta. Frontier flys between the two as well, I believe.

TYS is drivable, depending on which side of ATL you live on.

If there are any pilots on here that commute from ATL, they will be able to answer that question better than me.

Our commuter policy states that you must give it 2 good shots at getting to work. You must list on 2 flights that would get you to base in time to work. If you can't make either, you are not penalized for it. Get to base when you can, and you will get back on your same trip.

Commuters get $250/month in commuter hotels in base, for a total of $3000 a year. You can use them as you wish.

First, welcome recruiters. I think I know some of you guys.....

Second, after the recruiters answer all of your questions, make sure you connect with myself or someone else that works at PSA and get a referral. I have a general policy of not splitting the bonus, but I'll do whatever else I can to help you get through training.

Carry on......
