Default Regionals

I remember last year the regionals were super desperate but today you’d be lucky to get a call back with all the over hiring and training delays .

There are still plenty of super desperate regionals. The ones that ponied up and have good pay/QOL are being selective and the bottom feeders are still hiring anyone with a pulse.

It is true that things are changing and fast, but I don't think we can predict what's gonna happen short/long term. There a lot of factors involved in the equation...

The economy the next 5 years is the biggest variable. Retirements are predictable.

Would you guys call this a pilot shortage if the regionals are being picky ? 🧐

“The regionals” aren’t one company. If all of “the regionals” offered roughly the same pay and QOL they’d all be less picky. Right now you have 2-3 clear leaders and the rest aren’t nearly as strict.
