Default Piedmont Airlines

Vacation at PDT is:
5 days your first year
10 days your second through seventh year
15 days your seventh through fourteenth year
20 days fourteenth and greater

Uniforms is $20 payroll deducted and tax-free.

Bidding is still hard lines through paper but you can submit both requests for schedules and pay adjustments on-line now.

We do have a communter clause but since I don't commute I'm not familiar with it.

A flow-though with mainline US Airways is suppose to begin in March as well.

Health Insurance for individuals are $20 per month PPO or $25 for the Indemnity. Vision is available but only under the PPO plan. Dental can also be added. I'm not sure the cost, I think Vision is included in the PPO and dental is $3.25 extra a month?
