And it really is about QOL anyways. To some folks it means money, to some commute, itís always different.

At the end of the day itís our job, not our life.

Thanks all -- great feedback. I plan on submitting an application to RAH so this info is very helpful. Keep it coming if you have any other thoughts, upgrade times or not....

The CA vacancy bid results will come out around March 9th so weíll see how far the upgrade reaches. Of course, it doesnít mean much for a new hire now since a lot can change.

After last months award, absolutely. The drop in upgrade times last month was a huge surprise for me. In the last 2 months it has dropped 10 months.

Yeah I definitely didnít know how long itíd be when I first came here but after 2 years of the same attrition ahead of me, something have had to have gone wrong for it to be over 3 years.

So the plan is to have 2.5/3 year upgrades for the foreseeable future?

I wouldnít necessarily call it a plan, but it seems like itíll stay in that range. Weíve had some pretty large vacancy bids the last couple of months that have brought it down.

We are supposed to see 7-10% growth over the next 2 years according to our esteemed leader so that may drive it down further.

Just like anything in the industry, it is a dynamic situation. It depends on attrition and hiring.
