Default Skywest signing bonus

Heard a rumor that Skywest will be offering a $5k signing bonus for current/typed CRJ drivers shortly.

Also heard Camielle is no longer in charge of hiring.

LOL. Regionals stealing talent from other regionals? You don't say! I agree, it should be $5k for CFIs too. They deserve something for putting up with all the new rules...

Guys already typed aren't as big of a training risk.

Weird, why only offer a bonus to CRJ typed pilots only? Why would someone give up seniority somewhere to start at the bottom of a 3000 pilot list for $5000? Makes no sense!
They should offer it to all applicants not only to potential CRJ pilots they could steal from other regionals.
