Default Interview gouge

Hi everyone,

I apologize for a recurring thread but some updated info all in one place would be beneficial to everyone as LUV ramps up hiring.

Where is the most current gouge on the interview?
Iíve looked online at all the usual suspects but the material is for the most part a few years old. I realize thereís three parts but would like to know more of each part.

Which bases did the new hires get in the last class?
Trying for MDW hopefully asap.

Duration of training?
Iíve heard 2 months give or take. Any suggestions on how to handle the home life away from training center with kids.

Approximate income first year givin reserve times in a junior base. Is pay any different during the two months of training or is it just guaranteed hours at first year

Pay during training is guarantee. 89/87/85 TFP depending on how many days in the month.

You should be able to hold MDW in 1-3 months. Some bids a couple new hires get MDW, although in the last bid there were no new hires. MDW is typically the most junior base after OAK and BWI.

I started my newhire class on February 7, 2017 and started IOE in MDW on April 5. I spent 55 nights at the hotel in DAL and had a couple breaks where I could have gone home. As it turned out, I went home to MSP once, when the others had their type rating oral exams. I had my type rating so it didn't apply to me.

There were one or two other opportunities for a night or two at home but not for long. Training is not intense or worrisome, but it is a bit compressed and they cover a lot of information, both company and training related. I very much enjoyed my training time and I think most of the others did too. But it was my fourth airline training program so there were very few surprises, except for how much the company seemed to want us and how much they wanted us all to succeed, something I had never experienced to the same degree in the past, though I never had a bad experience either. Southwest was the best of them all.

Plan on two months of pretty compressed training, especially if you don't have the type rating. But it's totally realistic and manageable even if you are new to the 737 and/or Part 121 flying.

Youíll gross $6000-$6600 / mo on training pay. 401k contribution on the first check. Insurance and bennies on the first day. Training hotel is normally the Hilton Anatole and very nice. I went home about once every 10days or so on average.
