Default Spirit Airlines current hiring

Hey everyone, anyone have a minute to answer a quick question about hiring, I am somewhat confused. A few months ago I heard that Spirit had like 1500 apps, resumes, whatever on file, so why when I look at these pilot hiring info sites, It seems like they are amost always postings looking for new folks? Just wondering!

At the last job fair they said they have ~3,000 applications on file. They are still hiring. New hire classes every month.

If you are looking at job boards, they recycle old ads all the time.

Does anyone know if Spirit gives a .2 or .3 per sortie bump for military flights?

Sorry man, no military conversion.

I wish they did.

You thinking of applying?

Not only do they not, but the 4000TT is a hard requirement. Military hour discounts are on a case by case basis, so says a source in the hiring system. Best to do is apply and see what happens.

I second that. Even with the .3, its not as if 3100 TT is an easy # to achieve at Uncle Sam's Flying Circus, so try not to worry about what you can't control, like the 4k requirement.

If you're 1/2 serious about Spirit, put on your suit, go to a job fair, and stand in line with the huddled masses. Practice your 5 minute pitch on why you're a good fit for Spirit, be ready for the 4000TT question, nail the answer, and finish with a smile and a firm handshake.

Then cross your fingers and wait to see if you set the hook or not.

I 100% agree with NedsKid here. I was hired short of 4000TT, no credit for military sorties.

Apply, go to the job fair and put your best foot forward. Shine without being arrogant.

There's a LOT to like about Spirit, I'm extremely happy to have gotten on here. It's different, unless you've flown civilian or done a civilian training program, you can't imagine how different. But, their training is surprisingly effective, even enjoyable.

What about the 50 ME in 12 Months is that hard fast or subject to some flexibility,,,,(over 4000 jet, but due to airline collapse, got about 30 ME in 12 months).
