Default Company Vibe

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone could give me some insight to the company culture, pilot group, contract (start of negotiations and when does the contract end), QOL, what bases run junior, do you like the company and would you recommend it to a new hire, future if the company, basically everything and anything.

I live in South Florida so regardless of which regional I choose, Iíll have to commute for a bit.

Itís a dead forum because TSA is a dying regional. Everyone who could answer OPís questions is too busy filling out applications trying to get out of the dumpster fire.

The pilot group is great, only a select few who arenít. Contract negotiations are underway but the company is already dragging their feet. QOL is nonexistent due to how short staffed we are. You will be used and abused as an FO here. Junior assignments, extensions, and reroutes are the norm. The IAD/DCA co-domicile is the junior base, expect to be based there for quite a while. Would I recommend the company to a potential new-hire? Absolutely not.

If you live in south Florida I would recommend going somewhere with a MIA base. Hope thatís more helpful.

You wont be in IAD/DCA for a really long time. After around 6 months people are getting out to the base they want excluding RDU. It's a stagnant base.

Most junior FO in DEN is a 07/05/17 DOH. Stop lying to new hires.
