Default Trans States Hiring

Anyone have thoughts on Trans States. I have been offered a class date a couple months away. I am looking for info on their work rules, and how management/crew sked works with their pilots. Please only include factual info, no hearsay about GoJets. Just the facts, please

I am also waiting on a class. I hear the work rules are fine as far as regionals go. Relations with sked I dont know much about but the resounding theme I hear among all regionals is dont expect favors from sked. even if you play ball and help out. I'm waiting to find out more specifics myself....

Well I interviewed on 1/25, and I know that U-I pilot also interviewed on 1/25. There's also one more that I know of from 1/25 who's waiting for a class date.

If you go to TSA, is there any gurantee they won't pull the ol' switcheroo and send you off to GoJets? I'm also curious what kind of times you guys had to get interviews. I am about 500 hours short of their mins but they say they hire below those times "at their discretion". What does that mean? Does that mean if you are willing to go to GoJets they'll hire 400 hour wonders from Gulfstream?

No word on the switcheroo but i'd be angry. GO APPLY. On the day we interviewed the highest time of 6 was 1100TT. I was lowest....I'm embarressed to say real times but lets go with below 850tt and less than 75 ME....get the picture?
If they try to pull the switch on any of us, I am going to pursue talking with National Mediation Board and ALPA reps because that would be contradictory to information they have supplied in regards to Union Representation....

From what I jave been told, Go Jets is completely seperate from Trans States in the sense that, if you interview with Trans States, you will fly for trans states. I interviewed on February 1. When I left TSA, the last thing they told me was hopefully a March 13 class date?? Couldn't be for sure though.
