well, just got back from the 9am interview, it's 10 am currently ... we started a lil' early. because the class date is on sept. 5th, they skipped the waiting period and told me today that i was hired if i wanted it. So, sept. 5th, i'll get the joy of being in STL to start the training...really excited. Thanks for the help everone.

shoulda asked this before, but does anyone know if they pay during training? i saw on here in another post they said

60 x $22.00

so, if training is 12 weeks long, am i only getting paid for 60 hrs of that, or is that like 60 hrs a week, two weeks, lol, etc. Thanks.

My understanding is you get 60 hours per month at your hourly rate while in training.

Congrats on the job! Hope it works out for you. Hope they don't try and pull the switcheroo on ya (heard that happening to a few guys). Would be nice if that 60 hours they paid you was per week. Might as well stay in training then (never heard of any 240 hour lines at any airline I know of) Do they provide your hotel/transportation while in training? Next time Im in STL for an overnight, we should have a beer.

they really screw the guys w/ the hotel and transportation as my letter stated both were my responsibility. My old room at my parents house however is still un-occupied, so i'm gonna try to shoe-horn my way back in. lol. Should save some significant $$ this way, and it'll definatley help with surviving on first officer salary.

Congrats on becoming a "Waterskier". Use the company for what it is, a place to build your time and move on. Try to keep a positive outlook, it will be hard, but you will fly with some great guys and learn alot from them.

Best of luck!

Former Waterskier '99-06
