Allegiant??

Otto Coarsen

What's new at Allegiant? Any talk of hiring soon? Any chance of getting Denver if hired??

Looks like a good place to be. I wish I remembered the name of the Allegiant FO I sold my Honda Accord to... Do the only interview people with internal rec's?

Thanks!

They've hired for the AUG class which is supposed to be the last week of August. They should be interviewing for a Sep/Oct class in the next 2 or 3 weeks I would think. Internal recs help, but are not required. About half of the 12 in my class had one..

15 airplanes on the certificate now, with 21 expected by years end.

Denver is no longer a base... Right now LAS, RNO, IFP, & SFB are the bases.

Fax number is 702-851-7301

Why is this in the "majors" forum? Good company, but not a major by any stretch of the imagination.

What's the difference bender? There's not a nationals forum, and the Allegiant guys tend to read this side. MD-80's are Major's eqpt so, I guess that's why. American Eagle is a Major by definition, So is skywest. Why do newhire fo's not ask questions in here??

It's $41 an hour as of 8/1.

Yea . . . at $39 an hour and a buck perdiem.
The F/O rates have gone up $2 an hour. Captain rates have increased by $5 an hour.

An F/O should make about $35K the first year and make Captain in 1 - 1.5 years.

We are still fighting for increases and better work rules. We have made some good progress, but still have a ways to go.

I am in my 3rd year and make $80 an hour. So all you regional types that used to say, "80 for 80", I still think of you with great disdain. Now I are that guy!!!

I used to work for a couple a "majors". I never made $35K the first year or had the chance to upgrade the first year.

I am 42 years old and should be flying the same equipment with red paint on it for a nice six-figure salary, but I'm not.

It is what it is. You don't have to apply. On the up side, we don't have problems with the regional feed, flow throughs, flush-backs, whip sawing the flying to a contract carrier, etc.

I am paying the bills and always keeping my options open.

Best of luck to all,

Jeff

Major in a way.

Why the Major's board? Hmm...let's see. Pilots from TWA, American, Delta, United, ATA, Eagle, Skywest all fly at Allegiant.

Sounds like the Majors need Allegiant!

And glad to have a home until recall, too.

quote, by bender: " why is this the majors forum?"

the banner says aviation interview related stuff only.

National, West Air and USAir.

Major Woody or Private Parts, we probably qualify for all those sections.

majors board?

Well maybe this Flight info should seaperate the airlines by Profeitable or Loser, Red and Black airlines.....

Allegiant is doing fine and in the black......I think we all realize the glory days of earning over $200+ an hour are gone for good....I am satisfied just earning a paycheck doing what I like to do.....it could be alot worse.

to helgeson: and you're not a smart a$$?


The point was that anal retentive prics like you constantly assault a thread with spelling, grammar, rules of engagement, ad nauseum!

Congrats on your new job!

$80/hr on an MD80 as Captain after 3 years is not industry standard even at the feeders. How sad, how very, very sad.

You're right... The pay isn't stellar. But, things are improving as the company grows and the pay will continue to increase.
