Hows the company looking? Fat on pilots or is there going to be a need within the next few months?

Hiring could go either way. Seems to be in a slump right now, but there are rumors floating around about more UPS routes in the midwest.

I was going to respond again, but I thought I'd just wait a bit and you'd chime in.:)

260 hours isn't going to get you very far here at AMF unless you're looking for an FO position on the Brazilia and those are few and far between. FAA requirement for captains is 1200 hrs. But then again, I haven't been to work in 3 weeks so I'm not the most up to date. The place hasn't gone under without me, has it guys?

What are the chances of getting hired directly into the Metro or 1900 for someone with roughly 4000 Total and 2200 total in the 1900?

Ya I know which is why I said I have about 6 months to go before I apply. To be honest right about now Im content with gettin on the Bro as an FO. I need a job and as long as it pays better than the last company I interviewed at Ill be happy.

With low time, you might want to consider Airnet. They have more bases in the midwest by you, and they'll hire you with less than 1200 as an FO on the barron until you have enough time to upgrade.

You could probably swing a metro or 1900 with that, but it won't be within a base due to seniority, so it would be an outstation or one of the bases that nobody else wants back in the Midwest.

What bases in the midwest do people not want? Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't get someone's hopes up about going straight into a Metro or 1900, there's not even any of those up for internal bid right now.

On the other hand, if there were more runs awarded, and for some reason we couldn't fill them internally, then maybe. But seriously, I'm thinking there's enough people to itching to upgrade that those internal bids won't go unfilled for quite some time.

If I'm wrong, you'll see it here:

At the moment, the only postion they're outsourcing is the PHX ACP.

If you want to go to burbank, you better bring a sack full of cash that you're willing to part with. California is rediculously expensive. I grew up in CA and all of my family lives there and I still wouldn't go back because of how much it costs. My brother's 1 bedroom apartment is $1400 a month...

I seriously don't know how/why people afford to work for AMF in Burbank / Oakland. At 28K a year you'd have to live like a hobo or with 3 other guys in a 2 bedroom place.

In that case I guess I won't be living in Burbank I have way to many loans to payback besides trying to afford rent like that.
