Heard through the grapevine they may be hiring F/Os for both the 8 and the 10. Anyone know if it's true and, if yes, what the minimums are?

Seasonal is better than none at all, which is where I seem to be heading.

they are getting 6 or 7 75's, I dont know if they are replacing the 8. Ive heard arrow is not the same company as they were with the new owners. Ive actually been told by some friends in the govt that they really have their sh&t together.

If your looking for a job I would definitly consider them.

One of the things that has kept Arrow around this long is its Freight Forwarding business. Now with Matlin Patterson ownership, hopefully they will weed out the South Florida management style and become a steady place to work.

They are hiring. A friend of mine just got hired, and told me today "looks like they are going to make me a checkairman."

Unfortunately, I was talking to him via skype, and he was heading out the door. I didn't have time to ask him for what A/C and what seat he was hired into. (he had lots of time as a 757 captain)

Thanks for that. If you could find out from him at least a general idea of what their mins are and/or the type of pilots they're wanting to pick up, that would be great.

I would like some info as well. Thanks in advance.
Maybe this might help if you can make.

http://www.aeroservice.com/fair.htm

I know a few guys that had competitive times, emailed their resumes to some of the various companies that used to attend this place's fair, never get called.

Anyway, they would go to the fair, show their face and drop off a resume, and sure enough get a call.

Update:

Talked to my friend who just got hired. His is in class right now, for 757 Captain. (apparently they hire street captains, at least for the 757 anyway).

I dont know his exact times, but he had about 1000 PIC 757 (from ATA), and probably close to 5000 SIC in L-1011's, 727s, and 757s.

Good luck to all.

dosen't anyone else think that $500 a week and respomsible for own lodging during training is pretty cheap. people still need to provide for family. this is weak. although people are jumping on it. soon we will all be expected to pay to fly.

enough
Having left there in 2002 after 4 years.... better know what you'e getting into and better not be a whiner.

I liked it.

Would like to have stayed.

But, not a place to advance your stature for getting a job elswhere. Meaning upgrades do happen..but not very often. And they are getting the 57's to replace the 8 so not much need other than guys that have the insurance mins for left seat with left seat 57 experience.

Better already have that before you go.

They plan on hiring 40 pilots and to set up a pool. $500(Not perdiem) a week for six weeks during training. Hiring DC-10, DC-8 and 757 First Officer and Captain if you meet the insurance requirements for captain. Plan on purchasing 6 A330's on property sometime next year. One seniority list. They have a union (Teamsters). Best way to get an interview, attend their job fair at aeroservice.

Reserve lines get 10 days off. If you will like to fly 800 hrs or more a year the hour demand is there.

Best of Luck to all who are interested

Hi!

$500/week for training is not great, but it's comparable to others in this same category. It's a lot more than the current new-hires at FedEx make, or unemployed pilots make.

MIA job fair breifing:
They will be interviewing soon. They are sure they will hire in the -10s, probably the -8, and maybe the 757s. The bid for the 757 seats are out, and when they see who bids for it, they will know what seats need to be hired into. Hiring PFEs and FOs for sure. They may have to hire off the street Capts because a lot of low-time FOs.

They will probably hire off-the-street for the -8: Current and qualified guys. They will move to another aircraft when the -8 is shut down-some time this year.

The -10s are staying for the foreseeable future.

They are the initial buyer for the -330Fs they are getting.

When you are on reserve/call (all except the most senior guys) you have 30" to answer your phone, and then 1 hour to report after the phone call.

When I turned in my resume, they said they recognized it (I had sent in one or more in the last couple of weeks.). I think the job fairs do help.

Centurion and Miami Air were also there are hiring soon. If you are adventurous, you could check out Dana Air in Nigeria.

The only -121 company there that was hiring was GoJet.
