Be advised, many many companies, have taken themselves out of the running for these awards because it takes a lot of company resources and time to tour people and talk to people and have their employees surveyed for the representatives from the outfits who determine this stuff. Some companies refuse to pay the game and use up employee productivity to cater to those outfits and magazines. Perhaps this rueters determination was done without taking up any company's time though.
 
If it is such a great place then why do new hire pilots have no insurance for the first six months. Bottom of the majors in terms of pay and drum roll please you get to sit next to an over 60 scab tell you how great his life is while crossing the Atlantic.

This is one interview I'm glad I turned down but hey if it's a top ten job in America I must be missing something.

You are missing a lot unfortunately.

Who cares about that first 6 months of insurance (that goes by fast). Why is that such a big deal. We have free healthcare in this country, people just don't use it. I had 1 child when I got hired at CAL in 2005 and we signed her up for Peachcare is GA. It was free and covered our expenses 100% (better than having insurance). Sure, my wife nor I had coverage, but I got sick once and had a friend get a z-pack for me. Cost me $100, wow!

Maybe I should not have come to CAL because of that, yeah right. All I can say is that I have never gotten paid this much money and worked this little in my aviation career since I have come to CAL. Best decision I ever had a choice to make.

Wow. :eek:

Imagine if you didn't have that kid...and REALLY got hurt...then what would happen?

Nice avatar. Looks like you're cramping up from sucking so much management dick.

I think you are missing the point. If you want any hopes in recovering the profession, the rationalization needs to stop. Right now it is fine to go without insurance for six months. What's next, no per diem for the first year. :rolleyes: This type of thinking absolutely amazes me.

I guess when you take it out of context. My point is that we made it work instead of complaining.

Either way.....I will take my paycheck and sit at home just fine.
