Heard that Coke in Atlanta was looking at hiring fivr for their flight department. I was able to get my resume in before they shut down the site. Anyone have any info as to interviews, hiring, etc?

Two reserve captains were hired last week. Supposedly two more pilots will be hired next month and then another the following month. I heard the next batch will be of pilots in the 3000TT range, then the last pilot a low timer.

The last I heard was that there aren't any co-pilots per se'. All of the pilots are typed and captain qualified. I had heard that the new dept mgr wants to get away from the contract pilot stuff and hire at least five pilots. Heard the same thing that two are pretty high time, two mediocre time and then one on the low side. All I know for now.

And they have at least one Sikorsky (S-76?) that I've seen twice in NC. Oh ... and they wear really cool ties, too.

The helo is not operated by the flt dept in Atlanta. More than likely it's one of the bottling divisions or a subsidiary. They run a Jetstream in the same manner around the south. CLT, CHA, etc.

If the tail numbers end in FH then it is the bottling company out of Chattanooga, TN. They have an S-76, a G-III, and an Excel. They are moving their department to Charlotte sometime this year. They used to have a jetstream but now they have an Excel.

guys,
mabey this will help:
coke has three separate flt depts. one operating out of tn, the other 2 in atlanta. all 3 are separate companies and have no connection with each other.
coca cola co. operates gulfestreams and placed an ad for copilots middle of march. i heard they got over 1000 responses.
coca cola enterprises, also in atlanta, operates hawkers, citations, challenger and isnt looking for pilots.
neither is coca cola consolidated.
i researched this job heavily, and heard they hired their guys early april. if theyre still looking, the only way to get the job is to know someone inside or mabey walk in the front door and sell yourself. its supposed to be a stellar job.
if you find out anything, let me know.
eric

Vrefus is correct...my buddy interviewed within the last two weeks for one of the reserve captain positions, and was told the same thing Vrefus posted. BTW, he DID NOT know anyone on the inside.

There has been a lot of turnover in that department in the last few years - I wonder why?

Wondering if any of you who have replied with friends who know something on the inside have any helpful information to share......... Anything would be helpful............. FYI the lady said they were inteviewing 6 people in the two days and most were from out of town............

I worked a few doors down from Big Coke at KFTY a few years ago. At that time they had a lot of problems within their Flight Dept. I knew one guy that had only worked there for a short time, and the impression that I got was that It was a bad place to work. Maybe that has all changed now?

I don't know. I've had two friends, including a former chief pilot, go there stay about a year, then leave. They didn't like the corporate culture. I have another friend who recently went there and has stayed. They threw an awful lot of money at him, bought his house and so forth, to get him to go. I haven't talked to him since he went to Charlie Brown. Of course if you leave in less than a year, you have to pay back that great big executive moving package.
