How long did it take after submitting your resume did they call for an interview? I recently faxed them my stuff and was wondering how long it takes if they are interested. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
If you can stay away from that place, do it. They give a bad name to all 121 operations. The guys
who are writing back to you aren't telling you
the truth of things...they scam on the pay...
planes break down so often...few kids are running
the show down in VA...ex-cheif pilot, chief pilot, DO, are bunch of ill fated peolpe. If you go,
watch your ass..its your license. Good luck.
The place certainty isn't a poster child for a perfect operation. To say that they give a bad name to all 121 operations is far from the truth. I'm not a spokesperson for Colgan, but it's not that bad a place to work. We have our share of problems here, but from reading posts about other carriers, they don't appear to be problems specific to Colgan. We are a non union family owned business.
Albotross either worked, works, or was rejected by Colgan and feels very strongly against the company. It takes an awful lot to get fired here, so maybe that's where his or her gripe comes from..
In the year + I've been with the company, not one pilot has been violated by the FAA for anything other than knowingly violating the 34/7 rule.
Go to the interview and make your own decision. The type of flying, and aircraft used are not for everyone. If you're looking for some excellent experience this is a good place to be. We're adding 4 "D" models to the fleet in the coming weeks..
