Well, I didn't get the interview after all for GIV/GV job. HR department cut me based on experience level(or lack there of). I suppose the chief pilot was just throwing me a bone. Oh well....another day. I can't honestly say I felt I had a real shot anyway. There are just too many pilots out there with a lot more under their belts than myself. Too bad though cause I'm fun as hell to fly with;)

Don't you sometimes wish everyone else could just tell how d*mned cool you are just by looking at you?! Anyway, I'm just gonna keep plugging away in the commander.

You know at times there is a lot of b!tching that takes place around here, but all in all, we've got sweet jobs. I know I wouldn't want to be sitting in a box all day pushing paper would you?

Take er easy guys!

With an attitude like that, you won't have much trouble finding your dream job. Tough break though. I agree with you, we've got sweet jobs. I would go postal if I had to sit in a box and push paper all day!

Sorry it didn't work out for you, but... You will wind up where you are supposed to wind up. When you land the job you are really supposed to have you won't even think twice about losing out on this one.

I agree with the sentiments here. Hang in there and you'll be sitting pretty in no time.

Nah, I'm definitely not an XJet type. I've no desire to do that kind of fly and for that kind of pay. Hell, most of the time I don't even care if I'm building time as long as I'm having fun and gettin paid. In fact, I only flew 175 hrs in 2003 and loved it! It confuses most people that I'm not out trying to build a lot of time. I honestly just want a company to treat me well, pay me fairly, and I'll stay as long as it's good.

Several years ago, I thought I wanted the hours to get into the airlines..... BOY!! what a difference 9/11 made!... Nowadays, I'm happy with my current job and the potential for a better future!!

That's what I thought also. However, I saw the light so to speak. I realized that my personality is far more geared to the personal interactions of 91 flying. I really dig different destinations and "knowing" the folks I haul around. I actually really like the survey work I'm doing now. I go to work in flip flops and shorts, don't shave, and call all the shots....not too bad really:)

Just re-read one of snakum's earlier posts and realized it was directed at Flying Illini. My mistake<~~~~I'm a skim reader sometimes;)
