Just finished IOE and got a call from skywest. (just an interview not a job) If god did smile down on me and i was offered a first officer positon, would you guys if in my shoes jump ship. At the moment im flying the ERJ-145 (The company is great as long as altereGJ sinks. Skywest is just closer to home for me......and its SKYWEST)

Over the course of a several year career stage, the ability to not commute may prove a huge benefit in QOL.

As regards trying to decipher the future of any company vs. another in this industry: well, good luck with that...

There were guys in my newhire class leaving other regionals that had almost a year of senority. It all depends on you. Are you willing to go into the EMB or only the RJ? Which company has better bases? etc.

Its gonna hurt a lot worse after you've spent a year at that job and are enjoying being off probation and second year pay. That along with the guys that are under you on the seniority list. If you want SkyWest and get the offer, take it. Its gonna be a much tougher decision after year 1.

SkyWest may be comming up on the tail end of a hiring boom. The last delivery is Feb 06, so it would be better to go to SKW now than to wait.

No joke. Not to be Capt. Grammar here, but I am continually amazed at how ignorant the pilot group seems to be regarding the english language. I feel like that Indian in those '70's commercials crying over pollution. ;)

Go to skywest...just ask the several hundred former TSA pilots we have here at SkyWest. not even close. (plus you can replace the clown that's leaving here next week to FauxJets as a street captain.) Also, is there a GJ list outhtere I can get from someone???

I would......but it wouldnt be the training i would be worried about. Its the no pay during the 6-8 week training period that would suck.

If all airlines were to stop hiring, which airline would you rather be at for the rest of your career? If the answer is Skywest ... might as well go there now and get it over with.

Stay where you are, the QOL at Skywest is not that great, we need a union bad. If you think you are going to get a west coast base forget about it, they are very senior and all growth is going to ORD, DEN and COS. The other big question is what happens if they merge the senority list with ASA. Your going to be a career FO just like me. Anyway just my 2cents, good luck.

As a Trans States Escapee to SKYW I can tell you that every aspect of the change has been positive. Why didn't I do this earlier?! No pay during training was not fun, but that is the price of admission.

While there is no getting around the fact that training is not very fun, the experience is not at all like Trans States. Much more positive, if you put out the effort they will get you through. Not like Trans States where they seem to have a goal of washing out a certain percentage.

The domiciles in CA (except maybe FAT) and SLC are very senior, with everything that implies. Basically, many of the people in this company don't want anything to do with east of the Rockies. However, if you deal with DEN or ORD you will move up fast.
