I didn't buy into this job to wallow at 10 to 15 k as a flight instructor for years working obscenely long days.
For your information. I no longer have any desire to work at an airline. Way to unstable and pay is dropping like a brick. I would much rather fly for a large corporation at this point.
Anyone got a kleenex for this guy?
Listen to him. "My Daddy could have got me a 100K job.' Wahhhh. B.S. I've spent my time in MI and know people at the automakers and not too many people get that kind of starting salary right out of school. Fresh grads are pretty worthless because they lack real experience and need a lot of training. Maybe you can get your Daddy to buy a big corporation and put you in charge of the flight department.
I've got news for you bucko. A lot of those corporate jobs aren't much more stable than the airlines. When a company starts losing money guess what gets sold off in a hurry? Also you've got fractionals swooping in and grabbing flying that used to be done by the flight department.
Do us all a favor and go back to school for that engineering degree. Then you can be another weekend warrior that we can complain about when he can't communicate properly with ATC. You don't sound like you have a place in this industry.
A guy that did some wallowing for 10-15K as a CFI for too long
