mrswede said:How many days off and how much money could you expect first year at Continental? Is there open time to fly?
densoo said:$29.97/hr at 76 hrs/mo guarantee.
Min of 12 days off per month.
Lots of open time now, but when PBS starts in Jan 06, not.
semperfido said:i second that observation. i have always been amazed how crappy the new guys are treated as well. they just bend over and take it-- i did too in 86.
h25b said:$27,300/yr. ??? No health insurance for 6 months ???
I love how the unions have done such a splendid job of looking out for the junior guys.
Captain Overs said:The funny thing is CAL used to be the bottom feeders when it came to pay. Now there is a new concessionary contract that was signed and it's near the middle of the pack.
densoo said:When various compensations are taken into account, not just hourly pay, I think CAL is still well behind just about all their counterparts. No overrides for international, night, overwater, subpar pension recently gutted further, no true long call reserve (crashpad costs, commuting, etc), plus the smaller things like no crew meals on any domestic leg, no uniform allowance, high copays, and a laundry list of other "no" items. Oh, but they do allow flying up to 100 hours in 30 days.
Launchpad said:Delta new hire pay is $56-58 an hour now.... Although, you won't see a new hire for quite some time....
Just an observation-
Launchpad said:Point is that after all of the years of collective bargaining at carriers like Continental, Delta, United, and American the first year pay rates at ALL OF THEM are embarrassing. Way to go ALPA/APA.
