I recieved the thanks but no thanks letter from Mesa today and after reading about them recently I took it as good news! After the interview I now realize what kind of bottom feeder operation they really are. I was actually interviewed by some former PFT puke from there program that they have. They don't even pay for your lodging while in training, gimmie a friggen break! By the way, all the people I interviewed got awarded the B-1900.

Keep on trying to interview at Mesa. We are real selective here, only the best pilots we taken. Just study harder next time, we'll keep shining up the wings for you. Its so cooool to fly 200 and 1/2. Best part about it is that Mesa Pilots are soooo coool to hang with.

No thanks, I'd rather take the job as a chief flight instructor at the busy flight school I work at and make more than a third year FO at Mesa. Hey, it's not a shiny gay regional jet but at least I get to go home every night not feeling relaxed and not worn out!

Something tells me your opinion would be much different had the letter not said no thanks.

Nothing like telling a chick she's ugly anyways after she tells you to get lost.
Pathetic.

At first I was pretty excitied, then the thought of shelling out probably over $1,000 bucks for lodging while in training ($35.00 per day x 30 days) turned me off before the letter, not to mention getting locked into the B-1900 for a while with there new contract agreements. I also heard people there are jumping ship faster than the Titanic. Can any Mesa guys chime in on the B 1900 side of the house?

How about I chime in with Mesa's $1.18/hr per diem and starting pay of $19 an hour for the 1900 FOs. Oh yeah, second pay bumps you up to $21/hr. But at least you'll be on a first name basis with the soup line help by then.

wow. did you not have a pulse?

too bad you missed the 1900. good times in ICT. zaka and hank would be your new butt buddies.

inspite of your enlightenment, stop bad mouthing mesa as you obviously are sore about not being hired. mesa pilots are professional and a great group (THEY ARE NOT YOUR F@#$ING ENEMY). Jonathon is your enemy.

wake up. every regional treats you like crap.

It probably would sound slightly better had you gotten the job offer and declined. But to be denied an employment offer; then begin your bashing seems a tad foolish to me.

Yeah dude, I mean, you did go to the interview...Kinda tough to look cool now by bashing them. Good luck on your next interview though.

Halo_RJdriver

yeah mesa has some sweet uniforms. Those former nylon instructor rain jackets that don't match anything but pavement are very professional....all the mesa crews i have ever seen look like ups delivery guys....If your pilot group is not the enemy then stop working for scab factory mesa.

So their "training" program is along the lines of Gulfsteam and TAB?

I thought they did their private - CFI and then instructed? am I wrong? If not, how are they a PFT'er? Who's flying is he taking by paying for it? Who is putting out of a job?

Yeah man, you do sound pretty defensive. If you're so bent on not working there because they are such an awful company, why did you interview in the first place. If it's becasue you wanted the "expereince" you haven't mentioned it thus far.....

Hey try Air Wisconsin, it is not the place it used to be, but it is still better than most. They are hurting people, I think they still put you during training and pay you from day one. Goodluck.
