Anyone have any info on Hormel Corp out of Austin, Minnesota? Type of jets, pay scale, schedules...anything would be helpfull?!?!?
Professional Pilot profiled their flight dept in the Dec 2001 issue. You can get a back issue for $5, it has some good info. The address is at their website.

To hit the highlights of the article:

Astra, Galaxy and CitationII
7 Pilots, all captains
flying 35 hrs/month, with 5 RONs/month
mins for Citation FO are 3000TT, 1500Multi, ATP
no mention of pay other than "above industry average"
Hormel Foods Corp.
1 Hormel Pl.
Austin, MN 55912

507-433-2898 (F)

Roger Christensen, Chief Pilot.

IAI 1125
IAI 1125SP

Dont know anybody there but do check out the above Pro Pilot Mag on the department.
I heard they were looking for an Astra pilot for a plane kept at SNA...
You get all the SPAM you can eat!
