Mtnjam said:I think in the near future it will be one of the best, if not the best regional to work for because they are really working on alot of things here and still working on company growth as well. .
airludy said:I have a interview with Pinnacle and would like to hear some stuff from current employees there....Is this a good place to work for? Pros and cons? I would like to commute from cleveland also.. Any info would be great. Thanks
blackbox said:The company makes a lot of money so its about as stable as they get. and as Mtnjam mentioned we are in contract negotiations.
Mtmjam said:Rumor is Pinnacle is or already has another 121 certificate approved for 6 EMB 170 or 190's and it can't be taken any furthur until the current contract is settled so hopefully we'll see it sooner than later
flagshipper said:Oh yeah and by the way the union does not give a rat's a$$ about about FO pay or the reserve system. all they care about is another 1 percent on the 401k because they are stuck at pinnacle for life

jackbo said:are you high? with growth coming to an end and negotiations not going anywhere, 9e is going to suck balls to be at for the next few years. if by stable you mean continuing to be a crappy place to work with tensions getting higher by the day and growth going nowhere, then it is stable.
i'm sure the 9e sim instructors keep quitting because it is such an awesome place to be. sounds "stable" to me.
blackbox said:when i said stable,I meant financially. read the context. The company is making money so its as stable as you can get. As opposed to AWAC, SKyway, and I am sure there are others.
RP170 said:Can you name a regional that's not making money? I have heard many negative things about Pinnacle. A close friend of mine has been an FO there for a year and a half and can only get lines with 11-12 days off per month and is making $24/hr. Several furloughed Independence guys also went to Pinnacle and quit during the middle of training because the training department was so poor.
blackbox said:Is getting only 11-12 days of per month in your second year really that bad? I am new to this airline thing so I really dont know. But i know at some airlines in year 2 you are still sitting reserve. the 24 dollars an hour is pathetic and hope the new contract is a lot better. It cant possibly get worse can it?
and about the Indy guys. I definitly think the training department could be a lot better. But i am pretty sure they left not because of poor training, but more because the came looking to get into the left seat right out of training. and when they found out they wuold be F/O's they left.
RP170 said:Bad compared to what we are used to at CHQ. Average of 16 days off per month right out of training. Guys are getting up to 18 day off per month lines right out of IOE. Reserve is basically non-existant.
