southwest has been doing this for years. how come no one calls it PFT?USA_Av8r said:Does anyone know what company is trying to get newhires to pay for their types before even getting a job offer from a 121 cargo carrier???? it was posted yesterday....
ps: it is through aeroservices in mia
UpNDownGuy said:Speculation: Maybe Focus?
It ain't Focus. Courtesy of an extremely confused POI, the Focus crews are out doing bounces in a 747. How'd you like to pay for that PFT!!??? "Excuse me, Captain Smith...with the aircraft rental, fuel, instructor....let's see...that comes to $58,427.22. Will that be cash or credit today?"
Are you sure about that? Can anyone post the details for those of us that don't have a membership at 350. That's particularly disturbing to those of us already at Southern, if it's true... Thanks for the info.Its Southern Air through aeroservice.

UpNDownGuy said:Sonny, you're not paying attention. It is not Focus. Let me repeat: there is no PFT at Focus. Questions?
Um..I fly for United (747-400 F/O) I am not intersted in Focus. Just pointing out what my friend had said to me. (He is ex-TWA)UpNDownGuy said:So Sonny, I take it you didn't get the job? Don't take it so hard...with your attitude, I'm sure you get turned down at LOTS of companies, not just the scumbags.
As far as the "Humpty Diddle" kids "buying a S/O job...it's called an "internship". Look it up. Focus sure didn't invent the concept. I'm sure you spout off about the UAL interns all the time, right? In any event, these kids are PAID to work for the company. They will all spend over a year working in the office before they can even talk about a S/O slot. Still not PFT, Sonny...so, back to the original point of this thread....It is not Focus doing any PFT with 747. In other words, you're STILL wrong.
Sorry they turned you down.Sonny Crockett said:Look kids....
I guess I am "wrong" since I am only going on what my buddy told me, Focus is a scumbag outfit with a SCAB D.O. (yep, he is an EAL SCAB) and selling the CAPT (Embry Internship) program or whatever the heck it is, is a scumbag move that pretty much shows where the industry is headed.
My rant over sorry to hijack the thread....
