My crashpadder has an interview with Omni for I think the DC10 FO (although I heard they were also hiring for the 757 too). Any recent information on interview gouge, typical schedules, typical monthly pay, travel benefits, commuting, training time/location, upcoming class dates etc.?

Cheers

I interviewed there reciently. As far as a gouge for the interview, don't worry about it just relax. Nothing to tough to answer. The pay info is found at airlinepilotpay.com the rates they showed me were the same as posted there although they said that they will probably go up at the end of the contract (can't remember exactly when that is). Home basing so there really is no commuting which is nice.

From what I remember someone said, training is 7 weeks in LAS and you get $1000/month. And aren't the schedules 18on/12 off?

Just found out my friend interviewed last week and was told there is an Aug. 29 DC10 class and a later 757 and DC10 class tba. Apparently they are recieving some additional aircraft and will continue hiring.

Anyone know when the classes are planned later in the fall?

I assume they type you on the 757 to comply with international flying, but does anyone know if they type you on the DC10?

From what he described to me, the flying seems very interesting!

We used to run in to lots of Omni crews on overseas trips (ATA). They all seemed nice enough, and although I wouldn't call it a $hithole, it's just one of those places that is a stopover for most people (like TransMeridian, North American, USA3000, etc.). It's charter, so what can you expect, the pay will never be stellar but the flying is probably ok for the time being. If you just need a job, it is what it is.

Does it really matter? so much of these posts end up in the "wrong" spots, don't think it makes much of a difference. Is AirTran a major as well - there are tons of posts about them. They should just make an "SWA" and "FedEx" forum and then put everything else under "Has Been".

Hey Forgedblade as long as the criteria for being a major is 1 bil and 1% of pax enplanements than AirTran IS a major. Save the bs about our work rules and pay because it's already been debated.

I understand that the DC-10 sim training is conducted in Miami by Aero Services. I also that Omni still has openings for their Aug. 29 DC-10 class. So I hear thru the grapevine...

I wasn't debating work rules or pay and could really care less. If AirTran has made to the $1bil mark, then great, I wasn't honestly sure.

Do they actually hire at 2000 hour TT?
I think that's at the lower end of being competitive, but they seem to prefer DC-10 or 757 Part 121 experience for now.
