Seems like everywhere I look - someone is just barely getting under the FAA's nose..

Is there anywhere in the SE that is a decent place to work?

Um, no. ..and it only gets scarier the closer you get to Miami. The FAA does not have the resources, nor the personel to go after everyone. The places that actually do follow the rules pay next to nothing wages like the crooks, only they give you a taxable paycheck whereas the shady ones pay you daily, in cash under the table. Those who have been there are smirking as they read this...

Geez. This is in the corporate forum, right?

What about:
Coca Cola
Home Depot
Krispy Kreme
Waffle House
ChikFilA

Aren't those 5 of among the best flight departments in the country? All based in the SE?

That's up to you. The thread title wasn't 'Reputable Operations in the Southeast that will hire anyone who submits a resume' :)

I go down to PDK a lot and have been impressed with what I have seen of the Epps Aviation operation/crew. Lots of PC-12s, King Airs, Lears, Citations...looks like a pretty good place to work to me but I don't really know.

Krispy Kreme sold a Falcon not too long ago, dont know if they still have anything, but I've heard negative things about the department over the years.

In SC you have BMW North America, Milliken...
In NC you have Bank of America, Lowes, Coca Cola Bottling Consolidated, Wachovia, Family Dollar, Duke Energy, Progress Energy, Carquest, Food Lion, BB&T RJReynolds, SAS, VF Corp...

These are just a few of the good operators in NC/SC. As someone mentioned earlier though, jobs openings at these are few and far between.

Yeah. There is not a single good job in the Southeast. Besides, why would you want to live hear? We are all just a bunch of crooked, cousin loving, red necks, right?

All they have left is one Lear 60. The company as a whole is not doing well because of the low carb diet stuff.

Want some donuts? mmmmmmmmmmmm donuts!

The trick is knowing the difference between a "Corporate Flight Department" and a "Shelter for Battered Pilots".
