RealManOfGenius,

Search GoJet and you'll get thousands of hits from this website. GoJet is part of TSH which was spun off from TSA. GJ was then formed as a whipsaw against TSA pilots. They then voted in one of the worst unions when it comes to airlines, the Teamsters.

Not Teamsters local 747 which represents airlines, but teamsters local 618 which serves a wide range of industries including Freight Carriers, Auto Dealerships, Tank Haulers etc. I'm sure they've got a better angle on it than 747...

Gojets stirred up so much hate and discontent that their very name was at one time censored on this board...

Does that tell you anything?

Couple of my former colleagues went there before we knew what they were about. By the time that I was considering the leap the word was out and I didn't even send them a resume...

don't know much about TSA or GoJets. are they Alpa? are they part of TSA?

You need to get out more. 5000 hour CRJ CA and you don't know anything about your industry. Or it could be flame bait....

Don't you remember the great Trans States strike of 2005? There was massive striking going on in STL. During this strike nothing was operating no ERJs etc... A certain group called the Gojet pilots from lower east side of STL broke that strike and not only started flying ERJs but they also got rewarded with CRJ700s. Therefore today, vicariously, you will also be labled a Gojet SCAB for going there!!! Get with the program.

How is that? is there a picket line somewhere that I'm not aware of?

It was a ********************ty backhanded deal that was handed down to TSA. There is no picket line, and GoJets pilots are not scabs. The question you have to ask yourself is, do you want to work for a SOB like that. I also would ask myself whether or not it sits well with you, knowing what you know or will know about GoJets and the reason for it's creation. I understand these are trying times and if you can get past that and need to pay the bills then all the more power to you.

They call them street captains because HoJets likes to hire employees who are living on the streets. You should see the street flight attendants.
