Has anyone received an ATA application in the mail recently?

If so...

When did you first apply?

What are your flight times?

Have you heard anything back?

If so, how long did it take between returning the app and hearing from them?

Thanks for the info.

Faxed my resume on Jan 23, 2002

Received application around Feb 8.

Completed & Returned on Feb 15.

The application asks for far more thought than most other airlines. It contains 9 essay questions. I had a xerox copy from a friend's app prior to receiving mine, so I was able to have it ready to go upon receipt. Otherwise, it probably would have taken me longer than a week to complete.

ATA App

I applied sometime in August and received an application around Feb 8th as well. I filled out and returned the application something like 2 years ago and never heard anything. When you do get the app I am told to spend the time on it because this will weed people out based on the essay questions. Now I have a job with EJA so I guess I'll file it away.

The latest system bid through the Fall shows a net increase of 8 airplanes for the year. At 6 crews per airplane....gonna need to hire about a 80 - 100 folks this year. But they haven't said anything officially.

Good Luck

Embarrasing, miserable, pitiful. Let's just say I made more as a commuter Captain then I have after almost 4 years here.

That being said we are in the end game of negotiations the result of which will be an industry standard payscale.

Which Industry? The CAL, SWA, industry or the UAL, DAL, AA. Perhaps somewhere in between. Could you post the new pay scale and other benefits that have come about with the new contract when they become available. Do you think you all will get CAL +10%? Keep us informed.

Thanks

When we get a new contract I'll let you know. My guess is that ATA75Pilot will be flying blue and orange 737s before ATA's contract is settled...

As far as payscales go...pre 9/11 management was walking around talking about CAL +10%. Now the offer on the table is considerably lower. Right now it is looking like a real possibility of a strike occuring. At the very least I see it going as far as the 30-day cooling off period.

The success of the company was in no small part attibuted to the hard work, sacrifices, and dedication of some of the finest aviators bar none. It is time to reward these folks with a salary and benefits package commensurate with our place in the grand scheme of things.
