I was wondering where people are getting placed right out of training, also how long does it take to get based in Tampa or JAX?

Thanks

These days new-hires are getting JAX/TPA right away. ROA/ORF seem to be the most Jr. bases. Some guys are sitting reserve in JAX for up to 9 mos. Hopefully, that time will diminish as we bring more people on-line. Jax used to have the best lines, but now TPA's are better. It seems to revolve every few months. Good luck!

Peidmont Bases

Just wondering how hard it is to switch your home base. If I got put in JAX right out of traning but really wanted to be based out of say Maryland is it a big deal to make a switch like that?

thanks

Not really

All you have to do is change your bid monthly. If you wanted to change every month, if there was an opening in the base and you had the seniority to hold it, you could. moving would get a little expensive but hey, more power to ya.

Another thing

For anyone that is interested. Orf just added 17 FO's this month so that base may be a little harder to get in to the next few months. Openings for April is as follows

ORF 5
JAX 2
TPA 2
EWN 6
ROA 4
SBY 2
CHO 3

Try again...

Posted this as a new thread as well, by mistake....

Send your resumes to Robert Trout, Corporate Recruiter.

He goes by Bob in person, and he's the new hire guy at Piedmont.

Good luck!
