Why is AT&T losing its pilots?

Has AT&T ever hired guys from the 121 ranks?
I know they hired half a dozen of us with 121 experience. All my colleagues with that background were FABULOUS pilots. Not sure that answers the question you asked but there you go.

FABULOUS? Does that mean they were gay?

This place is a powder keg right now. Everyone is distancing themselves from the Flight Attendant Supervisor. She could very well end up taking Director, CP, and Pompous Asst CP down with her. She and the Director can't explain this one away by giving an award like they did when she no-showed a CEO trip.

All this good info on a department in disarray and this is all you have to contribute?

Back to the private pilot forum you tool.

The Director is stuck. Because he didn't know anything about how to run a flight department, and by all accounts still doesn't, he put his faith in the Pompous Asst CP, the same guy stalking the directorship. The people the Pompous one put in place have screwed up. Bad. Now the Director has to save face by appearing to stand by the guy. Sounds like it's going to cost a lot more then the Directors diversity bonus. A true 3 Ring Circus, without a Ringmaster.

A circle jerk without a pivot man?

We could turn it into a "College degree has nothing to do with flying an airplane thread" Would that help?

Let's get this back on track then. This will be relevant to anyone wishing to become a part of this circus. Early retirement plan is in effect. The number of openings will be decided shortly. CP has been essentially gone for a couple years, will now exit the hangar. Several others are eligible, possibly a total of 4 total. The huge downside is the Pompous One may actually realize his dream of further destroying a once proud department, in spite of his long and distinguished list of "missteps". Others are circling the position, are are much more qualified. Another strong possibility is hiring an outsider to come and right this sinking ship.

Departures could end this thread as the source could be leaving

An "outsider to right the ship", I guess this is the dream of corporate pilots everywhere? As bad as our management can be, the ones designated to replace them are a lot worse (hint, Riddle grads...).

This coming from a Riddle Grad. Making disparaging remarks about a former employer is not only childish and inapropriate, but shows unsound judgement your part. It is not professional, nor particularly intelligent as we all know burning a bridge in this business comes with a cost. Why this thread continues is beyond my comprehension.

Thread continues because it is giving information on a declining department that has been hiring and will be hiring very soon. The department has been been managed into a dismal place to work, one I which the morale is incredibly low, if exist at at all. There are certainly worse departments, but from the sound of it, not many. Some poor schlub is going to look at a position there and should know what the climate is like.

I do not understand why there this "head in the sand" approach to this thread.

I have no bridge to burn as my career is on a short walk on an even shorter pier (there's your opening)
