AA Hiring

It'd be nice if anyone here that got hired give a brief description of their work history to see what AA is looking for (generally).
I agree, but I can see why someone who got an offer wouldn’t want to give out that sort of info. The info could easily get traced back to them and could potentially get used against them in some way. After all, I imagine any offers going out today are still just tentative offers pending a background check and drug test.

I mean the posting said what they were looking for yes? Dispatch certificate, 4 year degree or multiple years experience and so on... after the basic requirements they’d likely be looking for whether or not they think they can stand to work with you for the next 30 years or not and whether or not they think you will add value to the operation or not. Maybe sprinkle in some networking and some form of management or coordinator/sector manager/superintendent of dispatch or whatever you want to call it experience. Just my opinion though, and I don’t work there

Rumor had it they are hiring 30 for one class and possibly a pool for the future. Although the classroom can theoretically hold 30 students, good luck with OJT for these guys. Offers did go out this week from what I heard.

On a somewhat related note, AA today also put out a posting for more Sector Managers. Rumor has it in addition to the 6 sector managers that went back to the floor from the bridge in the last class, even more likely put in for the job this time and may have gotten it. If that's true, that would be at least 8 and possibly more than 10 sector managers that have come off the bridge to the floor in the past two years. (FYI, I don't recommend putting in for the position as a backdoor way into dispatch.)

What does a sector manager do at AA? Are they part of the union?

There was a post a while back that showed a pay scale that seem to indicate Sector managers start at $33k a year, is that true? I thought about putting in for it until I saw that...that's a significant pay cut from my current regional...

Sector Managers are L5 management. Should start around $60-70k before any adjustments and bonuses from what I remember.

$33k is L1 pay if I remember correctly.

"Dispatch certificate, 4 year degree or multiple years experience"

What does the OR in this mean? Are they OK with a 4 year degree and only 2 years of experience then?
