Haha thanks, my phone sucks.
No prob. I deleted my reply so you can take all the credit.
Wasn't Alaska the airline that shocked the world a few months ago by hiring for the first time in years? And now they are again?
No, Alaska has been pretty consistent in hiring at least once a year since probably 2010-11 now.
So anyone who might be at Alaska can help me with something?
I was filling out the application, hit the next button on the bottom, and next thing I know the application says submitted. No chance to review or go over anything before final submission. Is that normal or did I mess something up? Every other online job application I have ever done allowed a final review before submission, so it totally caught me off guard. Think I should cal HR and clarify? I got the email that confirms they received it.
You may be thinking of Horizon.
Any idea how big the class will be?
I'm happy where I am, but Alaska just had a huge pay raise if anyone wants to know.
I have a fuzzy memory, but it was something like $35-60 now.
do you mean they start a 35 an hour and top off at 60
i know they were at 29.9 to start not too long ago
Yep. They just signed a new contract that is the envy of the LLC world.
cool, any news on the VX merger? how is that working out for dispatchers ?
Any update here? have they started interviewing?
Well they haven't called ME, so clearly they haven't done ANYTHING yet.
Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Anyone get a call for an interview or know anyone who has?
Any updates here?
Last I heard, it sounded like the one position that was open was most likely being filled by an internal candidate.
It's official; class of three starts at the end of May. All external hires.
Very good news to hear!
