My bro works for compass and he loves it there! Alot of ex champion and Midwest/Skyway guys as well as XJ. I think it has slowed but they are hiring. I'll call him up and post what he says
That might be a little old because now I believe they actaully want 1500TT and 1000 multi, either way still good to see some stuff out there.:nana2:
According to the pilots, they are understaff. Management thinks they are not. I've heard they are interviewing people for a pool, but there is no word for an actual new hire class in the near future.
They still typing everyone as PIC? I have a buddy out there and he's in heaven but his dream was to be an airline pilot.

For anyone at Compass, can you advise on QOL, reserve life, the management, schedueling. I am looking into a putting a resume. And if you commute how is it to Compass? If you want PM with all the "real details" of the company.
