Does working for EA help your chances for working with Delta like Eagle is to American?
In order to get into mainline you're gonna need at least 3 years experience. I'd say if you can get on with a 121 that has international operation it would ideally improve your chances versus working at Endeavor. But if that's your only offer then so be it.
This gentleman is looking specifically at delta who does have a hard 3 year dispatch requirement for externals. Internals need 3 years operations type experience plus their dispatch license. Then the networking begins!
American had a "hard" one year at AMR requirement for internals until management at AA decided to change that policy to hire a few Eagle dispatchers with less than a year in company. If Delta wants someone with less than 3 years experience, they can and will change that 3 year policy. There is no such thing as a hard requirement. They all change what they want based on the moment they are hiring.
As far as Endeavor, Delta has for now slowed down the CRJ200 retirements and with CRJ900s coming they are not looking at furloughing as of now. But it is definitely something to be concerned about. I also wouldn't bank on getting into Delta by going to Pinnacle. There is no flow from Pinnacle to Delta. Your chances are as good as any other person trying to get in to Delta. Go to Pinnacle for the experience and connections, not for Delta.
Last 2 classes had no endeavor air dx. Internals, Expressjet, compass, united and plenty of others. A DCI dispatcher may have a very slight edge if they get to the panel interview. But based on the melting pot of those hired, I would doubt it.
There was one from Pinnacle/Endeavor hired in the last class.
In general, that might be true. However, there are numerous exceptions. I know several people hired externally in the past two years by United, Southwest, and American that had a lot less than three years experience dispatching. Internally, of course, can get you hired with no experience dispatching. It all depends on who you know, what you know, your timing, and what the airline is looking for at that time.
Instead of building experience, building connections is probably a lot more important. You can have 10 years at any regional or supplemental carrier and no major will touch you but that same major will hire someone straight from dispatch school that has the right connections.
