Graduated '03, then worked there from '05-'07. Unfortunately the economy has taken it's toll though and as mentioned above they just "furloughed" approximately half the CFIs for the summer (maybe longer), maybe not quite that many but I don't expect them to be looking for new hires for some time unless some big changes are made. Last I heard also the incoming fall class is smaller, or at least they were behind on the numbers from this time last year. Could change though, don't give up hope it's a great job if you can get it. Yes you start entry level and go through curriculum to get up to level 3, but it's all paid for by them, no cost to you...this year there has been some slowing in the upgrading though due to that cost, but I would think if they need the CFIs back in the fall/whenever, there will also be a need perhaps for the upgrading again. One other thing, after getting F'd from my 121 gig I was able to go back and do a little instructing there last fall, they just couldn't afford to keep me on after that but still a cool thing to be able to come back to so if you're good to them they'll be good to you.
