For a career pilot this may be a great place to lead a team for your waning years or for a new pilot, up and coming, Atlantic Southeast Airlines hiring outlook is only rosier and rosier.
The hiring process at Atlantic Southeast Airlines is probably a mix of the old and the new. First off, of course, if you want to be a pilot, you have to have your license as well as a reviewable pilot’s log of several thousands of hours. But the initial application, while resume and cover letter through mail or fax are fine, probably isn’t as recognized as, say, online application. So you need to reorganize your expectations of what the interview process is in order to be successful. While you’ll certainly get a sit down with the hiring manager, there seems to be so much less time to do things in a fully traditional fashion; the planes have to take off.
Foe example, just this past December 20, 2006, Skywest Inc. announced that eight new aircraft will be transferred to Atlantic Southeast Airlines and will be operated out of Delta’s terminal hub in Cincinnati beginning in January, 2007. This shows that while other airlines like Delta are going the way of the dodo bird, new species like Atlantic Southeast Airlines, are thriving.
