The flight benefits are about it really. Aside from that, there is that collective culture that everyone tries to help.Cons
The 1300 hour limit for ready reserves makes it tricky to swap shifts when you need to, and is still counted against you when they freeze your schedule during irregular operations (i.e. severe weather). At the same time, doubling up seems to be easier to do in some of the hubs like Atlanta, Minneapolis, Detroit, etc despite some bases having high seniority, making it harder to work your way up. If you want to move up in the company, then you'd have to be open to relocating. Your shifts fluctuate about every six months when you bid again based on seniority, so over time it does provide more flexibility in your daily life if you choose to stick it out.

remember to use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action & Result) method when answering interview questions, always smile and be upbeat! These are some questions they may ask or questions simular to these. There are two interviewers in the room and the are writing the whole time you are talking. But don't be alarmed they are listening carefully.

After that they gather all the groups together in the meeting room and conclude the process by saying they will contact you via email to let you know if you are hired which they do do, however if there are candidates that have stood out they keep them behind and explain that they have additional information they need to get from these people. They called six names and I was one of the six asked to stay behind.
We were offered the job and whisked away to HR to complete some paperwork.
