Anyone know if Atlas regularly hosts recruitment information webinars for applicants?

Not sure about webinars, but they have just finished a recruitment tour down the East Coast.

So why does Atlas need to take foreign pilots to plug the shortage if the contract is all roses?

Probably because it is all roses compared to the offerings in Australia.
Compared to the offerings for those with an unrestricted ability to live and work in the US there might be even better options.

Its all relative.

I could be wrong but his is how I have had it explained to me. This might be more beneficial if commuting from Perth.
national will commute you but only after you do 160 hours per month.. not kidding and they donít pay overtime either. From what Iíve heard they couldnít organise a root in a brothel with a fist full of fifties and their pants around their ankles.

You cannot fly 160 hours in FAR land. Are you talking about duty time? Or time away from base?

Yes so basically kiss goodbye to one of the benefits of working in the US (lower taxes) if you plan to commute. Apparently it's a great place to live if you like guns tho

A lot of rubbish being said here ^^^^

National commutes you home at the end of your 18 days, irrespective of hours flown.
They don’t have overtime per se but they have a flat hourly rate - 120 bucks per hour first year Fo. If you choose to work on your GDOs they pay 200 percent. ( percentage paid for GDOs is announced each month).

Australopethicus- you can fly 160 hours per month - National is 121 supplemental. 30 hr duty days, an 350 hrs max in 3 months.

How refreshing to see a post containing factual, useful information.
