Got Hired By CO Today

Tue Nov 13, 2007 6:17 pm

Just got the phone call that I have been hired by Continental Airlines to work ground ops here in CMH. This is a big blessing as I wasn't really sure what I was going to do since B6 is pulling out in January. Anyway, I was very impressed with what they told me about the company, so I am crazy excited to be staying in the airline industry. Anyone from CO have any comments or anything?

Lol, I should probably consider it. I chose this one about a week before they announced they were pulling out of CMH.

Then I would recommend your new username not mention CO.  Wink

CMH definitely seems to be a good place to work for CO aircraft variety. I can see the current schedules have 737s (73G, 733. 735, 738), Q-200s, ERJ, CRJ. Does each ramp agent have the opportunity to work them all?

I am not exactly sure, but I would think so in a smaller station here like CMH.

Good news!  Smile

If its truly in your blood as it seems to be, you won't be frusterated by much because at the end of the day your company is an airline and you truly have the world at your hands!

Enjoy and good luck at CO!

Congratulations and welcome to the to company. You might want to check the books "Maverick" and "Worst to First" out of the library. They would give you a pretty good background of the airline and where the corporate philosophy is today. Did they tell you where you would be going for your training?

Yeah but good luck getting a seat. Those planes are absolutely booked full 11 months out of the year and you have to be extremely careful or you will get stuck. All I can say is thank goodness for the jumpseat.

He sure will. Even at the hubs you can get delegated to the RJ's if they need help or to the mainline, minus the wide bodies, if they are short there.

I've been with CO for 21 years. It' been a great ride. I work MX at IAH
