What I knew about them a few years back was long tenured employees. I was talking with an A&P that had something like 18+ years and still didn't have the seniorty to bid days. Back then they had a 401K and Pention...!! They had very little turn over and were very hard to get hired on with. Now......?? I really can't say. This business has changed multi fold.

As far as the transition... a plane is a plane. If you know what side of the screwdriver to use you're ahead of most of the new A&P I've seen lately. Have you tried looking at an airline that flies the Ejets...?? jetBlue, Republic...? Much closer to the 737 and it's systems.
