Wages: All full-time and part-time drivers start at a wage rate of $8.05/hr. However Flight Line guarantees a minimum of $15/hr compensation over our two week pay period (NOT PER DAY). The guarantee of $15/hr in earnings for your two week pay period is figured by adding your base wage times the hours worked plus reported tips (All trips have 15% gratuity included in fare) and bonuses (Pay for such things as starting early AM or getting off early AM) divide the total by hours worked . If this figure is less $15/hr in compensation over our two week pay period- Flight Line makes up the difference. Average compensation over two weeks wages plus tips plus bonuses can be in the range of $17 – $18 Both Full and Part time drivers are paid for all hours worked at straight time; there is NO overtime pay.
80 hour of work guarantee over our 2 week pay period for Full Time Drivers. Full time driver works 5 days a week (one of those days must be Sat or Sun) The driver must be available to be on duty up to 12 hours for each work day with no restrictions . Usual On Duty time per day is about 10-11 hours. Drivers who meet these conditions are guaranteed 80 hours of wage pay per hour over two week pay period. Full time Drivers usually average about 90 hours over a two week pay period . There are certain conditions but if a full time driver does not get his/her 80 hours over two week pay period (.e.g. say 75) . The Flight Line would pay 5 hours times the drivers wage per hour as a bonus to make up the shortage.
Hiring: All applicants are to understand that no one is hired until they have successfully completed our driver training program to the satisfaction of the trainer. Applicants will be given a driving test plus additional training by a supervisor. Applicants who do not pass the Driving Test portion will not be paid.
