Since I started working in the aviation business, I have worked for five different airlines, and I've moved a total of six times. Only two of the moves were paid for by the company. One of the moves was due to a headquarters change of location, so the company had to pay for the move...the other paid move was to work for my previous employer in Wisconsin. The policy there has now changed and they no longer pay for new hire relocation costs. My current employer did help some with some move expenses (hotel, per diem, etc.) but did not pay for the movers. I am hopeful that the last long-distance move was my last one until I retire...although in the airline industry, you can't ever take anything for granted.
