Depends on the airline.  Relatively few American airlines employ
Professional Flight Engineers any more (mine -- Atlas Air -- is one
of those few).  Most of them employ "2nd Officers" that are pilots
performing Flight Engineer duties while awaiting "upgrade" to the
1st Officer's, and subsequently Captain's, seat.
