i have an interview in august. just keep updating your stuff. have heard steady hiring in the forseeable future, but fedex people will know better than i. anyone heard rumors about the international mail contract???
I am in the class starting monday 7/29. I have heard fedex might do the same thing they have done for the last couple of years.....that is keep hiring going until about October, then shut hiring down and send the instructors to the line for peak season......then restart hiring next January. This is not for sure, but it is what they have done in the past.
I just received my call from Kim Daniels Thursday, 25 July and was hired. Although she didn't tell me anything about interviews (I was concerned with classdates), she did say that there should be a class of 24 in Sep and October. I was told I was in a hiring pool of about 30 people, and would probably receive a class date to begin sometime in October.
I talked with KD on 29 July. Interviewed 15/16 July, she said she was putting together September classes this week and more realistically I would be in an October class due to pool size. I think October classes are still unofficial, but highly predicted.
I just got the good news call today for a Sept. 23 class date. I do not have any other info. at all on the size of the class or equipment assignments,ect.(sorry).
All I heard was Sept. 23 and congrats and the rest was a blurr.
No more U(USAirways) 2 FDX just FDX now thank God.l
Congratulations on getting hired by FedEx! I too was a US Air furloughie. It's nice to have all of that behind us. This place is great, you're going to love it! FedEx has a gameplan and really seem to have their collective act together. I wish I could say so much for our last employer. Good luck in class and welcome aboard.
What percent of the new hires at FEDX would you guys say are from the regionals. It seems that it would be very very small. Also has this always been the case and could it just be the result of the economy and the experience thats out on the street? ...Man you guys are lucky, I would love to work for FEDX one day... Looks like I should have stayed in AF ROTC in college...
Keep your head up! I worked at the regionals for five years, before that, I flew charter in light twins for three years. Was hired by FedEx almost a year and half ago. In every class there is someone from the regionals. Peristence, hard work, and as always a little luck will get you the job(e.g. it is possible to get an interview without a letter of rec).
