Any poolies been called in for a physical since your interview or heard any good news yet. I'm in the pool and keep hoping to hear something positive. UPS is still my top choice and I can't wait to start.
I wish I had better news for you. I have been told by a good source that we will hire this year, but only about 20. Maybe you will be one of the 20 new hires. Good luck and if you want UPS bad enough you will get it.
I am also in the pool. since about last Sep. I have heard nothing from them, nor has a friend in the company. I talked to HR around Thanksgiving and she told me there were no more interviews scheduled for '01 and 81 in the pool. If anyone hears--get the word out to us!
Hi guy's.......here is my comments on UPS. In 12 years since they started up their own flight operations and did away with contractors.....I have NEVER been interviewed, had a resume reply sent to me, or any info or appliciation paperwork what soever sent to me. Internal coworkers and friends have offered, all to no avail.
For the record...... I have a 4-year degree from Embry-Riddle, Flight Dispatchers rating, 14,000 hours total time, 10,000 hrs. in FAR 121 operations, DC-8 and turbo-convair types, 8200 hrs in 4 engine heavy jet, 6000 hours in heavy turboprop, no accidents, no incidents and no FAR violations. EFIS glass cockpit and FMS/GPS flight management experience. Recently expired Top Secret Security clearance.
Extensive international experience; 92 countries, North Atlantic/N. Pacific qualified, State Dept., Secret Servive and FBI Presidential charters and many DoD MAC trips all over the world.
I do not drink, smoke, and for the most part, keep to myself.
I do have common sense frustration, and I am not asking for sympathy, but I would like to know where did I go wrong!!!!!!
WHAT DID DO!!!!!
Without more info, my best guess to how you "went wrong" can be summed up with two words: "insufficient networking". Bottom line, you need pilot referrals, and several is better than just one, and they need to be very good referrals to boot!
You know, it was sorta' amusing the first few times you resurrected a dead-and-buried, 10-15 year-old thread with a post designed to make it look current or relevant.
But it got old in a hurry, after the next 30 or so times you did it. Seriously, you don't have anything to add to anything that's actually current? Why don't you tell us all about your state-of-the-art airplane (holy crap, is that a B-52H?!*), or tell us how much you admire General Lee. Or perhaps how you find the whole US Air "east vs west vs third list vs American" food fight amusing. Or something.
Just a thought.
