I guess I’m crazier then I thought. I received this email about 2 days after the psych test. it's back to the loony bin/mesa for the next 24 months for me.....


.......Thank you for your interest in the pilot position with United Airlines. At this time, we have other candidates who more closely meet our requirements. You are welcome to reapply for consideration 24 months from the date of this correspondence.

We wish you the best in your future endeavors.

Best regards,
Human Resources Department
United Airlines......


I'm sorry that happened. I can't believe this 24 month deal. Thanks for pointing it out. I'm sure some questions are going to get asked about this. The new hire department is still sort of a mystery to most here since it's completely different. The interviews are no longer in DEN. They're in ORD and I don't know anyone who could name one of the interview folks yet. If I hear anything official about the 24 month deal I'll post it here. That's crazy. To be pushed 24 months without an interview. I could see some sort of a short time limit after an interview but not in the app review process. Sorry.

24 months? Geez. I think everyone is kind of in the blind here as to what the process is and I know I don't have any gouge. The company hasn't really said much about the process other than they have 12 interview Captains in training right now and that as of a few days ago, we have 900 applicants on file who are "well qualified" (thier words).

Good luck

The email

Hi folks,

I got the email last Wed 7/25 for the online assessment, which I did that night. Sun I received email #2 to call and schedule a phone screening. I did that today, 7/30. No surprises, they walked through the basics of the online app to verify and clarify the responses.

Next was the daunting "We'll be in touch by email." I guess it's better than "Don't call us, we'll call you."

Anyone else further than this in the process?

Guys,

It's moving faster than I thought, but who knows, it can always come to a screeching halt.

Filled in app Fri, 21 Jul
Sent link to personality questions on Tue, 24 Jul
Filled out questions on Wed, 25 Jul
Emailed by recruiter to send a good time for her to call to go over app on Frid, 27 Jul
Just got off phone with recruiter, Mon 30 Jul

Was told that she was confirming parts of the app and would zap it into cyberspace to move onto the next step. I was told that I would get a call (maybe she said email) in the next 48-72 hours to do another round of questions. By the way, the recruiter said she had a "soft" question at the end of our review of my hours. Talk about throwing me off guard.

Tim1Wolf, did they only go over your app or were there any questions at the end?

Good luck to all.

this is the email i recd about a week ago. I think it's the "let down" letter.

Phone screening is just a confirmation of your flight times. My Soft question was :

What three words would you use to describe a good pilot, to which i responded, Safe, Competent, and patient.


and then i got the email ( which apparently was so important they reiterated it twice in the email)

I think they are hurting for people-- they havent gotten nearly the number of what they considered " qualified applicants- which fit their needs"


Oh well, good thing i didnt quit my day job.






Thank you for the opportunity to consider you for the pilot position. We are closely assessing your skills against our current needs. If we can offer you additional encouragement, we will contact you to advise you of the next steps.

Due to administrative constraints and the overwhelming interest in this position, we cannot respond to emails or phone calls regarding the status of your candidacy. We thank you for your patience and understanding while we assess your candidacy for a pilot position with United. Your application will remain on file for one year. If we can offer you encouragement during that time period, we will contact you.



Best regards,
Human Resources Department
United Airlines

Skippy, I don't think that is the letdown email. I received that exact email last week just a few hours before I received an email from the recruiter trying to set up the time to go over my application.

Same soft question at the end though. I used patience also.

patience is a virtue.

I say its the let down letter because this is the email i rec'd a day AFTER i did the phone screening and havent rec'd an email for an interview invitation as they said i would if chosen within 72 hours.

life goes on.

Skippy, If it means anything, I got that same email AFTER the psyc test, but before the "call us" email. Who knows what's up with that email??? I haven't called them yet though...I'm sure they have a few apps to go through. I wouldn't worry about it.

same letter

Hey guys,

I got the same email after the assessment, but before the "call us" email. I think it was just an auto reply, saying to not bother them.

Hey guys, after you first finished the app, did you get the email stating the following. Just wondering if everyone gets the same message? Thanks.

Please click here if you would like to update your candidate application. The most competitive candidates will be contacted by a representative of the Human Resources Department.
