Does anyone know how long it takes to get the thumbs up or down after the interview at CAL?

Good Luck

Same thing for me. You in class on the 18th?

Stuka, it's pretty quick. If you don't hear anything in a day or two, you'll be getting a letter (bad) in the mail. I haven't heard of anyone taking longer than 2 days to get a phone call with the good news. It's usually done in one.

Are you Doug M's friend? I was Doug's sponser, welcome to CAL! I heard they are going to be conducting INDOC in EWR, is your class date in EWR or IAH?
Hey thanks! Yep, Doug helped me out. I've heard that there is a possibility of the first two weeks in EWR from the other NAA CAL new hire, but my e-mail says that I'm going to IAH. EWR would have been great since I live close by.

AAGGHH!!! No more deadheading! I've got more time in the back than the front at NAA.
I've heard that the evacuees have taken all of the available rooms in Houston, but my e-mail says that I'm going to the Marriott there. KD said that I'm one of the "old guys" of the bunch, so I suspect I'll pick the 73. I looked over my shoulder when he said that. When did I become the "old guy?":erm:

That's true. My class, 4 Oct, and the next 2 will do basic indoc at Newark. It's only two weeks and who cares you still have your senority number.

Nothing wrong with doing INDOC in Newark. I wish I could do all my training in EWR VS MECCA! Be sure to vist the crew room and introduce yourself and get any questions answered. Newark has great pilots and is a great base. If you and your classmates go out check the Ironbound in Newark for great Portuguese food.

Hey y'all I'm startin on the 18th. Got the official word today that indoc will be in EWR cuz of the hotel situation in IAH (My original iternerary was for Marriot in IAH as well). I figure, being 30 flat, that I'll fall towards the bottom of the class for seniority.

BUT I DON'T CARE!! (because I probably won't have much choice what I get in class) SO WOOOHOOOO!!!!:D:beer:

FWIW, I was told my class of 16 has 8 737 and 8 756 positions.

See y'all on line.

Take it with a grain of salt. When I got hired spring of 87 the average captain was mid 30's. Now the average captain is in the mid 50's. Lots of retirements so relax enjoy the ride and hopefully your roll of the dice will pay off. Good Luck and Welcome to all future new hires.

Class in EWR, eh? So much for driving to work (I live 45 mins. away from IAH). But like Pkober said, it's only two weeks! Either way, it looks like things are going to move quickly enough to get the base you want in fairly short order.

Happy to be here,

Stuka
