For those recently hired at Cal how long did it take for them to give you the good news? Did they call first thing in the morning or late in the day?

Right now it's running about a month. Sometimes sooner, but a month is a good bet.

What's it take?

What are the realistic minimums these days for landing a job at Continental?
Any fractional guys with corporate backgrounds getting hired?

eglpilot,
I interviewed on a Tuesday and was called for a job two days later at about 1400 mountain time.

Had a guy on the jumpseat the other day that only had Part 91 and a little 135. But he had like 3 types on planes such as a G2. So I guess it does happen. However, from what I here they still like military and 121 experience.

It boils down to who you know!

There has been a huge variety in the new-hire classes, even a lot of 'kids' in their early-20's with no PIC, no ATP's, and very little turbine time (whose dad's work at CAL).

Other than that, there is a mix of 91, 121, 135, regional, and military.

Interviewed 830am (sim was b4 that), and they had my friend (who had recommended me) give me the call the next morning 8am. I thought that was pretty classy. The class I got was 20 days after the call.

So whats your REALLY saying is this means nothing?? :) I to have heard of MANY people getting hired with no PIC time, zip notta. Gota love the system

Thank you for your interest in joining the Continental team. Continental anticipates the need to hire a significant number of pilots during the second half of 2005.

The following are the minimum qualifications to apply for a pilot position:

1,500 hours fixed-wing total flight time
1,000 hours fixed-wing PIC time, or 500 hours PIC time and 500 hours SIC time in a turbojet
1,000 hours fixed-wing turbine time
1,000 hours fixed-wing multi-engine time (civilian or military) or 1,000 hours single-engine military fighter jet time
A current ATP written exam
A current first class FAA medical
A current passport
A Bachelor's degree is highly desired
