I sent my stuff into PSA about a week and a half ago. Just curious how long it takes to get a phone call. Im sitting at 1700/300 and I meet all the other requirements.

I mailed the application back about a week ago as well - I'm at 1900/300. I think they're hiring people with a lot lower time as well, I don't think having more time means you'll get a call sooner.

You guys will get a call dont worry. We are short of FO's right now. Company is flying the heck out of reserves. Good luck! Hope to see you all online in a couple of months. If you have any questions I'm sure PSACHIEFS can answer some and feel free to PM me as well. Hope you get on, we need you!

Here I am!

As I have said many times before, There is only one person in the HR department for Pilot recruitment. She gets 100's of resumes per week and just as many Applications. Individuals with Previous 135 and 121 experience get first calls, Then individuals with CRJ training, then everyone else! CP's stop by to help with sorting through the apps but I am never in DAY so I rarely participate!


When we lowered the minimums to 1000/100, we started to get bombarded with applicants. PLEASE BE PATIENT!

Same thing when we went to automated response to OpsRecruiter2@psaairlines.com
We get alot more apps but it also means sorting through alot of applicants who are not yet qualified.

Good Luck,
PSACPSP

Thanks for the inffo PSAChief.
Any reason the process isn't online, like everyone else?
Since I live in Charlotte, is there anyone I could go see?

The reason it's not online is discussed in previous PSA post! Most commuter airline applications are not secure...I do not want to be responsible for everyone's ss#, etc. We just went to the auto reponse and that was like pulling teeth with IT. We are in bankruptcy as well, we do the best with what we have. We could always go to one of those "charge 50 bucks systems" but I prefer not to do that as well.

I'm the only "Adult" supervision in CLT at this time (yeah, for those that know me, that's scary) Unless you can get through security at the airport, it's highly unlikely you could catch me.

PM me and I'll try to investigate further!

Good Luck,
PSACPSP

LMAO...guess when PSA wants to interview me? If you guess the same day as CHQ, you'd be correct.

That horse is dead!

currently 4 years for upgrade,

And no, we are not losing any flying to AWAC...US Airways gave them PHL and gave us Mesa's flying in CLT. I feel we got the better end of that deal, of course, that's my personal opinion and you know what they say about those....

Hello,
CLT is a great airport, great city. I think that anyone that winds up there no matter who they work with will be happy there. You have major sports teams, NASCAR, Lake Norman and the cost of living is reasonable.
Flying in and out of CLT is painless for the most part. Airways has "push" times throughout the day, but generally speaking the airspace is relatively uncongested. I flew freight in and out of there and the controllers are good...Can't beat Southern Hospitality and GREAT BBQ, if you like the Carolina style.

Regards,

Boy, I have 500hrs with 5 hours multi and sent my resume yesterday, but have'nt heard a word yet, what the heck is going on? How long till upgrade, because I'm ready. Do you think the FAA will let me upgrade sooner with my type of experience since I'm so experienced?

As of this writing still no word from PSA, I'm sick of this BS I think I'll go work for someone better who will show me the respect I deserve with this type of time !

I think he was being sarcastic.... but the fact that you believed him -- even for a moment -- is a sad commentary on the state of the industry

(i/e the unbelievable cockiness of regional airline applicants despite their lack of experience)

edited: Mamba, I see you changed your response. I take it the light-bulb went on?
