Shhhhhwooooo........thanks for the info. For a while there I thought I was going to have to go out and buy another bottle of Jack. On second thought....I think I'll do it anyway. I'm rolling in at about 9 weeks without word, so I'm thinkin maybe two bottles would be more appropriate..... just in case. Also, since I don't really have a plan "Z" yet, is there any time restriction on how soon you can be walked back in? Can you be sponsored by the same person, or do you have to hire a new one?

If I could have done that I would have never left my room as a kid. I quess I'll just have to fall back on my original career plan of total world domination. Yaaaazzz......that's right........world domination...... I'm going to create a world where tanks are easier to rent, close door buttons on elevators respond so fast they could cause injury, and death row gladiator championships are held every friday night.........yup.....I can see it all now.

So, reading your post, did your interview last month not go too well? Or did you start in July? 29 newbies started in July, and only one had tits. I went back over the last year+ since we picked up hiring again. We hired 445 pilots- 18 had tits. That's 4%. In my class back in 2002 there were none.

And Tram: If there are seat openings other than the s/o 727, they are bid by seniority, not tit size.

And for everyone else, we do have a few guys with Man-boobs that got hired, so don't think that rules you all out.

Ok, I was just told a new hire got FO on the 727, which I thought was a rarity for a newhire..

Where are you based out of? MEM?

You had mentioned in June you had a Fedex intervew. How did it go? I thought maybe they passed you over, and you were just relieving some tension. Or was having an interview throwing spears, too? Just wondering, since people here will help out with questions, logistics, and interview prep.

Go screw yourself tool!

You idiots that say this $hit make me want to vomit. Awwww, poor baby boy, has to make an excuse for his own inadequacy on why the job he or his guy friend didn't get a call. You make me sick. You don't even know WTF you are talking about.

Hey if ya ain't MIL what is the going rate to get sponsered? I need to know so I can start save my pennies. But Seriously FedEx dudes do they like people with a predominate freight background or the regional jet type?

Just from my own experience, it doesn't matter what your background is......freight or feeder. Anyway, I didn't get the impression from the chief pilot that military experience was of any value when it came to sponsors. Both my sponsor and I are civilian. I think the most important aspect of a sponsor is that he/she will risk their reputation on your performance. Don't just have a friend of a friend try to walk you in, make sure it's someone that knows you really well.

me thinks she does protest to much.
Question: Does anyone know what PERCENTAGE of female applicants get hired versus the PERCENTAGE of male applicants? The answer to that question would point out any bias that exist towards chick pilots.

Me thinks if guys would use their energy on networking and studying their ass off like I did to get a job instead of bitching about the 2 or 3 females that get hired here and there, you wouldn't have to worry about it because you would have a job and wouldn't need to whine about it.

Studying and networking??? Im sure that is the ONLY reason you got your job flying boxes. It couldn't possibly had anything thing to do with your OTHER assets. NO even a little bit??? Yea, I know, you worked hard, deserved all the breaks you've got...blah..blah...blah...

Congrats on the new job,

Johnny
