There seems to be a wide variance with this. If you check the old boards, you'll see guys who were interviewed and hired 2 weeks after (and with no contact there) and other guys with more hours and experience who have waited a few months with nothing. It goes to reason that they were so swamped with resumes and apps that they just couldn't keep it all in order and equitable. Be patient...I still am! Applied September 10! Good Luck!
I just got a letter yesterday acknowledging that the interviewing manager has my ap and I am eligible for an interview when one become available (wow). Sent the ap in around Sep 20th. Accepted another job since I doubt I'd set into a cockpit before Mar or Apr with EJA from what I've been hearing.
Same letter as you guys, today. Application sent in September. They called me 3 weeks ago to verify my birthdate (I guess I forgot to fill it in on hte application). I'll assume not until after the New Year to hear anything.
I got the same letter. I wonder if everyone who met the mins got the same letter. Does this mean we are on the short list or one of 10,000-20,000 others who met the minimum qualifications? Anybody have an idea?
I got that same interview pool letter. I sent in the app on Sept 24th and got the letter Dec 4th. I think they must have sent that letter to everyone who met their qualifications. It would be great if someone could give us an idea of when the interview would come.
Hey Guys - Just FYI...I was called around the 12th of November for an interview on the 24th of January - yes January. I am very thankful to be on the short list. Good news is that they want to hire 750 pilots next year. The question is...Can the school houses handle all of this hiring? Time will tell. I am greatful to have an interview with one of the best fracs in the business...and getting better! Some stats for you.
