I guess I shouldn't even waste my time filling out an application when I get my 1000 PIC, eh?
So, who will FedEx consider? Do I have to quit the major I'm working for and go back to a regional making $17k/yr?
Seems a bit silly to not consider any current pilots from a major. Please explain, or try to explain, the reasoning behind this policy.

He also said they like to see lots of updates on your resume and get as many FedEx guys to refer you as you can it makes a difference. You will hear of folks with less hours getting hired but they usually have some weight behind them (Smith, Lewis, or a 2 digit employee number) It does matter who you know.
What I found interesting he said he didn't like the furloughed guys. He didn't like giving someone a second chance (that didnt' choose FedEx in good times) when other guys haven't had a first chance. He also said he could walk in a new hire class and pick out the furloughed guys every time.
To back that up another buddy LCA on the 72 panel said they had been having attitude problems with furloughed guys going through IOE and that some of the LCAs were recommending they not hire the guys. So, if you are furloughed and get hired be happy, there are a lot (most actually) that chose FedEx for growth and job security when we could have gone to any airline. So acting like you've taken a step down doesn't go over very well. I'm sure most guys guys love it at Fred's place but it only takes a few to mess it up for the good guys out there.
At this stage of the game, what can a guy do now anyway?lmevans1 said:I can't say much about Delta but our Comair guys are starting to get worried about the next paycut. So far every crew I've met is going to stay. We're a regional..lol
