I did mine on the 2nd and still haven't heard anything. I sent an e-mail to CMH yesterday inquiring. We'll see if I hear anything back.

ERFly,

Anything catch you off guard, or was it just the laid back kinda chat about past employers and the rest customer service? Sounds like youve been waiting a couple weeks. No news is good right :)

Nothing caught me off guard at all. It was a very relaxed interview. She hit up all of my customer service experience and asked me some questions about customer service and how'd I'd treat the owners. Took about 25 minutes. I rather enjoyed the chat.

I've been waiting almost 7 weeks to hear something. I hope to hell that no news is good news.

Dude, did you actually pay Glamour Shots to take a picture of you in your uniform? I hope that doesn't weigh against your chances. Just kidding. Good luck.:laugh:

I haven't had it done in my uniform yet. I'm still working on the 'stache. That FedEx guy is my hero, though!

Are any of you people that got the "no thanks" pilots at a legacy carrier? I was told that they stopped hiring guys from regionals.

I'm not passing any judgment, just what a RJ guy told me on my commuting flight. I'm trying as well to figure out the magic formula.

I have heard that the interview groups are still a fair mix of all types of pilots with various backgrounds ( 121, 135, 91, mil )

I dont think the amount of flight time once over the 2500 hour mins matters much, its clear they are looking for more than a pilot.....I should have worked at Chilis or Applebees .....my sim partner at my interview was a waiter in his first year at a regional...it was a plus in him getting hired.

I've been working at a private jet charter company for three years, doing essentially what they do. The phone interview went well (from my perspective), and I have their mins all met no problem. I had four internal letters of recommendation and two people walked in my app together in Columbus.

I was told by a couple people (who have nothing to do with hiring anymore) that I was "basically just what they were looking for." Now a 'no thank you.' Something has changed.

Good luck to all. It's PFM.

I really have to say wow! Who knows....maybe they are throwing apps up in the air and if they land face up they pick them? It really sounds like you would have been a perfect candidate to bring in to CMH.

That's what a lot of people inside told me at least. I wasn't being cocky... rather, I was very, very prepared for the phone interview and had planned on the same for the personal interview.

But like you said, just as several of my friends at NJ have said... who knows what they want?
