Yeah , I've got an interview in Houston also. Had my app in for over a year, got a postcard 9 months ago saying " you got an interview, dont call us, we'll call you" ....... Two weeks ago, got a letter asking for an update or they would drop me (and everyone else who didnt respond to the latest mailing, it was a form letter)
So, I sent one in with a nastygram about their system..... I guess it must of worked . Dorienda was very nice about the whole thing and very apologetic about the company being behind.
All I can say is if the current crop of pilots keeps writting intro letters for their buddies, or possible new hires, I dont think the company will ever run out of those letters, and will have no use for the "regular list" . As I've read on this board that list is over 2000 long now, thats a bunch !.......
I applied in late Sept. 2001. I received a form to update my resume in mid June 02. I had a friend send a LOR in about the same time as the update. I received the call July 1st for the interview in Houston on the 29th and 30th.
I submitted my app in Nov 01. Got a letter and update form in May 02 and submitted it in Jun 02. Received a call from Derinda on 1 Jul 02 for the interview at the end of the month. Besides the gouge on the net does anyone have any other information to share reference the Houston interview [type sim, etc.]. I would really like to hear from the guys that interview next week. Thanks in advance.
