So, I heard they are having a new hire class on Oct 10. And that they want to hire 18 a month. That is about opposite of what was said last Friday. go figure. Oh, I just found out I am being based at EWN and I need a crashpad if anybody has info it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, does Piedmont have their own message board - not company owned - but just a board for the employees to get on to that anybody has made?

PA31Ho.

What are TT - ME of the lower-time new hires that DIDN'T attend a structured college program.

I got the 4 year liberal arts B.A. and ATP written, just lacking in TT and ME.

I might have more competitive times come January. Will they still be filling in slots.

Any tips on what gets the interview/job?

How's that hiring pool moving along too?

You can go into the EWN Crewroom and post a message that you need a crashpad. I think someone runs one now, anyway good luck!
You can pm me if you need anything else.

What was said last Friday?

I would also like to know what the mins were for applicants from non-structured training. I've got an interview date and there isn't much on Aviationinterterviews.com or Willflyforfood.com

The word last Friday, at least from what I heard, was that they were not doing any new hire classes until November or December... but today I was told that a new class was starting Oct 10 ... who knows. Right now I'm on the VERY bottom of the seniority list, come on more new hires! :)

I don't know, it all matters where they need people that month. They had 3 openings for EWN and it was my #2 choice, and that's where I'm going. So, it worked out for me. But SYR seems to be a big one.

NYCPilot: I dont' know what they are looking at time wise right now. Sorry. I just know they have a lot of 500-600 hour guys out there in the pool.

They are still sending people to LGA. If you put LGA as your #1, from the look of things, it seems as if you would have a 95% chance of getting LGA.

pa31ho,

theres a 'message board' on the pdt alpa site, if you haven't done your union newhire dinner during groundschool (assuming pdt even does anything like that) you can ask then how to get into it

yeah, but the lavwall has devolved into an almost rediculous mudslinging free for all, its funny how vocal they become when they don't have to identify themselves (orig pdt guys) when most of them won't hardly say 'boo' to you when you walk by them, or you swap planes with them

but then i guess that would make sense, antisocial behavior, just the two extremes, one accountable (don't talk to anyone on the ramp), and one not(openly criticize and slander people by name anonymously on lavwall)....

yes i still look at lavwall occasionally, more to make me feel better about myself that i'm not as bad as some of the posters on there....

i give joe a lot of credit, the man is obviously a saint, considering he's put that sight up for essentially free to the users despite the downward slide of content

Who is the HR lady? Is it Mary Jo Holsinger or Shelia Parker? I'm sending my resume Monday and don't want to address it to someone that doesn't work there.
