anyone know the secret for getting an interview? LOR? Personal meeting w/the chief pilot? Airinc seminar? I've had my resume in the database for about 4 months now. Should have the magic 1000pic by new years eve.

Not exactly sure what the secret knock is these days, but if I could offer some advice, here's what I would give:

- Keep updating your online app. Even if your flight time changed by just a few minutes, keep updating at least once a month.

- LOR's from line pilots are hit and miss. Overall, they can't hurt, but at the same time there is no guarantee one will work either.

- I never attended any AirInc seminars, but again, it couldn't hurt. At the very least it will give you a chance to meet with some HR reps. My advice here, is ask them what you could do to make yourself marketable as a potential UPS cadidate.

Best of luck to you, and hope to see you on the property someday.

Just a note about Air Inc. I dont work there nor do I get any money for saying good things about them. I went to 7 different Air Inc Conf. At the time, It helped me get valuable face time. I had 5 different interviews while I was at the rejional, AA, DAL, NWA, TWA, UPS. I was turned down at 2 and hired or in the pool at 3 others when UPS game me the call. I met and talked with Phil Donahoe (Head of HR at the time, works in a different dept now) at all 7 Air Inc conf's and he was very nice and gave me his time when I was there. Everytime I spoke with him and mentioned that I had 3 LOR's from 3 Sr UPS Line pilots, He told me to keep building my time. The only time he ever gave me his number and asked me to do a follow up with him was when I had mentioned to him that I had a LOR from an Assistant Chief Pilot (Management Guy).

Thats my story, other have had different things happen to them...

I interviewed recently and told that I would be put into the pool. Is this a good or bad thing?

Heard that a female that was in the pool from 2001 was asked to re-interview, she had added a college degree and jet type rating since her original interview. This time around she was rejected. Seems that being in the original pool is no guarantee of a job at UPS.

That's a good thing. You've made it through the interview, so they like you. Now, just wait for a class date. Congratulations, hope to see you on the seniority list real soon!!

Hey Otis,


Congrats on becoming a poolie. I just got my call for an interview last week. How long after your interview did they notify you?

I heard a captain at my airline was just put into the pool. Don't know all the details. However for all you turboprop guys, we are a strict BE-1900 operator.

I too was in the pool for 3 years, re-interviewed with almost 1500 more heavy jet hours, and was sent packing! I have lost my trust in UPS and am gladly looking elsewhere now.

Hey Clyde, I sent you a message on another thread, but would you consider taking my resume in with a recommendation? I really want to get on with UPS. Thanks

Was it a different interview team doing your interview?

I'm not sure that your 1500 more heavy jet hours did anything for them. I heard that they just hired a guy with Beech 1900 time as his biggest plane flown.

The team was the same except there was an HR person (in training, I think) added to the face-to-face, and a DC-8 Captain there instead of the guy from the sim.
