Oh thank god. I thought that was one of the signs of the apocolypse. A final insult from the gods of aviation misfortune.

More calls going out for Interviews

HR has called more people in for Interviews and last week wasn't pretty...IF, and that's a big If, you really want the job, you should do some reasearch. The whole D#$% written can be found on the Internet and we still sent a bunch of people home last week. (11 showed, 4 made it.)

Good Luck,
PSAPCSP

hey chief you said it right. I interviewed in october and saw your last post about how things haven't changed; however, I also talked to one of the eleven in the last interview and let him know what to expect, but I guess thats not enough to help someone get the job. What a shame its only a 25 questions test to remember. Well, some people are best left to flight instruct or spray for bugs. YOU GOT TO WANT IT ps see you soon. For everyone else don't be an idiot read the gouge, they want you to pass

No kidding. Last week definitely felt like "PSA Survivor" with everyone getting voted off the island. It seemed to me that most folks there had the gouge, so I don't know if they just tanked in the sim or can't take a test.

The test was more difficult than I expected - don't know if it was the format, pressure, or because I didn't recognize some of the questions from the gouge and/or ATP test prep book. Either way, I was impressed by the whole process and PSA Airlines. I must admist that it was completly different from any job interview I've been through before (first airline interview), but good nonetheless.

Yesterday wasn't much better...Do your homework people, We know the gouge is out there... This goes for any job, If you really want it, do your homework...It's embarassing to send people home after an ATP test that is posted all over the Interview gouge website! If you don't know the gouge website, ask around, doing your homework shows intiative (no matter how short notice the call is.)

More Interviews June 20th, calls going out tomorrow (Friday)
Good Luck,

Excellent. The chief pilot tells folks where to go to memorize the answers to an interview knowledge test.

Translation: "Got a pulse? We can't find qualified people to fly here but if you can recognize an RJ on the ramp 2 out of 3 times, you might be the pilot for us!"

Homework

I think what he is trying to say is do your homework. We all complain about
how we are not treated like professionals yet people can't spend 2 hrs
researching a company. You don't even have to get off your fat ass. Stay
at the computer type PSA a couple of times and bang. All the info needed.
Just show a little inititive. Maybe get some sim time before the interview.
You just can't blame someone for asking candidates to come prepared.
Now where is my crew meal?

J41 is right, I think our old HR guy from a couple of years ago was actually let go because of some of the jokers he was hiring. I dont know if this is true of not, just a rumor I heard.

From what I've read on here, the interview process has changed a lot. There was no sim ride when I went through and the 25 question ATP test was easier then putting your name on the SAT. JUST STUDY!! Have a little give a ********************.

I'm kind of curious why the numbers that are getting hired are so low. Are they mostly low timers or are there a lot of people who arent really taking it seriously?

I saw someone from training and they are using the CRJ sim because it's not too busy because no new hires right now. I wouldn't be surprised if they go back to the 73 if/when training spools up.

Classic.

Yeah. I was in the training department for differences and Mr Director of Ops said that it was pushed back until "july" and that there are 9 JJ CA starting in July as well. The problem is that some of them are former CEL guys. Oh boy oh boy. Apparently there will be regular upgrades after that in August maybe. Nothing but good news sometimes.

Wah. :crying:

If you didn't want the J4J guys, then you should've declined the jets.

You could've gone to the desert with the Dorniers.

Instead you got all excited about the prospect of replacing the entire fleet (plus growth aircraft) with shiny new replacement jets.

The pilots whose jobs were "replaced" were simply a part of the deal.
