I think he meant that his chief pilot was called by an SWA background checker, maybe?

I just meant that I had 2 references checked and ExpressJets IAH and EWR Chief Pilots called.

However, My Chief told me a while back that it's usually a SW Chief Pilot who calls him when they are checking out a prospective newhire.

So what is the consensus? 8th or 16th? I would tend to guess the 16th since they interviewed late into July...

I would guess the 16th too. FlyBarney's one person closer to the source than the guy I interviewed with and you know how airline rumors work.

Rec's getting called: I don't think it matters, 1,2 or 10 getting called. I haven't seen anyone have ALL their references get called in my limited experience of surfing these boards. Seems like its usually one or two. Hell, I've seen some guys have none of their ref's called and still get the job and I've seen guys have their ref's called and not get the job. It's impossible to predict what will happen until you get a call or get a letter.
I truly hope the best for all of us! They still need quite a few of us from what I understand. Take care!

Refs...

1stCiv et al

For those that have had refs called, I'm happy for you. None of mine have contacted me with similar good news. I know it's not over till you get the letter, but having refs called must be better than not. Sometimes the guys tasked with the job get to it at different times than others, and sometimes they are able to network and use folks that you didn't list as refs but would know you from the jobs you've had; maybe they'd provide more objective info.

I interviewed 12 Jul. Thought the interviews went well, less confident about the LOI.

Trying to remain positive...

Cheers

My avatar is a photo of the RND composite formation that we got to fly once in a great while, it was pretty cool. They are RND aircraft.

I have heard nothing from any of our group except you. Today is my 3d day as a reservist and my life is in a high state of disorder. I'll send you a PM.

Cheers
