Is there an airplane weight requirement on that?

Don't forget about the 5 or 6 recomendations from UPS pilots.

Hey guys,

Just to let you know, there is no weight req. on the 1000 PIC turbine. Mine was in a good ole 1900D. Also, you really only need 1 rec. from either a pilot or a manager-type person. Unfortunately, a box thrower probably won't work.

The biggest hurdle right now is overcoming all of the apps that are in the system. And that is where the rec letter comes in play. In my case, I believe it was THE reason I got the interview. Good luck to all trying to get on.

P.S. The night sked is not bad at all, depending which a/c you get.

I would be curious what fleets these pilots would go to, and how they plan on hiring & training 60+ pilots in the next eight weeks over Peak.

Don't they have a few thousand resumes on their desk already? I would think it would take a few months to even get an interview lined up. Does anyone know what the call back time frame is?

Rumor was that they were going to dump the resume pile and let it start all over again! I believe they are going to be in ATL for the fair also.

Is the FE hard and fast will they even consider you without it or can you get it before starting (luck permitting?)

Please note where it says "MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS". Best of luck with 1500/1000 in a light twin.

I threw boxes for two years in college at UPS at a sort facility. Does anyone know if previous employment benefits in getting a call?

I would be ecstatic if they hired 60 before the year end. I would probably get out of this pool (been swimming since around May). Yippie! Maybe the hiring will increase because of getting the Menlo flying inhouse.

RVR, how is UPS treating you? What is llfe like for a new hire? How does reserve work? Would reserve be commutable?

I hear that they're like FedEx. They won't even talk to you unless you have 3 internal recs.
