Hey folks,

There was some activity on the boards a couple months back about Wal-Mart perhpas looking for pilots. Haven't heard a peep since.
Just wondering what is happening over there these days and when they might be hiring again. Thanks for any info you got.

If you're a chick or minority under thirty with a Lear type & 500 hours in same, put in a resume and wait for the call.

If you're not, put in a resume and deduct it from your taxes.

Have a nice day.

Oh, you're a real class act! Do you wonder why they turned you down or why you can't get a decent job anywhere? It's that attitude of yours. I once overheard someone say "Aviation is like a self cleaning over", and after reading your post, it seems like that is oh so true..........

I guess this just goes to show you can't be nice to some people.

All I did was tell the truth, WalMart's department is looking for a certain demographic: the chicks and the minorities, with Lear type & time. If you have that you'll get an interview, if you don't you won't.

Exceptions may be made...as with any corporate job...depending on if you're connected, and how well you're connected.

After all, my friend...exactly how did you get that Hawker F/O job? Was it because you personally were the most qualified individual in the market? Don't make me laugh, now.

Have a nice day.

LMAO:D

That one was good and true from what I have heard.

I think the female part is the "in", just never figured a sex change would be appropriate considering how much the company is worth, it's profits, etc, when you look at the compensation package offered to the pilots.

Chink? I don't recall walmart advertising they were looking for chinks. As for my Hawker job, that was all about being in the right place at the right time and knowing the right people, the same way most of us here got our jobs. It's not about being the most qualified. If that were the case, none of us here would have a job. There is always someone with more time, experience, and knowledge. I am not a woman or a "Chink". Get a life.........

Get over it.

EVERY large flight department wants women and minorities.

Wake up, thats reality. If you let it bother you, you will just come across as bitter.

Good for them I say, take advantage of the opportunity.

Seems to me like this makes sense. I applied for them a while back. Exceeded their minimums, was current in the Lear with 500 hours in type, had been to sim within a year, AND was local and they didn't even want to talk to me. I was thinking, "what the hell?" I called back on a follow up and found out that I didn't even make the cut for phone interviews. A buddy told me they hired 2 chicks with LESS quals than me.

I'll never apply there again.

Hawker F/O, you need to get your eyes checked.

My post...intended to be helpful, by the way...referred to "chicks," that's C-H-I-C-K-S, which is english slang for females (usually, but not always, intended to denote those of a certain age, appearance, and general sexual appeal). "Chinks," on the other hand, is a derogatory english slang term...one that would never pass MY lips, by the way...for Chinese persons.

Since Chinese persons are also considered a minority in the U.S., I would suppose they would have a decided advantage in the WalMart flight department hiring process as well...provided, that is, that they had the requisite Lear type rating and a suitable amount of Lear flight time logged. Once again, exceptions might be made, depending on the individual's connections within the WalMart organization.

However, I would prefer to restrict our discussion to that class of persons aforementioned, that is, the "chicks." Thank you in advance for your indulgence in this matter.

Thanks, also, for admitting that your connections got you your current job. That bit of honesty is perhaps the start of a new and refreshing worldview for you, one that will be helpful. But, as I suspect you are a chick yourself, perhaps not.

In conclusion: my, my, but what a shrill and specious little number you are.

Have a nice day.

I noticed the same thing. It's one thing to go off on a rant, we all do it from time to time, but it's a good idea to zero in on the correct point... And not blast someone's spelling/suggest they're a racist when the error in question doesn't exist! ;)

So what were the demographics of the last 2 or 3 classes of newhires at Wal-Mart? What kind of qualifications did they have?

I worked there up till Jan. of this year and I have the pilot list in my hand. As far as I can count, all but 1 of the multitude of recent new hires has been white males... The 1 that they have hired is a highly qualified and outstanding individual/pilot.

Any other know-it-alls care to chime in ???

What can I say? Guilty. I was in a hurry and did indeed misread what you wrote. I am sorry about that. Had I read that correctly, I probably would not have written. Once again, my apoligies for misreading that. By the way, I am not a Hawker f/o any longer. Moved on to bigger, faster, less range and better.........

After reading h25b's post, it sounds as though someone didn't want to hurt your feelings about not being hired.

It's been a while since any females have been hired, so you're either full of it or someone did not want to hurt your feelings...

BRAVO!! It's nice to see someone on flightinfo admit when they are wrong.

FWIW, I for one have never been wrong.:rolleyes:
