You went to the wrong school! If you'd gone to ATP, you would have been on there at 600 TT.

Maybe they're weary of hiring a guy named Fulcrum.

I didn't know aquatic mammals could teach flying. Something about getti ng their flippers around the gear handle.

COEX folks can perhaps verify, but every time you update your resume, you reset the clock and drop to the end of the line.

I applied to them back in Novemeber when I was supposed to be furloughed (thankgod I never was) but I finally got a call from XJET about a month ago. I hear they are pretty back logged. There are tons of other places hiring though. Some that I might consider are: PSA, ASA, CHQ and I think Skywest also. Good luck

I'm going with the constant updating has kept you at the back of the line. I got a call 2 months ago but was already training with my first choice.

i applied in april, got the call early july, and then interviewed. apparently hiring is slowing down in August onwards, cutting the newhires in half... from 64 to 32. And the 135/121 experience is supposedly something they are looking for, although some i interviewed with, including myself, had no real 135/121 experience.

the call was a surprise, really wasnt expecting it. ya know how things work out like that. so just relax, apply elsewhere and they will call. no bad news is good news! only apply once.

Dunno?
Just apply and sit back and wait. i know it sucks to sit back and wait, I did it so i know. They are slowing to 32 a month but hiring will continue on. It seems like 200+ multi is the key. I know guys with 1500 and 150 that got the no thanks letter. It kinda luck of the draw just keep patient and good luck to all.

Apply someplace else. There are just as good of companies hiring with much quicker upgrades (ie CHQ). Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
