Interviewed in April and got the call several month later that I was hired. Very little communication since then from a company that says communication is soooo important. Terrible was to treat future employees. I know that times are tough, but would there be anything wrong with telling a person where they stand in the pool? Upper 10%, 30% etc. and then sending an email when there is an indoc class so we have some idea of when we will get called? I've got things to do beside waiting by the phone for the nja ego to call me and bless me with a job.

Then do it and quite b!tchn' on message boards. For everyone else, a friend talked to the hiring people and they seem to be getting the same lack of info as you do. We are hearing rumors from furloughs to hiring 400. I wish we could give you actual information, but with all the financial problems I don't think anyone actually knows and they are in a 'wait and see' attitude.

With your attitude I see once again the talent team really dropped the ball.....

It's shows an incredible lack of taste nd class to say something like on a public board about your future employer.....espcially with this economy. I wish I knew your name.

PM your real name and I'll be sure the right people get it. I'm sure they'll respond with an apology, flowers, and a bottle of Dom.

Well, he does have a point. Maybe the wrong forum, but definately has a point.

I talked to the hiring folks at recurrent a couple of weeks ago. What they are eventually shooting for with this new online app is that you can track your progress online.

Remember folks, this is a work in progress and a work that had the apple cart disturbed this summer in a major upset. Give it time. Look at what's happening around you and just be glad you got hired here.

Go pump some gas at your local FBO if you got the jitters there Arch. We'll try and part the red sea for you next time.

Thats OK Archer

I'm starting to get used to new guys crying about the company.

(7 month F.O's and such)

Seems like I'm hearing alot of complaints from guys hired after the contract.

If you were here before the contract, I guess you may have more of an appreciation of how far we've come in improving our situation.

Just my impression. I'm allowed that aren't I?

Take care and good luck to you, you are way ahead of alot of people Archer, I hope you hear soon.

That would be a great Christmas present I'm sure.

I'd be a little frustrated too. I've been here 8 years and never have seen our recruitment department so f ed up. The problem is that they ( pilot recruitment ) has been going through some serious changes. In fact I dont even know whos in charge over there any more. Last I heard it was some VP tool at owner services who looks like Harry Potter. Anyways sorry to hear that you and everyone else is getting the runaround. They should at least have the decency to call you one a month to let you know where you stand. Last i heard this place was supposed to be customer service company. It should start from the top. but thats just my 2 cents and thats about all its worth. Good luck hope to see you on line soon

That's too bad. To each their own though. This certainly isn't for everyone. I was hired after the contract and couldn't be happier. I feel fortunate just to have a flying job, let alone the one that I feel is the best fit for me and my family. This company is in my opinion worth waiting for.

Higgy is right, as pilots we've never seen the talent recruitment team drop the ball like this before. At company recurrent the other month, it was brought to upper management's attention by many pilots that something is terribly wrong and needs to be fixed...I know for a fact that things always slow down in that department at the end of the year but it is no excuse for them to just keep you in limbo-land. I understand its upsetting not hearing anything, but try to relax and wait it out. It'll be worth it in the end. Good luck.

(Show at home Higgy?...You suck!) :)

My apologies as well

It's sad that our recruitment "talent acquisition" has become such an embarrassment. Three years ago when I was hired it was such a wonderful experience. I sincerely hope this changes soon and I will continue to express my disappointment internally.
Best of Luck... and please except my apologies on behalf of like minded NJA pilots

Back in January of this year it was a wonderful experience. I haven't heard much on the road but sorry to hear about the troubles here. Good luck to all.

Enough
Furloughs are not in the offing. Hiring will be to demand. '09I think I've seen that from other folks on this board. There are 40-50 hulls sched for delivery in '09. Some are replacements...but it's still upward of 3 in 5 are growth ships.

As far as the recruiting mess, it's VERY clear "at the top" that there is a problem. it' being addressed. Hang in there...it's worth it in the end.

My buddy here says, "It's like being an abused dog finally getting a good home." I agree!

The fact of the matter is that if they told you that you are hired you a miles ahead of the 3000 guys and gals with resumes on file, half of which have rec. letters with them. I would maybe drop them a nice email.

I understand that you are ready, willing and able to go to work, but do you think that coming on a public forum and blasting a company you hope to work for is smart??

Things are slow, was told just today by someone in CMH that we are overstaffed, at the current rate of flying. Will it pick up later this month one can only hope.

I honestly don't feel you have anything to apologize for. You have a legitimate complaint.

Although venting on a public forum probably wasn't the most tactfull way to address your complaint, you still provided the participants of this message board some usefull information..... NetJets is taking a REALLY long time to process applicants.

I've read with amazement what has been going on with the hiring process over the last several months. I've only been here since January but I've been dealing with NJ recruitment since Dec 06 and it's obvious that something has gone wrong since then. When D was running this show I never waited more then two days for a reply to any inquiry.

I interviewed right before Christmas in 07 and was told upfront that there would be a slight delay in letting me know due to the holiday. That delay totaled 10 days. I can't imagine waiting seven months for a go/no go answer.

I did wait a year for the interview like a lot of other folks but once we were in the "pipeline" the company expedited the news of whether or not we were going to be new hires.

I agree with the sentiment that those who have interviewed should be told as soon as possible as to what their future holds. And I believe that that news should travel in days, not months.

For those who are still waiting for word I can only say that this isn't a true representation of how NJ operates. This is a phenomenal company that truly cares for their employees and their owners. I consider myself very fortunate to have made it into a place such as this.

For those of you who windup on property I hope this unfortunate experience doesn't jade your approach to your job or your training. For those who don't it's unfortunate that you had to be a part of our recruitment retooling.

Best of luck to all.
