Probably paid for the advertisement earlier and forgot to cancel it.......at least I hope that's the case because if they just canned a bunch and start hiring right away, that would be some major BS.

Just great. Another fellow NJA pilot(?) making us all look like schlepps. This is a thread about XO Jet. Back off and let these guys make up their own mind. Times are tough enough in this "industry". They are no less intelligent than you are. And if you didn't make it at NJA and were offered a job there, I bet you'd be singing a different tune.

WOW, comments like that take me back to high school.... "my bike is better than yours"

No need to bring NJA into this, the thread is about XoJet...when people make ignorant comments they're own their own, let's leave his employer out of this.

AMEN!!!

I don't know why it says were hiring? I'll look in to it and see what I can find out.

Lets not turn this into another union/mgmt bashing thread please. Lets try to stick with factual information.

Haha, I guess my finger slipped of the shift key!

I talked to our recruiter about the hiring and he said it was an error...

Thanks for the info Cherry.

Any ideas on if and when there will be recalls?

I have some friends on the street and they were interested in XO.

I hadn't heard any dates yet. I do know the next class we have is going to be new Challenger 300 guys that have time in type, then new hires for the Challenger that are already in the pool, then recall pilots that have to go through the whole interview process again, then new hires off the street... Might be awhile for your friend, but then again you never know.

Any chance the company changes there mind on the "interview again" stance? I think it would be a step in the right direction.

There lies the problem.. A "step in the right direction" That's not in DO's or CP's work ethics.....

I am sorry I was not trying to be an ass. I don't know much about XO.


I was just asking a question.

So you guys don't have a contract of some kind, individual or otherwise?

Do you guys have any kind of union, inhouse or otherwise?

Why would I twist the knife on someone else's misfortune? Especially, when it is out of their control?

You guys jump my sh!t every time I ask a question...sorry I asked.

Sad to hear about the furloughs.

Good Luck.

That's what you posted earlier. Don't try to play it off as a question. While it had a question mark at the end, you were clearly trying to make a statement. You just further discredited yourself by trying to make it something it wasn't.

I'm a fellow NJ pilot, and I get just as irritated as anyone else by all the pro union BS thrown out there. It has served us well, but I have also worked for well run non-union shops where the workforce was treated well.

Stop making us all look like asses with your BS.
