Let's start a thread for people interviewing as well as the newly hired. Info on class dates, sizes, bases, benefits, etc. (since the other thread disappeared)

Well the latest and greatest threads of other airlines stay here. Who goes to hiring news? Not to mention that's a hidden forum that can't be accessed unless you sign in. It's private.

A small class is 4 pilots. Regular classes are 8-10 pilots. Bases are LAX and SFO, with JFK being a very small pseudo base that is super-senior. Interviews and hiring continues, so apply if interested!

Has anyone in the pool been notified of these start dates? Last we heard was that they "might" run a class in March. And nothing since.

When did you interview? What were the times and backgrounds of the people interviewing?

There were two rounds of interviews last August. Around 12 to 15 each round if I remember correctly. Lots of regional captains. A couple I spoke to had no internal recs. Most had internal recs. There were 2 or 3 from Supplemental backgrounds. That's all I remember. But most had regional backgrounds.

A very warm and relaxing interview environment. VA people were very nice to all of us.
