Spring 2019!? After two years at Air Group not one former VXer is a Virgin anymore! Everyone has been worked over.

I did get the job! 13 out of 16 hired. Unknown class date...sometime after the first of the year, early I hope. I canít wait to get started. Iím getting hooked up on the quizlet set, anything else I should do as far as study prep?

The talent quest was one of those personality/IQ test deals. Around 200 personality test questions and 40 or so IQ questions: number patterns, vocabulary etc. You donít take it until after the interview invite, so apparently they donít use it for screening.

A solid grasp of Special Relativity and its application to flight in the high altitude transonic regime is recommended.

They don't use it for screening, but they do use it to determine what to ask during the interview.

Would this mean its a bad time to ask when the next hiring window opens?

Just to stir up the rumor mill, on the Allegiant forums they said that some Alaska Execs were in Summerlin last week discussing transferring some Airbus leases.

Wish I heard from a flight attendants cousin who is also a gate agent, but thatís my news source.
