Long time lurker and haven't posted much of anything. Guess I had nothing smart to write...probably still don't. Got the good news that I did indeed learn the secret handshake and was able to recite the Manchester United song from memory. Looks like a mid to late October class date for me. I look forward to joining the team, happy to be here, and hope I can help out the ball club! :D

Just to add...thanks to many here for your posts and insights.

Congratulations stayfrosty. I also got the official job offer Tuesday from a Chief Pilot. I got the email about pre-class study material. Nothing about class dates or info about the drug test yet. I was told the people department would call in the near future with that info. Did you get any info on class dates yet.

Congratulations stayfrosty. I too got the job offer from a Chief Pilot on Tuesday. He said info about class dates and the drug test will come from the people department in the near future. Did you get any info on class dates or the drug test yet?

I got the call Monday evening, pilot credentials was updated with training info that day, I reached out to the ACP who called me about drug testing on Wednesday because I hadn't heard anything, Friday they emailed me with class date options, and then drug tested. It seems like there isn't an order as to how things are done, so don't sweat it. If they called you, you're hired, it's just hard to wait. Either way it's exciting!

Hi guys,
Yes I got called from the people department a few days after the congratulatory call to schedule a class date and set up drug testing. Few days after that received an email saying background screening is complete. Can't wait to begin!

Thanks guys. Sorry for the double post, I didn't think the first one went thru. Hopefully I'll see you all in Dallas.

That's cool that they let you know when the background screening is complete. That seems fast! I was under the impression it could take a few weeks even after training had started.

Congrats!
