Are those that are being offered classes for Jan-Mar 2018 part of the 301 that have already been hired from 2017? Or is this in addition to those 301 from 2017?

The 301 + were hired by Nov . These are the new 2018 hires.
Good luck

Do you know if they're actively interviewing right now? Or just drawing from the pool?

I know there is one pilot interviewing in Dec. that I know of. I donít know what the active interviews look like going forward.

Iím hopeful that 2018 will bring an invite out of the pool.

Chance of system bid today, 12-15?

Dad Gum

20% chance today.
20% chance Monday.
50% chance Tuesday.
10% chance after that, with corresponding changes to the new hire class originally scheduled to start on 1/3.

Just a complete guess...YMMV

It's just like Apollo 13 when Tom Hanks needs the plan to get them back to earth and they keep telling him they're working in it... that's what's happening in the bid department

Bid posted, 18 747 captains must be a typo right. Impossible unless another bid is coming out shortly

"About 4pm" was just about right...:D

170 total positions on "the first bid affecting 2018 crewmember staffing"...

What were the other spots open for FO's?

I'm curious how this will shape up hiring for 2018...

So much for the big bid everyone was anticipating. I guess the next big bid will be a displacement/realignment.

Just another day at UPS.

"We need over 710 new pilots for 2018". Said a particular scab management pilot at an instructor meeting around July 2017.

Maybe he was dyslexic and meant to say 170.

LMAO.

Yes but the captain upgrades also create FO vacancies right? Am I missing something?

That is exactly how it works...the end result of this bid award will be 170 vacancies to be filled by 2018 newhires.

They are definitely hiring right now. Just ran into a guy on his way, with suit in hand, to an interview a few days before Christmas 2017. So Don't give up guys and don't forget to update your UPS application in January 2018. And as a side note, Job Fairs do work. So don't count that out. Good luck!
