Hi,

Is there anyone on here that has had an interview recently? After the video interview, they request more info. Is there a time frame on when you can expect to hear back?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

Are you saying you got the request for more info or are waiting to get that email? From my experience you really have to flub the video interview to not get the email. I won't say it is impossible as I have heard of one or two folks that got the "thanks, but no thanks" after the video interview, but most get the other. I would say anywhere from a couple of hours to a few days depending on when you get the video interview done. It has to be reviewed and they send those out in batches to the folks that review them. After you get the request for more info email it could take a few days as they have to have interview availability dates before the next email as that one sets up your face to face. Hope that answers your question.

I got the video invite on 28 Feb, completed it on 4 March, Additional Data request on 5 March, and nothing else since then. Hoping to hear back soon! I think the request for additional data is a good sign though....from what I have read on forums / aviationinterviews.com / RST it seems like they don't send that request for info unless they intend to send an invite. Could be overly optimistic....but hey gotta hold onto something haha!

I believe the additional info is so they can book your tickets and start background check process.

No invite for F2F yet either. Read a few posts on RST American FB page a couple days ago where the applicants waited a little over 2 weeks so I think weíre still in the realm of normal. Hope the best for you as well!

Same timeline for me as well. It’s been about 15 days since I received and completed request for more info which was about a week after submitting video interview. Hoping F2F request shows up soon, not panicking yet!

Mil for me and I looked at my dates again. I submitted the request for info on March 10th so itís been 9 days, not 15 in my case. It just seems like 15!

Still waiting. Congrats to the guys who heard back already. Good luck with the F2F!

Anyone else have the request for info email that hasnít heard back yet like me?

Submitted the additional information request on 6 March, still nothing. When is yíall availability date that received the F2F invite? Trying not to freak out, but itís getting challenging.

My availability date is immediate, submitted the request for info on March 9th and still waiting as well. I have two buddies who waited 20-21 days after they submitted extra info before getting F2F invite so I think weíre still inside normal timelines. I feel your pain though!

My availability was immediate as well....they likely wouldnít waste time on a background check if they didnít intend on inviting you. Stay positive, itíll happen.

Did your virtual interviews come after talking to recruiters at an expo, or purely from your pilotcredentials app data?

Available beginning of April, random algorithm defeat on pilot credentials, no job fair. A friend of mine ots did the last virtual fair tho and got an invite.

Military only background for me (22 years and just shy of 4000 hours in the fighter community). I did not attend any job fairs or recruitment events. Pilot Credentials with 3 internal LORs got me to a virtual interview, which resulted in the request for more info about 10 days ago. No F2F invite yet. Patiently waiting and hoping for the next email.

Good luck to all on this journey!

Pilot credentials with 3 internal LORs was my path to the virtual interview. Submitted extra info on March 10th. Patiently waiting and hoping for F2F offer.

Mil background for me, 22 years, about 4000 hours in the fighter community.

In the last couple years theyíve hired some non mil/ non wo folks. The ones I know have been Regional LCA/ FO at another major and heavily involved in the extracurricular activities.

Iím retired military and didnít do the virtual job fair. Whatís a realistic timeline from video F2F to interview to class? Based on what Iím seeing itís like 6-8 weeks start to finish. Sound right?

Something I noticed was three internals.

Had two for a long time, then as soon as I got three I got a video interview. 1 week for additional data. 1 week till the invite. 3 weeks till the f2f. 1 day to the cjo. All at Christmas time.

Good buddy of mine who is very qualified, certainly more so than me, had been available on a very similar timeline with nothing to show for it. As soon as I started indoc I wrote him a rec to make his third and he got a video interview less than a week later. Who knows what the PC logic is to start the process, but for him and I it was three recs to start the train rolling. 10 days after his video he got request for more information and that is where he is at now.

Not sure this is helpful, just offering some data.

Mine came in at 3 pm on a Thursday. Thatís just 1 data point, not sure if it helps. Good luck! Still waiting and hoping for F2F, submitted request for more info 16 days ago.

Anyone else still in that window of waiting more than two weeks?

No idea on pass rate, but I do know 2 guys who received the video and then got a TBNT email a little while after. You should get a fairly quick response if itís a pass, although some have reported it taking a couple weeks to hear back, even when itís a positive.
