Can someone help me out on where I could find the former postings?

Specifically, I'm trying to find the award where I was awarded my current seat and I think it was on 09-02, 09-03 or 09-04 (there've been so many and some canxed, I can't remember anymore). I can't find these postings on the website anywhere.

Additionally, I need the Crew Notification that said, "You have been scheduled to begin training on X day." I'm not able to see my crew notifications any further back than 90 days.

Does anyone have a point for me? Somewhere or someone I can talk to about getting this information? Thanks in advance.

As far as reviewing previous postings, from main page on vips go to general info then postings. As far as a notification greater than 90 days I can't help you. As far as your class date, you can go to standing bids, then training letter for your awarded aircraft and find out when your training will start.

I would have just posted a link directly to the postings, but I figured you might want to know how to get back to it again without having to come to APC. I'm sure busboy will do it though.:cool:

Thanks guys for the links and info.

I know about looking at the training letter dates. What I really need is some "evidence" of the actual crew notification that says, "You are scheduled to begin transition training on X date." I know I got it, I just can't see back far enough in my past on VIPS to see it. Any idea who to call to get it?

A note from the 2001 posting...oh for the good ol' days! Haha.


Post Office Operations - Update #1

The posting---which, as you well know, is already on the street--- provides primary vacancies for 331 new captain positions and 320 new first officer positions, as well as 50 Boeing S/O slots. Additionally, we are planning to fill all secondary vacancies created as a result of the posting.

We will also accelerate the hiring of 701 new crewmembers to the seniority list over the next 1-1/2 years, with 500 of these coming in the next 12 months to meet the needs of the USPS agreement. While the vast majority of the upgrades available through this posting are a direct result of the new USPS agreement, they also account for the previously scheduled introduction of new aircraft into service driven by our existing base business.
