bump. Just curious also... couldn't find any info on their website. APC says they're hiring but their website doesn't show a job opening.

Don't really know the mins, but they are suppose to be interviewing later this month for another class........I will say there are several Arrow and Gemini guys still out there and they all have the big airplane/International background. They have a lot to choose from.

Better than 4000 TT, over 1000 on equipment > 41000 lbs, internal rec just about required.

New process is two day interview, day 1 includes a panel interview with DO, CPs, & training Captain, and a separate interview with the new VP of HR. Day 2 is a eval in the 737 sim. You're on the hook for your own ride to MIA and your own hotel.

Rumor mill running very positive. -400s 'on the way'. Training dept expects to go to train the trainer 1 Nov.

Meanwhile, still short staffed on the classic, requesting volunteers to stay out on days off.

Don't forget the 2 year, $24,000 training contract.

Good to see things have changed since my interview in 2007 which consisted of a phone call from the CP on a Thursday asking if I could be in MIA on Monday....

Actually, great group of guys there that were shackled by bad leadership. Unfortunately it took 3 years for Oak Hill to flush Norwalk but it sounds like they've finally done it and everything I've heard sounds like things are looking up there.

Whatever happened to the Cargo 360 guys? Are they part of Southern?

Only about 10 or 12 transitioned over (the rest had/found other options) and only about 6 remain there to date.

Ditto what SpongeBob said....

I got the call from Southern 2 days ago for the interview in MIA. Sounds like a class at the end of OCT.

Guys, I have 4 buddies working there along with 8,000 hours on the 727. I am sure there are better qualified out there with 747 time, Its just the luck of the draw and I have really needed a lucky hand lately . Just need to get through the interview. I will update once it is over.
