I talked to Atlas at WAI in March 2013 and didn't receive the invite for the online test until September 2014--18 months later. I thought maybe she didn't like me and I wasn't going to be contacted then, they contacted me. I have no idea how the process works.

They have even gone as far as using the brief meet/greet as a sort of phone interview substitute followed by giving out an invite for the online test (this was for a furloughed 10k+ hour heavy jet pilot).



If you do go, prepare yourself by being able to speak intelligently about Atlas and their operation. Also, be prepared to convince them that Atlas will be your last airline. They are concentrating efforts on candidates who are likely to NOT flee to the majors in a year.



Good luck.

This was my exact scenario, although I have a few less hours. Good things can definitely come from a job fair, just be ready to stand out from the other thousands.

Thanks for the info guys! I'll do my research and hopefully it'll help.

Maybe somebody could explain how "Bid Protection" should work also and how we don't have that in the contract either.

Ha! Yup. My schedule just changed. Going home 2 days early. That's great, right? Oops, you lose $1000 because of it. Fun stuff.

Any more calls going out? My work situation has become interesting. It would be extremely convenient to get a call for training in Jan or Feb

I know emails have gone out in the last couple days for the online assessment, but I don't know about hiring calls....

Great news! Maybe if this happens more often we'll get the industry standard contract we deserve.
