Atlas HR has never complied with their promised response time after interviews, sometimes missing by months.

What is the current total number of active FOs flying the line in CVG on 76?
How many Regular and Hybrid lines in this bid period (CVG 76)?

The Jan bid pac listed 66 767 F/Os in CVG. Because of carry over from the December bid only 35 were bidding. Of the 35 lines, 23 were regular, 8 were hybrid and 3 reserve.

The latest vacancy award has 35 new hires for the 76 in CVG and 34 for the 74 in ANC.

So with the latest hiring going on for a year now, how many were hired into 767 from Jan 2014 to Jan 2015?
Any educated guess on how quickly can they fill those 35 vacancies on 76?

Has anyone successfully attempted to use known crewmember access points without wearing their uniform? The KCM website notes the policy change effective 13 Jan 15.

Yup. I did it on the 13th. I had jeans, Vans, and a beard. No questions asked. Beautiful.

The seniority list as of 12/31/14 shows 22 767 FO's hired in 2014, all of them from August onwards. One class per month. There were 7 hired in August, then 4 in each of the last 4 months of the year (except Dec, when 1 guy left for Delta the day after class started leaving only 3).

Two weeks ago, I was on a flight with a Check Airman doing OE for one of the Sept. New Hires. He apparently took his checkride in Nov, had 2 legs of OE then sat for over a month before his next leg of OE. He was scheduled to finish OE about now. I do not know if he simply fell through the cracks or the delay in completing OE is par for the course.

I flew with one of the Aug new hires right after he finished OE back in Nov. And I've since flown with 2 more of his classmates in Dec. However, that class was at the head of the line when it comes to OE, so their experience probably won't be typical of what 767 NH's will see this year.

OE is the biggest bottleneck in the training program here due to lack of sufficient numbers of Check Airmen. It's a pretty egregious oversight on management's part, given that the current hiring situation was easily anticipated in plenty of time to train adequate numbers of check airmen.

As to how long I think it will take the company to fill the 35 767 NH slots? If attrition continues like it has over the past 6 months, and given the training bottlenecks, I don't think they'll manage to fill all 35 slots before the end of the year.

Double-edged sword. Although they added a few check airmen over time, it was offset by attrition. Now, they can't hire new ones because the FAA wants lots of time in type, (in part because there'll be nothing but low-time captains and new-hire FOs from now on) and pretty much every captain nearing his 3-year seat lock wants to bid back to the 747. Most of the guys who meet the time-in-type restrictions are sitting in the right seat.

Atlas needs to pay all check airmen/instructor the same, like at many other airlines. They all get 747 pay so there's no reason to leave 767.
