I will be attending as well Friday so thank you for the great piece of advice! Curious for other attendees, what do you plan on wearing? It says business casual but that means a very wide range of options. In addition, has anyone had experience with the seniority # system? How fast do they go through it? Thanks guys!

"Business Casual" at an interview or job fair means a suit!

It says on the FAPA website "business casual - leave your suit for the interview." Somewhere else on the website it says that wearing a suit may make it seem like you're trying too hard (whatever that means) and will make you stand out, but not in a good way.

It's all confusing to me, but I'm going to wear dress pants/shirt and a tie. Basically a suit without the jacket.

wear a suit. if/when you get a call to set up in the in person interview, your phone screen interviewer will tell you.

Business casual is what they requested. Not wearing a suit. So, dress pants/ slacks, collared shirt, dress shoes, no tie or jacket for me.
I am not sure how seniority works. Every time I look my number gets lower, I don't get it. Maybe people are backing out or not attending and that's changing the seniority?

Thanks for the replies so far!

It obviously says on the page to wear business casual. With that said, I don't see why they wouldn't want people wearing suits to a job fair. It doesn't make sense to me, but then again I didn't want to stand out for wearing the wrong attire either. I may just bring options for both lol.

My number is also going down rapidly which I'm guessing is due to the majors not showing up. Hopefully that means we can get some solid facetime with the recruiters and plead out case.

When is everyone going? I plan on taking an early flight tomorrow morning.

I think you'll find most people at these at the very least wearing a tie and many wearing a jacket as well. Regardless of what FAPA said, I wouldn't want to stand out as the underdressed guy...

Don't sweat it. I was a no-tie guy for my actual Atlas interview, and got hired. If the job fair says business casual, just go with it and don't wear a suit. Atlas won't care.

Atlas doesn't offer any travel benefits for your family except for some kind of flat rate ID90 on Delta I believe. Please correct me if I'm wrong. All I could find in the forum is a $200 stby ticket on Delta. I know pilots keep their mileage when they deadhead on AA, Delta, etc so is there any good options as far as credit cards go to maximize those miles? American and US airways are offering 50,000 bonus miles to new members right now. I'm thinking about applying for both and having those miles merge whenever they merge the credit card points.
