YMMV, since they had 7 recruiters, so it obviously depends on whom you spoke.

For me, it was too short. She asked the expected question "How come you want to fly for us?", but that was it. I was probably 4 minutes with her. I saw someone else who had started before me, and was still at it when I was done....

Granted, they had everything they needed about me: my resume had been sent early January. They sent me the assessment test on Wednesday, and I completed it that same night, 2 days prior to the fair. So I really was going in the hope that we actually could schedule an interview date...

Alas, she explained that they just switched to a new computer software, and she isn't too sure how this computer spits out the info now, or on what criterias.

At the very least, I hope that going to the fair was a way to put our files to the top, once they get back to Purchase.

And hey, we got a bag, a flashlight, and a small notebook with Atlas logo on them, so we got that going for us!...

It was the best job fair experience ive had to date. Talked to two people about 15 min each. Conversational only. Why Atlas, what about being gone for so long...how do you know so and so....why not aa, dal.....the pilot i spoke to mentioned things they are working on to make it better. Expect 767 hiring for time being with cvg base.

Fingers crossed. Starting to prep for test just in case.

What things did the pilot say that they were working on to make it better???? Inquiring minds want to know... Do you remember who the pilots were? Just curious who they are sending to these. Thanks.

It's pretty common for people to put the first name of the person they talked to at a job fair on here. Their whole name is probably listed on the fairs website. Lets not get too crazy

If I remember correctly, it was a female 747 captain and a 767 FO. Remaining 4 were HR's.
The others can correct me if I am wrong...
