Been applying since 2011, interviewed in NY last week, got the call this morning! April 20 class date.

Good luck to those still waiting. Be patient, your time will come.

NJAX seems to be spot on. I interviewed last week and received a phone call today with the job offer. April 20 class date. The letters and other required docs are supposed to follow. YMMV.

On another note, I am excited to be joining Atlas. What a great day. Been dreaming of flying the whale since I was knee high. Cheers!

Not familiar with that HR, R, and DNR is.

Do most people getting hired have jet time? I am getting close to applying, but all I have is turboprop time.

That's actually less DNRs than you would have seen previously. For a while, Atlas was turning away a good 50% of interviewees...

ASpilot2be:

HR, R, and DNR stand for "Highly Recommend," "Recommend," and "Do Not Recommend." It's a new system of ranking that took the place of scoring.

Keep in mind, that "back in day", when they used to run 12 candidates a day they only averaged 3-4 of the 12 hired. 3 days of 12 a day, only 9-12 hired of 36 per week interviewed.

I say AGAIN, that was the AVERAGE. There were weeks where only a few of the 36-ish per week were hired, as well as weeks where 6-8-10 a day were hired.

^^^^^ as mentioned, it was actually about 60-70% turned away, ON AVERAGE.

Just got the email placing me in the pool this morning so I guess I'm one of the lucky 53. What's the best gouge on class dates? In the interview they said 3 classes. Are these classes of 18? How much time between?
