How does HR decide who to call for next round of interviews after online test?

The new system is HR, R and DNR. Supposedly the pool is shallow and with the large classes lately, it would appear that you might not have to wait more than a class or two. That's how they tell us it works, anyway.
Excellent! I'm anxiously awaiting the phone call from that 914 area code.

Interesting. Just curious, how did the guys you know find out which category they were placed into? The email just said congrats on successfully completing the interview.

You don't know. Only HR, the guys that did the interviews and some of the Union people know the results of the interview session. It's typically disclosed in an email to those groups. The email summarizes; how many interview, how many in each group (HR,R,DNR). The backgrounds (no individual names).
HR is suppose to be the the next class, R is in the pool. But I have seen a Rs get a date before HR.

They have talked about mixing R's and HR's in a class to provide a mix.

I just had the call today and it went great! I'm scheduled for 6/10 interview in MIA. I did write down a few of the questions from the call. Pretty basic stuff...
  • Will you have any issue being away from home for 17 days, extendable up to 20?
  • If selected, will you be able to start in 2 weeks and one day?
  • If selected, how will you prepare for ground school?
  • Do you have any testing failures? (Seemed only to be interested in failures within the past 5 years, beyond that you should have no problem here. Just be honest.)
  • Why Atlas?
I hope you get a call soon as well! Good luck!

Thanks! I took the online test at the end of April. Right before the ANC interviews.

Hi There

I have been following you guys for a bit and to date you are spot on getting up to the interview, i.e.; test phone calls etc. Rumor has it the dress code is semi casual, can anyone who recently made it through verify what the expectations may be.

Thanks
