Unless current/qualified on the 767 and offered the short course. I had four weeks to the day from interview to checkride!

But remember, we have a CBA. I'm not picking on you specifically, but we have lots of guys who consider this job an extension of their military careers, complete with "missions" that need to be accomplished. Come here, enjoy the job, but fly the contract. We're not flying combat sorties or carrying organs for orphans.

Welllllll....I do have a heavily weighted internal rec....inside joke...if you read all the pages in the last month you will get it ....actually, I had zero internal recs while applying and getting to take the test...I just recently got a great rec from an Atlas pilot, but there were a few guys in the April 20 new hire class that did not have internals in the kitty so to speak.

The best way to get an internal rec is go jumpseat in Atlas and express your desire to the pilots, most seem to be very on the ball about helping the rest of us become part of the team....not having an internal rec won't hurt you, however getting one or two can only help you...what does everyone else think...or have?

That's what I figured, it appears internal recs to add a lot weight and are "Giant". Thanks for the insight and congrats on the interview.

I had one internal rec and took the test a couple of weeks ago. Nothing yet. I'm sure the call will come soon.

Default Week of 06/07/2015

Hello there Fellow Aviators,

First off let me say a huge thank you to those in this forum who have asked great questions, and to those who have given great answers! I have read a quite a bit on this thread over the years, and very much recently. Everyones insight has helped massively.

I tend to do more reading and learning here on APC than I do posting. However since my post in the "Introduce yourself" thread a few years ago a lot has changed! A little more experience under the belt and I have been offered the wonderful opportunity to interview at Atlas. I have wanted to work for Atlas for a very, very long time. Just the chance to interview alone has made me excited beyond words!

I completed the online test and phone interview in May, and was offered an interview date.

I am wondering if anyone else who has an interview date coming up (or anyone who has interviewed recently) would like to chat a bit. Perhaps compare gouges, and see if we've all been on the same page as far as preparation goes. Might as well implement the "cooperate and graduate" philosophy now, haha. Feel free to send me a message!

Thanks again to everyone on here!
