Apparently, not enough. But I'm stepping up my game.

That was kind of what I was alluding to when I mentioned "following directions". They want the PAQ/resume, nothing more and nothing less. So that's what I sent. Besides, I'm sure that they are getting bombarded with PAQ's/resumes and don't have time/patience to read CL's, etc.

Man I hope so, that's what I did;

I assume the "s" designated more than one attachment.

This is starting to sound a bit childish, not calling qualified people because they sent a cover letter??? Really? Are they this anal about everything?

So, how is that any different than a 19-year old college intern "screening" applicants at all the "legacy" carriers in the early 90s. I personally know several of these interns that did this...

If they want it on pink, purple, or black, or white, or green paper...just play their game and get yourself in the door.

That is if you want the job...or at least the interview.

Sorry to be a little harsh here, but it is a buyer's market. Atlas (and others) are in the driver's seat. They are able to set the guidelines and requirements that might seem arbitrary and archaic, but I'm not sure you have a choice here...

Good luck...

For those of you interested/interviewing, pay the $10 and get a lifetime membership to this pro pilot world website as it will also be the behind the curtain Atlas forum for crap slinging and latest company rumors. This link has a lot of feedback from interviews earlier this year.......Good times! even though it is titled recalls it morphed into a hodge podge of interview gouge and company hiring practices with notifications of yeah or neah.

*************.com

The aforementioned above statement is not wholly owned or endorsed LLC by the poster nor does it disclose the risks associated with incessant scouring the internet for worthless postings. Together these posts reflect the opinion established the morning after consuming 32oz drafts and chicken wings. these posts are no longer accurate factual statements as they were initiated for the good of piloting professionals whom situations frequently change.

The latest juju from ************* website......I've been in the school house all week and things are buzzing loudly. Fleet manager (who is nameless since this is a repost) told us that we are leasing a UAL744 immediately for additional passengar work. It comes on the property Jan7 to go into the paint shop (atlas blue colors). N194UA. He also said the LCF is understaffed and we are upgrading and hiring to be ready for a fully ramped up LCF operation. He alluded to a couple more pax -400s in the works. Atlas is searching for planes to acquire (hence the lease of N194UA as a stop gap while acquiring our own). And his words, "light twin operation went from stove to back burner to freezer but now into the microwave. Lots and lots of new hires in 2011...making 2010 pale by comparison". Lots of positive comments and up-beat attitudes in the schoolhouse.
