^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Nuff said?

As for the -8, Boeing needs to hear the complaints as they are the only ones who can solve the problem.

A simple fact of life is that if you want to work for Atlas you need to use a Windows machine. The Atlas IT department is stretched, and they put zero effort into validating their systems with anything other than Windows and IE. Zero is also the amount of support they provide for non Windows/IE users and zero is the amount of sympathy people get when they run into problems (and they do run into problems).

For example, several months ago some of the guys got a nasty surprise when their monthly bid award did not look anything like what they had bid. It turned out that the line numbers had not been correctly displayed on iPads. And the company response was as described above.

And for the record, I carry an iPad. I also carry a cheap Windows laptop for company work.

I own several Apple products, and do ALL my company related work on either my iPad or MacBook, and never had an issue. Guess I'm just lucky, but no real issues here.

Kind of sounds like six in one and a half dozen in the other. I think I will go with the conservative approach of using a PC.

Any thoughts on the timeline of when I should complete the test? I was given "anytime this next week." For those who will be interviewing in January, HR was requesting the test to be completed by Sunday evening. The reason stated was that HR would be having a half day in the office on Monday and off on Tuesday.

Is there an advantage of points accumulation taking the test sooner? I'm guessing that following the direction of "sometime next week" is more appropriate than a rush.

No issues using my old Macbook with Firefox, and i've used it for everything, even the online test and monthly bidding. I've had way more issues with the company-supported PCD. Whatever floats your boat.

777, i'm sure their advice is correct. Take it when you're ready but don't drag it out. Good luck!

On friday I received the call from the HR department and was offered to take the online assessment. However, when I log-on to the Altas system the "My Courses" option is not available. Is there anyone to contact who can make it available. Before you laugh, yes I know it's a sunday.

The CBT site was recently updated. I think it says "Enrolled Courses" now. Check it again--you should see some tabs after you log in. Click on them and look for your test. Good luck.

If that doesn't work, HR is in for half of Monday... Call early!

Good Luck!

Attire for the new hire training is collared shirt and pants during the week, jeans are OK on weekends. Don't forget a tie for the oral and type ride. No jackets or suits needed.
