Does this advice go for the swimmers or the once who hasn't even interviewed yet?

I've sent PMs to a few of you that look like we're in the same position.

I'm heading to the Caribbean on Saturday for a 7-night cruise and wouldn't you know it, this is when the process starts! LOL! Happy of course, but wow, timing!

Could some of you getting invites for the exams and interviews post your quals? I recently heard a change in management has the HR team calling mostly long haul or prior ACMI guys, unlike the wide mix of backgrounds they used to pull from in the past.

5000TT, 4600 Turbine 121. 0 Turbine PIC. Prior military, but not in a pilot capacity. Master's degree. Internal rec.

No ACMI, no long haul, no heavy.

Took the test, waiting for further.

In that case, don't be shy about writing them or calling HR on Friday to tell them your situation.

Swimmers only. Anyway, should be a short dip in the pool considering how many classes we're projecting. YMMV.

There had definitely been an effort to help out furloughed 1224 guys recently. You might see a short-course class or two, especially after the ABX guys get furloughed (I hear there's a gentlemen's agreement to get all of them an interview - estimating 20 guys?). But even so, they generally do a good job of getting a range of guys: mil, RJ, plus a corporate guy or two.

3300 TT, 1382 PIC all jet, former military and current regional pilot. Took and passed test Monday afternoon, hoping to get the call to continue.

Test info was spot on. Plenty of questions straight from the ATP bank. There were a few time and distance problems. Didn't see any oceanic problems but time expired on question 93. Time goes by quick.

Good luck to all that will take the test and congrats to everyone that has passed the test. Don't let anyone fool you it is a bear and do not take it lightly.

Ah yes, thank you. I made it known right after I saw my test results, and replied to HR. They basically told me what I already know, which is to check email and messages often, and be prepared for 10/7-9 dates if I pass possible phone interview and further reviews of my resume and quals. They are very straightforward, polite, and professional.

How many days do you have to get the test done by if they send it?
