I don't know if this was everyone's case, but when I finished my test and viewed the score, it was essentially a distance learning module with an expiration date two months from the date that they sent me the email. Basically, it probably defaults to a two-month window.

That's sort of a WAG. YMMV. Word is that they want it done within a week, though.

Thanks for the info. Could someone clarify.. Is the phone interview before or after the test?

When you guys update your app, are you sending a new PAQ pdf along with a new resume? Is this the recommended update technique?

They are very straightforward, polite, and professional.
In that case, figure out a way to get a text copy or email of ALL your voice mails sent to you. it is easier to check that vs checking your phone in a foreign land!! Or just suck it up, and turn your phone on dry land, and check the actual voice messages.

Good luck.

Thanks 744driver. I do have google voice, so I'll make sure I get the email notification turned on so I can't miss it and I won't owe AT&T thousands of $. Good tip!

Ryan, I sent an updated PAQ since I noticed I left something blank when I initially sent it in a while ago. They didn't ask for it, nor did they acknowledge it, so who knows if that was the right thing to do.

Anyone with the 411: When they call for the phone interview, if you're not able to answer, do they call back a few times? Do they leave you a voicemail and request that you call them back? Or do they assume that you don't want the job and call it a day?

The sooner the better. There's no hard and fast rule, but word is the longer you wait, there's some kind of deduction from your overall score. Wait until your trip ends or you have a long layover. Study a bit and utilize CRM when you take the test. Don't get hung up - come back to an involved question if you have time at the end. It goes by quick.

The process here is opaque, but best we can tell, you score points for each phase of the interview process, from your resume to the online test to the phone interview to the in-person interview. Surely some count more than others, but at the end, apparently they're all totaled up into some kind of final score, which determines your ranking in the hiring pool. The pool gets reindexed every time they run interviews, so it's in your best interest to try to maximize your score.

I know someone who got test invite. They had MD-80 PIC, DC-9 PIC and MD-11...I think all FO MD11 time. A LOT of overseas experience.

Two friends of mine got the invite for the online test. Both are regional guys. One is a captain and the other has always been an FO. One finished the test and last week and passed and the other is taking it soon. No interview call yet for the guy who passed. Hopefully soon. I'm happy to see that with the change in leadership at the training center they are still reaching out to regional pilots. We have a nice mix here at Atlas and everyone brings something to the table.

On my iPhone -
  • Google Voice will email and text you if you miss a call and atttempt to convert voicemail into something you can read.
  • AT&T international roaming is free to activate (I think) and offers reduced rates on calls and free incoming texts.
