Is it correct to assume Atlas generally (so far this year) interviews mid month and has one class that starts at the end?

How many folks in each class and how many do they currently plan to hire this year?

Thanks-

KC

Liked the jet but the schedules were rough. Too much deadheading, not enough flying. Averaged about 30-40 hrs a month for the three short months I was there. My awarded lines started out as 70-85 hrs only to be decimated by C.S.

There are things I will miss but DH around the world for two legs which happens quite frequently aint one of them...

It's important for everyone thinking of working for Atlas, or any ACMI outfit for that matter, to reread this thread and note all the information about what life is like. The schedules do change daily and deadheading is no small part of what happens. This is a great place to be but only if it fits into your view of life. If you kind of like leaving home not knowing where you'll wind up then it will work. If schedule changes, many legs with few landings (we heavy crew just about all flights because of length), and maneuvering around the world to match up with your airplane cause difficulty then it probably won't. That's not to put anybody down at all. All jobs aren't a fit for all people. Please just be realistic about the ACMI world and find out what it holds before joining. These are a lot of hoops to jump through and a couple months spent out of your life just to find out that it's not a good fit.

Does anyone know what the shortest time from RESUME/PAQ to a phone call has been? I have been sending resumes once a month since just after the Ice Age ended. I didn't get one in with the PAQ til three weeks ago. I may know people there at Atlas, but not sure. Life in the non sked world the last ten years has been brutal. I have had some interest from some the ExPat carriers, but when they ask me to come 13,000 miles on my nickel, its kinda like somebody yelling FIRE in a theater. My girlfriend says if I wanna keep sleeping with her, I will have to choose between her and the cell phone. The middle of the night calls from China last Fall were getting her PO'd. Just about to sell a kidney via the internet. Savings and dividends bout cut to caca. Help....

Meanwhile, it's slightly frustrating for those that know EXACTLY what the job entails, made it clear on the phone screen as such, want the unpredictability, look forward to the challenges/adventure, can easily hack the 17+ days gone, have completed the phone screen and tech test with the standard "pass", and are not getting the call for interview.

Seems as if there's a few chaps in this thread that fall into that group.
