We need to take our own personal daily negotiating strategy to get what you want. I love my job and will say it needs to be improved but keep hiking the daily skirt for the company is a losing strategy! Sick Tired hungry underpaid...
What makes you think I'm that? I've said on here before that people would be crazy to turn down a shot at the majors. It's fun to work at Atlas but the contract is so terrible that you'd leave in a heartbeat for something better.

Hello forum...I just took the online test a few days ago. Anyone know how the score is determined? Is it a percentage from the total 100 questions or a percentage of the questions your answered? My score was crap, but I'm trying to figure out what it was based on. Any help or insight is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Yes, it is a percentage. What do you consider a crap score? I know guys that have gotten lower scores and were called...

Did it say you passed? I think that the score only matters as in the point system that begins after you pass the test, everything you do will be point based ie.. interview, essay, recommendations, ect. Let us know if you get a call for an interview. Good luck

I only got through 49 of the 100 questions and skipped a couple of those to try to come back to later. My score when my time ran out was 38!...I was pretty shocked to see that score, because if I only got a 38% that means that I only answered around 17 questions correct out of the 45 our so that I actually answered. There's no way that I only answered 17 correctly, I would guess that I may have missed one or two, but not 62% incorrectly. That's why I'm curious as to what the score is based on...supposedly, the questions you don't answer aren't counted against you.

Did HR tell you the questions you don't answer aren't counted against you? Never heard that before - that would be a major shift.

When I interviewed, a 66 or higher was a passing grade. Sorry to hear you had such difficulty, there's a lot of good gouge on here about how to take the test and do well enough. Utilize CRM and guess/tag questions that would bog you down and you should be able to get through all 100 questions and have time to go back and review.

I wasn't told specifically that unanswered questions didn't count against you...only you didn't have to answer all 100 questions to pass. I've been told that that magic number to pass is 65. I was told to reapply in 6 months...kind of sucks!

It appears that HR and "the great minds" want people who know how to cheat.

In 6 months apply again. And for the next test have 4 or 5 friends there with laptops to help you. If you can not do that, don't feel badly. Neither can the guy at home in Idaho who has 20 years of real world experience but is now unemployed in the middle of nowhere.

If this test was real they would do it at the interview. But they don't, and it isn't. But it does work well for those in a crash pad whose real goal is Delta.

Default Online test

Anyone know how long after taking the online test to expect a call or email for the interview. I took the test a couple of weeks ago and no call yet.
Thanks

The only thing that will make them aware is if the planes stop moving, which they haven't had much of a hiccup with yet...(keep on out basing!!!) They do not care about you, or us, or hiring, or other contracts, or training expenses. If they did, don't you think it would be clear? Do you really think they are forward looking? No, and its clear every single day out on line. There hasn't been one single indication from Atlas that the things you mention are true. Money is the only thing they understand and we haven't communicated that well enough yet, believe it.
You are equating a STACK of resumes to the fact that they don't care about having to train people only to see them leave?

Keep that cost in mind when profit sharing gets reduced due to that cost.

Yes, there is a "stack." Expect them to use a much finer comb as they go through it.
