I apologize for the tone of my post 9940. That was out of line.

With the exception of US Treasuries, the fixed income element is fraught with fees, hidden costs and inefficiency for the individual investor.My frustration in this area grows with each adjustment in my asset allocation.

Good day gents, any chance folks could post the Times of recent interviewees/poolies? I'm just trying to get an idea of the current competitive quals. I'm fairly "low time" at over 3k but know a fellow or two that was able to snag the interview with those times albeit about 2yrs ago. Thanks.

Hey flyboy thanks for the reply.
I took the assessment test on November 19th and still waiting for an invite to interview. Obviously I was hoping to hear something by now. I'm just trying to be patient.

How long after you received the email did you take the test?

I feel your pain man, been waiting since Sept. Hopefully the calls will come soon! Was on a trip and took the test 2 days later.

Gentlemen,

It may be appropriate to write a polite email if you have been waiting for a call (after you took the technical evaluation test) for the face-to-face interview.

However, the interviews, and really the entire process takes a back seat to the very busy peak-season flying that Atlas 747s do. Please be patient and we have it on good authority that the entire process will resume with fervor when the baby new year is very young.

Good luck.

I was going to wait to see if I get the call in Jan. If not, I was going to email and make sure I didn't mess something up. Thoughts on that approach?

Don't feel bad puckhead. I took the test in Sept. As well still no call. I called to follow up early Dec. And the lady said she was surprised that they hadn't called me. She was going to resend my stuff to the HR manager to get phone screened. Still no call being patient for the right time. I have a clean record all around and two internal Recs. Don't know what else to do but just wait.

I received the email invitation to take the technical evaluation test on Nov. 14th and then took the test on the 19th. Is it possible that scoring 100% on the test is a negative thing?
I have three internal recommendations but I have a background issue from 1999 that I had to disclose on the questionnaire so that could also be the issue.
I have also heard from another line pilot that it'll be early in the new year when the process ramps up again. Staying positive and hoping for a good outcome.
Thanks for the feedback!
