When it comes to investing, apparently we're all doing it wrong. (Prices rose almost 700% in a decade)

To all the old guys, change is a coming so get ready. This time, as long as we vote in the majority for an assessment, we will have professionals negotiating our next contract.


Happy holidays
Not true. I have at least two people in the pool without a training date.

So do you mean that the "pool" is devoid of people from any interviews prior to the last round in early December (the new guys)? Some that interviewed early this month have been emailed indicating they're on the preferential hiring list. I know of at least 9 without class dates on that list. If the list is that small, then FANTASTIC. Happy holidays indeed

What do you mean it's empty? Are you saying folks have been assigned classes, and just haven't been called yet?

Guys,

The way Atlas has been using the pool is they place you in there AFTER the interview, but you do not yet have a class date...PERIOD. No other definition of that word.

Somebody please correct me if I got that wrong.

Good luck.

That was my understanding and as I am on the preferential hiring list, but have not been notified of a class assignment, I have to assume that the pool is not empty...unless there's another way of looking at it that I'm not aware of... Was really hoping for the call for the Jan class as my "gument" check goes away come Jan...well 75% of it, anyway!

Yes, so by that definition, there must be at least 20 or so people in the pool currently, from October and December interviews. Were there November interviews as well?

Actually, I'm a lot more curious about what the drop in crude price is going to do to the long term viability of the SonAir and Astral contracts.

It's not gonna do any thing...the demand for oil will still stay the same, if not increase because of the cheap gas at every station in the nation as compared to just this past summer.
