Okay, so it has 20 or so people from the last couple of rounds of interviews...not the 50-80+ they were keeping a year or more ago. Don't get bogged down in all this. You interviewed, you did well enough to get in the pool. Relax, go about your life, and hope for a short swim. Waiting is hard to handle, but the call will come.

Good luck...and remember nothing much will happen till the baby new year comes in...

Actually most oil analysts and shippers have stated that oil demand will fall 5-6% the next 18 months due to weak demand in China and India and other developing nations.....

That said... lower oil, means lower jet fuel prices meaning some shippers will opt again for air freight vs other means of transportation....

I always wrote/updated a cover letter for the body of the email with the PAQ and resume attached. Happy to say I just got an email invite to take the online assessment. I've been sending my updates periodically since 2012, though, so who knows what the magic formula really is. I'm not exactly a "high time" guy anyway, so that may account for my timeline. Frankly, having watched this thread for a couple years now, I don't think there is a fool proof way to get your foot in the door. Just do what you think is best, update often, and keep at it. Good luck.

3500TT, 2000TPIC/Multi, almost all Mil C-130 time.

Cheers!

Hey guys I received the call from HR and they invited me to the interview in Miami. Been lurking for a while and in the process of going through the 1000 pages of this forum and trying to get an idea of the culture at atlas and what a typical schedule is like. At one point I saw a post that listed page numbers of important info but I can't seem to find it again. Anyone know where that post is? Also it would be nice to take a look at the contract if that's available online. Thanks to all who post here, the info is so helpful!

Thanks John Carr, that's very helpful! Are people happy there? Seems like it. I'm wondering if a lot of people are leaving for one of the big three. The grass is always greener right?

Lots of FOs hired over the last 3 years are bailing.

It's a job. The more money, the more time off and the better benefits are a good draw. Making 3rd year as an FO at one of those shops is the same as a mid scale 76 CA here.

Thanks Jerry, that is a big plus for the majors for sure. Any opinion on going to a place like JetBlue vs Atlas?
