Default Anyone from Air Cargo Carriers?

Anyone on here currently at UPS or Fedex who originated at Air Cargo Carriers? I'm considering it a viable option and wanted to get some input from you guys. Anything helps.

Don't think your chances are very good of going directly from a 135 to the two most sought after companies in the entire airline industry.

I've never heard of Air Cargo Carriers. Don't recall anyone that I have ever flown with mentioning that in their background either.

Default Air Cargo..

When I interviewed at FedEx last January there was a female who was flying Part 135, Shorts 330's in our group. Second time at the FedEx interview for her, but unfortunately she was not selected for employment. This is indicative that FedEx is indeed looking at all pilots from all different backgrounds. Keep the faith and keep shooting for the "Stars". Your dreams will be the only thing that sustains you during the hard times, don't let anyone tell you won't make itI started out in similar circumstances...

Cheers!
