Default FDX Hiring Process Announced

From Chief Pilot:


Issue Date: 01/20/11 2242z


Finally, something bright is on the horizon. The first of approximately 30
meter pilots are finishing their first week of BI. Two more classes of
meter pilots are scheduled for mid February and early March. After that, we
should start seeing the Poolies, internal applicants, and new externals.
This FCIF should answer most of the questions on your role in this process.

What is the IP address of the Pilot Application Website?

www.pilotcredentials.com

How do you endorse and/or recommend a candidate?

FedEx pilots may use the Pilot Employment Recommendation Form (PERF) to
declare their endorsement and/or recommendation of a candidate’s
application. The form can be accessed via a link on the PFC main page
under “Forms”. The link is currently inactive. Link activation will occur
on Monday, 24 January or shortly thereafter.

You may complete one PERF for each candidate you seek to recommend;
however, you may only provide endorsement to one candidate at a time by
selecting the appropriate prompt on the Form. The Form is automatically
linked to the respective candidate’s profile. Please note that frequent
and/or numerous recommendations may have less weight than single or
infrequent recommendations.

Can a person without access to PFC submit a recommendation?

Yes, recommendations may be submitted via the “Recommendations” prompt on
the website. Additionally, candidates may upload recommendations, as an
attachment to their profile.

Responsibilities of Endorsement

When you endorse a candidate, you are personally attesting to a candidate’s
skill, qualifications and suitability for employment with FedEx Express.
Should your candidate be hired, you will play a major role in the mentoring
of that individual from post IOE through the end of their probationary
period. You will not be able to offer endorsement to another candidate
during that period. Should your candidate not succeed, you are free to
provide another endorsement.

IAW Corporate guidelines, no more "Meet and Greets"

Do not bring candidates in to meet your ACP or other Managers; however, you
may inform a Manager, preferably via email, that you have endorsed a
candidate. Retired pilots should follow the same procedure or they may
contact the SCP, preferably via email.

Mentoring

Every new hire will be enrolled in the mentoring program. The program
starts during IOE and ends upon completion of probation. You will receive
specific details as soon as they are finalized.

The Process

For now, the only major change to the interview process is the revival of a
new and improved Situational Based Interview (SBI).

Does a candidate require an endorsement?

FedEx does not require candidates to have an endorsement in order to be
considered.

Will we consider furloughed pilots?

We believe in providing equal opportunities for all qualified candidates.
New Hires who hold a seniority number with another carrier will be required
to resign their status with the other carrier.

If rejected, can you reapply?

Candidates who are rejected must wait one year before they reapply.

How long will the candidate profile system be open?

The application system is not a "first come first serve" process. The web
site will stay open for 60 days.

Thanks Humpty.

FEX done and waiting for the 24th. I wonder if the website is going to crash with so many applicants login in that day.

Well.. if it were me, and I knew per the chief pilot that the application window is NOT first come first served and it will be open for 60 days... I might wait until day 2 or 3 just to make sure my app is not lost in the flurry of electrons the first few hours...


But you all can do what you want. Good Luck!

Default Integrity Reminder!

Hopefully this is not news to anyone out there, but a friendly reminder. Do NOT pull that "integrity circuit breaker" when filling out your application, computing flight time, job experience credentials, etc. FedEx is a great employer and a superb place to work; while they will tolerate honest mistakes, the corporate culture here has absolutely ZERO tolerance for lying, dishonesty, resume padding, etc. They can and do check EVERYTHING, and they will find out the truth. And you will be gone before you even got here. Good luck and remember, the truth will set you free! See you folks soon.

My comment was more about a lot of people tripping all over themselves to be the first one to submit the profile when the window opens on the 24th. I would say get some sleep.. take your time and do it right the first time.

That's all.. honestly.. I'm trying to be helpful.

A little friendly advice to those who are about to apply who haven't completed their FE written yet...

DO NOT indicate on your application that you have the FE written done if you don't even if you plan on getting it the day after you apply. I've talked to two individuals so far who intended on applying the moment the app window opens on the 24th with the intention of answering "yes", they have their FE written, but don't actually have it yet. They both said they planned on completing the FE written in a week or two when they can get the time off to get it done. BIG MISTAKE. As previously stated, FedEx is huge on integrity and will not tolerate dishonesty. Falsifying your application is a show-stopper. It may appear somewhat innocuous to some folks the particular day you complete your FE written as long as you have it when you show up to interview. Not so. The company will compare the date you indicated you completed your FE written with the date stamped on your FE written. The completion date better be before or on the day you applied to FedEx. The application window will be open for 60 days and it is NOT "first in, first out." There is absolutely no need to rush the application process. Everyone should have plenty of time to get their FE written done BEFORE they apply.

Hope this helps anyone else out there contemplating taking a "harmless" shortcut.

Ok, so that begs yet another question about taking the FE written - will it have to be within the past 24 months? When looking at the link to the previous pilotcredentials requirement, I didn't see anything requiring that... am I missing it? (I have mine from several years ago, and I have been flying for a 121 carrier the whole time.)
