How about screw that!

We need 18 and only extendable with all crew members permission.

Default Any contact info?

I drove in tonight to interview tomorrow and they booked my hotel not for the night before but the night of the interview. Anyone I can call after hours to fix this or am I stuck footing the bill?

Thanks.

Call and ask for Crew Scheduling. Ask them to patch you through to Connie at home. he should be able to fix it for you.

Seriously though.....I would wait until the interview tomorrow and then politely bring up with an HR person.

If the Hotel will not adjust your stay , then stay the night on your credit card. Bring the bill to the interview. They will take care of it for you.
Being able to solve that problem would I imagine give you lots of bonus points :-)

Welcome to Kalitta! They do that crap all the time after a long duty day and travel is gone for the night (Ypsi time).

Really? It is not normal but I have had this happen several times over the 5+ years I have been here. Scheduling contacted our after hours travel agency and they made arrangements for a hotel. It turns a long day into a very long day but the problem is solved. Of all the times it has happened to me it was only once that they had the wrong day for our reservation. Mistakes are occasionally made but I would not consider it normal.

Just to add to the gouges already posted:

Interview was very straight forward and laid back. Started with some PRIA paperwork, then about a 30 min presentation on the company. After that was the wiz quiz. Then came the sims. Our interview group was only 3 large so we all crammed into the sim with the instructor. Profile is still the same. Depart JFK 22L/R can't remember which. Climbs to an altitude and some airwork just to get the hang of the airplane. Out for a hold at Deer Park and then the ILS back in. All raw data. I had a blast flying the classic sim. Then we had a short pizza break for lunch and I was first into the oral portion of the interview. Oral was really laid back. No TMMAT stories or technical questions at all. A couple basic questions then I asked them 5 or 6 questions I had written down. That was it.

Was told I would hear Yea/Nah late this week early next. Hoping I get the call.
