This is undoubtably the greatest advice and best post I have ever seen on APC. Possibly even the best in the history of webboards.

From a business standpoint there is no point in training folks only to pay them to sit at home getting paid for doing nothing while they wait for IOE. I would not have minded that, but it does make sense.
If it's going to fall apart, hopefully it falls apart BEFORE we start class and quit our current jobs and not after!

Completely agree. As is, where is; no warranty expressed or implied.

Good advice indeed.

He is just trying to share information about what life and schedule is like at Omni and not trying to win any battles here. NightIP is one of the most humble guys you will ever meet, especially on aviation standards. He has nothing but good intentions when sharing information about what he knows. He is not out to impress anyone or anything like that.

Congrats on the class dates to those that got the call today! I wonder if this means that there will not be April or May classes because of the IOE bottleneck?

From what I was told by someone in the June 21st class, the May class is full, but they are still waiting to hear if 6 from the May class will take it or defer. If they defer, they could move the June 21st poolies into the May class.
