Rumor is pool is deep and they are trying to shallow it out. The time from cjo to start date is too long. Currently they have been planning for about 200 newhires a month. Classes start most Tuesdays. Usually, if there is a 5th Tuesday in a month, they don't have a class that week. Of course that can change, but it is how they explained it to me during my time on VA Ave.

I’ll add that they’ll skip a class, maybe two over the holidays. Plus the first class of each month has all the Endeavor flows in it thus it will have a much smaller number of OTS hires.

I performed a bit better on multitasking and dots, but actually slightly worse on Sudoku and wing game.

Where I really made changes was on the personality test. I almost forced myself to rush! I read the question fully, then quickly went with my immediate gut reaction whether good or bad (I used this same strategy on the MMPI). I did do a few strongly agree/disagree but not very many.

To add to that, my buddy and I who took the assessment both agreed that personality probably weigh the most for the assessment. Careertakeoff has a few of these questions you can practice and there are videos they provide which can help with your thought process. It’s pricey but I was able to pass, it definitely helped me personally. YMMV

I think the end goal is go with your first instinct and answer truthfully. You don’t want to be too far on a specific spectrum…

In case anyone was curious or encounters the same issue in the future with the assessment retake, Pilot Selection responded and it was in fact a mistake and they’re looking into the issue.

I waited an additional two months after the three month penalty vector period (total of 5 months), got tired of waiting so I emailed the team ([email protected]) explaining how long I’d been waiting and they send me the link to retest the same day. I’d recommend emailing them a week or two after the three month waiting period.

Default Assessment

Hi,

Odd assessment question

I've read over previous posts on what to expect for the assessment. I was using a couple different prep services for it and there seems to be some extra stuff the prep services added that might not be on the assessment. As I understand the assessment consists of the following:

1. Spatial Orientation - ADF/DG position
2. Reaction Speed - shape matching
3. Deductive logical thinking - Sudoku with shapes,
4. Monitoring - Dot Counting
5. Multi Tasking - Math, repeating shape, and alignment of airplane/runway
6. Complex Control - flying through a tube of obstacles
7. Auditory Comprehension - 18 ATC clearances
8. Personality Test -God help us all

There are a few extra practice ones I've noticed in the prep software but wasn't sure if any of them have been on recent (or any) of the assessments. These include the following

1. Spatial Memory - Like MEMORY game but with quickly flashing symbols
2. Other Spatial orientation - BUT with arrows and choosing direction from previous direction (hard to explain, sorry)
3. Applied numeracy - Word math problems
4. Inductive logical thinking - finding patterns in grids (NOT SUDOKU)

Does anyone know if any of these 4 are on the recent assessment? Are there any other changes?

The bottom four are not on the assessment.

Is there still a way for a current pilot to have an application manually reviewed by HR?

Have a friend that has a great background and can't get the time of day from Daddy D.
