Rhino Driver,
Ask one of your Delta Pilot Employee Recommendations to get your name to the Delta Pilot Selection Office via phone call, email, or even in person, ANYTHING! (This goes for everyone trying to get on with Delta) I think this is the key to getting your app looked at now, among the growing sea of new applicants. I know it may not seem fair, but it is the nature of the beast. I think this is why I got the "interview" email. They are going through the applicant list but I think a phone call trumps the list. I bet you are just as qualified as I am, if not more. Your app just needs some "internal" visibility. I hope I am not being a downer. Good Luck, Dude!!!

Get to a Air Inc fair.

I have no recs nor do I know a soul at Delta. I went to an Air Inc fair and dropped off my resume and got a interview email about a month later, mine is in May.

I'll have to do that when I return to the states. If you don't mind me asking what are your stats? Good luck with your upcoming interview.

Hornet drvr. About 2600 TT, 1800 Turbine PIC-(w/ conversion).

At the job fair they actually divided the line waiting to drop off resumes into military/civilian. They seem to lean towards military.

I was very fortunate to have 6 Delta Pilot Recs, both Captains and FOs. IMHO, it was not until one of them called the Pilot Selection Office I got the email. I think it could only take one Rec to help you. I sent out 6 emails for Delta Pilot Employee Recs hoping to get just one. Imagine my surprise when all 6 added their rec. I was just lucky. I am very thankful to say the least.

Arjmjj has excellent advice about attending an Air Inc Job Fair. I went to one last year. What a great place to get "face time" with any airline's Pilot Hiring Department. I forgot to add the Air Inc Job Fair "Avenue" for getting your name to the Pilot Selection Office to my last post, especially if you do not have any Delta Recs.

Good Luck Arjmjj!
Good Luck to everyone!

Wow. I would think doing that would open the door to all sorts of complaining (or worse) about injustice towards one group and favoritism toward another. Surprised they would do something like that.

It was actually the first 4 guys in the new line that were military, not sure about the rest. We convinced ourselves we were special.

Special needs maybe! As in short bus kids.

The HR rep did split the mil guys off into a second line but it was late in the day and there was still a long line. I was surprised at how long the line was for Delta. They were impressed because I had spelled Delta Air Lines correctly (versus Airlines) on my resume

Good luck with the interview Piper. Let us know how it goes.
