Tunes is busy defending the argument that it doesnít help. Checklistmonkey threw out his opinion as a fact and I gave my data point to contradict him.

You are correct, it is all speculation, as the people that know arenít saying it on here. Even if they did, there would be multiple posts to challenge them and say the opposite is true.

Does having your application in longer help you? sure because they can see it earlier, but delaying to put your application in by no means hurts your chances of being hired.
On the contrary, if you reread what I said, I said it Ďseemsí to matter. I didnít state anything as unrefuttable fact. If you donít for sure, err to the conservative.

For what itís worth I had my application in for just under 3 months and got the email to interview a few years ago. Regional guy, no internals, just did the application and here I am.

So hereís how it REALLY works. If you want to work here then when thereís a spot on your application, put a response. Publish the app. Wait until you get an interview email.

Or you could spend your free time in a cyber war arguing about whether you should have a long application or a short application!!!

How much PIC time did you have on your application just out of curiousity?

What crewdawg said: get your app in ASAP and put an accurate availability date on it.

If you're seeking advice on this topic, that's what you need to know and you can ignore the multiple pages of meaningless arguing on this thread.

Best advice yet. Once you have your stuff in one sock on the application publish it.

Almost, IMHO. Once you think you have your stuff in a sock: print it out, check it again ON PAPER, have 3 people go over it with a fine tooth comb, make corrections THEN publish it.

Not to add fuel to the fire, but....prolly a difference between military pilot apps and civilian apps as far as timing goes as to the submission time coupled with the once a year review. I've known lots of military guys that get hired with minimal app dwell time.....prolly the civilian guys show more intent with longer dwell time and it prolly helps...not sure it makes much diff in the military spectrum

Kinda like master degrees...almost all military guys have one...not many RJ guys have one....2 different animals

Just my 2 cents

Well isn't this a fun little glimpse into Delta (or maybe pilot?) culture? Everyone thinks they're the smartest person in the room then gets butthurt when someone suggests the notion that in fact, there may be someone smarter in the room. Then the parties argue minutia beyond the attention span of anyone interested in the answer.

Exactly right. Fill it out early, honestly and to the best of your ability, check for errors and omissions closely, update often, enhance when possible. And wait.
