Default New Hire Thread

I figured make a separate thread for new hire questions for those who got the CJO, as I am sure that number is starting to increase. I figure it should last a page or two before it's entirely derailed

1) where are new hires staying in MSP?
2) is senority assigned on day one?
3) when does one bid for base and type?
4) do we get jumpseat privileges right away?
5) is a weekend or two home during training doable/recommended?

Do not publicly discuss the hotels on an internet forum. Thank you!

1. You usually stay somewhere near the mall. Don't really want to say much more.
2. and 3. You get a list of openings and you bid for it within the first couple of days, from what I remember.
4. You get your crew badge the first day, I believe.
5. You get positive space back and forth on the weekends. I highly suggest that you do it, but some people can't handle the distraction of going back and forth.

They told me at the end of my interview that I would be invited to MSP. The actual email with details on my trip to MSP didn't come until I believe 2 days later, asking me which day out of their options was best for me.

~1 month prior to class start date. Get a welcome email that has an ICIMS link to update things as well as an additional email for background check information.

We donít discuss hotels due to security reasons, But at last count there were 5 hotels they can use. It really depends on what phase of training your in.

Traveling Home - I highly stress you donít. Spend your time either in group or individual study. There are stage exams that require 80% to pass. While the training department is willing to help, they will not coddle. They expect you to know the material BEFORE class or training session, so they can teach you how to put it together. Most new-hires are coming from a CFI background with little to no turbine / high-performance knowledge or experience. Your going to have to cover that gap. This is doable, but effort in equals performance out.


Best of luck and welcome to Endeavor.

I highly stress you DO go home. Work/life balance is extremely important. Don't burn yourself out during training. Yes, it's drinking water from a fire hose, but it's manageable. Be diligent about studying and ask lots of good questions. They will teach you what you need to know.

Ground school is pretty easy. Focus on it one step at a time. Before class make sure you have IFR procedures down cold. There also are a couple good Quizlets (trust, but verify) about limitations and memory items once you know your airplane. Don't go too deep into anything they don't tell you to before class, they want to teach you the Endeavor way. It's far easier to learn it correctly the first time. Between ground school and FTD/sims, know the normal procedures, supplemental procedures (specifically the FFOD checks), and profiles before you get in the box.

Be disciplined in your studies, but make sure to make time for family/loved ones and enjoy it. Our training department is good. Oh yeah, "You'll learn that on the line!"

Aft FA says DO NOT go home weekends.
Forward FA says DO go home weekends.
What do I do!?

You can do both, just not every weekend. Maintain work/life balance. If you need a weekend at home to achieve that, do it. But you also need to know when to put the nose to the grindstone, those weekends skip going home.
