Do the new hires get to select/bid or is it random?

You get what you get. It seemed that the “senior” guys in indoc went to train first. The quicker you get off training pay the better.

You will get the list of aircraft openings a week or 2 before class, email your bid in and then the week leading up to class you will get the list of what everyone was awarded based on seniority. We did not get to pick or bid our training dates. This is how it worked last year. The MD and foreign slots are awarded differently.

Oops! I was referring to training post Indoc.

A few guys in my interview group were assigned MD slots before the rest of us got our CJO’s. The day out CJO’s delivered, a separate email went out asking for volunteers to fill two vacancies in HKG.

Not sure what the selection method is for the hand picked MD guys. I had heard that in the past they liked military heavy guys for this. But the ones I know of were not military at all.

I know the company preferred those with previous DC-10/MD11 experience. They also preferred those with KC-10 experience as well. But since those individuals aren’t always available they’ll use others with a preference to those who have previous heavy experience.

I thought they liked “bolter” experience.

They keep changing their mind about what they want. For a year or two it was C-17 and F/A-18 guys because AOA awareness/experience. Now they’ve decided they don’t want that. Guess what - all the new hires I fly with on the MD - from every imaginable background - are all solid. Maybe stop trying to overthink this...

Last year I was told they were putting high time regional jet pilots into the MD. My class halfway reflected that.
