From FedEx IT:

“We’ve released an update to Pilot Careers that resolves the following issues:
The display of Flight Hours on the Review tab has been corrected so that the hours and sorties display with the applicable aircraft.
Corrected the issue with Professional Training, in which the required fields were not showing as “required”, preventing the completion of that section.
Corrected the issue with Flight Hours and Certifications tabs preventing the completion of these sections for some users.
Password reset emails had been prevented from being sent to users with @me.com, @mac.com, or @icloud.com email addresses.This has been corrected.
Improvements to the Residence History and Employment History are in the works and we’ll let you know as soon as those changes are released.

Since we launched Pilot Careers, we’ve received a few frequently asked questions. These answers might help as you work on creating and updating your profile:

Q1. Is my profile updated when I select Save & Continue? Or do I have to select Submit?
A1. Your answers are saved when you select Save & Continue on each page. However, selecting Submit is the only way to complete your profile and signify to the recruitment team that your profile has been updated.

Q2. I see that some of my resume shows in the Completed Applications, but that doesn’t include all of my flight information. Do I need to update this as well?
A2. No. All information required by FedEx Express Pilot Recruitment is in your profile. You do not need to update the Completed Applications.

Q3. My account is locked. What do I do?
A3. Please send an email to [email protected] indicating that your account is locked.

Q4. When I type in my job description (or reason for leaving), I can enter a few sentences, but when I go to the Review page, my entry is cut off. Do I need to enter less information?
A4. Everything that you enter in the job description is visible to the recruiters. You do not need to limit the characters for your entry.

Q5. I uploaded the wrong resume. What do I do?
A5. You may upload a new resume. Only the selected resume (listed under “Uploaded Files” on the Resume tab) is submitted with your profile.

Q6. How can I use one of the other resumes that I uploaded?
A6. Use the following steps to select the resume you wish to submit:
On the Resume section, select the “Select from Previously Uploaded Resumes”.
You will see a list of the resumes you have uploaded. Select “Upload” next to the resume you wish to submit.
Return to the initial resume page with the selected resume listed under “Uploaded Files”.
Select “Save and Continue”.
Q7. Do I need to keep my profile updated in two places?
A7. No. Pilot Careers is the source for pilot job seekers to apply for a pilot career at FedEx Express. It will also be the source for current FedEx Express crewmembers to submit a personal endorsement (PE) on a candidate once that functionality is released.

For the best experience, we recommend using Chrome, Firefox or Safari in order to update your profile.

You can always reach out to us at [email protected].

Thank you for your continued interest in FedEx Express!

Hello all, I'm finding the site is slowly getting better, I hope it is for others also. Thanks to Pinkdog for posting that email, I'm not sure why I didn't get that one but it helped explain a few things. FYI, I am definitely having better success using Chrome.

Does anyone know if there is any truth to FedEx pulling apps once a quarter (1 Oct, 1 Jan...etc for example) or is that just straight rumor?

For PEs, yes Iíve heard that from a former fleet Capt and very reliable source

For educational history, are they looking for just degree-awarding programs? What about formal military pilot training and/or professional development (i.e., SOS for Air Force)?

And while I'm asking questions from the outside looking in, does FedEx have any sort of look at recommendations other than the PE? The guys I know at Purple are relatively new and probably not in a position to expend one on me. Is there any sort of credit for external recs, and if so, how do they get to the company? (I'm not seeing either on the application web page)

Purple did away with internals and other recommendations when they rolled out the 10yr PE program two years ago. It has not had great results. I know a UPS pilot that had 2 of the 10yr PEs expended on him and he never got the call until 6 months after starting at brown. The lawyers have taken over but pilots are upset that their voice and recommendations arenít being heard. I know of several interested in bringing the Union in on this to look at the stats.

I know I saw it somewhere on APC before but I couldn't find it, but does anyone know if PE's carried forward to the new career site? I heard they had but never got a confirmation that mine still applied to the new site.

Under the "civilian training" tab, is it really necessary to list your PPL, INST, COMM certifications? You list your ATP at the top with the date and failures or lack of. I don't see a reason or benefit to spend time on listing those all out. Thoughts?

Question: Does FedEx (or any other major) care about a failed CFII ride 20 years ago, at the age of 23. Successful corporate and Part 91 career since to include LOR's from supervisors and others. No failed checkrides at "real jobs" ever. No accidents/incidents.
