Default How hard is it to get CGN

As a new hire, how hard is it to get CGN? I have dual citizenship in USA and DEU (grew up there, got my high school diploma from Germany, Bachelor's in the USA). Speak both fluently, wonder if FEDEX gives a little more emphasize to fluent speakers and nationals? I always preferred the living in Germany over the USA (The fiancee and me want to leave the USA ASAP, for several reasons, mostly political).

EDIT: I know you'll work as an EXPAT (working under an american contract in a foreign country regardless of citizenship). My dad did that for LH in the USA as an Engineer, so every couple of years you have to go back to your home country (used to be after 6 years go to a different country for 2 years, then come back?), but don't know if it changes anything if you're citizen of both countries.

1. We work on the seniority system here. FedEx will not "give a little more emphasis to fluent speakers..." if there is someone with 1 seniority number in front of you that wants the spot.

2. I suggest you and your fiance hightail it back to Germany...as fast as you can get there. Our nation obviously offends you. I spent most of my adult life training to fight between the Fulda Gap and the Eifel, and was prepared to die to protect not only Americans, but our former adversaries the Germans as well. When you get home, do me a favor and drive over to Belgium, the Netherlands, France, and a host of other places your grandparents raped and pillaged, and visit some of the American cemeteries that dot the continent with many of our finest. I had the honor of serving stationed in your country, and led some fly-bys over some of those same sacred memorials while I was there. When that trip is over you can go on back home and **** yourself. I can tell you that a good percentage of FedEx pilots were military pilots, and most of the rest that weren't are still very patriotic and proud of our country. I don't want you here. If I find out your name I'll do all I can to let everyone else know it. They won't like you either.

Happy Memorial Day.

Wow Albie, a little different from the character you portray at Emerald Coast.... Forgive me if I don’t continue referring potential clients. Thank you for your long and distinguished service.

To the OP, you are American, do whatever the F you want, live where you want to live. That’s called freedom. Just beware of the “grass is greener,” aspect - the Bundesrepublik isn’t without problems. If you’re he’ll bent on Deutschland then Lufthansa should be your primary goal. Visit pprune.org. While FedEx has a CGN domicile I think you are limited to 5 years. Otherwise, working at any US carrier and with a little seniority built up you can live in Germany or wherever and commute back stateside. Obviously there are tax games and big financial issues to consider but a ton of guys do it. At UPS we have a CGN hub and if you could live there or close by you could have a pretty sweet deal (but paying US and German taxes...?). Probably the same for FedEx but there might be restrictions - hopefully someone will chime in with insider info vs. more pointless political dialog. Just note: at UPS, we have 2 or 3 guys born and raised in the CGN area who still choose to live in the US, if that tells you anything.

Good luck and post back here if you come across any corrections to the above or info you think would benefit others.

Edit: being fluent in multiple languages will only be beneficial to your application. Does your lady speak German and have any rights to residency in the EU? If not, more hurdles to jump...

Why not apply for Lufthansa instead? Or DHL? Sounds like you’re eligible re: language and citizenship.

Why? Little whiner wants to move to New Fallujah because of the politics here. He was given good advice. His wokeness won’t get him any privileges at FDX so he was advised to find another route to Jannah.

He did give him good advice in part 1, but telling someone to go F himself is a bit much. I guess I just expect a little more professionalism from Albie due to him being who he is.
