You'll come to Memphis, Day one take a test. Day two if you get past day one use to be an SBI, sim ride and personal interview.

Best to get in touch with Emerald Coast Consulting! If you want to work at FedEx, they are the best gouge. Spend the money on the consulting, get some time booked in a sim and search on gouge.

Best of Luck!

If it's anything like it was last time we hired a couple of years ago, it's 3 tests on day one. ( psych eval, cog skills and pilot knowledge). They send you home and call you back a few days later to let you know you passed those test, then schedule day two (SBI, sim and face to face interview.)

I second the Emerald Coast endorsement. Money well spent.

I think the sim ride is going away.

I think it's unanimous. INVESTING in an interview prep by Emerald Coast and if necessary the sim prep with pay off with INTEREST. (Yes I'm using caps)

Never said it was not. Just stating the sim ride is going away so it may not be the same schedule.

For what it's worth, in my First Officer Course (yes, there's one), Billy Mac said the DC-10 sim was going away since the 727 is retired. He said it was expensive to keep the sim operating only to screen new hires for actual hand flying skills.

Don't shoot the messenger if they're still sending new hires to the sim.

Had an internal interviewee on the JS this week. He said about 18 internals (Pros) are eligible. Interviews in late October. Day 1 as you said. Day 2 - SBI and Panel interview. No Sim. Didn't specifically mention the 'call you back for Day 2' angle, but I didn't know enough to clarify.

Because 1 trip on your dime to Memphis just isn't enough… Hoping they will consolidate the event in a single day, or at least trip. Delta and everyone else seem to manage to do it in one trip, so I'd expect what we do to morph into something similar to what Delta does.

That's why I said "if necessary".
