Thatís a good question. I was selected for an August interview. I was told by so called industry hiring experts I had no chance at FDX. And yet they are the only airline to contact me so far. I have a corporate background with 6500tt, intl experience, safety MGR, and standards captain.

Why did they say you had no chance?

FedEx has hired a lot of corporate folks. Good luck!

I tried to update the references in my application and couldn't find the tab. I emailed Pilot Credentials and they said FedEx recently removed the references section in the application so there is no longer a way to enter that information.

I obviously have no idea what goes on behind the scenes, but on the surface it definitely seems they're moving further away from pilot input on new hires.

The references tab has been removed from Pilot Credentials. I emailed them to ask why and they said FedEx has removed references from their applications.

Seems like theyíre really pushing to eliminate almost all pilot input on hiring.

After completing all the blocks and having all green x's on the summary page, my pilot credentials profile still says incomplete. Has anyone else ran into this? Thanks

No, but there is a support email under the contact page if you have any issues.

Is there much of a chance to be selected for a second interview? I know they say you can be reconsidered after 12 months but how often does it happen? I assume you probably need a fairly major change in your resume to get selected again?
