This is weird, I haven't heard anyone getting a call for an interview on this board or FI.com? Must be calling people from before we all heard about them?

It's sorta annoying that few people have heard anything from XOJet. Perhaps they should add some HR people to handle the load better.

I received an electronic response right after I applied..Im in the same boat as everyone else...
Here are some stats from some forum and internet research, for what it's worth............

They interview 1 out of 50 applicants
They hire 1 out of ten interviewed.
and they have over 4000 applicants.

So your saying there's a chance!


80 interviewed out of 4000,
8 Hired?

That doesn't sound right, more like they interview 1 out of 20 applicants and hire 1 out of 5 interviewed. That would be closer to the numbers they are supposed to hire this year.

Hi guys,

First of all, jetjockes's stats are way off. This is what I know from an inside source: the response of applicants following the announcements made at the NBAA exceeded XOJET's expectations. "On file" does not mean, on the back burner. XOJET recommends frequent updates from all applicants to increase visibility to the recruiters. Dormant profiles may be viewed as a lack of interest. XOJET is only hiring ~60 pilots this year but that number will more than double next year and continue for several years. Pilot hiring is done within Flight Operations so additional staff in HR won't help. XOJET is working on improving communication with its applicants but as stated the increased interest following the NBAA convention exceeded expectations.

The salary infromation on this thread is very accurate. Further information will be published soon.

They are going to need lots of pilots. Additionally, most hiring from what I've heard is obviously based on how quick Cessna and Bombardier can deliver their CX's and CL30's. So, I think they take a rather conservative approach to hiring based on their deliveries.

So I just listened to audiocast and Nick said they are adding 100 pilots this year and half of them have already been identified and in process. So did this happen later last year before the announcement or do they just happen not to read the internet boards?
