I don't work there but know several that do.

My guys tell me they have over 2K apps on file, but how many that are competitive? Don't know.

What I do know is they place a big emphasis on customer service. In addition to building your log entries be ready with stories of how you wowed the customer if you get the interview.

My buds seem to really like it there. Nice equipment, great MX, never ending variety of flying. OTOH, doing pop up charter work and always being in scramble mode is not for everybody.

I'm not familiar with their online application but if it is anything like the one my company uses, try to keep your app current by doing some online activity within each 30 days. The computer tracks current activity as one scoring criteria. Update your times, add a cover letter or recommendation letter. Just do something to keep your file active.

Good luck to you guys...

With 1 for 50 we all should at least get a chance to interview.

I can't do math, thats why I fly , but the odds of my becoming a pilot given the 300 million folks in this country, and the roughly 600,000 pilots is, what, 2/10 of 1% ? Then of those pilots roughly 16% are professional, and of those professionals (assuming they all want to fly for XOJET) 5/100 of 1%. SOOoooo, As a US citizen, I have, roughly, a .00000016 out of 100 chance of becoming a pilot for XOJet. There is a chance !

With the number of applicants XOJET has, what are you guys doing to get noticed? What makes you stand out above the rest?
