Anywhere from two weeks to never.

Now if we assume that your current qualifications are right in the ten ring of their current sweet-spot, and that they're actively interviewing maybe two weeks to two months. But of course nobody is certain just yet what the ten ring looks like post covid, although their diversity campaign might provide a hint. Safe to assume the competitive quals are much greater than minimums.

There are threads in the UAL forum discussing hiring/interview.

Most people who succeed in getting to a major apply to most of them, ie shotgun approach, and take the first job offered. Exception would be if the geography simply won't work you. It's not like the regionals, they pick you you don't pick them.

I find this info extremely useful for applicants so I'll start with my data point.

1501 total time, 1400 TT, 1300 MEL, 500 PIC. Submitted to all majors 3/6/22. Nothing yet but will update.

Someone who got an email recently, what were your hours?

What am I not understanding here?
You started flying ME exclusively when you had 100 hrs? 200? Then upgraded 500 hrs later?
You military?

Yes, is that not uncommon with the UPT T-1 route? Regardless, seems like I still have some work to do.

For mil it depends on airframe.

1500 tactical is probably going to get called soon. Heavies, would normally need more time, but right now I'm guessing they're grabbing any mil they can get.

Trying to predict if and when you'll get a call is tricky these days, as each company has it's own timeline, process, priorities, etc. And these change from month to month. The traditional "hours stats" don't really work anymore, as long as you meet the required company minimums. Things like regional background, military experience are becoming more important than the traditional flight hour metrics.

As an example, on military forums, I'm seeing more and more guys with significant helicopter time getting invites directly to the majors, which wasn't always the case.

My point is, it's harder to crack the code on what these companies are hiring against. The good news is, they are currently hiring in droves. The best you can you do is to put yourself in the best position to get hired by your target companies. I recommend having someone look at your resume and applications, whether it's someone who has gone through the process or looking into a paid service. Take time to assess your history weaknesses and be ready to discuss them or answer them in your application in a way your target company will receive favorably.

But I digress.

To answer your original post:
Applied to 3 majors - received invites from 2 within 1-3 weeks of posting.
7450 Total
7420 Turbine
7330 ME
3600 PIC

These numbers probably don't help your analysis, but I've been anecdotally seeing plenty of folks with your experience getting the call.

Get as many eyes on your resume and apps as you can to make sure you're not missing something. If you're still waiting, attend aviation conferences and talk to recruiting teams.

Keep your apps up to date, and you'll probably get the call if you haven't already.

This may be a different question from what was originally asked, but I am wondering how far out a given carrier is willing to hire/offer? Are they willing to offer a contract two years out? It seems unlikely, but I would imagine that they would like to forecast as much as possible.

It only took about four days from application to phone interview with Spirit for me.
