Thumbs up UPS Hiring Update

This week's April 18th class has pushed the UPS pilot roster to over 2,600 pilots. The most junior captain on the property today is number 1,631, a 747 captain based in Louisville and a July 1995 new-hire. Latest vacancy bid results had the most-junior captains going to the DC8 (but senior to the 747 junior man).

The next two class dates are May 16th ("at least" 11 pilots) and June 13th ("at least" 17). The classes are currently in the process of being filled.

The most recent pilot vacancy bid left some F/O slots open, so a good % will be going straight to that seat-- including the 767 international domicile.

There are currently 80 in the hiring pool. All successful interviewees go into the pool now. Candidates are ranked, and when filling classes UPS pulls pilots out based on their interview score. It's a competitive pool.

As of the April 18th class, 142 pilots have been hired since November. On track for 300 total hires in 2005, and an equal amount or greater in 2006 (my own prediction).

Internal UPS referrals are highly regarded, as everyone getting hired right now has one.

Smile Update to pool

Talked to a guy in HR today (does the interviews w/Paige), he said about 40 pilots left in the pool.

That's good news. Maybe some of those near the pool's bottom will now be closer to class dates...

I see they sent out letters to people for a medical date. But since my mailman is not good at all, what happens if I never get the letter because he stuck in the wrong mail box like he has done to me in the past, and I get it weeks later??

Default Letters?

Hey guys!

I was just wondering where you heard that letters were being sent out for medicals? I just got in the pool and this is the first that I have heard of this. Also, does anyone have any inside info as to if there might be more than one class in May and one in June? I'm hoping that they start to call some of us poolies.

Good luck to all!

Default UPS poolies getting out

I just heard that there is a good chance that UPS has stopped interviewing and is now pulling people right out of the pool.

Has anybody heard the same??
