For the record...that almost cost you your job as well.

Anyone reading this, it is not the way to go about it. Let them do their job.

I sent you a PM. But for the record I never talked to them after I interviewed unless I was contacted.

It is what you make of it. If you live in BOS or JFK then quality of life can be amazing. Live in FLL? Pray that you get the A320 as a new hire and you could transfer to FLL within a year. MCO? Pray you get the 190 and you might be able to get there in a year. Double commuting from some small city and you'll probably hate life. Pay/benefits aren't on the same level as DAL/AA/UAL, but I think we're heading in the right direction. Good luck!

About two hours. JB had a PDF attachment that wanted driver's record (must be notarized), PRIA from FAA, prior employer, and drug and alcohol testing. I sent this back via Fedex overnight so I could track it.

Four hours later we got an electronic link to a third party that wanted 10 yr residence history, employment history, fingerprint release (same one you signed at HQ ironically), a document that verified you were attesting you were not a felon.

However, the link did not work. There was an error message and customer service number so I called it. They sent me PDFs and I emailed them back, starting the checks immediately. Members of my group had continuous problems with the link. I believe some opted to give the info over the phone and others did what I did, albeit they were delayed about a week.

I will tell you this though - I'm not a fan of faxing or emailing attachments with all the personal info. It's an identity theft kit - name, residency, SS#, DOB, etc. Very easy to search someone's email for "SS#" and steal this data. They also "lost" the email twice (the third party). So I transmitted this data three times. I then signed up for "Life Lock" because I'm concerned about a data breach. The form is also extremely small so you have to write in about 8 point font to get everything in there.

$2500/mo until you finish sim training, then 70hrs/mo until finished with IOE.
