I think it was about 5-6 weeks before I got the interview offer...and it was about about 3 weeks after that I got the offer for a class date.

I just got the acceptance letter on thursday for a class on july 11th for a ioe/check airman postion. I interviewed on april 10th so it took a month from the interview to get offered the postion. still trying to acquire information on the contract. I know two other guys who are in the first class that started on the 8th. I am not sure if they have any other classes before the july 11 th class. good luck all

Hey, I guess we got the same class. I was going to PM you but I can't since you don't have enough posts yet. Was wondering where you are coming from and if you have spoke with any one at the company about the class yet? You said there was a class on the 8th...of May or June?

Well I will try to answer both questions. First I am coming from Air Wisconsin where i have been for the last 6 years. My qualifications are approx. 6000 total, 3200 jet (crj) and approx. 1350 jet-121 pic. I know another air willy pilot in the same class. I talked to my friend who is currently in the first new hire class, with the exception of the managment pilots that where hired before the current Northwest Interview board starting the new process. I know the current class has 6 outside pilots (2 former Airwilly guys) and 2 furloughed nwa pilots. He said the class is 8 pilots and they were told that they are running new hire classes every week which seems like alot of pilots before the july 11th class. xtreme i will private message you with my phone number.

As for the interview process it was very laid back. Everyone has a different rotation but my went as follows. First met with two retired nwa pilots and a compass hr person for the panel interview. then went to a 727 sim for standard airwork turns climbs etc. then to a hold for a holding pattern, no apprch.. The sim was non motion non-visual just instrument cross check. Then went and did a 70 or 75 question test that had mostly atp questions and a few questions that I have no idea what they were asking some weird things i never heard of. Hope this helps. 60.41 is the starting pay first year captain not sure about fo i think its appro. 23.00.

Not real crazy about the pay but i will not have to commute to the east coast anymore which is priceless for me.

Kevin

Default Compass FOs?

It sounds like you guys are all being hired on as captains. What are they doing for FOs? What kind of times are people being hired with for FO positions? Are they even hiring FOs yet or are you all getting dual seat qualified ascheck airmen and flying the right seat for now. I haven't heard peep yet about compass hiring any FOs...

I received my interview invitation ten days after submitting my online app.

Late July for the interview.

Anyone have an interview date prior to July?
