Default Training dates/new hires

Received the call from the recent DB, very excited. Also received notice that all 2018 dates are filled, and 2019 dates need to still be set. Any issue with waiting over 4 months to go to class? They will contact when the 2019 scheduled is set but wondering if anyone had a 4+month gap from call to training.

Call them back and tell them you want to get on a standby list! You are ready right now!

Iíll echo what most people will tell you, opt in for an earlier class. I was scheduled for class initially and got bumped up to a new class almost a whole month earlier than my original date. All said and done, my originally scheduled class date was around four months after my DB, but my new class date cut it back closer to three months. Good luck!!

If you opt for an earlier class, what kind of notice do you normally get in case a slot opens up? I ask because if someone has a potential Jan class, they probably won't be turning in their notice until 2 weeks or so prior if they are with another airline. Retired military would not be an issue.

I don't think there's any set amount of notice you'd get, but there is no sense of obligation for you to take a class if it's offered with too short of notice. They get it. But if a spot opens up next week due to a last minute self-eject (recruiting team term for someone who is offered a class date and then opts out for other opportunities) and you're not able to take it, they'll just go on to the next person. No harm no foul.


Keep this in mind regarding how quickly you can be in class: to be eligible for profit sharing, you must be an employee on Jan 1. If you start Jan 2 you'll be waiting a full year just to be eligible...

Crazy how much of a difference a day or two makes. A buddy of mine interviewed two days before me and had the same decision board. He got the 12/4 class, I got the "no classes till 2019" email.

So I gather anyone who interviewed in August onwards is probably looking at 2019 unless someone self-ejects.

Sorry to hear that. Your buddy probably got one of the last spots in that class and there's only 1 class planned for December. Make sure you volunteer as a stand by.

I should have mentioned that the link that came allowed for you to list standby, and then give and option for required 2 week notice or no notice required. I opted yes to standby with 2 week notice requirement. The second part where you pick a class date was empty and will be resent when dates open in 2019. Thanks for responding!
