Could anyone who has recently received a CJO please advise on how long a wait to start training? I have an interview coming up in a few weeks and a deployment several months from now. I realize Iím putting the cart before the horse, but would like to know for planning sake just in case. Thanks in advance.

Friend of mine just received a CJO this week and was told to expect a Fall class date. So, with that being said I think you should be fine in regards to the deployment.

Is your friend applying anywhere else?
Seems to me, telling someone to expect a class in 6 months is outrageous.
Wonder how many people who end up in the pool for 6+ months last and come to work for us?
How many start at Delta, American, FedEx, UPS or SouthWest?

Yes, we should interview and have a pool.
No, the process shouldn't take 9 months or longer.. in the current environment.

Just my opinion.

PS> I will add that 6+ months might be ok for a Military guy who will be separating in the future. But for (almost) anyone else?!

I have multiple well qualified freinds that can’t even get one call let alone multiple. So for a lucky few they have a choice to make, for most of the others they will be very happy with a fall class date.

I had my app in since 2010 with everyone, didn’t get a call tell 2013 from United. Waited 2 months in the pool and started class. Its not as easy to get hired as some people think it is, even in this environment.

We’re just now putting people in class from March of last year. A few left the pool but a lot didn’t.

He's got an interview at DL as well, although UAL is his first choice. He's going to do the DL interview and see how it goes, then make a decision when the time comes. He's fortunate to have a very good paying job overseas right now so he's not bothered by an extra month or two wait. Both DL and AA have had 6-12 month waits for class in the past year or two, so it's all a bit of luck and timing.

Delta was in the same situation two years ago that weíre in now. They were adding sims and doing a lot of construction on the training center -pushing back class dates 6-9 months.
Bottom line is you canít take it personally
