CJO in early December, told to expect training "sometime in the middle of 2018." Hit me up if you have any questions on the interview, and good luck on the deployment. Hopefully it's at least a flying gig and not the dirty dirty CAOC or something worse.

Weíre just now putting people in class from March of last year. A few left the pool but a lot didnít.
and you had a daddy helping you from the inside...

I had a lot of people help me from the inside. I am very lucky and humbled that they helped me. Like I said itís not easy to get hired if I didnít have help who knows if I would have been called by now.

By the way I sent you a PM, months ago asking why you seem to have a chip on your shoulder against me. So now Iíll ask you in public what do you have against me? I donít have a clue who you are yet you seem to know me......

Wow, 3 whole years? The agony......

Between the L-CAL and later UAL pretty sure mine was close to 10 years. Sadly I know guys that are now pressing 13 with job fairs, career counseling reviewed apps, clean records, and crickets.

Although I will admit, if you had a dad on the inside that is a bit of a “wait”. I’ve know a lot of other people with various boxes checked that waited longer than it would have seemed.

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.
Welcome aboard
Motch

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?!
Gives folks hope.

That’s what I’m thinking too......there’s only 2 pilots at UA I have not gotten along with. Unless I made someone mad and never knew it . My dad is long retired so if he has a problem with him he can probably let it go.

If he has a problem with me or my dad he’s welcome to PM me and we’ll talk about it........
