Be prepared to study.

Couple new hires haven't made the cut recently.

How so? Did they fail out of sim training?

Not giving backgrounds.

One during sim, one prior to sim.

“Prior to sim”: does that mean they failed an oral multiple times or are there written tests that weren't passed? Just trying to understand exactly what to expect and where the potential stumbling blocks are. I’m sure you can appreciate the new hires have a vested interest in this so we can see and avoid.

Donít listen to scare tactics. The failure rate at UPS is no more alarming than any other major airline failure rate. The only person that I have specifically heard of that had issues came out of a King Air.
Itís AQP with all the same maneuvers as any other training syllabus that you have experienced. Show up prepared and rested. Practice good CRM with your sim partner in and out of class/sim. Lastly, have and maintain a good attitude. Thatís all you need to succeed. The hiring department does a good job of interviewing more than qualified candidates.

Thank you, Robxjt27! I was starting to feel pretty bummed out and nervous. Not a great foot to start off on! I appreciate your feedback and outlook.

Saying you need to study and saying a couple people havenít made it is now a scare tactic. Wasnít small airplane drivers.

So, moral of the other posts, everyone makes it from all backgrounds as long as you have a good attitude.
