Interview Callback

Post by mahmoudmer » Fri Mar 01, 2019 8:52 pm

Out of curiosity, how long did you guys have to wait before getting a call back for the interview/sim eval?
I know things are kind of hectic right now because of GGN pilots making the move.
I've been waiting for 3 weeks now and still no call.

Thanks!

Send an email to the HR rep who gave you your interview/sim eval information and ask them about the current status of your application.

I actually haven't heard back after applying online. Sorry if my question was confusing. I meant how long did it take for them to contact you after you applied online?

What’s your experience level? There’s a total time experience level they have set into their system, if you’re below that your resume won’t even display in their potential candidates pile until you’ve reach that threshold.

Hey, thanks for your reply.

I have approximately 1100 hours. 400+ multi PIC, SARON/SAMRA Written completed. Group 1 Multi IFR rating.

Do you happen to know what that threshold is?

Thanks again!

You will be contacted since you have their minimums requirements.
Normally it's around 3-4 weeks after applying online. However, since they need to adjust their hiring profile and pool, it might take a bit longer.
They need to hire 150 pilots for 2019 ( total is 350 but 200 are coming from GGN )

That should do it for sure. I’m not sure their current threshold but I know a little while back it was 800.

203 coming from GGN so your wait will be long.
Depending if you’re currently employed and can wait..
Or apply with other regionals IMHO.

With the new agreement signed by Jazz, and the present situation at Westjet/Encore, I would wager Jazz is now the best long-term bet for regionals. The manner by which the GGN pilots will be included into the pilot system is irrelevant, given their seniority based on DOH is locked in. Since everything now, including flow to AC, is seniority based, the very first OTS pilot hired post-MOS4 will hold the exact same seniority, regardless of whether they're hired tomorrow or in October.

seems like with the 203 GGN pilots plus pilots already in the pool that 2019 hiring is wrapped?

I dont think so, I'm sure a bunch of those guys are in the ring at AC too, by the time they all come over I would not be surprised if some don't even make it past their effective dates. Plus with AC hiring more from us now with the new agreement

Before the new agreement people in the pool were receiving their GS call about a month or so after the hiring pool email.
We are still in the pool since December and April GS is already full so things have slowed a bit regarding GS for OTS.
I don't expect us to have a GS before July or August...

From my experience:

I applied in early December, meet all the mins and even have a bunch of the "desirables" (ATPL, Glass cockpit, etc). Nothing... Like everyone has said, you're probably best to look elsewhere this year.

My 2 cents,

From what I heard, Jazz might conduct 2 ground schools each month if necessary. Current swimmers should be called for May or June ground school. And if you haven't recieved any call back within 2 weeks from Jazz after the interview, you might be out of your luck.

Don't forget the GGN guys aren't that much extra people, they need them to staff the aircrafts that are transferred from GGN to JZA. They will need 2 ground schools per months soon enough.

Self explanatory...
As mentioned before, if you’re set on Jazz and can afford the wait, heck go for it. Nobody disputes it is a great outfit to work for.

But you’ll end up at a much better company with faster career progression in the long run than they will. Focus on the long game. Sure they might have “beat you” to the right seat of a Dash 8, but who cares? Patience pays off and when you get the call it’ll be worth it.

Thank you for this! I've notice a lot of that penny wise and pound foolish attitude going on with career progression on here. If I have the luxury of waiting, I will wait!
