Have I just got an Air Canada PFO???

#1 Post by DHC7DVR » Wed Jul 11, 2018 12:51 pm

Hey Guys,

I did the interview process back in April, and got an email back a few weeks ago that has had me scratching my head to be honest. Not sure of the exact wording, but it goes something like...

“Dear Awesome Dude, thankyou for interviewing with us...blah blah blah.....we are not hiring at the moment, but will be again in the fall of this year, and throughout 2019. However, if you haven’t heard back from us within 12 months, then please assume your application was unsuccessful....blah blah blah...etc..”

My question is.....while that certainly is no offer of employment in any way, is it actually a PFO??? I fully understand that there maybe perfectly good legal reasons as to the ‘flowery language’, and I’m certainly under no illusion that I’m off to ground school at anytime in the foreseeable future, but should I just put AC to one side and get on with enjoying my life as it is now?

Cheers!

I think it's a noncommittal reply... They don't want to leave guys hanging in a pool again... but they wanted to get back to you in the time frame they saif they would when you interviewed...

Take it for what it is, you're in the mix of things... Hope for an offer when groundschools start up again, or reapply/move on with your life if you don't hear back.

But I wouldn't turn down any opportunities waiting on an unsure thing.

How can you be unsure of the exact wording? It's an email.

Not a PFO, yet. It’s like they have your application status inactive, but it’s not successful \ unsuccessful yet. They just stopped doing GSs for a few months. It’ll start up again. Just hang tight, but don’t quit your day job. If you are lucky (like a bunch of others I know that are waiting as well), they will pick it back up where you left off in the fall. If they take too long, after 12 months, just reapply and try again, no biggie.

Good luck.

My PFO ended with something like “we wish you the best of luck with your aviation career” :mrgreen: so I would say they’re just leaving you to guess for now and you can probably reapply.

If your resume reads like you subject line then likely yes.

From "you" reply, looks like you got one/should've.
