Hey Wander, from the sounds of it we took the same in-person assessment. I also received an invite for the round 2 interview tonight. Congrats!

Hey guys,

I was just thinking about this group today and came back to check our convo.

LIsa: Very happy to hear everything is going well for you and you found a place for your 2 cats! How intensive is the course and how are you and your cats adjusting to your new place?

Wanderlust: Yay! I just checked my email and saw the invite too. I am excited and nervous as the same time. Didn't hear anything from anyone for so long I was all prepared to wait for my file to expire and re-apply. LOL

Willis: Hi!!!! So happy that this YVR group is growing!

Congrats wos! Im so excited you and wanderlust are moving forward! I have a feeling they are loading an ifr class but im not positive. I think vfr started septemtember and fss and fic started october. They are starting off more gently than i expected....plus the self study stuff they sent prepared us quite well! Also we are the first fic course before that it was people transfer from fss sites. So we are the first total noobs! Whens the interview? Cant wait to hear all about them! And welcome willis!

Lisa: oh what a relief! starting off gently sounds nice, hah!

WoS: I was beginning to think that as well... that I would just never get an invite.

What do you guys do for your regular jobs?

I just booked mine for Nov 27th. What about you guys?
Trying to remember how I answered the phone interview questions...hah!

The Doodle schedule was empty when I chose my interview time so I went with the 14th - probably means I'll be waiting a long time on a yellow light but I wanted to get it all done and out of the way.

I currently work at an airport in the lower mainland on the av safety team - not a pilot by any means. :)

Mine is on the 29th.

Willis: Maybe they will still give you the green light early instead waiting for all interviews to be completed first?

I was thinking about my answers to the phone interview too. Didn’t write anything down. I hope I will remember the answer to the question they ask me. Honestly, it’s all a blur at the moment. Lol

I’m a flight attendant. How about u wanderlust?

You don't need to go into great detail about your answers from the phone interview...just checking to make sure yore the same person :) I was a customer service agent for a small airline at the south terminal of YVR before this! I loved that job but this is a better opportunity for sure. I was sad to leave tho...having a job I loved made the interview process a little less stressful just because I didn't neeeeeeed a new job....I wanted it but could have continued at the airline quite happily :)

WoS, I didn't write much down. I scribbled a few notes to try and remember my questions... but I have since thrown them away lol. Probably thought it was garbage paper, haha.

Lisa, I am in the same position as you where I don't need a new job as I currently have a good job that I like... so hopefully that will help ease the stress a little bit that not everything is on the line. At the same time, it's been a dream job and a pipe dream... thought about atc years ago but never thought I was "smart enough" to do it.

I am a critical care nurse... I am also working on my PPL currently (as a hobby).

Oh, and I meant to ask Lisa.. what did you wear to your interview? Guys are easy... girls are harder! LOL

I guess business casual....I had grey dress pants a red blouse and a black sweater over it.flat shoes...Lol I don't do heels for anybody :) the ground school stuff that you're doing for your ppl will help you with the pre course stuff for sure! I took lessons years ago, even went solo a few times but I ran out of moolah...sigh hopefully once I vet qualified I'll be able to take that up again. :)

Wanderlust: what do u mean you are not “smart enough”. You are a critical care nurse!!! What are you planning to wear?

It’s awesome both of you fly!!! That background knowledge must help a lot!

Lisa: Did u mention before you were at Pasco?

Yes I was with pasco! :) Sounds like there will be another fic course starting in April or May next year...so definitely don’t write that off! Been kinda fun learning about weather and it’d be cool if some of us ended up working together lol.

Really hoping for a May start over here - I had lost a bit of hope in this application and booked a 1 month trip to India in the spring that I would hate to cancel. I'd cancel it for this opportunity, but it'd be a bit painful on my wallet...

Good luck to everyone on their interviews :D
