Jazz Pilot Pool

#1 Post by Piloteyes » Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:26 pm

I recently received an email from Jazz stating that I had successfully completed all the steps in the hiring process and I am being placed in a hiring pool.

Does anyone know a timeline as to when they start putting people in Ground schools or how long it typically takes for them to give you a date?
How many people would typically be in a pool like this and what is their selection process like, as i haven't heard of this in a long time.

I know the hiring has slowed down a lot at jazz, are they still interviewing people and adding them to the pool?

Any information is appreciated!!!

We probably won’t start hiring again until mainline starts their hiring again in the fall. It’s all a trickle down effect. We’re pretty overstaffed on the pilot side of things right now so expect to wait a few months at least.

We continue to hire 12-16 a month, with courses planned each month into December. Things certainly aren't moving at the pace they have been, but it hasn't stopped.

From my understanding (which could always be incorrect) there will not be a July GS and possibly no Aug GS for Jazz coming up. Hiring will start again in the fall.

I heard Jazz offered LOAs to the whole pilot group to fly at Voyageur. So I'd imagine they're a bit overstocked or expecting a reduction in flying.

We are over stocked as compared to last year. Last summer was rough for the company with so many cancellations so this year they are "well over stocked". We'll see what happens with the LOA's........possibly see LBW and RTB's instead? Next couple months over summer will be interesting

I know, I feel you. That's also a hard maybe too. They told me earliest GS is September and 1 per month through until December. We could be waiting 6 months, I wonder how they select out out of the pool?

When did you receive the email ?

Yeah that's what they told me too. SO. LAME. I got my email June 4th. How about you? Also I guy a worked with is doing his sim soon... are they just gonna keep beefing up the pool? I think they pull from pool based on flight ops requirements, our individual "pool seniority" and other factors.

LOAs are being offered for captains and first officers to go fly with Voyageur while we’re overstaffed for the next 6 months or so.

As far as hiring from the pool, generally they’ll call existing ALPA members first, and when those are dried up start calling everyone else.

As for it being “SO LAME” how about show some gratitude and be humble about the fact that they even placed you in the pool in the first place?

With a sense of entitlement that strong they’ll easily find a way to wash you out of training, best to check it at the door.

This is true, I have a few friends who got PFOd or "apply again in 6 months" who all have well over what previous navajo 700TT guys had. I think thats the frustrating part, but again its all about timing and at least you got into the POOL.

I've heard rumblings that they may or may not hold a july GS.....they are waffling. But 100% there will be September. (or as good as my guess is)

Anyone know whats going on with hiring at Jazz? Any idea if it will pick up again in the Fall?

What's the deal with the flow to AC, is it still happening? Heard last AC ground school was mostly people from Encore and other companies and nobody from Jazz.
Everyone is saying go to Encore.....

Don't just go to Encore if you think that it's a 'quick' route into AC. 1.) I'm sure that the Encore recruiters will smell that a mile away; and 2.) What if AC doesn't interview or hire you - will you still be happy at Encore?

7) right now i know for a fact from friends at jazz upgrades to the classic are now 2 years min. Q4 3-4. And Crj 3-5. 

Actually no.
While i agree with most of your points above mentioned , this is completely out of line.
With a little over 2.5 years at jazz not only am i able to hold captain on any equipment at any base . But i would hold it with plenty below me.

Last week i flew with 1 dh8 captains both just 1 year in the company.

So i dont know where you get those numbers from.

Here are a few things I know for a fact....

1) Applying now because flow is good does not guarantee it will still be good by the time your number comes up;

2) Not applying now because the flow is bad does not guarantee you won't bang your head against the wall a year or so later cause you feel you missed the boat;

3) Ignore everything you hear/read that comes from a friend of a friend of a friend.

6) Jazz is a contract company for AC. They could take work away tomorrow and the place gets shut down.
Not true. Jazz has a CPA with AC til at least 2025

Does getting in the pool come with a seniority number?
