Last I knew there is no actual pool. You either get a yes or no after your medical/reference checks and typically with that call an option for one or two GS dates. Encore has an actual "pool," in the sense they call you and say you're in but it might be a few months. With the way things are moving along at Jazz, guys are going through the process and in a GS a month after initial contact.

Well I got this email last week:

"Thank you for taking the time to participate in our recruitment process. At this time, you have successfully completed all of the steps in our hiring process and we have placed you in our hiring pool. When we begin to fill our next ground school we will choose our candidates from the pool."

It continues with a bit more but that's the jist of it.. Or is this the same email everyone gets and then shortly thereafter gets a GS date?

Cheers

When I was hired I received a phone call to say I had completed the hiring process and to say that if I was still interested in the job they would put me in a hiring pool. I said yes and she then explained there was a course scheduled for 3 weeks later if I wanted it.

I believe there is a pool, its often just a very shallow one :smt040

Congrats on completing the process, im sure you'll get the call soon!

Just curious if anyone has been given / knows of anyone that has been given a start date out of this pool heading into September here?

Thanks everyone!

My understanding is that interviews and GS are on the slow side right now until the bid is finalized.

From your experiences, how long does it takes after the medical, criminal background and reference check to get the call back?

Has anyone going through the recruitment process heard from Jazz lately?

It's coming up on 3 weeks since my medical and I was expecting a reply sooner, whether good or bad. I figure they're trying to sort out stuff after the latest bid (rather than have forgotten about me) before proceeding with scheduling ground schools?

Have they contacted your references? Tracking down references can often be a cause for a delay. I wouldnt stress, it took me over a month to hear back.

They have contacted 2 of my references more than 2 weeks ago. The 3rd one is really from the same company as another reference and he's overseas. He has had no calls or emails so I figure they're not going to contact him. Anyway, I will be patient, as you suggested and hope for the best!

The coordination between the training department and HR is a difficult one. They may simply be waiting for a course date for you, or to align you with a course that works. I know they try and keep a spectrum of experience levels and demographs in each course. If you haven't heard no.. then I would just grin and bear the wait :wink: I waited almost 3 months from sim eval...

If you use the search function you will find a lot of information, which should still be useful.

The interview is straight forward. You will be asked a few questions to judge how much you know about the company, a few about your experience and then the usual "Tell me about at time" questions. The typical interview advice stands. They aren't trying to trick you.

When I did my interview 9 months ago, I had a management pilot and an HR person do the interview. I imagine it is still done that way.

Good luck and dress well!

Heard today the plan is to hire over 200 pilots by May 2017. Basically two classes a month with 20 pilots per class. Vacancies will be for all bases and positions at that rate.

If you are in the pool or interviewing soon, you won't have to wait long for a course date.

Does the Jazz training department have the capacity to train that amount of new pilots in 5-6 months ?
