any news for the waiting pilots?
Got the pool mail mid Jan. I haven't received anything besides 2 email saying uncertain about GS. and no one called too... :?
People are still in the pool from mid-december pool email. Don't expect news before mid-march for May GS if there is one.

well I don't really know anyone around here but I would have appreciated an answer.

Thank you anyways.

I would like to think no one knows...

What about GS schedule? If you could give some info on that that'd be great!

Perhaps you didn't get a reply because...people.don't.know.

Management and HR have their ways at any company and staff are not generally privy to that information, and most management wouldn't go plastering that information all over a random forum. Any information you would get from staff is likely just a guess anyway. It's been said in other threads already in the Jazz forum that they will have probably one a month all year.

An unprecedented number of vacancies on this bid. Expect YVR Q400 for the next many classes to come.

150 vacancies on this bid, I expect they will be running 20pilots per GS until Dec 2019. There might even be the possibility of two GS a month come summer. This again will all be predicated on the hiring AC does over the summer. If AC takes a break over the summer like they tend to, I'd expect only 1 GS a month. OTS hiring will remain high for every GS IMO. YVR Q400 has 70+ vacancies on its FO roster. Jan 2019 Captains means anyone with ATPL basically could hold a Captain position at Jazz in YUL or YYZ.

I expect the 2019-02 (Aug bid) to be a course correction after they see what the AC hiring cycle is like. I also noticed that the bid did not include the 8 new CA positions that were supposed to be added to YYC DH8 in Oct/Nov. So shows that they are really taking a look now at who has an application in at AC and who does not (ie lifers at Jazz like myself). So hopefully with the next few bids things will finally be shaken out and we can see some stability. Thankfully on this bid there were not many people who were "forcibly" reduced and had to move bases (YVR DH8 reduction but it seems everyone was able to move to the Q and RJ and there were still left over spots for new Captains to join the lists)

Sounds like we aren't planning a hiring break over the summer at AC. In fact, a course every 2 weeks of around 40 over the summer has been discussed.

Not so this summer. They're planning 30-40 every three weeks until June, then 40+ every two weeks. Or so they say...

I suspect Jazz won't slow down either.

Looks like Jazz will be running at least a course a month for the rest of the year.

Fantastic news! I would love to see Jazz back at the 2 GS/mth rate! The more movement the better!

Hello boys and girls!
For those of you who were called for a April/May GS, when were you placed into the hiring pool?
Thank you and happy flying!

I haven't received anything so far. last email was on mid Feb saying ground school is full for April and nothing planned afterwards.

they can at least send an email or smth.

Cause duration of this wait is causing people to move on. waiting without what's going to happen is pretty hard.

Did anyone try to send an email to them to ask? cause I have 2 more friends gave up and accepted offer from porter and encore

If you haven’t heard anything, that probably means they have nothing to tell you. Rather than asking over and over on a forum, why don’t you email them yourself? You got an email back in Feb saying they don’t have plans set up beyond the already full G/S. That’s already more than most employers nowadays ever do. If you have other offers, make the decision whether to accept those or wait.

well somebody is in a bad mood.

I am just asking if anyone has any information like the guy before me.
if you dont have any information you can just shut up and wait like others or you can ask... like I did.

and if you dont have any information
you dont have to be rude or anything.

the point of this forum is to discuss and share information. if you dont understand that you may leave this discussion.

cause people after me just like before me will ask this question again and again and again.

sorry eh.

Not at all intending to be rude. Sorry if it came off that way. All I’m trying to say to you is that I think it would be far more productive for you to simply ask Jazz yourself. Anything you see on a forum is merely anecdotal, it’s generally better to hear it right from the source. From my little bit of interaction with Jazz HR years ago, they are very good about responding if you ask.

I agree on this. Don't be scared to email them if you have any questions. They won't hate you just because you email them for an update. From what I heard, they are now filling the second ground school in April. If you have been waiting for long time in the pool, I will definitely give them a shout.

I have overreacted I think. I would like to apologize as well.

Waiting long time and not getting any info is pretty bad.

Reason I asked here is I have already emailed them a while ago and they said they dont have a plan yet. I agree with you guys but I dont think that would be smart to send an email every month or so. So this is why I am here.

once again sorry my reaction.

Man, I think Jazz is filling their pool candidate list as much as they can with what reason? Who knows? There’s people here in the pool since nov/dec and still no call and you were pooled in feb. How many pilots are there in the pool right now? Interesting year for sure. Cheers and a good year to all.
