Would those who received a May 6th ground school mind sharing when they interviewed?

May 20th is what we're planning for. Summer planning has a gs every 2 weeks. Expect mostly express candidates for the next few gs.

Sorry to hear that MP. I hit 6 weeks recently and I even checked my junk mail for the PFO. Don’t see anything. Starting to feel like this isn’t gonna workout in my favour. :?

Good luck to everyone else.

What's the consensus on the PFO email? Are you completely SOL? Do they just put you in a pool and pick from as necessary? Allowed to re-apply? Anybody know anyone that got a PFO and then successfully got hired later on?

Definitely reapply. People get on 2nd, 3rd attempt. Don't lose the enthusiasm although it's hard not to. From someone not at AC.

I know of a few individuals who interviewed mid march, received calls last week of April for a May 20th GS. Just in terms of where they might be for interview vs ground school offering time.

speedah, were they OTS or PML? I’ve herd they are running lots of PML with a few OTS fill-ins currently.

I interviewed the last week of February. References checked last week of March. No email, no call, nothing. Any idea if I’ve been lost in the shuffle or is this not unheard of?

Okay so GGN finally flowing to mainline...
Do you know if GS will continue during summer or like Jazz they’ll resume in September ?
