Discussion in 'Interview Experiences' started by Shamrok, Sep 11, 2007.
They have been aware of it when I was in new hire training two years ago.
The Best Western SUCKS!
Congrats on everything going well..Were you assigned a base yet? Any ideas where new hires are getting assigned?
Thanks, and I start training on Sept 24th. As far as where they are basing new hires, I would say where ever they need you at first and eventually at a base of your preference if there is room at that particular base. According to some of the Colgan pilots they seem to concur that you'll get the base you want with time and just excercise patience.
Congrats again! See you there
Business Casual dress is fine. Bring a laptop not to class, but for your room. Make sure you have a flight case or a big book bag because you will get alot of manuels for class and you can not carry them in your arms, I bought a flight case and started filling it up. Houston is much better than Manassas and Manassas is better than Miami (in the hood.)
If you get Vic for your instructor count how many times he says "umm, yeah, ok."
Ha ha!!! I have to laugh at this thread!!! No bugs or rats in my room BUT I am SOOOOO sick of the F'n drunk truckers and their comments as I come and go from my room!!!! This one guy who was in the room next door the first week would run outside his room EVERY time I'd come or go and say stuff like "hey baby! You going swimming right now? I'd like to watch you swim!" OMG!!!! I thought I was rid of him but 2 days ago he appears in the room across the way! He asked me yesterday if I want a beer and to spend alittle time with him! Oh BARF!!!!!!!!!!
I am so glad tomorrow is our last day here! Off to Orlando on Saturday and we start sim on Sunday!!!!
Pat, good luck with the rest of the Sabb class and hope to run into ya some time!!!
Hey good job finishing up ground school! It will be cool to see some new faces on the Beech. Good luck in the sim!
Congrats on finishing ground and getting out of here asap! I envy you for not having to spend another week here and putting up with the bs from some of your neighbors. The Saab is a challenge but I think I have it figured out. Just looking forward to the sim. Enjoy the sun down there in Orlando. I am going to Houston with Tim ( my roomate and sim partner) on Oct. 20th. As you know he lives there and should be nice to have a local to show me the area. Hopefully I'll run into somewhere down the line also. Good job again at ground and have fun in the sim! PS. Say hi to Mike Fanzen and Jason for me.
Hey Sham- who is teaching Saab ground?
Ed Yarid, he's a great guy and instructor as well.
Ed is awesome. He knows every question that students will ask. He's heard them all.
sharing rooms, bed bugs, rats, truckers harassing you. why do you put up with this?
Because you get to fly airplanes for less money then the maid who cleans those rooms makes. lollolololololol haha imo kewl
man, I don't know if I should feel stupid or not, but those random 2 second questions would have gotten me pretty hard... I don't know any Oscar winners, I'm not a sports fan or anything either.. I would have known the VP and maybe like 1 or 2 more. I guess that is not a good sign.
What was your answer for the 'why you over other higher time applicants?'
also, what kind weather stuff gets asked? few tough questions you can remember out of there?
who cares what they ask, you should cancel the interview cause they make you share rooms.
Does Colgan allow you to pick your base, and if so how likely is it to get based in NYC?
They give you a bid sheet in training and you select the bases in order you would like them. In order of 1-24 or something, but it doesnt matter, they will put you were they need you and down the road you should be able to attain your base of choice. If you want LGA I would say you have a very good shot at getting it. If you live there then you would be all set otherwise it's expensive to live close to LGA. Sounds like you live there which is good. Good luck.
huh, why should I cancel the interview because they share rooms?
It CAN be (if you have two small children at home). Depends on your perspective....
(I'm looking forward to not having my two-year-old wake me in the middle of the night to go potty, or having my six-year-old wake me as he's trying to "sneak" into my bed in the middle of the night. That kid can't sneak anywhere!)
