    More data on this today from FX -- appears this is not limited to ALPA FFD pilots as was implied by the initial notification I posted in the OP.

    FedEx Express to Host Pilot Career Expo
    Mar 10, 2017 • Flight Management

    FedEx Express is excited to host its first ever Pilot Career Expo on Wednesday, May 3, in the FedEx Express Experience Center. The one-day session is designed to highlight what it's like to fly for the industry's premier airline, and to introduce Memphis, our global headquarters for more than four decades.

    The Pilot Career Expo will be purely informational in nature, providing our guests a glimpse into our operations, our core values and an opportunity to learn firsthand why FedEx is such a great place to work.

    The Pilot Career Expo will include presentations by FedEx executives and will feature a host of exhibits surrounding FedEx operations, innovation and our approach to safety. FedEx will offer hub tours to a limited number of attendees the evening before the Expo. Additionally, FedEx representatives will explain pilot hiring requirements and provide an overview of our application and interview processes.

    Space will be limited, and slots given to applicants who have an active profile on fedex.pilotcredentials.com on a first come, first served basis. If they do not have an active profile, applicants should visit fedex.pilotcredentials.com to complete one and review our minimum qualifications. Applicants that already have an active file entered, should revisit and update as needed. FedEx Express will open up registration Monday, March 27, at 8:00 am CDT, on the Pilot Career Expo website.

    Disclaimer
    Participation in the 2017 FedEx Pilot Career Expo is not a guarantee of employment with FedEx Express. Please also note that no interviews will be conducted during the event.

    Are they taking guys with no TPIC? It says 1000 TPIC preferred now. Is that a recent change?

    I wonder if this will be as hard to get into as the UAL/DAL job fairs.

    Signups for the SWA one were a circus, too, due to the volume of folks trying to get tickets.

    My guess is that this one for FX will go the same way.

    TPIC as a "requirement" has been gone for a year or so, but still preferred/recommended.

    Especially considering they have domiciles outside the US.

    Got it!

    I'd make the jump to FDX just to be based in Germany.

    I've been wondering about this for a while...when did Federal Express become Federal Express Express?

    Guess the name change demonstrates their ability to get stuff to you in an incredibly fast amount of time...it's Express^2!

    Since 2000, when several other divisions of the company were all renamed and brought under the "FedEx" umbrella.

    This has been a requirement for longer than most of us on this forum have been professionally flying.

    I'm fairly certain it dates to when mail pilots carried guns.

    Thanks for the heads up. Definitely going to try to make it/combine it with a visit to the inlaws in LIT.

    I think that if I read the original post correctly, it's only for ALPA pilots. Someone correct me, if wrong.

    Does FedEx even really need *any* type of recruitment? Always considered them top of the heap, I would have guessed they get 150 resumes a day.
