Hey everyone

I am excited to say the least that FINALLY I have a 1 on 1 interview with DL on Friday at PBI. I am not sure if anyone on here works for DL at PBI but I was wondering the process? Like do they usually tell you that day if you where hired for the position or does it tske a while? What kind of staffing needs they are looking for? And since its a Customer Service Ready Reserve position I have hear its on call kind of, but I have also heard depending on the station some ready reserves get a set schedule of like 20-25 hours a week. Internally do openings for PT or FT come open alot around the system? Any info or insight you guys have is great!

Surely things may have changed since I worked for them but i doubt it. Like most other positions in the industry, it is your job to loose as far as getting a 1 on 1. You can consider yourself hired unless HR sees something they don't like or the interviewer sees something he/she doesn't like.

With me, I was notified the same day if I was hired or not and was given a class date that day as well. I recieved some stuff in the mail too the very next week. You'll do your weight lifting and the other stuff. We also did the urine test and hearing test same day.

Not sure exactly how ready reserve works, sorry. I wasfull time. As far as transfers to part time and full time, they come open every now and then. You'll see it on the bidding schedule.

One thing to be sure though is for flight benefits you get everything just like if you were a regular employee of DL. (which is great if you travel a lot)

That makes me feel pretty good! You always wonder in the back of your mind how many people they are looking to hire at that paticular time....

Oh yeah... Most definetly.

Also I know it say you are allowed to work 300-999 hours in a year, but being that we are going into March and have only 9 months left in 2010, will that allow me to work more on a weekly basis since I would be getting a late start for the year. Does anyone know if your allowed to do shift trades or pick up co-workers shifts as a Ready Reserve?

When I hired on at ORD in '71, the guy at ORD gave me a small interview (oddly enough, he was later one of my station managers), then I went to ATL for a physical and another interview, like on a Wednesday and on Friday they called and said I was hired and I was to start a one week orientation class at ORD the following Monday. Pretty fast process, actually.


GOOD LUCK!!!

It depends on the station, if they are short of course they'll give you more hours. I started late last year and because of that I could pick extra hours for the holiday season, etc.

You can do shift trades only with Ready Reserve. (kind of sucks lol)

Do shift trades take away from your 300-999 hours you are allowed to work? I am wondering if the "300-999" is for scheduled hours only or would shift trades eat away at that number if you picked up co workers shifts?

Yeah the shift trades would count toward the 999 limit.
