There aren't many openings that are going to the street right now. And when they are, FedEx can be very selective and chose the cream of the crop. I have heard that there is a strong emphasis on an avionics background lately. Wrench turners and screw removers are a dime a dozen. Someone who can decipher a wiring diagram and apply proper troubleshooting procedures is much more valuable. I know that I want someone who can think intelligently and react appropriately on my ramp.
