gouge

Shaggy,

I interviewed in Dec and am checking this week. Great company and plenty of gouge on this site for the interview help. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll do what I can. You'll be amazed at how relaxing the environment is. Think Situation Action Result format in answering questions. Definitely one person you need to make contact with is Al Spain. He's directly responsible for the decision process. He'll be there all day during the interview answering questions in the "big room". You'll know him from the bow tie.

Jeff G makes great posts about the company and the specifics as well. Do a search for his stuff also.

Best of luck

Congrats!!

Congratulations on the call. I inteviewed on Feb 12 and got the call from Dean on Apr 1 with the good news from the decision board. Now just waiting for stop loss to end so I can separate from the Air Force. Hoping for an Aug class date. If there is anything I can do to help in the process, let me know. I'd be glad to help anyone discover what an awesome company JB is and be glad to help with the interview process. Learn and live the 5 values and learn the company web site (i.e. press releases, business plan, etc.). Awesome interview atmosphere and cool relaxed people. Actually enjoyable, believe it or not.

Thanks!

Thanks, guys!

I appreciate all the good words! I'm really looking forward to the interview. Everyone I've met so far has had nothing but positive words for jetBlue. Hope I get the opportunity to join your team.

Jointops, Trueblue, congrats yourselves! Hope to see you 'round some day. Also hope to hear more good news from others. Jointops, I think I might have a buddy in your class....should know me under this name. Good luck on the check.

Thanks for the help, and good luck to all!

Shaggy-

Best of luck with the interview process. You will be very impressed with this company, even during that rather high stress (self imposed stress, that is) day.

By all means--just be yourself during the interview. I think the interviewers are looking for genuine folks who care about a product and can work with people.

Remember, though...you'll be as much a "manager" as you will be a pilot in the A320!

By the way, during my interview 99% of the folks thought they were being original and wore a blue tie vice a red one...we still looked like clones in any case.

Oh yeah, almost forgot an interesting anecdote: While standing in a group with Lanny McAndrew (the chief pilot) asking questions, one guy started to ask something and another person in the group interrupted and said "EXCUSE ME!...I was the NEXT ONE in line to ask a question..."

Funny thing, but I didn't see that guy at training...

Good luck to all in their interviews.

Darwins theories work in the interview environment as well.

I'm in too

I got the call as well that has me smiling big time. I will see you there on the 17th.

I have been a big JetBlue guy for a while, but never thought I would get the call. Any sites have the latest and greatest on sample questions for the interview? The usual suspects, willflyfor food etc seem to be a little dated.

Tell me this isn't the same Kwijybo that was "on the loose" all over asia .... The dude with the stickers that were pictures of himself .... always wanted to party with that cowboy. Regardless, congrats and let's hope they keep dialing. It sure seems like Kew Gardens will be a crowded place on the 17th!

JB question

Does anyone know who it would be best to address JetBlue recommendation letters to? I am told you have to bring 3 to the interview and thought it would be nice to get these before a call comes. (Wishful thinking!!)

Thanks in advance!!

LOR's

Jake,

Just do the company and address at the top of the letter and a generic "To Whom it May Concern". That's usuaully the safest way to approach those.

The letters can't be more than a year old. You may bring 3 letters, but by the time they get through with those 3 (they'll ask those 3 for more references of folks you've flown with) they'll probably have spoken to 5 or 6 folks. Make sure those people are willing to spend about a half hour on the phone.

They talked to 5 folks about me and they all said it was if they were being interviewed. They don't want the canned, "He's the next Chuck Yeager." They'll ask extreme specifics concerning your integrity and your character. They definitely want people who truly know you and your values. This is the one of they ensure they're getting the type of pilot that will furthur the values of the company in their day to day interaction with fellow employees and passengers.

Best of luck

FYI...I addressed my 3 letters to Ann Rhodes, since she was the person in charge of personnel at the time. Made the letters more personal than "to whom it may concern".

Also might send a CC to Eagleflip. He'll be taking over soon...:D
