I wonder if you could answer a couple of quick questions for me....
First, I understand that Walmart wants everyone to live in Rogers, is there any help with relocating?????
At what point does one need to do this relocation if he could commute although not to easily???
Finally, would one need a friend to walk in the resume' and would it help even if this friend is not of the pilot persuasion???
I'm about an hour and a half up the road from Rogers and I've been thinking that Walmart would be a good place to land, I have a couple of friends who work for the company who have offered to walk in a resume' for me and I think I'll take them up on it.
I know exactly what you mean. I hope it was your idea and not theirs. Either way, you've certainly been more than willing to help others out on this board since I've been visiting. I hope you will let any of us know if we can help you out. Take care,
Yes we do need everyone to be based out of the Rogers area. We do relocate you and your family (if you have one). To my knowledge, they do a really good job of getting all of you belongings here.
Since you are within an hour and a half, this would probably be something you would have to dicuss with management, for we do have standby days, where you need to report if you are called in wihtin one hour. 100% of our pilots live within 30 miles or so of the airport. Some as far as Fayetteville, and parts of southern Missouri.
It is not necessary to have a resume walked in, but with any job interview, I'm sure it doesn't hurt, but I will let you make up you own mind on it. Kinda nice to have someone pulling for you!!!!!
Hope this helps, and let me know if you need anything else!
JF called me too on Monday and left a message. Sounded like she wanted the resume updates no later than Thursday afternoon.
I heard they are expecting a couple CL60s soon for the domestic side so there will be some Lr pilots upgrading, opening up some new hire slots. Let's all keep our fingers crossed.
Rebajetgirl, tell us a little more about your way of life as a Wal-Mart pilot. I read the original post, but haven't been able to get a hold of the ProPilot mag issue covering the department. What is the work schedule like? What's a typical month of flying involve and are there definite days off as in a rotation? I hear the management has come around quite a bit in the last year or so.
Rebajetgirl here....Due to a conflict of interest out of my control I can no longer give information on this thread until further notice. I will on Monday May 13, find another pilot that is willing to frequent the board and answer all of you questions! I still work here and love my job, but put 2 and 2 together and you may be able to figure it out! Good luck to all who interviews, and I will see you soon!!!!
