Thanks Boss...How do you like it now that you have been working there for awhile? How was the training? I am sure the big part is city codes and airline codes.

Your uniforms did you have to buy them or did they provide some?

I just got another email from them yesterday saying something about fingerprints to be done...which I already did and that I should get an email in 24 hours from hireright. I have not done the medical part yet.

I really want this job and I worry about telling them about my upcoming trip...but we booked and paid for this 18 months ago. I did look into changing the date and I can not since we are under the 75 day mark. I thought that was the case before I called but I wanted to check.

I applied and it took a couple of weeks before I heard anything from them. I am taking the offer today...but when I go in to the medical I have to talk to them because I have our family vacation that we booked and paid for last Feb. and it is coming up...I just wonder how it will work out with them. I am sure they have had to work with something like this before. But I really hope they will work with me on it.

They give you the uniforms 6 shirts and 6 pants, 2 jackets 1 is for spring, 1 is for winter. if you want shorts you have to pay for them yourself and any other items. @ Jfk they do your fingerprints the same day. medical took another week

leudy,
no I do not know...how long did it take for them to call your the medical? I got my offer letter 2 days ago and did the steps to accpet the postion but I still have not heard back about the medical? Boss is the best person on here right now since he/she just started at JFK. That would be the person to ask.

What airport are you looking at working at...that might help to know we might be waiting for the same place.

I applied to JFK but I was told yesterday that my name was shortlisted to call the recruiter if I don't get an answer back but I believe that I passed the medical portion but I haven't received answer

I did not know that they had a shortlist or a long list. I just figured they have cut those they did not want to hire and now that the letters went out that you were on your way to be hired. Just had to pass the medical. I if I don't hear anything I might call them on Friday. I am hoping to hear something this week.

Also if you called once to follow up I would wait until the end of the week to call again. or 1st part of next week. How long did it take for them to reach out to you to set your date for the medical. I am still waiting for that. I have been waiting for that call or email.

was it more than a week. I am just know when I went they said they might have us working by March 21st...so I am guessing they have to get the ball rolling. But then again another one said it coud take 3 to 6 weeks. I am just worried because I have a family thing that I have to go in 60 days.

So I set up my medical and I am working on the on-board stuff...they said something about having a photo taken then too.

Does anyone know or have any advice about me telling them when I meet on Tuesday about our family event that I have to go to in May for 9 days? I am so worried about telling them. I am wondering how they are going to take this and what the policy is for taking time off so soon after starting. This is all paid for and has been for a year. I can not let my family down. I have checked into changing the trip around but there is not luck with that. This is like my dream job and yet I am so worried about losing it it to this.

I dont understnd AA as big of a company as they are they cant let you kno wheather you have the position or not. Put somethng in the job profile or send a rejection notice by email so pple dont sit around like dummies waiting for an answer, I dont get it..

jet they might not be saying no...they might hire so many at a time knowing some are not going to pass training...then doing another round. Or they might have liked you but can only hire so many and are sitting on your info for 90 days to see if they can place you. I would think they would send you a notice of some kind. Maybe try calling your contact again and ask them if you should recive a notice of some kind. That way you know to watch for it or are you on the short list. I would just keep following up. My dealings with HR is wonderful very outgoing and willing to work with you. Sounds like next week I am off to texas for training.

They might have go have your picture taken if they do that takes longer than the Medical Part. It was like 2 hours for the photo Id. It was crazy. They just take your picture and you have to go back and pick up it up.

I got my offer letter over a week ago. We got the medical done and the photo ID they still have not set start date. I am hoping they stick to what they think is the start date. The Id badage is the hardest part and takes the longest. Do you have a start date yet?

I know this has been a very long process...I hope that means they are picking the best. I am with you I am so excited and I can not wait to go to Dallas for training. I am hoping to hear something on Monday. Yes the funny thing is they still say not to give notice to your other job yet. But now it looks like they are only going to give you 1 week notice to give them. I am really hoping we get a firm date on Monday.
