Considering that your initial post was still the only one in the thread, was it really necessary to add an entirely new post instead of just correcting the date on the first one?

No.

Of course, very little of what we do here is necessary. And posting it like this records the fact that his intended date changed.

Besides, how do you expect me to take my next step forward in the rankings if I correct posts rather than adding new ones? --Bob

For the record I was planning on going the 23rd, however with the bad weather forecast, plus with the seats filling up (which is not good when flying standby) I decided to postpone my trip until the 31st since Tuesdays-Thursdays are better to fly on standby and this week is no good with my sis's graduation.

Haven't you ever enjoyed the entire Bob's Log thread? That's just how Bob rolls.

I auditioned yesterday, June 8, and passed the written test. I had previously failed the written test on May 24.

Did they interview you?

Welcome aBored!

Did you get a video interview? We track that data also. --Bob

I don't think they're doing video interviews any more. At least, no one mentioned it as a possibility to my group of passers and I didn't see anyone stay after their first interview to go off for another interview.

They're really subtle about the second audition. They may not say anything at all to to whole group about it, and unless you're keeping track of every one of the auditioners, you may not notice that a couple of them have been asked to stay behind.

Ah. Gotcha. Well I guess I've have to try not to fret too much over the next two weeks about the fact that didn't get a second audition.

At mine, instead of giving them the waiver at the desk, they pointed the auditioners to an AP who was standing by one of the cafeteria cash registers. She made eye contact after asking who sent you there and they basically nodded at each other to confirm that the AP sent him or her there. Did you notice any auditioners lingering around after their interview, or were they all going out the door you came in when they were done with the personal interview?

Even though I shouldn't start waiting for my card until Monday I still do. All I've been getting in the mail lately are credit card offers. Today was Discover sending me balance transfer checks trying to get me to use them.

Before getting my interview, I was chit chatting with the people at my table, trying to appear personable. Once I had my interview, I walked over to say to goodbye and good luck to them, and just left without looking around at anything.

I didn't see if it said that, but it was a plain orange envelope that said Discover on the top left corner and I always make sure to check whats in the envelope in case it has anything I want to shred.

I got a picture of Alec Baldwin from Wintergreen, Inc. His recent commercials are a guilty pleasure of mine....
