  1. Just wanted to give another shout out to Jon at Trident. I happened to catch him at just the right time between flights yesterday (Saturday) and he dropped what he was doing to help out. This was a cold call that he wasn’t expecting. He got us what we needed and fast. Thanks again for your help!
  2. Also watch on Freedom, when they purchased our loan they switched it from a fixed to 5 year fixed. I screamed up and down, they swear it’s “just a technicality” and that after 5 years the rate will remain fixed. I do not believe them. Luckily we are putting the place on the market soon so I will hopefully not have to press to test. Freedom Mortgage is pretty terrible if you ask me.
  3. Yeah man my situation is similar to your Navy buddy. School then staff now I’m seeking employment with no recency. I’ve not heard any first hand stories of any transition issues but have heard about friends of friends that were denied employment due to regional employment. Just trying to find truth data. Not really a good question for HR.
  4. Can anyone shed some light on which regionals/pilot union may preclude someone from terminating regional employment and transitioning to another large carrier? Example, is there truth that if hired by SkyWest you cannot jump ship for United before 5 years of employment?
  5. This seems to be the best place for this question (but not specific to the OP subject). I am transitioning to the reserves after 17 years AD. I have chronic lower back pain (waiver), shoulder pain (waiver), a partially torn meniscus, and plantar fasciitis all in my record. I additionally have sleep issues and some hearing loss/ringing in my ears, not in my record. In TAP the VA rep persuaded me to delay applying for disability benefits until I separate from the reserves in order to ensure AFRC will in fact bring me on. Has anyone navigated these waters? Looking for some life advice here.
  6. Finally got my tentative approval this week. Well over 7 months for the process to work itself out. Likely because my DOS isn’t until Jan ‘20. 11M asking for a little less than 6 months off, approval recommendations all the way up. The end is in sight!
  7. Moose...I’m following along too. When I left for vacay last week mine had been sitting with AFPC PC Separations (after O-6) for 5 days. Nothing added from the O-6 to the form on my voluntary sep app. I tried to care but could only think about cold drinks and Cabo beaches at the time. Hopefully when I get in tomorrow it’ll have moved. Likely not though. Edited to add: I applied mid-Jan ‘19 for a mid-Jan ‘20 sep. No rush yet. Hopefully AFPC doesn’t push it out much further though.
  8. Ugh. Sorry your DOS is getting effed with. That sucks. My date was 22 Apr not March. My bad. Thanks for reaching out and passing the words.
  9. It seems like they’re moving a stack together. My app has been sitting since 22 Mar with PC as well.
  10. Copy all, thanks. Not trying to game it. Just have a short window of opportunity, that if called, interviewed, and offered I could slip my FTU date. If that window closes just looking to move my availability date to FTU grad date plus about 6 months.
  11. I’m in the same boat. That’s where my app is sitting. Been there since early Feb. They did upload a document last week that resembles an eSSS that shows the different stops within AFPC. I can’t tell if it’s current and accurate data or just a canned document waiting to be updated at each stop. Unfortunately I don’t know the answer to your question. I do believe it has at least one more stop at SAF/PC for final approval or denial.
  12. Appreciate the words. I should've been a little more clear. The unit CC is urging me to apply sooner than later to the airlines and will shift FTU around accordingly. I think the most important question that I have is if I do not get an interview/offer between Jan '20 less terminal and Apr '20 is it frowned upon or even possible to shift my date of availability? I'd likely move it to the end of my seasoning then. I don't think it would be an issue but there's so many nuances to this process you never know. Thanks again.
  13. Anyone with recent PC luck remember how long their app sat with SAF/PC? Mines been there a few weeks now after getting slow rolled through the wing. Just curious.
