What kind of guy/girl does Oregon hire? Party animal, laid back, in-between?

Just gotta be you.

The 130th Airlift Wing in Charleston, WV has an upcoming Pilot Board in November 2018.  We fly the C-130H3.  I've attached a PDF with the requirements for the UPT board.  Applications are due by October 19th.  If you have any questions, contact Lt Col Matt Bethel (info on the attachment) or shoot me a private message.   

Good Luck!

@UPTapplicant2017 I'll be heading out there. Bringing another applicant along as well (he's coming in from CA, but he'll be crashing at my place since I live 4 hours away). Shoot me a PM if you'd like so we can exchange information and meet after the drill; grab some food and hang out with us.

@Guy Sanchez Nope. Wisconsin stated tomorrow (September 25th) is when they would announce the interview invites. Michigan... Well, I haven't heard anything at all (although I did email the POC earlier today at work).

Good luck! I'm hoping to hear from either one!

Negative. The suspense is tearing me apart.


Nothing from Wisconsin here either, I’m just assuming it’s a no for now, and if I hear different about an interview, it will be some awesome news.

I just hope they will be give some constructive criticism if it is, in fact, a no.

It sucks but I wouldn't be too hard on yourselves... I talked to the recruiters from Minnesota and Wisconsin and they said historically they like to hire from within. Now whether that is true or not is the next question...

Recruiters don't typically have any idea of how the hiring board selects candidates for interviews. They barely know how the process works at all, so just take what they say with a grain of salt.

Recruiters are just the clearing house for the apps, making sure everything is in there. Once deadline is closed and they compile the packets, they pass them to the squadron. Once the board selects the candidates, the selectees are put back into contact with the recruiters to get more paperwork completed and to be ushered along in the enlistment/commissioning process.

I meant the opposite of what you meant but I suppose it can be open to interpretation. 🤔
