It has been a slow process for me but I see on here that for some it’s been pretty quick.  I applied on Jan 28, interviewed on March 3, offered a conditional position on March 4, official offer on March 16th.  Start date isn’t until April 18th. 
Hang in there💜

recruiter told me, since former employee I have to be review before job offer can be given and that many former workers are reapplying since they took voluntary resigned during Con-vid and they have to reviewed them all, I know I should be good since I received an offer from another position

I was originally told that during my offer that it would be 4-6 weeks after my background check that I'd get my start date. It went a lot quicker than that, and I'll post an updated timeline for myself soon. I really think its taking a while because they are doing hiring events for pilots. There is a shortage and I'm sure that takes priority. Idk. I have my theories. Lol.
