2000 New Hire Awards

For those of you who don't yet know, there is a "random" procedure applied to all new hire Flight Officers that determines your seniority within your class.  The procedure that UAL uses to rank you with your classmates is to take the last four digits of your Social Security Number and issue seniority numbers based upon where you are compared to others within your class. (Numbers ending with: 0001 = Senior  /  9999 = Junior)

I've heard more than one complaint about the procedure, but they usually come from guys whose last names begin with either A, B, or C.  If you think about it, the SS# deal that United uses truly is completely random since it only used the last four digits.  Anyhow, the propose of explaining this is to give you an idea as to where you MIGHT stand within your class if / when you are hired.

Needless to say, in the airline business, SENIORITY IS EVERYTHING; and you will find that out on your first day of school when it's time to bid for the next two years of your life.  The #1 guy in class gets his first pick of all the available positions available to the class, and the last guy, the Ball, (God Save Da Ball) gets what ever is left over.

THE CEREMONY "FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE 8 BALL"
EVERY MONDAY IN CHARACTERS SPORTS BAR IN THE DOUBLETREE HOTEL
(ACROSS FROM THE TRAINING CENTER) FROM 1700-1830
(CEREMONY AT 1808 SHARP)
(I just checked the board, and the last class that I could get any info on was the DEC 03 class. If anyone some more recent information, please forward it to me. I will get it posted as soon as I can.)
Total hired YTD(2000) = 1032 pilots.
