Whiz Quiz…

January 21st, 2005 · No Comments

It’s been a few days. The trip I was took everything out of me (yet again). I don’t know what it is about overnighting in places like Cleveland and Detroit that just drains all the positivity out of me. Crappy, cold, snowy, slushy, bullshit weather. Blech!!

Not a whole lot to report on the Southwest Airlines front. I’ve been talking with Kim in the People Department quite a bit over the last few days. She’s the one who’s in charge of administering my background check and that sort of thing. She had me scheduled to take a pre-employment drug test today (also known as “The Whiz Quiz”) down in Glendale. I studied hard, so I don’t think I’ll have any difficulty passing. When they get the results of that, they’ll launch everything else. My fingerprints get processed. My employment history gets looked at. My credit history gets examined. They look at my FAA records and my airline training records. I’ve never had any problems with the other two airline-employer background checks, so I think this one will go just fine.

Once all that stuff gets done (which takes a few weeks, I’m told), I’ll officially been thrown into the SWA pilot hiring pool, where I’ll tread water for the next few months. Someone should throw me a towel sometime in June or July, and I’ll head off to Dallas to start training at the last airline I’ll ever work for.
