    There are thousands of mechanics with years of experience waiting to fill any maintenance position at FedEx. This fact doesn't mean much since all any place wants in a new hire is someone that will go to the worst places and do the dirtiest jobs. Every decent place already has enough highly experienced mechanics on hand. What I'm saying is that a kid still has a better chance at getting into the best jobs because they make better "New Guys" than ones with experience. Unless you work by yourself it's all politics, knowlege and skill is actually detrimental.

    Speaking of FedEx. UPS is hiring mechanics.

    I hear it's not that easy to get into as there are only a hand full of positions at the locations that have them.

    How difficult is LAX to get in as an MTP? I saw an external posting for Aviation Mx Tech Trainee(MTP) position on Fedex's website for their LAX location two months ago.

    No idea, but I bet you got to apply for those right away. All you can do is try.

    I am surprised you saw an external posting for an MTP. One of the requirements is you have to be an existing FX employee with an A@P and less than 36 months experience to apply.
