Would having an Alaska Flight Attendant as a reference be useful, considering Alaska's interview is all HR?

Yes, and see if that that person would write you a LOR.

Wynn, judging by your post history, you have been here what like 2 months? Meaning you are still in class? Just curious how you have seemingly broken the code on the entire Alaska interview process and know more about the company than I do after 5 years.

In such a competitive environment for pilot hiring it would only make sense that somebody interested would leverage any and all references/LOR that they could muster regardless of that person's position within the company. Standing out from the crowd is the goal with Alaska and having a more diverse group of recommenders is never a bad thing.

So you been here 5 years and you don't think that LOR is a good thing?

Well since he just went through the hiring process, he's probably more qualified to tell people how it works now than how it worked 5 years ago when you got hired and all the things you've forgotten or that have changed since then. I can't see a LOR or two being a bad thing for any airline.

Anyone in the March class, or February class, when was your interview?
