As would be expected, those in the cancelled April new hire classes were informed today that CJOs are voided and to reapply if and when things ever normalize. Bummer, but HR was nice about it.

That really sucks! Sorry guys. Whats the benefit to Alaska by voiding CJOs? This will pass, air travel will return, and Alaska as well as everyone else will eventually start hiring again, albeit could be quite a while. Why not keep these people in the pool? If they've moved on to something else by the time Alaska calls, no harm no foul. Just seems like an unnecessary blow to folks that are probably already taking it in the teeth. Just my .02.

Because "eventually" might be years, and by then, the entire process, including background checks, would need to be repeated. I guess they figure it's better to just start over.

Southwest did the same thing.

My buddy gave notice at his employer and couldnít get his old job back when AS cancelled his class. Really left out in the cold by AS.

Would have been good to at least give the people in the pool a shot at another interview?

IDK maybe something?

Itís just a ruthless industry and bad timing. I guess I just need to remind myself of that. Other industries are a lot different.

I couldnít leave someone who jumped through every hoop out on the street but I guess that isnít just on AS but his former employer as well.

They honored the first few post-covid class dates, supposedly for that reason. How much notice did he give? Too much apparently.

Did they actually dump them or will they be the first to come back? If they straight up dumped them after giving them a class then yea thatís cold.

We were told that we should reapply if and when hiring commences in the future. No mention of any preferential hiring should that time come. Again, my experience with HR was nothing but positive overall despite the way it ended. Unfortunately itís been a garbage year for everyone.
