My question is whether it's worth joining the Alaska Talent management system? It appears to be separate and distinct from the hiring website. Would the recruiting folks not just provide updates to the email address on the application?
Thanks!
if you go to talent management you will get offers to go to Horizon and flow to Alaska. Bad idea in my opinion.

why do you not meet hiring requirements? Time in past year? Lots of ways to work this. Do you know anyone that works for Alaska?

Agree, I'm trying to go direct. Sent you a PM.

I've had my application in and updated for a couple of months and no response. Highlights are as follows:

- 1950 TT
- 1020 Turbine
- 475 Turbine PIC
- ATP
- College Degree

I'm also a bit older (second career), and would like to make Alaska my permanent home. But, again, I can't get anyone to respond. Any insight would be appreciated.

I was hired with similar numbers and no degree. That being said I had my app in for months and didn't hear anything until going to a meet and greet. That would be your best course of action.

I agree with the above poster. Go to a meet the CP or if you have a buddy that works here have them walk you in. Face time will really help. I walked in a friend with less quals than you and he got a call 3 days later. We have a bunch of hiring coming up so its probably not a if but when for you.
Also, keep in mind everyone is hiring and there are lots of great options out there. I never blame anyone for making decisions based on their lifestyle, money situation, and priorities. Know that if you come to AS the opportunity to grow in separate airframes is very limited. I've been here a while and not going to leave even though I probably should because I have 20+ years left. Not commuting for me is the best part of my job as I did it for my previous airlines.
Good luck

They are throttling back on hiring to get the rest of the Airbus pilots transitioned, so it might take a while to hear back.

As the others have said, they are going to be pushing a lot of airbus transitions through. But definitely keep updating your times. When you get above that 2,000 mark maybe it will help some more… who knows but keep trying

Exactly what happened with AA a few years ago as they retired the Mad Dogs. Hiring stopped. World coming to an end. “We just knew it.” No, training the MD-80 pilots to go the 737 and A320. Then, hiring resumed.

In case anyone was curious about current hiring from the applicant end - I applied and attended a MTC event in January, I meet mins, internal rec, I keep updating my app, etc. Not long after the MTC event, one of the base chiefs told me that "its only a matter of time [before you receive an invitation to interview]" so hopefully thats true. I am aware of the current pause in hiring due to phasing out of the Airbus.

Yesterday was the first I heard from recruiting. They sent this email:
Thank you again for your interest in the First Officer position with Alaska Airlines. We know that you are patiently waiting as we continue to review all applications. Please know that your application is still under consideration and we will contact you as soon as we have an update.

Has anyone been given an interview date recently?
