Workopolis lowered their posted hiring minimums from 3000tt to 1500tt.

However I don't understand why, last I heard they have 3000 qualified applicants on file 800 of which with internal references. In the past you required two internal references.

Also a hard minimum is 1000multipic

Heard they're calling 10-12/month for interview.

Hope I could help have you heard of Avcanada.ca?

Hiring will continue through the year. Minimums are about 2500 hrs but classes are still averaging over 5000. Upgrades are around the 5 year mark now.
