I went on airline apps and they want internal recommendations from employees and it say it is required, so I cant apply unless I know someone?

To my knowledge, an internal recommendation isn't required - then again, my resume was walked in, so I can't speak for certain. I can tell you that as with all companies, a recommendation is highly beneficial. I can also tell you that at this point, we're not even talking to anybody with less than 1000/100. Good luck!

my class date isn't till Jan 2, so was guessing 8 weeks for initial and sim till i hit the (reserve) line.

all i know is second-hand rumor, but at least here at Purdue they'll be back to interview more people this March.

how long ago? internal recommendation? just curious, during our sept. 5th and oct. 9th classes, hiring times weren't all that high, by the end of the hiring spree for the oct. 9th class, they were looking at people w/ "quantity" hours again, basically 1000/100...but, they did later ask me and a couple friends for recomendations, cause their "quantity" applicants basically were either bombing the interview, or they thought flying w/ them was going to be a difficult difficult time.
