How about the lack of posts from the extremely qualified pilots that got the job. I'm sure they take exception to the fact that you've decided they're inexperienced based on a couple of posts on this forum.

The lack of something as an indicator?

It is so funny. Almost every person is actually putting in their posts why they did not get hired.

"I have XXXXX hours and XXX type ratings and XXX Turbine PIC and XXXX jet"

Who doesn't???????? The average newhire at NJ has a lot of experience but they did something either in the application stage or in the interview process that distinguished themselves from the rest.

So you ask a pilot to describe themselves and they immediately resort to hours, types, jet, and operating environment. This is a job where flying is 20 percent of the deal. We as pilots are an egotistical bunch. I remember in my NJ interview there were four guys who actually had the nerve to come in the room and say aloud to the other interviewees they "nailed" it and guess what? Not one of them is currently employed at NJ.

Ok now let the attacks begin.........

Very well said flyguy737. The ranters always seem to try and rationalize why they SHOULD have gotten hired instead of focusing on why they DIDN'T get hired.
As was mentioned before, every applicant at NJA has an average of well over 3000 hrs, so we are certainly not hiring based on lack of "experience". The job market sucks, and NJA has gotten very selective, but to call our pilot recruitment process "crap" is a real slap in the face to those who got the job. I think our new hires are worth more than that.....

Ok, now I understand , its not really a pilots job. Not an attack just an understanding that what I thought was a fliing job really isn't.
looks like a reasonable place to work based on this info

Sounds about right. Not a "fliing" job at all. Attention to detail is always important in the application and interview process. Flying... not so important.
