Default IOE training issues?

I talked with an associate, who just resigned from GoJet. Not sure if the real issue was him or if what he said is the truth:

From his class of 15, which finished up in the last 4 months, less than half a dozen are still flying for GoJet. A few were let go, although he didn't know why, and several have resigned.

IOE Training: He was still in training and was frustrated that he couldn't finish it up, (in IOE at least a month, but may have been two months since I'm not sure when he finished training in St Louis). He said that everyone is getting jrmanned and flying lots of hours but the Captains responsible for signing off for the new hires on their IOE training aren't willing to take the chance with signing off on someone, just in case that person messes up and it reflects on the captain.

Anyone willing to shed some light on what is really happening?

LCAs wonít sign-off on someone who is not ready. I assure you the company is trying to pressure said LCA to sign people off as soon as humanly possible and get them on the line. The standards are the standards. Itís worth considering that G7 struggles with recruitment. There is allot of candidates at the company that were unsuccessful elsewhere either from training failures, interviewing, lack of experience or otherwise. When a company struggles with recruitment, they tend to lower the hiring standards and not everyone is ready to fly jets when they pass their checkride. Itís the tradeoff for taking applicants that just meet the legal minimums.
