Lol. Sooner or later you’ll learn how not to act when in this “hiring” environment.

So recruits aren't allowed to ask questions that could potentially affect their careers and livelihood? Starting to feel like 2008 again when pilots were just "thankful to have a job"...

Not setting a great precedence.

My dad was in HR for a private business, non airline related. He was told to go interview on campus even when their recruitment goals were zero. Keep the foot in the door. Maintain relationships. Helped when they needed to hire a bunch the next year.

not sure what precedent you are arguing for, but even if thousands of pilots had not been put out of work and there were not limited job openings, ****ing off the person interviewing me does not seem wise.

Envoy had one of the most robust recruiting departments in the industry. Expect Envoy recruiters to be back on campuses interviewing future American Airlines pilots in the coming months. The department will be coming back to full strength and in the future I would likely suspect that the recruiting corps grows exponentially.

It's important to remember that Envoy isn't PSA.

assume the answer is bad. What makes you think a recruiter 1) knows the truth 2) would tell you

You’re a job applicant, not a stock analysr

Envoy also isn’t recruiting.
