Regionals Still Recruiting
 
My college is hosting a career day in November, and three regionals are bringing their recruiters and recruiting toys: Endeavor, Republic, and PSA.

In this environment, especially with 700 furloughs at PSA, Iím dumbfounded that money is being spent on recruiting.

They still have to build relationships. The recruitment employees are still on the payroll. The tickets cost next to nothing. They already had all the supplies. That leaves get the rental car. It costs next to nothing to continue building relationships with college kids when the majority wonít be ready in the next 12 months.

Its a tax write-off and it keeps their pipeline fresh

10 years to upgrade, 20 years to flow. It sells itself.

So ask them that. Ask them what their priorities are moving forward. Do your research, ask Republic why anyone should chose them when they canít seem to protect the flying they do and have to close bases and move further east. Ask PSA why theyíre spending money on recruiting future pilots while they have furloughed pilots on the street. Youíre interviewing them, too. Youíre allowed to ask the recruiters these questions.

I mean, Iím already at a regional so I probably wonít go. But if I was one of the 700 furloughed Blue Streakers that was told that I was too expensive to keep on property, and then the company went and spent money (no matter the amount) to lure in new hires, Iíd be a little peeved.

In this climate I wouldn't, if you're actively looking for a regional job. They are going to be able to be selective for a while, and CFI's who throw darts at big-picture business strategy won't get on the short list. You can ask about anticipated upgrade times, pool time, etc.

Some regionals seem to feel that the entry-level pilot shortage will pick back up sooner rather than later, and they're probably correct. Regionals historically recover faster than mainline, and a lot of people considering or currently in the training pipeline have bailed permanently.

This is probably the worst advice Iíve read on here.

They probably already had committed to and paid to attend the events prior to the Rona.
