Any idea how long the class waited in the pool on average? Or who swam the longest in the class? This is a very intriguing statistic and it's not because I'm in the pool

Indeed an intriguing stat. It will be interesting to see how long UPS will maintain a delayed hiring pool as others continue to shorten the post interview hiring window.

Prediction - for as long as they want.
They’ve had this “competitive pool” for quite some time and I don’t see it changing anytime soon. Why? Well, because people were asking the same question a decade ago and even two decades ago.
Hope I’m wrong but to truly understand brown you must give up common sense.

When you are only hiring 20-30/month to one of the highest paying jobs in aviation, you can most definitely afford to be selective. It is another to have a need to hire 60-80/month. My opinion, most people prefer the top pax carriers, but UPS does have a niche of people that want to come here. One thing UPS has done over the years is be very consistent in the type of people they hire, something I have seen change with other airlines. People who would normally not have gotten even looked at in the past are getting called for interviews at the other top jobs due to market forces.

One thing is for certain, if and when UPS develops a need to hire 40-50/month consistently, that will be another deal altogether.

They've had the "need" to hire 40-50 a month for some time now. We have new airframes parked "idle" or "inactive spares" or whatever term they chose to use today ... we don't have the bodies to fly them.

The need is there, the training capacity and their desire to hire are not. They find ways to move the volume. Sometimes by violating our scope, sometimes by contractual incentives (vacation buy-backs & JA open time), and they are always optimizing schedules.

They will never have a desire to increase the hiring numbers as long as they are capable of fulfilling their need for more productivity in some way or another.
