    Wasn't Alaska the airline that shocked the world a few months ago by hiring for the first time in years? And now they are again?

    No, Alaska has been pretty consistent in hiring at least once a year since probably 2010-11 now.

    So anyone who might be at Alaska can help me with something?

    I was filling out the application, hit the next button on the bottom, and next thing I know the application says submitted. No chance to review or go over anything before final submission. Is that normal or did I mess something up? Every other online job application I have ever done allowed a final review before submission, so it totally caught me off guard. Think I should cal HR and clarify? I got the email that confirms they received it.

    I'm happy where I am, but Alaska just had a huge pay raise if anyone wants to know.

    I have a fuzzy memory, but it was something like $35-60 now.

    Last I heard, it sounded like the one position that was open was most likely being filled by an internal candidate.
