Hawaiian is opening their hiring window up again from February 8th (9am HST) to March 1st. Not sure of the total hiring numbers for this year but they are saying this is to refill the pool which has been drained over the last few classes. The memo says to apply again even if you have already applied and/or interviewed in the past. The good news is that applicants who are invited to interview will receive confirmed (not sure if it's an actual ticket or space available) travel on Hawaiian, a hotel in Waikiki and "meals" (not sure if that's just during the interview or during the entire time). Additionally, if you get invited back for Phase 2, sessions will be available in Honolulu, LA and New York and again, transportation and accommodations will be provided. This is a huge improvement over the previous hiring process. Things to know... Honolulu is the only domicile. While there are constantly rumors of reopening west coast bases, there is nothing announced. Many guys (about 25% of the pilot group) commute, but you will be sacrificing QOL to do so as the mentality is still geared towards non commuters (no commuter clause, one direction segment trading is rare, there aren't a lot of crashpads etc etc). First year pay is low. It isn't expected to go up much with a new contract. Year 2 and onward pay is livable but below the rest of the industry. Hopefully that gets resolved in the new contract. Living in Hawaii is expensive. Know your financial situation and ability. The 321 NEOs are delayed 3 months and now EIS is January 2018 (instead of "fourth quarter 2017"). This may slow the hiring down a bit but they haven't made any announcements about that. Currently there are vacancies in the 330, 321 and 717. There may be 767 vacancies as well but with the expedited retirement schedule they've announced (end of 2018) nobody knows. If you've got questions ask away. There are a few HAL guys on here.
