I got the TBNT e-mail from HAL’s recent hiring window. I’m considering applying to Ohana once they have an opening for FOs.
I know you recommend Ohana for their guaranteed interview and the opportunity to network with Hawaiian employees, which is the reason I’m considering transferring from my current airline in Asia.
I wanted to ask if you think that’s a good idea? I’m currently an A330 FO in Asia with international experience, a 4 year degree, and 0 TPIC. A friend suggested I stay where I am since I’m flying heavier aircraft. However, I’m leaning towards Ohana for the reasons stated above.
I have a friend that got the invite with less experience, but he lives in Hawaii and had internal recommendations. On the same note, I heard a number of captains with no ties to the island got TBNTs.
I’m thinking I could stay at my current airline, upgrade to captain and get 1000 TPIC on the bus which will take ~4 years and still not get an invite to interview; or I could work for Ohana and get a guaranteed interview after 2 years. I’m just not sure how this will look in the perspective of the hiring team
