Last upgrades - the lowest seniority have been there one year. But then they also have walked in with considerable time and command >100k kg time

latest class full of experience, 705 PIC time, 777 captain back from the sandbox, military, etc.

Interview process: 1 HR , 2 Pilots, standard behavioral questions. Technical questions are oral and not written, asked by the panel.

Hope that helps

I am not sure if there will be any more groundschools this winter or spring. The March schedule just came out and it doesn't show anyone doing groundschool or new-hire SIM (for YYZ at least). They probably put people in the pool so if they need to run a class, they have a group that they can draw from. Every month though we do lose a couple pilots who go to AC and there are a few retirements coming up, but with the summer slow season approaching, we may have enough pilots to last through until the fall.

I would call the HR contact that you received when you interviewed and ask if there are any plans for hiring this spring or summer.

I did ring Human Remains and apparently nothing is planned due to the MAX debacle.
12,000h on 737 and no interview, but who said life is fair?
