I gave up on waiting and called HR the other day. The lady I spoke with said that they had some interviews last week (before Thanksgiving), but those were the last until at least next year. As for training, she confirmed that they are concentrating on operations due to peak season and all, and they have not discussed training or hiring, but after Jan 1st, anything could happen. There are no plans yet, but the situation will be assessed after the new year. She told me there were 81 in the pool. That's all the info I could squeeze out of them. If anyone hears anything, please put up a post.
