Hiring events often times are held in convention halls or offices that aren’t exactly inspirational. On Wednesday, Endeavor Air broke that mold by holding a hiring event in location that literally helped create the aviation industry as we know it.
The #EDVNYC Hiring Event was held at the American Airpower Museum at the Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY. The airfield was once home to aircraft manufacturers testing grounds, and today serves as a bustling business aviation airport. The hangar that the American Airpower Museum resides is the final resting space for dozens of vintage warbirds and aircraft under restoration.
More than 250 people attended the event, many with the hopes of interviewing for a variety of positions at Endeavor – Pilots, Technicians, and Flight Attendants, to name just a few.
“This event allowed Endeavor to truly showcase who it is in the New York City area,” noted Nancy Shane, Director, Pilot Recruiting. “We’re growing our operations at our bases in New York, so we wanted to give candidates the chance to get to know us the same way we wanted to get to know them.”
The museum offered candidates incredible backdrops for their interviews, including some meetings held inside the hull of a World War II era C-47 Douglas SkyTrain transport plane.
Endeavor also flew in one of its Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft for attendees to tour throughout the day. For many of the pilots who were interviewed and offered Contingent Job Offers (CJOs), it was a chance for them to climb into their new “office” for the very first time.
When the day was done, employee and attendees spent the day sharing stories about the company, the museum, and all the opportunities aviation has offered throughout the years.
