All interviews have been postponed "for a couple of weeks"
The downward spiral begins

I got an email 2 days ago from Pinnacle inviting me for an interview this week or the next. Have not heard anything to the contrary yet...

i had a buddy that was supposed to have an interview tomorrow, and they called him and told him that interviews were postponed for 3 weeks. I hope he was wrong

did she give you a reason why?
Northwest just filed bankruptcy and you want to know why hiring has been suspended at Pinnacle?
Look at his profile. Let's give Detroitpilot22 a break, as he knows not the ways of the world.

I'd be careful about going to Pinnacle for two reasons. First, they're scary. Second, without a good cash reserve the NWA filing is going to hit 9E extremely hard. If you add the contract situation as well, you can paint a pretty gloomy picture. I'd go somewhere else or stay where you are. Right now isn't the time to leave a job just to get furloughed.

No. 9E has no real assets or cash savings. When they get pinched, everyone there is going to feel it.
