I applied for a bilingual flight attendant position at a large US-based airliner, but my application got rejected. The generic rejection letter is as follows (some parts have been left out or altered for anonymity purposes):
"Thank you for your interest in a career with X Air Lines.
We received an overwhelming response to Flight Attendant- X Speaking position which makes us feel both humble and proud that so many talented individuals like you want to join our team. This volume of response makes for an extremely competitive selection process. Although your background is impressive, we regret to inform you that we have decided to pursue other candidates for this position at this time.
We value our job candidates and invite you to review other job openings. We hope you see another job that you are qualified for and that sparks your interest!
Thanks again for your interest in a career with X Air Lines!"
The application process consisted of attaching my resume and answering a questionnaire. I submitted my application on the evening of Friday, August 10th, but I got the above response just two days later on Sunday evening. Since the company referred to is a large company and there are numerous applicants, could it be that I got screened in some automatic process? I am asking this question because I submitted my application and got rejected over the weekend. I assume that HR does not work on the weekends. To me, it is strange that I at least hear some sort of response from large companies, but hardly hear back anything from small firms.
