Companies do still hire low timers, and i really do believe its all about attitude and not the way you dress. I had not even finished my training that two companies had offered me a job. I started fresh out from training at 100hrs, did the go-fer thing and helped with maintenance as i am an apprentice AME. And now, a few months after, i am doing my astar type rating and will be doing my PPC shortly after. As said before, it's not because the company doesn't have a job posting for a low timer that you should not go see them and talk to them. And don't expect to fly right away and stay home when you are not flying. But in my opinion working in the hangar, and as ground crew on contracts is really important. You learn so much more from doing so. Being a helicopter Pilot isn't all about how good your are with the controls.
