Just like its has been described in other gouges... They will fly you down to ATL the night before positive space which is nice. Only bad thing is you have to go through a United hub each way, but still easy nonetheless. I suggest staying at the Drury Inn, free hot dinner and breakfast and clean rooms with good internet, ask for the Expressjet rate. In the morning the shuttle will drive you over to the Expressjet building at 7AM for the 730 interview. All of us that were interviewing met on the shuttle and exchanged our backgrounds. We were met by one of the pilot recruiters in the main lobby around 7:20 and brought upstairs. Shown a presentation on the company, they said if they brought you there for the interview it is your job to loose. You have to pass all the tests and make it through the HR portion but they don't bring down herds of applicants just to turn people away.
We started the process with three tests. First cognitive, for this I used lumosity.com and an app called brainfit. Both worked well for what they gave us, and make sure you pay attention to the instructions. Time is important for some of the exercises but make sure you take your time and don't hit the wrong answers. The younger guys finished this test first. Not saying they did better, but were quicker about it. The recruiter said it was usually a bad thing if you finished under 15 minutes or over an hour. Next was the psych test, 240 questions you either agree with or disagree with, there is no way to study for this just answer the questions honestly. The last test was the Delta tech test. 60 questions in 60 minutes. To prepare for this I read and studied "Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual", and "Aerodynamics for Naval Aviators". All do a good job of covering the study guide they will e-mail to you prior to the interview. This test is the hardest part of the process. I took 2 weeks studying and felt prepared for the test. After you finished you were given a written paragraph to write about, we all had aircraft and airframe icing. Then you get 10 HR type questions like, what would you do if you were commuting to base and all flights were full, describe a conflict you had at work, why expressjet. We then went down to the cafeteria for lunch, $5 will get you a pretty good meal there.
After lunch we were called in for our 1-1 on interviews. I did mine with a former chief pilot, very nice guy and brought a relaxed atmosphere to the interview which was nice. We started by going over the airlineapps application and reviewing certs. Then I was asked why do I think I'm ready to fly for an airline. Then tech questions; what's a VDP, balanced field length, MOCA, brief ILS34 KAVL and call the hold, when can you continue an approach if below mins, explain your flying background. That was pretty much it for the 1-1. I was told I would be getting the recommendation for hire. We started the day with 6 and finished with 4, the other 2 left after the three tests and lunch. After the 1-1 went to drug test and fingerprinting, given conditional offer and that was it. I was called 8 days later with a formal offer for a class date on the ERJ.
Overall seems like a great company and the pilot recruiting office is full of good seemingly honest people which cannot be said about all regionals. My best advice is to study the books 2-3 weeks leading up to the interview and be yourself during the 1-1 process.
