The interview was very close to what others said it would be in the past. Due to the Corona Virus everything was via phone and Online. I received the prescreen interview phone call one week after my resume was submitted internally. Once you get done with that and are successful they set up the three part Skype interview/corporate presentation events. There was technical difficulties on my corporate presentation so they had to reschedule everyone for the next presentation. Right now all presentations are done on Mondays and Thursdays....

  1. May 06, 2020 4 part process. All done virtually. First- Phone interview. This step was very laid back (as was the rest of the process). Just verifying information off of your resume and app and seeing why you want to work at Atlas. Second- Company Presentation. Just QnA. Very informative. Third/Fourth- Hr and Tech. HR was standard. Chief pilot and Training Dept. person. Why Atlas? Dealing with problem causing crewmembers, some labor negotiation questions. WWYD if? But nothing too in depth. Tech was...

  2. May 06, 2020 Interview process is all done online and matches closely with the experiences of others in recent interviews. First day was just a company overview presentation given by a Chief Pilot and HR Representatives. It was nice to get more information, and they allowed time for Q+A at the end. The interview day was on a separate day, and consists of a tech panel and an HR panel. Tech Panel: About 30 minutes prior to the interview, I got a text with a weather sheet attached to it. It had a... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. May 06, 2020 Very laid back and comfortable setting. A week after submission you'll get an email for a quick HR phone screen. After that you set a date for the actual Tech and HR interviews, which was about a week after the phone screen. (All over video conference software due to Covid-19). Very nice, no surprises. Everything they ask is on this website, standard stuff. It took 6 days to hear back from them with a conditional... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. May 06, 2020 Very laid back, all the questions are on this website. Phone screen, a week later HR and Tech interview over Skype due to Covid-19. HR was quick only a few questions about your aviation experience, why Atlas, and intoxicated Captain. Tech was standard chart questions, V1, V2, Vmcg. No surprises if you read through the study guide on this... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. May 05, 2020 Conducted an online interview series due to COVID-19. Application submitted end of March, received a phone call at the end of April to set up an initial phone screening a couple days later. Passed the phone screen and was offered an interview. Online Interview sequence is three parts: Corporate presentation, HR panel, Tech Panel. The Corporate presentations are done on set days (I think Monday and Thursday) and are a pre-requirement for moving to the HR/Tech panels. The presentation is...

  6. Apr 30, 2020 Got an email to schedule a phone screening, I was in the middle of a trip so I Scheduled it a week later. Standard HR questions, then invited to virtual online interview. First portion of HR was a get to know you very friendly process. Tech interview, as long as you study the questions listed in AviationInterviews and also study the topics on the study guide they send you, should be more than enough to be prepared. Very friendly and laid back process, be yourself and study these questions... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Apr 23, 2020 As expected...minor curveballs. Tech Panel: Essentially talked through a flight from CVG (cargo ramp) to MIA. Incorporated the questions from the gouge in a logical manner. I was asked 3 things that I had not seen before. (View the study guide of this... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Apr 23, 2020 My HR interview was very laid back, just a few questions already said on here. Tech interview started with how I imagined it would, 10-9, 10-9A, metar and Taf, sig wx charts, visibility requirements for takeoff, drunk pilot, v1 speed how would you abort takeoff, definition of icing. Didn’t ask me any fuel requirements, SLOP, holding speeds. I flew through that part so he started digging into oceanic crossings and specifics about long and lat lines. Probably because I have no experience... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Apr 16, 2020 Like most of the experiences that have been shared on here. HR was about 35-45 min. Laid back HR, my panel was with an HR lady and a chief pilot. TMAAT's (CRM use, best/worst student when instructing) what would you do scenarios, and then ran down a list of yes/no questions, training failures. Tech panel was with a LCA. Lasted about 50 min. Very nice. Kind of gave a quick resume run down, wanted to know your previous flying experience, went right into a mock walk around, explain where I... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Apr 16, 2020 Interviewers were all very friendly and made you feel comfortable throughout the process. AviationInterviews was spot on for the most part, however I had a few unexpected curve balls thrown in from the tech panel, although it shouldn't be an issue if you know your airplane. Thunderstorm avoidance was also asked. If you stick to the gouge on aviationinterviews you'll be fine, but recommend lightly reviewing systems as... Continue reading this interview experience
