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. Jul 29, 2020 Easy, relaxed interview. Just be yourself. The technical interview did feel like an oral exam, but the interviewer put me at ease. There seemed to be a couple questions not on the gouge, like what are the segments of climb. Other than that, study the guide they sent. Good... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jul 28, 2020 Very straight forward. Everyone was very nice, very professional and put you at ease. The HR portion was your typical questions found here in the gouge, resume review, and a few situational type questions from the interviewing captain. It all felt conversational, and I didn't feel like there were any gotcha questions. The virtual interview is a little odd at first, but as long as everything works, it will go smoothly. The tech portion was as advertised here. There were a couple of questions,... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 24, 2020 Really relaxed, HR asked me to tell me about myself, strengths vs weakness, how to handle conflict in the cockpit, how do we do CRM in a single piloted aircraft, how we brief and debrief and how did I prepare for the tech interview. Tech panel was even more relaxed, V1, V2, SLOP, great circle discussion, if I lost 1 engine after takeoff on a 747 would I continue The transoceanic crossing. That was it, we had some connection issues with the call so it was definitely shorter than normal, but... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jun 03, 2020 "Virtual interview". Basic HR questions including "tell me about a captain you had an issue with." Tech questions - All questions were straight forward. Example: Used JEPP charts, approach for MIA and taxi diagram. Asked questions about the approach. What are the t/o minimums, looking at the weather, do you need a t/o alternate. If you are at FL300 and ATC asked you to decend to FL200 by a specific VOR, when would you start your descent and how did you come up with... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. May 20, 2020 The gouge on this site is right on. The phone screening was from an HR manager, very laid back, basic resume review. She asked what I wanted to fly and why. The interview was three parts, all online. The first part is a company presentation from a chief pilot. I had seem the same presentation at a FAPA virtual career fair. The second part was a technical review with a retired chief pilot. He was friendly, but definitely more intense with his questions than I would've expected. He...
