The interview was pretty straight forward. Everything on the gouge was spot on and the interview has no surprises so relax and just study and keep current on your IFR stuff. The day started out with me flying to CLT, flight was delayed so i contacted my recruiter to let her know about it, once I arrive I went to the baggage claim, door D, and if you walk to your right their is a sign that says American flight training center shuttle, make sure you take it. Once you check in, you'll wait for your recruiter to pick you up from the cafeteria. Once they picked us up, without missing a beat we started to... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. May 25, 2020 Very straight forward. All of the questions came from the gouge on here. Just study it, know how to brief an approach and you will be good. HR was standard questions.

  2. May 19, 2020 The interview was heavier on the tech side, not so many HR questions. They throw some challenging METARS your way, be prepared to read/interpret everything in them especially unusual items in the remarks portion. Be prepared to answer questions on Thunderstorms, microbursts and icing. Be familiar with Jepp plates and be prepared to brief approach, full procedure, missed, holding, holding speeds and entries. Lastly, be familiar with Jepp airport/taxi diagram, know symbols on there. Overall... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. May 15, 2020 Walked through training history beginning with flying in college. Any failures? Just said nearly entirety of ECIC intro. Briefed ILS16 BHM.

  4. May 14, 2020 Please note the training date above is incorrect. It should be TBD as Piedmont is not currently offering training dates. Pilots that “pass” the interview are placed in a “Candidate Hiring Pool” and will be contacted once training resumes. The interview was conducting via online due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements. I interviewed with one person from HR and one pilot recruiter. Both individuals were very professional and seemed excited to be talking... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. May 12, 2020 Very nice interview, like everyone elses says here is METAR, TAF, WX, Jepps and HOLDINGS.  Technical part: Read metar and taf.

  8. May 05, 2020 Every single question I was asked are all in the gouges. The only question that surprised me was “why is clear ice heavier than Rime ice” which I later looked up and found it was because rime has a lot of air(opaque) and water is heavier than air except when air is compressed. Meter Thunderstorms Microburst Jepps Airport... Continue reading this interview experience
