FREE Piedmont Airlines pilot interview information and gouge

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 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

  2. May 12, 2020 Very nice interview, like everyone elses says here is METAR, TAF, WX, Jepps and HOLDINGS.  Technical part: Read metar and taf. If you are not sure about something just say it, I missed a few things that I did not remember, no big deal. Just be yourself.  (view the study guide of this website).  They are building a pool of candidates to start hiring again soon, calls are gonna be based on experience. So disregard the training...

  3. May 07, 2020 Applied to the cadet program and heard back around a month later and got an interview scheduled for May. Interview was very straightforward, everyone throughout the whole process was extremely nice and made me feel comfortable. Listen to myself and everyone else who has posted interview experiences, just study the gouge and you will be completely... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. 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

  7. Apr 15, 2020 2 part interview hosted by both an HR guy & pilot guy. Recommend taking the whole day off from work. First, a 45 minute presentation about the company in the morning. Then they ask you to log back in when its your turn in the queue. The 2nd part (actual interview) lasted about an hour. A few HR questions to start off, then technical questions, a robust Metar to interpret & read back. Then Jepp APR plate brief, followed by more technical questions. Then AP diagram questions. And...

  8. Apr 06, 2020 Virtual interview due to current events, but was still a fun experience. I had a 2 person panel. One individual from HR and a line pilot/recruiter. Started with a company presentation that was about 15 minutes. Went through the normal items, benefits, bases, training timeline, etc. Then went right into the tech portion. Started off with weather questions. Showed a sheet of METARs. Read through 2 of them. Then I was asked open-ended questions about them. (view the study guide of this...

  9. Apr 06, 2020 Overall, very pleasant experience. I did a virtual interview over WebEx due to concerns with the Coronavirus--the interview lasted right at about an hour. The two Piedmont interviewers used the first 20 minutes to conduct a short presentation on the company and pay/benefits for a new first officer. I then spent a little time talking about my flying background and then we did the "technical evaluation" of the interview. The information provided at AirlineInterviews was right on....

  10. Apr 06, 2020 I had a great experience. It was a virtual interview. I emailed all my paper work the week prior. Review jepp plates and metars for thunder storms. The HR questions were good but hard to always explain. If there’s a question you haven’t had experience with tell them what you think you’d do. Overall straight forward and everyone was really nice. Write down your questions prior so you don’t forget to ask when you’re put on the... Continue reading this interview experience
