Arrived at PS HQ around 11am. They break up the interview into 4 portions. HR interview, HR presentation, facility tour, sim evaluation. I did the HR interview first and questions that were asked were pretty standard.  Then a scenario where the PIC is flying an approach what sorts of things as the FO am I looking for? If he goes below the MDA what do you do? What if after you let him know to go missed he continues even further? What do you do? They concluded the HR interview by allowing me to ask questions of which I had a few. HR interview was probably where I preformed best. You have to remember that at PS you're the point of contact for all customers. They really want to see what you'll be a good... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Aug 04, 2020 Technical interview done over video chat. Then to planesense HQ for simulator evaluation and HR interview. Become familiar with Jeppeson charts. Simulator is very hard to control if you have limited experience in a simulator like that, however the consensus is that they are mearly looking for strong instrument skills in the...

  2. Jul 15, 2020 I thought the interview went great but I am a mainline pilot. I believe this was a huge downfall. It was a technical portion for direct entry CA with a chief pilot and I don’t believe I missed a single question from charts/plates for approaches and arrivals. They send you charts/etc prior so just brush up on each and be familiar with them. Other than that it was basic questions pertaining to IFR... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jul 08, 2020 It was a really awesome interview experience. The people were very friendly. The facility is beautiful. All the questions on the study guide here are accurate.. for the technical portion just study the packet of Jepp plates they send you and for the sim portion it’s going to be IFR in a bonanza sim (that’s what they put me in at least) be yourself and they’ll be friendly in...

  4. Jun 10, 2020 FO Interview Technical interview was done online in March. Second half was delayed due to Covid. Got a call at the beginning of June asking me to come in for a simulator eval and HR interview. Started with an HR presentation which answered most of my questions. Next was the simulator eval.  Not as hard as to hold altitude as I thought it was going to be! As long as you keep a good scan going you'll be fine. HR interview lasted 20 minutes with maybe 5 simple questions (they're already... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Apr 09, 2020 It was a very relaxing interview that lasted approximately 4 hrs in length with all the candidates. I applied by sending my resume to the email on their website and than received a call and did a short phone interview and was invited to their headquarters to do in person interview, we had a hr portion and technical portion. Hr portion was very easy questions that anyone can answer. And technical part was basic ifr questions, weather questions, and aerodynamics, which was very easy, and I was...

  6. Apr 08, 2020 The technical interview (on-line) was straightforward. Study the material that they send you, and you should do fine. Know how to read Jepp approach plates. You will be asked about non-standard minimums. Know where to find them. I was told a week later that I had passed this part of the interview. The remaining part (HR) will be completed when air travel goes back to relative normalcy again. Currently, I am waiting for them to call me to go to New... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Mar 27, 2020 I was contacted to do the online technical interview and asked technical questions based on approach plates sent to me about 5 days in advance. I studied using the questions here and of course studying the plates. I got an email 4 days later saying that I had done well but that they are moving forward with someone with more experience. The study questions on the website are fairly accurate and helped me prepare myself. Good luck in your... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Mar 25, 2020 These questions here were very accurate. Know your ifr procedures. 30 minute online interview was straight to the point and then time to ask questions about the company. The guy interviewing was very friendly and made it felt like you were talking to a friend. Due to the current travel restrictions they emailed saying they would like to continue the interview process when travel... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Mar 24, 2020 Very brief interview online. Pretty upfront, they will e-mail you charts to review. I HIGHLY recommend printing those off and reviewing them before the phone call. Look at the legends online for Jepp and Terminal charts and make notes. Know your speeds as well. Reviewed departures and IAP plates, look for speed restriction on the departure and be able to brief one. IAP questions were typical. (view the study guide of this website). Phone call finishes up with why PlaneSense. The gentlemen... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Feb 19, 2020 Simple 30-minute Q&A that tests your knowledge of all the FARs and material received in advance. For example, I was asked the airspeeds for flying through the different airspaces, including the difference of Class A flight through and under. I guess I just missed too many questions. I will continue studying and move along to the next... Continue reading this interview experience
