Interview started at 0830 in Salt Lake. Myself and three other applicants. The interview started with an overview of the company and an introduction to how it works; done by two captains. I was selected first to do the HR portion with one of the captains. Because I had gone to a Cadet experience the day before they brought me out of the overview of the company prior to it ending to do the HR portion. It was very relaxed. The captain had to do some errands so we walked and talked for part of it. The questions were about disagreements with previous bosses, what would be the hardest thing about joining Skywest, what aircraft would I prefer, etc... see that portion of the gauge for more info. He also... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Nov 16, 2023 Interviewed with a First officer that started with SkyWest in the early part of summer.  He introduced himself then I introduced myself. Went into a couple things on my resumé. I was asked about flight times in the past 30, 60, and 90 days then 1 year. Went over ATP mins and determined I met r-ATP mins because of XC and multi time. The HR portion seemed to be somewhat short. Was only asked a few questions.  After the HR portion we went into housekeeping/PRIA... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Nov 16, 2023 As others have stated, everything you need for the interview you will find in this site. My interview was with an FO. The tone was friendly and relaxed, but he was very thorough with the questions. We started with introductions and immediately went into the technical questions. (view the study guide of this website).   Explain the electrical system of the airplane that you are flying, airport signage, ILS boundary, hold short, destination signs, brief and approach (ILS/LOC),...

  3. Nov 16, 2023 Started off with basic HR questions (How did you get into flying/Why SkyWest?) and logbook totals. Then got into a CRM scenario, (view the study guide of this website).  The technical portion consisted of decoding a METAR and TAF,  I currently fly a C208 so I was asked to describe how a PT6 works and the electrical system on my aircraft.  Was also asked about basic IFR regs.  We went over some basic weather like thunderstorms and mountain waves. I was also asked about... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Nov 15, 2023 Everything I was asked on my interview were things I had studied from this website. There were no surprises! The interview started with introductions - he started and gave about a 3 minute intro. Make sure you ask a few follow up questions to show you were listening and actually cared about the things the interviewer told you. Try to build a connection! He then invited me to give my intro, which I had prepared previously to be about 3 minutes as well. He asked some follow up questions, and I... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Nov 14, 2023 Guy was really nice, didnt make me feel super pressured but their Interview seemed to follow others experiences. Started with introductions, times (30, 60, 90, year, total) also was asked about PIC XC time, night, total PIC, multi time. Why Skywest. CRM scenario was one of the first things we dived into, pax unresponsive mid way through the flight and then wakes up after already diverting (continue to divert), 2 in 2 out, make sure you use pax as resource. Covered the typical things listed... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Nov 09, 2023 Pretty straight forward, similar to what else is listed here. Great experience overall. Started with some introductions, asked about how I got into flying, why SkyWest, what do you like to do for fun. Then technical, very short lived. Interviewer stated that he keeps the technical portion to a minimum if he can tell that you prepared - my advice, PREPARE. Study everything in the study guide on here and you'll be golden. After technical, had me read a TAF, brief an approach plate (which were... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Nov 09, 2023 Interview went so well, my interviewee was so nice and kind. We started off with jet engines and how they work (I’ve never flown a jet so they understood that) we then went on to jet engine aerodynamics critical Mach, Mach tuck, and COP and COL. we then read a metar and Taf and then went on to brief an approach plate. He asked why Skywest and asked about my life and why I’m here what are my biggest achievements etc… The interviewee made me feel good by saying I did very...

  8. Nov 09, 2023 Follow the questions on this website and use the study resources they recommend in their email. Also study Jeps if you don’t already use them. Interview was a nice guy, covered all the basics but didn’t grill me too hard on any topic. Also know the systems of current aircraft you fly (electrical, hydraulic, fuel). Good experience...

  9. Nov 09, 2023 Pretty laid back and friendly overall. Introductions, Technical, Scenario, done. All in all took about 1.5 hours. Study everything in the study guide here and you'll be fine. Make sure that you spend some time coming up with a response to "Why SkyWest?" They're looking to hire people that actually want to be there, regardless of if it's a stepping stone in your...

  10. Nov 08, 2023 Good experience overall. The interviewer treated it more like a conversation than a checkride. The topics were the same as everyone else has mentioned and I didn't experience any surprises... We started with introductions and logbook review, then the rest of the interview followed the flow of a normal flight. Required pilot documents, required aircraft documents, decode a METAR/TAF, when is an alternate required?, what weather is required at the alternate?, what is exemption 17347?,...
