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 22, 2022 Started with introductions, then ATP mins and total time I have. Then we went into technical questions, weather, TAF,/metar reading do we need an alternate. 1-2-3 rule, 800-2, 600-2 for alternate, 17347 exemption. Talked airplane systems, talked hydraulic system for my plane (piper warrior), then asked me about the fuel system. Then continued on with a CRM scenario. Then question/answers. The gouge prepares you very... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Nov 17, 2022 Interviewer showed up right on time. Interviewer was very nice and made it a very relaxed interview. Started with introductions and then went through current hours (TT, PIC, XC, Inst., Night, 30 days, 90 days, R-ATP Qualifications). Next we jumped into the technical portion where it pretty much consisted of everything in the gouge. Swept wing aero, circuit breakers, fuel system from a King Air, Exemption 17347, Derived alternate, Jepp arrival and approach plates. Then we went on to HR...

  3. Nov 16, 2022 2.0 hour interview, started with intros and talked about the company schedule and more about "a day in the life" as a pilot. Interviewed with an ERJ FO who really liked their job. Talked about hours so have those handy as mentioned in other reports here 30/60/90 day times as well as a plan for whatever else you need. Talked about turbine engine, some airport signage, briefed Jep plate, Metar and Taf, holding entry off MA and airspeed in holding and also swept wing stuff. Very low...

  4. Nov 15, 2022 Very brief interview, began with flight times in the last 30, 90, 365 days. My interviewer was a current CRJ FO and was very clear on getting right into it and if things went well it would be brief. Began with a general introduction from each of us of about 2-3 minutes, followed by discussion on CRM. No scenarios, just TMAAT I used CRM and how would I define it, how would I define professional in aviation, what is my greatest weakness in flying. Technical: asked me to teach about alternate...

  5. Nov 10, 2022 Generally the same as other interview experiences on here, but there were a couple of questions that I didn't quite nail. (view the study guide of this website).   Emergency scenario (medical situation with a passenger), I explained the "2 in 2 out" calls, declare emerg, land as soon as practical, make sure FA has everything they need, ask for medical professionals among the pax, but don't forget you can use the radios to contact a doctor from up front and relay to FA...

  6. Nov 10, 2022 I had a great interview. As mentioned by others - nothing beyond the gouge. The interviewer was very professional and complimented me throughout the process. End of the interview- he mentioned I will be a good fit for them and he is looking forward to seeing me on the line. I was very pumped up and excited that the first step in my dream to career switch was becoming a reality soon. But, I received an email the next Monday saying I was not selected. I have no clue what could have gone... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Nov 09, 2022 I was interviewed by a SkyWest FO. A SkyWest Captain was reviewing the interview, so she listened in on the interview. I logged in about 10 minutes before the interview started to confirm lighting and sound was adequate. I had all my times ready to go - TT, PIC, XC, PIC XC, Night, Instrument, ME, TurboJet, last 30, 60, 90, 12 months times. I also had my radio license, FAA license, medical, and passport ready. We started with intro's and then went into logbook review and I had to show... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Nov 09, 2022 Overall, very relaxed interview. The woman who did my interview was a CRJ captain she was super energetic and made the interview fun and easy. Pretty much went spot on with all the interviews on here. Just study the gouges and you'll do... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Nov 09, 2022 Started with introductions, logbook review then went into HR questions (TMAAT). Then went into technical portion, basically questions from the gouge, didn’t get any questions wrong. This website was very helpful. The interview was about... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Nov 08, 2022 Interviewer was a current line pilot who had a similar background to mine. First half of the interview was like most other where we discuss my background and experience, a few TMAAT questions and questions about specific occurrences in my background. Technical portion was reasonably extensive, but if you study what they tell you prior you'll be fine. It was similar to a check ride, in that I mentioned something that I didn't know a ton on, and the interviewer did the classic "well since... Continue reading this interview experience
