The interview was rather short and pretty relaxed for the most part. It started with an hour presentation over the company that reviewed how it was started, who runs it, company goals/plans, schedules, pay, and benefits.

The HR interview was rather simple and fast as it took only about 5 to 10 minutes. The technical portion was a bit longer and was... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  5. Apr 28, 2020 Virtual experience due to COVID-19. Phone screening, few days later online presentation, a week later HR & Tech panel interview.

Technical was easy yet don’t rely only on the reference guide they send you. Prog chart, CRM, Systems or procedures explanation, CFIT, RVSM, Holding, Rapid depressurization, MELs. It was a very pleasant... Continue reading this interview experience
