  1. Jan 12, 2022 The first step of this is to show up to your interview with the intention of having an amazing first impression. Dress in business formal attire (solid colour suite prefferably black) on point shoes and a clean cut appearance. Once the interview began I was asked a series of questions on a personal level in order to get to know me better as a person. The interview was held by 2 active Pilots followed by a representative from HR. Some technical questions where asked and formulated to obtain... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Went to the Air Canada interview recently. There are several different things that are done. They could be in different orders as there are several candidates that are doing the near day long process. The first part was an over 500 question psychological test on a computer that asks all kinds of questions unrelated to flying. They are more personality type questions that seem to come up more than once sometimes to see if you answer the same way both... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. I first learned that I had been granted an interview with Air Canada when I received an email from Cathy Vining of Air Canada Pilot Recruitment. The email itself contained quite a bit of bold/underlined/coloured font. It closely resembled spam, so if you're anticipating this email anytime soon, keep an eye out! Contained within the email was a list of available interview dates/times. I had been told to pick one on a Monday or Tuesday, mid-morning, as this is when the interviewers tend to be...

  5. The interview seems to be a lot more comprehensive than was posted on here (things change quickly, as the competition is great). I will only mention the things that seem to have changed. 2 people were involved in the interview.. one "HR" person and one pilot (a 767 sim instructor). They each took turns asking about 8 questions each (they had about 3 rounds each!). The interview was over an hour (close to 1 hour 15 mins). No technical questions at all, just "HR", crew relations,... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Air Canada Jazz - Dash-8 and CRJ operation - 1500 pilots on staff. Excerpt from my company site about a week ago: As many of you are aware, not only are we recalling all furloughed pilots this year, but we are also in a position to accept pilot applications from outside the company. The extent and timing of any future pilot hiring is still dependent on aircraft acquisition, and the commercial plan. Many of you have already forwarded resumes of friends or acquaintances to us for... Continue reading this interview experience
