FREE Alaska Airlines pilot interview information and gouge

The interview day was a very positive experience throughout, and I felt that the atmosphere was relaxed enough for them to really get to know the candidates. The previous gouge provided was spot-on, so I'll focus on my preparation and on the individual interview. I used an interview prep service. I felt this helped me to stay relaxed and helped avoid possible pitfalls. My attire was a fitted suit. I brought all of my logbooks... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Sep 24, 2021 They are quite transparent about the interview process, which is exactly as described by other reviewers. What I'd like to add to it all is that if you have an interview in the near future, there will be a pilot seat available for you. There will be no competition between you and the next applicant. The interview is all about you and how you would fit the company culture. They are tired of over prepared applicants, and will say many times that they want to get to know your genuine self....

  2. Sep 23, 2021 I interviewed with approximately 15 total applicants. The majority were part 121 regional airline pilots (all captains along with a few check airmen) as well as a couple of LCC pilots and few part 135 and 91 pilots. All the traveling candidates met in the lobby of the hotel and went over together. After signing in we were taken to a large lecture room and shown a presentation about Alaska from its founding to present. All of the base chief pilots were there as well as numerous HR personnel....

  3. Sep 21, 2021 Flew in from Orlando the day before. They make you stay at the Aloft close to the airport. Suggest walking over the day before to know where the interview will be at. It’s a 5 minute walk but I was the only person who knew where to go the day of the interview. Everyone was standing in the lobby like lost ducklings with suits waiting for hotel shuttle. I walked over and invited a few people to follow me. When you enter the building you check in and wait in the lobby. Perfect opportunity to... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Sep 21, 2021 All recent submissions are spot on. It was a great interview process that focused on your career up to this point and why you wanted to work for Alaska Airlines. Day started with an hour of introductions with the chief pilots and a presentation on the history and projected growth of the company. Group interviews are next. Talk about yourself. Tell about your greatest accomplishment in the last year or what you consider to be the most unique thing about you. On the spot TMAAT question. Next... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Sep 20, 2021 Exactly as described in the other interview experiences listed this month. A percentage of the questions from list provided were used and the day of process is exactly as the most recent... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Sep 02, 2021 They fly you in the night before. Hotel is aloft across the street from the Hub. Took shuttle over with other applicants at around 8:30am. Check in, head upstairs to meet the interview team (all the chief pilots) and hear a presentation about Alaska history and projected growth plans. They then split the group in half and proceed with the group interview process. Two chief pilots and two talent acquisition people. Introduce yourselves. Everyone spoke for about 1-2min on their experience and... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Aug 27, 2021 After they’re presentation, we were split into 2 groups of 9 with a panel of 4 Alaska reps (2 chief pilots and 2 recruiters). Each person was asked to do a short intro with something that makes them unique. Then we each had to answer 1 question off of a card.  (view the study guide of this website). Then we broke for a 1hr lunch. The chief pilots joined us for lunch. Then the one-on-one interviews. Mine lasted about 30min. Several familiar TMAAT questions and 1 CRM...

  8. Aug 27, 2021 Arrived a few minutes before 9. Everyone waited in the lobby and chatted. Eventually we were called back where the CP did a presentation and introduced themselves. They let us ask questions afterwards. Then we went into group interviews. Tell me about yourself and something unique about you. Then we had to draw a question and keep it face down until it was our turn. After that was lunch followed my one on one interview. Basically just get to know you and give you a decision making scenario.... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Aug 12, 2021 Very welcoming, the gouge is spot on. The scenario was an easy one and just be sure to talk it out with your two interviewers. Most of the questions were why Alaska, and tmaat questions. Ask about accidents and incidents and any checkride failures. I got the impression checkride failure was not the end of the world and they were looking to give the opportunity to explain what happened and how you learned from...

  10. Aug 09, 2021 Recent gouges are accurate. Very relaxed atmosphere. Mostly HR type questions and the only technical stuff was scenario based and pretty simple. Overall a very enjoyable... Continue reading this interview experience
