Interview as previously stated. 2 Day process in Dallas, first day was the PST (which is now being given in LAX and online as an option). I don’t care what anyone says, there is no way to prepare for the PST. It’s broken into 6 parts, 4 of which are timed. There is no such thing as doing well on the PST, it uses machine learning. The better you do, the harder it gets, especially for the math portion. The best preparation you can do for the PST is get a full nights rest and not have any distractions like hunger or your phone buzzing while you take it. Be...

  1. Sep 27, 2022 Nothing much to add to what has been described before. All the posts I have read here is were accurate. Pick up by shuttle from the hotel, check in and collect visitor IDs from front desk. Give your logbooks and show original documents (already requested for you to bring originals by email prior to interview date), go to the theater (very inspiring), meet with a pilot that will answer any questions you might have, go to the DC3 and Wait to be called for the 1 on 1. All in all they go above... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Sep 21, 2022 An amazing experience. As advertised. If you are completely honest, humble and eager to work for AA you got the job. I am over the moon excited about this great opportunity. Great people they truly want to hire you. But please follow the emails instruction. You must show up with logbooks. You need to upload all your documents to the website as discussed in the emails. Good... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Sep 20, 2022 This was by far the most relaxed interview I've ever had. Upon receiving the invite, you immediately schedule your in-person interview date and upload a plethora of documents in new tabs on "Pilot Credentials". On the site, you also take a behavior test. Two weeks prior to the in-person interview, an email from HR asks you to schedule an Admin interview on Zoom one week in advance. This one is laid-back, but come prepared to answer technical questions. Although the interviewer... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Sep 20, 2022 Arrived at AA with other applicants on shuttle from hotel. Everyone at American is friendly helpful and incredibly welcoming. Check in, get guest IDs, drop off bags. Keep log books with you and wait in Pilot Recruitment lounge area. Drop off logbooks and get physical copies of documents verified. Then the group is escorted to the C.R. Smith Museum to watch a promotional/PR video in the auditorium. Following the video a pilot will give a quick brief on pilot hiring, aircraft orders and... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Sep 14, 2022 Really laid back interview, felt like they were just trying to get to know me. I had the question about swapping runways at JFK, the rapid depressurization while flying LAX to PHL. The last question was about unhappy passengers waiting on their gate checked luggage as you are getting off the... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Sep 13, 2022 The gouge on this website is spot on. First part of interview was via Zoom about 15-20 mins few days prior face to face. Day prior they airline you to DFW and provide hotel. First part of F2F logbook review. They ask you to update your medical or other missing items on your app if you miss one. Short tour around museum and 20mins movie about AA culture. After that about 15-20 mins chat with line CA where u can ask questions. F2F portion: 2 line pilots CA and FO. About 45-60 mins 5-6... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Sep 13, 2022 I want to start off by saying that I did not get a CJO on the spot, but I did move on to the review board. This is 100% my fault. I went in with a professionally printed/bound version of my electronic logbook. I spent a lot of time and money trying to make it neat and presentable a few years back, but American really wants everything you have. After a week of searching the house and multiple storage units, we did find them and I was able to get them overnighted, so I am waiting to hear. I... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Aug 31, 2022 Great experience! The process flows as others have described. Make sure your information is up-to-date (availability date, medical, etc). Otherwise they will ask you to update it real-time. Started interview process at 10:30am and was walking out the door about 3:30 after completing the Drug Testing and Fingerprinting process with the on-site CJO offer. Was asked very similar questions provided here. The 2 scenarios were LGA-BOS with winter weather at both, non-ILS approach and landing at... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Aug 31, 2022 The interview experience was, as others have described it, very cordial and welcoming. American Airlines really went out of their way to make all of us feel WANTED and WELCOME. The format was the same as expected. The day starts with turning in paperwork and logbooks. MAKE SURE YOU BRING ALL OF YOUR ORIGINAL LOGBOOKS. I think we might have lost a candidate or two at step 1, because they didn't have the ORIGINALS. I was a bit worried, because my first logbook (started in 1994) was...

  10. Aug 31, 2022 Everything is as advertised on here. HR portion was very straight forward. I’m person interview in Dallas was an amazing experience. They really are excited to showcase their company and do a great job selling it. My one-on-one portion of the interview involved several TMAAT questions. One being on final at Burbank, you fly through a cloud, what do you do? The other was about a time my integrity was challenged. That one I found hard to answer but you are allowed to ask them to answer... Continue reading this interview experience
