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. Jun 28, 2022 Very professional and friendly. 7 interviewees, 4 of us given CJOs day of interview. Told that even if we didn’t get a CJO day of, we would go to a review board and possibly get hired after. If you get to the lobby with the wide body models, you’re probably hired! (One of us was called away while we were waiting— possible paperwork issue but he didn’t get day of CJO) According to AA they DO weight the online skills assessment, so take the time to practice. They... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jun 22, 2022 Submitted an app late last year. Updated app and resume weekly.  A week ago - email invite to provide more info and select interview date. Once that was complete, another email arrived requesting a zoom interview for admin. 2 days later - zoom admin interview 30 minutes-ish. This week - in-person interview in Ft. Worth. 1 hour at the table. CJO in hand 45 minutes later. Urinalysis and fingerprints that day. Everything else in the experiences and questions is the same. No new...

  3. Jun 21, 2022 Great experience. Everything you read on this site is spot on from the process, interview experience, and questions, and finally to the important part, receiving your CJO. Best of luck to you all. Excited to now be a part of the American Airlines... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jun 21, 2022 The process has been described many times. It’s as expected. Actual interview lasted about 50 minutes. Very conversational. To me it seems they pick up on if you will be a fit or not quickly. Asked a few tmaat and wwyd questions within chatting as if we were at the layover restaurant. Just through conversation they fully understood why I was there and wanted to come to AA. They did not press me much on why AA or ask me about the other interviews I had scheduled. I would say just... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 21, 2022 Everything in here is very accurate. Everyone involved at American wants you to feel comfortable and relaxed. Two Captains conducted my interview and they were very easy to talk to. Just try to relax and share your experiences based on the questions presented. They are not trying to trick you. They just want to see that you're competent and personable. Very good...

  6. Jun 21, 2022 We signed a letter of confidentiality with regard to the questions asked which I won’t violate. The questions I was asked already exist on this site. They’re friendly and just want to see how your pilot brain ticks, and if they’d like to sit next to you on the flight deck. Be yourself, be honest, and let your personality show through if you have one. Everything from the zoom HR interview to the in person experience was low key, conversational and enjoyable as any experience... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jun 07, 2022 Questions and gouges on here were spot on. I used prep as well. They really make you feel relaxed. Felt more like a conversation than interview but very professional. 6 in my group and 4 of got cjo. The other two seemed to have some paperwork... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. May 31, 2022 TMAAT question. (view the study guide of this website).  got the LAX - PHL over rocky mountains get rapid depressurization situation that also has been already documented here. 5 interviewers - 2 selected. I think they really wanted to hire all 5 of us. I can only guess the other 3 said something that did not mesh with company's culture or was not able to communicate the answers the interviewers were looking for. I also did a...

  9. May 25, 2022 The hotel hosts interviewers and candidates, keep in mind any person in the hotel could be your interviewer. Be a self-starter: the shuttle from the hotel to the training center won't load your bags or tell you it's leaving in 2 minutes. Once dropped off at the training center, walk in the front door. It seems obvious, but some candidates waited outside for someone to come get them. Just open the door and say hello to the security team. They will have you sign in, stow your bags (all of...

  10. May 24, 2022 The American Airlines pilot interview in Ft Worth was a very straightforward, no nonsense process and an overall pleasure. The day started for me at 820am when I caught the shuttle from the  DFW South Hotel for the American Airlines Training Center. My 'show time' for logbook collection was 845am and myself and another interviewee were given that time while others' times varied by 15-20 mins or so. There were 7 people total in my interview group (2 with a mil flying background and 5... Continue reading this interview experience
