    Apr 10, 2024 All as expected. Nothing to add from this site. Two great guys on my panel. First time in my career I wish the three of us could go for a beer after the interview. Overall the whole process was very professional. No rocket science here, just be yourself and show them you would be a fun crew member to work with and a good representative of the AA...

    Apr 10, 2024 I applied on the website then went to NGPA, got a stand-by meet and greet, then was called that day with an invitation to interview on property. My entire experience was almost exactly as other reports have described with no surprises. Study the questions in the guide and be prepared to answer from your own unique experience.  Study American specifics. My fellow interviewees were great people to share the experience with. All interviewers seemed relaxed and wanted to get to know us.... Continue reading this interview experience

    Apr 02, 2024 Very friendly indeed, exactly the questions posted here and given in a casual environment. One new question, (view the study guide of this website).  The conversation then went into more detail about what environmental landing conditions do to LPA. Nothing too tricky. Other than that the usual TMAY and then a couple of scenarios including depress over the... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Interview sample 4

    Mar 27, 2024 Really laid back and a good experience. All the pilots doing the interviews make you feel very comfortable and help with the nerves. TMAAT you had to make a decision at work and what was your thought process behind your decision? Tell me about someone you consider a mentor. 20 min into a flight and you have to shut down engine what’s your thought process? How can pilots help promote and grow the...

  5. Interview sample 5

    Mar 27, 2024 The gouge on this website is exactly what was asked during my interview. Just look over the material and have some TMAAT scenarios planned ahead of time. The whole experience was very easy going and welcoming. Make sure all logbooks are totaled and have no errors. Also make sure to bring all the required paperwork. After my interview I was told that I was going to the review board. They did not tell me why but I suspect it was because of my lack of TPIC. I heard back a few days later with a...

  6. Interview sample 6

    Mar 27, 2024 Everything on this website was pretty accurate. I did get one question that was not in here, I'll add it to the list for those reviewing. This is by far the most relaxed interview I've had, as others mentioned, you are being evaluated but it was more or less a few pilots talking. I was asked apx 7 ish questions, half of them were TMAAT and the other half were WWYD. Interview itself was about 45 minutes. If they are laughing and seem like they are having a good time, I'd say you're doing... Continue reading this interview experience

    Mar 06, 2024 Very straight forward interview they definitely care about the application process. It is all checked a few more times after you enter the building. They do the logbook review and check your records before getting started process lasts about 30 mins. You're given a tour of the museum then watch the 20 minute video and after you start the interview. It's more of a conversation but keep your Star method in your tell me about a time stories. The Captains I interviewed with were awesome. we... Continue reading this interview experience
