The interview was very close to what others said it would be in the past. Due to the Corona Virus everything was via phone and Online. I received the prescreen interview phone call one week after my resume was submitted internally. Once you get done with that and are successful they set up the three part Skype interview/corporate presentation events. There was technical difficulties on my corporate presentation so they had to reschedule everyone for the next presentation. Right now all presentations are done on Mondays and Thursdays....

  1. Jan 21, 2023 The interview was over the phone interview I did not meet the requirements; they asked only why Atlas Air, she was really nice, she asked about my hours and if I had an accident or any... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jan 19, 2023 I attended the technical panel first. The interviewer started off by giving their experience in aviation then asked me to do the same. He established that this would be more of a discussion. Then proceeded to ask me a few questions, most of which can be found on this website. Throughout the interview he gave his personal experiences and asked for mine as well. He was very cordial and set a relaxed environment. It lasted about 45 minutes. After which I attended the HR interview. The HR... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jan 11, 2023 About a month ago I made my first application. A week later, someone from hr had reached me to arrange a phone screening. In the first week of this month we talked via Teams with only audio. I was asked a similar question as everyone did. HR asked a couple of questions about my resume and then why Atlas, what is your career goal, and availability to start. She wanted to arrange an interview date during the phone screening. I accepted the date a week later. She sent me a document for the... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jan 11, 2023 Interviews were really relaxed and on this Website, the questions helped me a lot.  After last interview I did not hear back from them for 14 days almost. I emailed them to ask my application status and 3 hours later they sent me congratulations... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Dec 14, 2022 Interview was extremely low-threat and friendly. A three person HR panel interviewed me for about 45 min via Teams. After introducing themselves, they asked about my flying career. They then asked about my familiarity with the working hours and what aircraft I'd like to fly and why. They asked me to TAAT when I used CRM to handle an in-flight emergency, and a scenario about a CA who reports for duty with alcohol on his breath. They then asked how I would transition from flying... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Dec 08, 2022 Very similar to all the interviews described previously. I wore a suit and tie, they all were in button ups with no tie. Both interviews started a few minutes early or right on time, so get on a few early. The HR interview was just as described and was a panel of 3 folks - HR, Captain and FO - mostly just a dialog about the company with questions peppered in. Why this company, what airframe, tell us about yourself, any other companies interviewing with, worst day in aviation, how will... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Dec 07, 2022 I interviewed for the pathways position. It was a super inviting experience. Everyone was very positive. Even if I don’t get the job the interview was one of the best id had. They were very welcoming and actively trying to hire from my perspective.  The rest of the questions seemed to relate to this study guide fairly well. The techno portion is not as in-depth as examples on this sight because you are not handed a packet for a planned flight... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Dec 07, 2022 The whole interview process was excellent. I heard from them within 24 hours of submitting my resume, the phone screen happened in two days thereafter. It was very relaxed. Why did I want to be a pilot, any incident/accidents on my record etc. I got the feeling that their background check is very thorough so best to be honest if there are any. I was asked to pick a date for my interview as per my availability. The tech interview was before the HR interview. Both were done by an extremely... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Dec 01, 2022 As others have stated, study the information attached to Atlas on here (HR, Tech, etc) for an idea of what they will ask. Also, follow the directions in the emails they will send - how to upload docs, employee info you must fill out and what to expect. (DL/ATP/Medical front & back - how to dress, etc) HR was conducted by two pilots whom worked at Atlas for the bulk of their career. It was more of a chat and discussion than direct questioning. A couple of classic HR questions were... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Nov 30, 2022 Such a great experience overall. I got an email to set up the initial phone screening about 2 days after uploading my documents to the portal (I hadn’t even finished and submitted the application yet). The phone screening was really straight forward. She asked a couple of TMAAT questions and then just a lot of the standard generic HR questions. She also spent a lot of time just talking about details of the company and hiring process. After 2 days, she called me back to set up the... Continue reading this interview experience

    (Hired at Atlas Air)

    Was insightful. I didn’t get any questions in my interview that weren’t already covered on aviation interviews
