  5. Jul 27, 2022 I submitted my application several months ago and did not formally "submit" it. I received an email asking if I would like to schedule a preliminary phone screening and moved forward with that the following week.

  8. Jul 26, 2022 Applied in April but started the interview process in July to build the 500 hours turbine time preferred to fly widebodies. Interview process was pretty straightforward as previously described from the other gouges. First off is the phone interview the first week of last month.  The recruiter will ask you questions regarding your flying background (e.g. training failures). If you have a training failure, whether it's checkride or 121, be sure to disclose it. Then afterwards, I watched... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jul 21, 2022 It was a great interview experience. First off was the phone screen. Everything that is on this website is accurate. HR just verified if I had all the necessary qualifications to get hired. I had my 1st class medical lapsed to a 2nd class, so she told me that I would need to have a current 1st class medical before I can get a job offer. Asked me why I wanted to leave my current and previous employers, availability for the class, things like that. After the phone screen I got the email invite...

  10. Jul 20, 2022 They sent me a packet that had the paperwork for the interview. The last page had a list of topics to cover, and most of them were covered. They did not require detail, only a surface knowledge of the topic. The technical started with some questions about my aircraft's electrical system and then rolled into the packet. The questions were fairly basic honestly like a lot of the other write-ups here say if you are flying professionally, either 121 or and I'm assuming 135, can read charts there...
