Read Page 1 ... My interview was on Tuesday. It consists of and HR followed by a Tech or vice versa. They done back to back. I did my HR first. Know the question WHY ATLAS? down cold. Just like memory items and limitations for those of us with 121 experience. My friend interviewed the previous week and had the more standard HR questions. Mine seemed be geared more towards the 747 and its schedule.   They also asked other questions, (view the study guide of this website).  I was offered the job the following day. The tech interview was... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Mar 14, 2023 Over Great experience. No questions out of left Field. I went through the study guide on this website several times, and studied the material that was sent to me before my interview. Started with the Tech portion first and it went really well, it was with a retired 747 captain. He only asked questions about the material that was sent. It was based on a flight from Alaska to LAX. taxi chart, metar and taf, high prog chart. then an approach into LAX. study the questions on here, and what they...

  2. Mar 01, 2023 I was asked to read a Metar for RJAA nothing complex you should know the abbreviations like 1CU030. Asked questions about V speeds. Is V1 affected by downslope or upslope. Where is 0degree north 0degree south. Asked about a lot of questions regarding Apu on the aircraft I currently fly like Is It constant speed or variable speed working principle of Apu how do you start your engines without Apu.

  3. Feb 28, 2023 Be honest. Be yourself. Study the material provided. My impression is that studying and understanding the provided questions and material tell them about the person beyond the resume'. Getting to the Tech and HR interviews indicates they can hire you. How you interview determines if they will. Your preparation makes a... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Feb 15, 2023 Interview experience summaries on this site are spot-on. I started with Tech Panel (retired 747 Capt)--gave a quick intro, then right into the items from the tech packet--definitions first, then one or two questions from each plates/charts. Tech portion took the full hour since many of the questions led to discussions on similar or other topics--I guarantee you'll actually learn something from the tech interviewer (mine probably had 20-30K+ hours of global flight ops experience). Don't be... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Feb 15, 2023 The technical interview was first and began with introductions from a retired 747 CA from the training department (former E-170 instructor and military background). Then followed several questions about an aircraft system on the E-175 (my current aircraft) of the interviewers choice. I prepped mostly for hydraulics, electrical, bleed air, and APU but was asked about the Anti-Ice/De-Ice system. He asked more questions on this system than expected and was surprised how in depth we got. It... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Feb 14, 2023 I submitted my application and received an email to schedule an phone screening within a week. During the phone screen the questions were very basic yes/no questions. They asked why I want to work at Atlas, check ride failures... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Feb 07, 2023 My experience mirrored what others have been sharing here already. There were no surprises or gotchas. The study guide and gouges given here are exactly what they will give back to you. I started with the Tech panel with a retired 747 Captain and we had an easy flowing chat about my background and what I have been doing until now. He asked how many hours I flew in the last year and when my last flight was. He picked an aircraft sub-system (hydraulic) and asked me about different parts and...

  8. Feb 07, 2023 Interview was very non threatening. They will expect you to answer questions based on the experience you have to this point. I do not have international experience so they didn't expect me to be familiar with those ops. However, having knowledge of SLOP for example will show them you have studied and prepared the best you could have for the interview. Have you general aviation story ready to tell them about, your "journey". They want to see you are able to learn so make sure you... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jan 26, 2023 This gouge was very helpful and this is what was exactly asked during the HR & technical interviews. The interview process was relaxed and they make you feel welcome and calm. Took them a month to get back to me after sending two follow-up emails. They said that I have passed all the interviews and that I have been placed in a hiring pool for when class dates become available. Still disappointed that I didn’t get an exact answer yet and that I have to wait further for a yes or... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. 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
