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. 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

  2. Nov 17, 2022 Great interview and it went incredibly well. HR was straight forward, to get to know you. Nothing stressful or out of the ordinary. I was worried about the technical portion due to the sheer volume of potential questions listed on this page, but I had an awesome retired F14/F15 pilot interview me. He made it simple and only asked me 3 questions listed in this groups bank. He asked me a few simple questions specific to fuel and why we measure fuel in pounds and how we prevent fuel from...

  3. Nov 08, 2022 As for the HR interview, it was very casual and I had a nice chatting session with Kevin and this retired 74 captain Robert. Kevin started out telling me they are experiencing training backlog right now and what will most likely happen if I get the offer and the logistic side of things. And he also asked which aircraft I would prefer to fly... I guess you only have to be yourself and stay calm. I am sure they were taking notes throughout on how I reacted on things they said to me and how I... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Nov 02, 2022 Interview like all others have noted study the question bank and no surprises. Was asked how Vmcg is... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Nov 02, 2022 Just be yourself, know your approach plates and 10-9, aka., 20-9 pages real well. All symbols and acronyms. They will send you an initial page after pre-screening, then a larger, virtual packet, around 5 pages or so, with charts. Interviewers were cordial and professional, a great company for the right fit! I wish each of you all the best, especially if you’re just starting... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Nov 02, 2022 The interview is really straightforward. Use the study guide they provided in the Tech Interview link. You will need to know all of this, be able to talk about it and recognize symbols and explain the weather. Also, make sure to use the study guide list of topics provided in your initial interview offer. There are no gothchas and if you get something wrong, let them take a moment and teach you. The HR is standard as well. TMAAT questions. If you have had any failures or have been put in... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Nov 02, 2022 This webpage was of invaluable help. All the questions on here were spot on and the interviews were conducted like described here. Overall just a very pleasant experience. The interviewers were really kind, polite and encouraging. I started filling out the online application in the middle of last month but had to save it to continue another day due to lacking documents. Before I managed to get back to it a recruiter wrote me and said he wanted to do a phone screen with me. I chose his first... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Nov 01, 2022 Study the study guide, do some research. If you can teach each page to somebody then you’ll do fine. They give you resources and basically talk through a flight from pre-flight planning to approach into destination. They seemed very friendly, interested in hiring people who want to be there, and who are competent. Two interviews HR & technical. Technical should be pretty straightforward, HR was less tell me about a time, but more traditional “why you”, “why... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Oct 26, 2022 The prior experiences listed on this site are pretty accurate and helped quite a bit. The question bank helped some for the tech, but really a bit more for the HR. For the tech interview, I was caught off guard with quite a few questions on APU's. How they run, tie into the system, implications of losing battery power while running (both for APU and main engines). The connection/req's for battery and FADEC control are significantly different than the current platform I'm on, so I butchered... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Oct 25, 2022 The study guide and interview experiences posted on this website are very accurate. All Atlas employees conducting the Technical and HR study guide were very professional and friendly and the interview felt more like a conversation than an interrogation. (view the study guide of this website).  I was asked to rank my preference for aircraft assignment. Last question I was asked is do you have any questions for us? My advice is to use this website as a guide to help prepare for the... Continue reading this interview experience

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