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 29, 2023 Really solid Interview experience. Less than a day after submitting my application I got an email about a preliminary phone call interview. We went over some basic logbook stuff and why I'd like to work for Atlas and things like that. Very easygoing and a good experience. They gave me a date about 2 weeks later for a technical interview and an HR interview. Both were very well organized and enjoyable. Tech interview was with a retired 747 captain who had a lot of good advice. Just study what... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Nov 16, 2023 I got a email after few days after submitting the initial application on the portal for phone screening.

They sent you a one page summary study guide to start preparing right the way, and additional reference material for the tech interview... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Nov 09, 2023 Tech panel was fairly by the book according to the study materials that Atlas provides prior to the interview. I would certainly say that if you are desiring and aircraft like the 747 or 777 and lack oceanic experience, STUDY AT LEAST THE BASICS. The study guide they provide says that if you do not have oceanic experience they will not ask you oceanic questions... but you if you want an aircraft that commonly crosses the ocean be prepared to discuss some basics. Lat and long, position... Continue reading this interview experience

Good... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Nov 01, 2023 The interview process and gauge are as described. You first do a basic phone screening to confirm your flight hours and other simple questions about your background.

Then you will have the interviews later the same week. 1-hour Tech review where a retired 747 Captain will ask you questions from the packet they provided you with ahead of time. Know as much as possible,... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Oct 31, 2023 Overall, the interview for me was pretty much 98% of the interview reports I read here on AviationInterviews. I went back and read all of them for the last year, and it prepared me very well. The phone screen was a basic verification of your qualifications and eligibility for the position as well as why do you want to work for Atlas.

  8. Oct 26, 2023 Phone interview just confirms your time and basic work history questions, and background check questions. Technical interview was standard and was with a retired 747 captain.
