Group Interview: Seemed to be the normal NASA exercise reported at other interviews. All candidates had a piece of paper with instructions and first 5 mins was taken up by reading your individual instructions. Total 30 mins for the exercise you had to come up with an ideal candidate (There were 8 to choose from). All candidates had differing instructions but not contradictory. There is no right answer but will ask how you came to that conclusion. Simulator Breifing & Assessment: We were briefed by a couple of simulator instructors through the profile in more detail. (Same one sent when interview date was confirmed). This was very helpful, they said the expect you to know it but it wasn't an assessment as such. They wanted to see general raw instrument flying scan and if you were reachable. Did the first ILS, go around and the instructor took control at the level off and gave some pointers then I did one more ILS and landed. Overall great experience. I did not do real sim practice prior just a PC practice which helped alot. Tech Quiz: Overall nothing unexpected here. Typically range of questions, some PPL...

  2. Dec 05, 2022 HR - Tell us about yourself.  Childhood story, training, glamour, standards, location, benefits.  Flight Ops questions. You flew A320 and B777 – do you have a preference? It was a fairy quick interview that lasted 45 minutes. The remaining time i asked them questions about the company. I was interviewed by the HR personell and Deputy Chief pilot. (view the study guide of this website).  Very light and positive atmosphere. I dont know if i passed since there are a lot... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Dec 01, 2022 There was 1 guy from HR and another Captain from training department. Both of them were very nice and friendly. The HR guy started by asking me to introduce myself.

  6. 1. Group discussion About picking up someone to send to airspace. Nothing to hard, just do it as a team. Don’t talk too much. Better to show them you are listening to others. 2. Sim assessment Be prepared to deal with adjusting speed, altitude and heading. If you can practice on any real sim, even it costs, it would be worth. all necessary infos will be informed during briefing. 3. Tech quiz So easy. Level of ppl. No need to worry at all. If you already have some banks, just... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Day 1. Met all applicants at the first floor of company office. We received the visitor permit and went up to waiting area at the second floor of building. A woman went over the all documents for each applicant and we went to a briefing room to get started group discussion. Mostly, discussion was straight forward, NASA project. Nothing special, just remember that do not talk too much and do not act like you are a leader. Next step was different up to every applicant by their schedule...

  8. Similar experience to others that have came before. Two day interview. First day consisted of group exercise, sim, and tech quiz. The group exercise seems to be the same NASA exercise Cathay have been running for years. My advice, don’t talk too much, but talk enough. The sim is straightforward, and all they are looking for is improvement. They do not tell you if you passed or not, but we can all tell if we’re in tolerance or not. The sim was an A330 sim. There were no... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Attended assessment November 2019. As most feedback suggests and as it’s outlined in the email package sent to you, first day is group exercise, sim, technical quiz and personality quiz. If you are invited to second day it is HR/ technical interview, icao English test ($$$), HK class 1 medical. Notes: It should go without saying, but make sure you wear a suit and have a decent bag that can store the documents you have to bring in. Make sure to READ and follow the checklist carefully...
