I interviewed via Skype which was a new experience for me. The HR portion was straight forward and began with a PowerPoint presentation of the company. Then we went into the Q&A about me and my background. They just want to know who you are. You do have to be Superman or Superwoman. Just be yourself and relax. Typical TMAT questions. The technical was also straight forward. I was given a metar and taf for KAVL. I was then given an ETA in local time for KAVL and asked questions. You’ll have to convert to Zulu time and decipher the TAF. The answer... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Apr 08, 2021 Had a preliminary screening by hr. After that was sent some study material to review for my hr/technical interview. (Read the notes on this site and study the packet they give you). Hr interview was very relaxed and simple questions you would assume to be asked, crm, handle stress, who are you, why do you want to fly with us. Technical was not bad. Know your Jepsen charts, explain the taf and metar. Do you need an alternate. 1-2-3 rule. Understand 91.175. Explain a few systems on your... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Apr 02, 2021 Interview was very straightforward. HR portion is basically a conversation. No trick questions. Technical was also very straightforward. A couple system questions on your current aircraft. Memorize all the FO call outs and know how to read/brief various instrument departures, arrivals, and approaches. Overall, interview lasted about 45 minutes and I was offered a position about 2 hours... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Mar 30, 2021 Currently, once an applicant has been scheduled to interview, they must submit to what the recruited called an online "mini-ATP" exam consisting of 40 questions in 45 minutes. The applicant is given a maximum of two opportunities, if necessary, to pass the exam with a 70% or higher score. Upon scheduling the interview, the recruiter emailed an "interview prep" document containing instructions for the virtual meeting interview conducted over Microsoft Teams that included...

  4. Mar 23, 2021 Very nice and relaxed interview process. No trick questions or anything unexpected. It started with a quick presentation about CommutAir and was asked if I had any questions. We started the HR portion immediately after. They asked about previous flight and work experience.  (view the study guide of this website).  That was pretty much it for the HR, we then did the technical portion. Started with a few simple questions and then talked about a system on my current aircraft. Then we... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Mar 23, 2021 The current interview profiles here are accurate. Very genuine recruiters that seem to be pulling for the applicant and the interview process is friendly and laid back. One HR rep (my recruiter) and one "evaluator" pilot interviewed me via video conference and the call lasted less than an hour. The interview started with a company presentation. Next was the HR panel of questions, be prepared to talk about failures or issues listed there.   Be prepared and think... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Mar 05, 2021 Interview started off with a presentation followed by seeing if you had any questions. Pilot and HR were very calming and friendly, definitely just a conversation about yourself and what your passions are initially. Followed by how you work with others and how would others describe you. The technical covered all the CALLOUTS for the FO, along with scenarios of emergencies and how you would deal with them. Lastly, we finished with what flaps do and descent calculations. Was contacted shortly... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Mar 04, 2021 The interview experience was very pleasant and professional. The interaction lasted about 1hr - started with a PowerPoint presentation, HR interview, then technical questions. The resources available on this platform were very useful, but being very familiar with the package the recruiter sent prior to the interview was key! It really helped to "chair fly" the call-outs and practice it as if it was a real flight, making decisions and assessments as you would do in real time (the...

  8. Mar 01, 2021 Know the sample questions on this website and you will do great. HR and Pilot were professional and very friendly. Technical was more a conversation about decision making, and less so what does this symbol mean on this chart. Know the call outs they send you. Interview was about 40 minutes. Looks like an exciting time to be at... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Feb 26, 2021 In my opinion, the interview went less stringent than what was posted. If your interview is anything like mine, if you read other interviews and what prepare for the questions, then you should do well. My interview lasted about 40-45 minutes. I had a handful of HR questions, all were from the list provided. Only one TMAT question.  I think CommutAir is getting in a bind for pilots; they are starting flights into Mexico next month and they need to expand their pilot group. They fly the...

  10. Feb 19, 2021 Experience was super friendly and relaxed. Right off the bat i will say if you prepare well you will do great. Start off by reading all the questions and know them well and interview reviews to get a mental picture of what could be asked, they are all spot on. The interview begin with some company slides and basic company information, reserve, bases etc. Following that I was asked basic HR questions (from the list) and next came the technical portion from a very nice pilot! Know the basics... Continue reading this interview experience
