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. Jul 16, 2021 Very short and easy interview. HR asked 6 or 7 questions. One was "tell me something about yourself I can't get from your resume." The technical was relaxed but lasted a little longer. Went through a METAR and TAF, then asked if we could shoot an approach at a certain time. Briefed an approach plate. Asked about hydraulic system in previous aircraft. Asked about fuel system in previous aircraft. Asked how many miles out and at what rate we would descend if we need to lose 20,000ft....

  2. Jul 14, 2021 The interview was very relaxed, taking less than an hour. It began with going over the callouts and speed provided in the packet sent prior to the interview. We went over different scenarios including failures and how to react to them. When to descend on an arrival, and the approximate rate of descent. I received a call later that day with a CJO. Know the callouts and speeds they send... Continue reading this interview experience

Read call outs provided for takeoff etc. Couldn’t find any info on the ATP test before interviewing, that was a... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jun 22, 2021 I did the direct entry Captain interview. The interview was probably 30-40 minutes. Starts off with the basic HR “tell me a time when….” Then a pilot asks you some technical questions. Instrument procedures (difference between DH and MDA, when do you need an alternate, how do you choose the alternate etc). Also was asked general emergency scenarios and what steps would I take in that situation. Know what the different V speeds mean and their... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 17, 2021 Most of the HR and Technical interview was spot on with the interview prep questions. I was given a situation in the technical that involved a compound emergency and how I would respond. It involved an engine fire indication in conjunction with a rapid depressurization. (view the study guide of this website).   Overall, the interviews were very conversational and... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jun 04, 2021 I did the Accelerated Captain interview. Be prepared to think like a 121 Captain. Follow the study guide, the questions are 95% on point, and then expand on them. Be prepared to be asked scenarios during the technical portion.  They want to know what you are going to do, in a general sense, when something goes wrong. Review ALL your rules of thumb, including how to figure out rate of descent from speed. They know you are nervous, and they are OK with that. If you don't know an...
