  • Read Page 1 ... I believe there were a couple of others that I can’t recall. Bottom line is I walked out relaxed and confident afterwards. The interviewers are interactive and respond to you (you will get blank stares, however). Try not to ramble during silence. Broke for an hour lunch, then the testing started at 1230. First test is the cognitive portion. There are multiple ways to study for this. Overall, I felt this was very easy. Second test is the psych test. Just be yourself and answer the first thing that comes to mind. Third, was the knowledge test. After seeing some of the candidates come out during the morning session with deflated looking egos, I was nervous for it. But overall, I felt very prepared through my study materials and this site and took about half of the 60 minutes allotted time. The last 30 minutes is the worst part as the Captain  comes out and calls your name if you did not get it. Your heart will beat out of your...

    It's true, it's a friendly atmosphere. However it is still a stressful day - be ready to be on the ball from 0630 to 1530, following directions to a 'T'. Otherwise be confident that if you have answers to the questions on this site, you'll be ready for the...

    Everything is as described by other candidates. They told me a total of 8 questions were going to be asked, 3 adjusted to your specific resume and 5 is pre-determined for the entire interview group for the day. I feel like I was asked 3 questions from each panel. There were 3 people in the room, 2 assist chief pilots and 1 HR. They didn't ask me any of the questions I prepared for.  At least 3 hypothetical questions (what would you do if...). Use the TEAM model. Anticipated vs...

    Everything on this site is spot on. Try to relax, even though you won't be able to. Everyone there is super nice and inviting. You get the feeling they really want to hire you, so just be honest, be yourself, and I'm sure you'll be fine. Try to eat something because its a long...

    The format was similar to what others have posted. Interview starts promptly at 645am. Documents/logbooks collected first. Then either interview or MMPI first. Break in between, before doing the other. 2 WWYD, 1 TMMAT.  The rest were questions specific to my application. Everyone was nice, and very professional. CJOs around noon. 7 out of 9 were hired. Out by...

    The accounts on here are quite accurate. Everyone on the Delta team was awesome: very friendly and they make a concerted effort to put everyone at ease as much as possible. The first step is the document collection, do not mess this up. They tell you exactly what you need to bring. Don’t end your interview before it even begins. The interview consists of the panel interview and the MMPI. The order in which these are done depends on which group you are in. Then there’s a break for...

    Exactly as described from this site just about every question I was asked was on this gouge so it’s preparing how to answer the questions that’s more important then what they actually are. Wasn’t asked why Delta so important that answers worked into an answer or the...

    Everything study-wise on the website here is fairly accurate. They do a great job tailoring your questions to your own personal experience level. Wonderful group of people who want to see you succeed and are rooting for all of the interviewees to get CJOs. Delta pilot selection does a excellent job explaining how everything that needs to be done throughout the day. Definitely practice using the “Situation, Action, Result” method to telling your stories, that will make things...

    Eight of us were at the interview, all with varying airline backgrounds. We all showed up around 6. They split us into 2 groups. One group took MMPI, and the other did the interview. We then had a 30-minute break, and then we came back and swapped. After that, we had another 40-minute break for lunch. We came back and then they quietly announced who did NOT get the job. Three people were called. The remainder of us then got CJOs and started the remaining tasks, including fingerprints, drug...

  11. The gouge was actually very accurate and helpful. It was definitely legitimate. Just the descriptions of what to expect from people who very recently went though it was a huge stress reliever. Thank you for this service. It helped me get my dream job at Delta.
