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... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Mar 23, 2023 Gouge was right on. I was missing some of the paperwork that they require. I the wasn't too worried about it since the missing paperwork was military records from over 20 years ago and I figured that would be easily enough explained. Since the rest of the interview went smoothly, I'm guessing that was the reason I didn't get the job. Overall everyone was friendly and tried to make everyone comfortable with the...

  2. Mar 22, 2023 The previous gouge is accurate. I wasn't asked anything that isn't here. There aren't any new or trick questions. The pilot selection team were great and made every effort to make us as relaxed as possible. They truly wanted to hire us all. They told us the key was to be yourself and tell your stories (i.e. be authentic) and don't deliver canned answers. I used a service and this site for the gouge. Both were helpful, but personally, I wouldn't have gotten through it without help to develop... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Mar 21, 2023 Gouges on here are very spot on. Used this website for almost all of my studying. Long day but have multiple breaks. I did the MMPI first then the Interview and then the Psych after given the CJO. Very brief interview with a few TMAAT, my intro and background, and a couple what would you do questions. Everyone is very friendly and the process is smooth. Go in and be yourself. You have already done the hard... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Mar 14, 2023 Excellent experience at HQ. All the gouges here were very accurate and helpful. They offered CJO's to 100% of the candidates who interviewed on my day. If you're standing in the Pilot Selection lobby in the morning, they want to hire you—just follow directions and be yourself throughout the process. (They specifically stated they don't want to hear canned / interview prep answers). It was actually a pretty fun day getting to know and hangout with all the other candidates...a very...

  5. Mar 09, 2023 Delta’s interview process was very pleasant. Ms. Dorothea is full of positive energy and helps you through out the entire day long interview process. We met in the lobby at 0630 and were met by Ms. Dorothea around 0650. Shortly after, we were led back to a nice lobby which Delta has for its applicants to relax in when not completing a daily task. I completed the MMPI from 0800-0930 (567 T/F questions) and then went into the in person interview at 1000. The interview panel was two... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Mar 02, 2023 Started at 0645 on the nose. The gouges here are pretty spot on. MMPI is no problem as long as you’re honest. It’s easy to test “too perfect” so just be truthful with it. The interview itself was fairly relaxed, just a few TMAAT and WWYD. Wasn’t asked “Why Delta?” which took me by surprise. Great experience, good... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Mar 01, 2023 Be yourself. Long and slightly more rigid experience as other majors but still an overall friendly experience. Probably 40% of interview was intro and talking about resume and background questions and other 60% was traditional tmaat wwyd... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Feb 28, 2023 Day starts at 6:45, be there before 6:30 for introductions from Dorothea. She and the others in the pilot selection office are incredibly welcoming and friendly, they want to see you succeed. MMPI personality test is lengthy, just answer truthfully and you'll be fine, do not answer thinking "what does delta want me to say." Interview is relaxed with about 8 total questions. Tell me about yourself, TMAAT, WWYD scenarios, What are qualities of a great pilot compared to a good one,... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Feb 16, 2023 Previous gouges all spot on. Ms. Dorothea does not disappoint at all. Interviewed at SW, UA and this was just as an excellent experience as those. Be mindful it’s a very long day, start at 630am and go all the way until 2pm if you’re the morning group. I did MMPI, break, interview, lunch. MMPI is long and makes your eyes vibrate, answer honestly and you’ll be fine. Interview seriously just be your self. Didn’t do formal prep, questions on here helped but overall a lot...

  10. Feb 16, 2023 Day starts off at 6:30am for a 6:45am introduction. Our class was about 24 so they broke us up into 2 groups. When they called my group we took our logbooks and all paperwork into a small room. This is where they take our set 1 and set 2 paperwork. I was really stressing how to set this up. The good thing, which I wish I knew beforehand, the proctor Dorothea asks for your paperwork and helps you put it together. So she step by step instructs you how to set up set 1 and set 2. I thought it... Continue reading this interview experience
