I sent my app to the email address listed on the website along with a cover letter. Approximately 2 weeks after that I received an email stating I was selected for an interview for the Part 121 Caravan Captain position. I called Empire and talked to the head of HR. She was very nice and set me up for an interview time. We talked about the company and why I would like to be part of a small company such as Empire. She asked some non-detailed questions about flying and my experience. She also asked what I thought my biggest weakness would be reported as from crews I have flown with in the military. The rest of the... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Jun 16, 2022 I submitted an application through the Empire Airlines careers page as soon as I saw the opening for the base I was interested in. It has come to my attention that a new round of recruiting will be happening and that I should take the opportunity to apply since I was interested in the Caravan Captain position for a few years. The initial contact was made through the phone, by an aviation recruiter Douglas, about 2 weeks after I submitted my application. The conversation was brief, about 10...

  2. Jun 01, 2022 Overall, the process was very smooth and pleasant. It started out with a short 10-minute phone interview going over my flight experience and a few HR questions.   After that I scheduled a date for my in-person interview. They initially offered for me to conduct my interview within 3 days, but had dates up to 2 weeks out. They flew me out the night before and paid for a night in a hotel that was right across the street from the Mall of America. The next day myself and 2 other...

  3. Mar 22, 2022 The recent reports of the process are pretty spot on. I had three calls. The first was from the recruiter with what I believe was a "feel me out" kind of thing. The 2nd was a formal HR interview (also with the recruiter). The third was a Teams interview with the Chief Pilot and the Recruiter together. The Recruiter call was an official get to know one another type of thing. Very relaxing 45 minute call. Some history questions (personal and professional). The Chief Pilot...

  4. Aug 10, 2021 The Hr interview was fairly standard.  Latter half of the HR interview was scenario based. The final interview involves the chief pilot, someone from administration and the recruiter. The primary portion of this interview was conducted by the chief pilot.  They asked if I had any questions for them and that was it. Interview was okay, the chief pilot was a real nice guy.  (view the study guide of this... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. It was a phone interview. I did not have to go to them. Hired as a captain on the ATR. HR asked the questions. Cheif pilot really just told me about the job. Very laid back and actually fun. They are very nice. All the stuff people have written about the question asked are correct, as far as HR goes... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. My interview consisted of a single phone interview with the HR lead. Her questions were the stock type questions HR would ask for hiring for any position. She was not a pilot and only asked one question that was even somewhat related to flying and the point of it wasn't really to gauge aviation knowledge or experience. The interviewer seemed only semi-engaged in the conversation and the feel of it to me was that she was just going through the motions. The HR rep told me that she was...

  8. What I read previously was very good and accurate. The interview was with the ATR Chief Pilot. very nice guy. the interview was on the basic get to know you stuff and nerve racking experiences that you may have had in the past and how you handled them. IE Icing situations. be persistent. I almost lost my opportunity to interview because of communication problems on my end. The simulator is very pitch sensitive. You have to demonstrate proficiency at NDB approaches. the sim is set up... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. I submitted my application for Empire specifically for the Oahu FO position in the "Ohana" startup.  I received an email about 3 weeks later inviting me to schedule a telephone interview on a first come, first serve basis.  I called back and spoke with Belinda (HR) to schedule the first available interview a few days later.  I studied up on all the questions found in this website and they were spot on: What do I know about Empire, Why do I want to work here, describe...

  10. The phone interview lasted about 50 minutes which was with the  CP and HR. The usual questions for a phone interview these days. Why Empire? What makes a good captain? What would your FO's say about you? Some TMAAT questions.    I was invited to  the computer based sim and written test. Pretty easy questions, decode a metar and pirep, lost com, compass locator service volume, approach lights , TFR, CO, hypoxia and hyperventilation... Continue reading this interview experience

    Best site ever if you’re looking for a pilot position. Watching the trends with each applicant getting hired (or not) was an education in and of itself. The guides are spot on. It’s a one stop shop for preparation.
