We showed and were briefed on the day's events and fingerprinted. We turned in our paperwork and the panel interviews and SBIs started immediately. I'm glad I I used a service as I felt more prepared than I otherwise would have. There interviews were definitely the toughest ones I'd had thus far in my job search. I don't feel like I rocked them but I felt like I did OK.  They provided us with lunch and we were done by 1300. There...

    Most of our group showed up at 0630. At 0700 one of the ladies from HR will come down and escort everyone up to the conference room. They didn’t provide breakfast so suggest eating something before. Everyone was very welcoming and made you feel like you really did belong there. We were giving a couple briefings on what all needed accomplished before leaving that day and on what was going to happen in the panel and SBI portions. I was one of the last to go back to either section and...

    Background: USAF KC-135, T-1 IP. Approx 2245 TT not including simulator or "other" time. Nearly all in the KC-135 and T-1.

    As advertised by other applicants. The actual interview process is highly confidential to protect its integrity. Everyone was incredibly nice and you can tell they want to hire you. The HR panel is standard. The SBI is very dynamic and they will make their expectations crystal clear in the briefing. Be professional, humble, and polite and you’ll be successful. They may not appear quite as strict in terms of paperwork prep as other airlines (Air Lines), but PLEASE do yourself a favor...
