  1. Nov 07, 2022 The experience was quite pleasant. There was a panel of three and it started with an introduction about the company and what they are looking for. Then it went in to the questioning; overall, for them to invest money into your training, they need to know that you have a desire to teach and are willing to stay. I would say if you do not want to teach, this may not be the best position. It appears to be long hours at times but they are trying to improve on the quality of life for instructors....

  2. Oct 05, 2022 I applied for an SIC position that was not publicly advertised, and someone walked in my resume. I was told I would hear back from the HR in the following day but didn't hear anything for a while. I talked to the person who walked my resume in and they talked to the HR. I received a call and did a very simple phone screening. She explained what this job is, schedule, pay, benefits, etc. Then she asked me my flight time, related experience, etc. I was invited to come to their facility so they...

  3. May 04, 2022 My overall experience was unusual in that I basically "gave up" on the process getting started several times because it was taking so long. About 8 weeks after I applied, I finally got a "screening" call from a 3rd party company.  It was about a 15 minute call. They asked things like "why FlightSafety", "What do you think makes a good instructor". Turns out this company was just a short term "fix" they were using while they were...

  5. I had a friend walk in my resume along with an internal referral; once he had done so I was told to apply online. I had three phone calls and one "official" phone interview within the first week. From that point I didn't hear anything for 4 months (not sure if that's normal or not). I followed up with an email and within two days received a phone call to interview in person, as well as, give a 10-15 minute presentation. Everything was straight forward and what one could expect... Continue reading this interview experience
