The other interview experience were spot on. The day started with our interview host (Rich) telling us how the day would go and answered any questions we had. As a note, I felt there was definitely a good cop bad cop thing going on between the pilot panel interview (bad cop) and the management panel interview (good cop). Not criticizing or hating but thats what I observed. Day was as follows... 1 Pilot Panel 2 Management Panel 3 Written Test 4 Sim Eval in Q400 FTD Pilot Panel I was asked many...

  1. May 26, 2023 Exactly what the others have said. Study the questions on this site for Hawaiian. There are 3 phases of the interview... I got the CRM first with another interviewee (one person plays CA, other FO. One plays PF other PM), oxygen leak was the situation. Then had a pilot board with two current FOs. Then had management board. Everyone was very friendly and nice. Finished the interview process doing lunch with other... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. May 26, 2023 The day started with the CRM exercise. (view the Sim/Scenario section in the study guide of this website).  The second pannel was with Management, exactly the questions that were on the gouge. They were more geared to leaning about your background and why Hawaiian Airlines.  The pilot pannel was great, the two pilots were very kind and want to get to know you. The asked the question related to getting to know you and how you interact with other crew members so limit your answers to... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. May 16, 2023 Most everything here is pretty spot on exactly what they asked. Nearly the entire interview is just getting to know you. There's very few technical questions, if any at all. There are three sections of the interview: Management/HR, Technical, and CRM. The management portion is with a Chief Pilot. Things like Why Hawaiian, leadership experience, customer service experience, etc. The CRM portion is you and a partner talking through some non-normal scenario. Mine was a low fuel...

  4. May 16, 2023 The interview went great, everyone was nice and laid back and made sure you felt comfortable. Another interviewer and I did the CRM first which was about 20 mins, then we had a short break before the next part of the interview. For me it was the Management Panel which also was about 20-30 mins with 3 people asking me questions. The last part was the Pilot Panel with two A330 Captains and that was about 20 mins. Then the morning interview crew which consisted of 3 of us and 4 interview crew... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. May 04, 2023 I genuinely enjoyed this entire interview experience! I was apart of the afternoon session so we started by having lunch with interviewees from the morning session. Did the CRM panel first but didn’t have a partner so I worked through the scenario with an HA Captain acting as PM, Dispatch, FAs, etc. Scenario was medical emergency approaching ETP from LAX to HNL. Then went in to the pilot panel and management panel last. All questions were from here with no surprises. Why Hawaiian is... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. May 04, 2023 Very relaxed interview process, fun CRM. Panel is very interested on why Hawaiian… They recently had people quit on the spot if they didn’t get the plane that they wanted so be prepared for that in the interview. Overall a very nice experience the least pressured interview I’ve ever... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. May 01, 2023 This job is for first officer role. Interview Was dated approximately two months after initial application. The application was quite lengthy with questions asking why Hawaiian? The company only issues tickets on the Hawaiian airlines and no other airlines so if you live outside of their net work you have to pay for your own ticket to get to their net work.  Interview was in four stages; lunch with other first officers (I think they were first offices from the company). A management... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Apr 28, 2023 Everything on here is 100% acurate. Very laid back environment and mostly just TMAAT/personal flying questions. They’ll review your logbooks as soon as you get there. The CRM exercise has no right answer. Make sure to utilize all of your resources including the Captain/FO (THIS IS BIG) as well as dispatch, ATC, maintenance, flight attendants,...

  9. Apr 01, 2023 Very friendly interview. Started with an oral crm excercise to work with another candidate. It was a decision about an oxygen leak getting close to the ETP. They want to see a good crm, group work, politeness, communication and standard callouts and positive exchange of controls (verbally). The instructor plays ATC, company, cabin crew, etc. Later an operational interview with two pilots. Questions about TAAT, why Hawaiian (golden question), and your personal story and experiences. The next... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Mar 30, 2023 Questions in the AviationInterviews bank were accurate. Three part interview: CRM exercise, HR panel interview, pilot panel interview. CRM exercise with another candidate. Transit from Newark to HNL with a stumbling confused pax 20 min prior to ETP between SFO and HNL over the water. Progressed to a medical emergency 5 min to ETP. Had to decide to continue or turn back. We decided to turn back with good wx in SFO and a strong tailwind flying that direction. No wrong answer. The team...
