  • Read Page 1 ... Questions,  they also mentioned that some do not get hired in the first round and if Im not hired this time that I can reapply in the next window. I found this comment to be a bit unsettling this early in the interview process but tried my best to keep confidence high for the remainder of the day. Management Questions (most laid back group I interviewed with). There were other Potential questions that I wasnt asked (but prepped for).

    Interview was just as described in the other posts. Why Hawaiian is the most important question. But there is a question about the cargo aircraft and if you want to fly cargo vs 717. The CRM portion was not very threatening. I would not worry about the answer as much as discussing what you are thinking and using good CRM...

    The interview was very relaxing and fun. I was part of the 0800 group with 2 other guys, and everything went as stated here before. It's a 3-part interview: HR panel, pilot panel, and CRM panel. The HR panel just wants to get to know you and make sure you fully qualify for the position. TAAT, WHY HAWAIIAN (honestly, this is the most important question), any violations, etc. The pilot panel was pretty much the same, but with more decision-making questions. What is CRM to you, and how do you...

Queried ATC if other HNL runway was available, negative, inbound mechanical emergency. Decided to divert to OGG, communicated with dispatch, cabin crew+pax. Pilot panel, three line pilots. Asked what would I do if on short final and runway was occupied by a vehicle. Call for go around, call for go around second time and observe...

    Met by management guy in lobby with other candidates in the group. Gave us a breakdown of the coming hours - I was the 11am slot so we started with a group lunch with just the other candidates (including the morning ones). Pretty chill and got to discuss some of the interview aspects. Once finished, we met back in the room and they outlined the three panels - management, pilot, and CRM exercise. Randomly selected with another candidate for CRM, which was a fuel question while being held...

    The gouge was spot on. 3 different panels to talk to. You will be with 3 others interviewees in the waiting room. Everyone made you feel really comfortable. Each panel asked why Hawaiian Airlines. Most of the TAAT questions had to do with conflict with coworker or taking control of a situation for safety. I would say each panel was only 30 minutes long. Overall just try to relax, answer honestly, and think about each question before...

    This was my second time interviewing here. It was a very relaxed experience. I was in the 11am group. It started with us meeting the 8am group for lunch. Then the four of us went into the conference room to wait. My first panel was the management interview. The system chief and asst system chief were there. The assistant chief reviewed my logs and certificates. The system chief remembered me from the previous interview a year earlier. They asked me a few basic questions and we talked a bit...

    I was in the afternoon group that started at 1100. I was worried about traffic in Oahu so I scheduled the Lyft to pick up from the hotel at 0930...ended up arriving 1 hour early. All good though, just checked in and chilled in the lobby. Had lunch and then was escorted to a staging room where you leave your stuff and give pertinent documents to management. 3 panel interview. I had CRM exercise with one other applicant. Gen fault 20 minutes from ETP. Then APU fault past ETP and WX...

    There were 4 of us for the afternoon panels. Escorted by Rich who is covering for Analu, he was very friendly. The relaxed culture begins as soon as you walk into the lobby. Other pilots and trainees were happy to meet all of us. Not one person in suits except for me and the 3 other guys. Started with lunch at 11. Mgmt panel was first. They asked why Hawaiian, what’s my background, TMAAT you showed malama (care), asked about a former company on resume. Next up was pilot panel. 3 senior...

    I liked being able to go way back, in order to see trends in the questions asked.
