FREE Kalitta Air pilot interview information and gouge

Read Page 1 ... interviewees (about 16), seemed to come from a mix of backgrounds. There were a few guys who had ACMI time, a couple guys flying for foreign carriers, a few from the regionals, and a few from corporate / charter world. From my interactions.....good guys all around. There are four segments to the day: 1. Compass test 2. HR interview 3. Drug test 4. Paperwork It was random if you were picked to do the Compass or HR test first. From what I understand, the interview is normally a full day process, but on this day it seemed like there was something else happening at their offices and so they tried to compress the timeline by letting people do the Compass test and interview...

  1. Feb 02, 2021 Interview was very relaxed. Even though the email said "business casual", the majority was in full suit and tie. The only casual side to my dress was a skinny tie. Plan ahead: wake up early enough to get breakfast. The shuttle leaves at 8:40 and takes you directly to the Kalitta Air building. There were about 20 of us, and they split us up into 2 groups: the first half did the paperwork and the HR panel interview, the second half did the compass test/verbal reasoning test. I was in...

  2. Feb 02, 2021 Phone call was received 10 days before the interview and confirmation email was sent 5 days before the interview then follow by the drug test instruction. All interviewees, new comers, recurrent pilots are now staying at TownePlace Suites located at  Belleville, MI. Call the hotel for "Pre-Arranged" hotel shuttle from the airport. There is a restaurant 5 mins walk if u don't mind the cold.  Room was booked for 3 days/2nights. You pay your way to DTW. A Passenger van... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Feb 02, 2021 Interview was very relaxed. Even though the email said "business casual", the majority was in full suit and tie. The shuttle leaves at 8:40 and takes you directly to the Kalitta Air building. Most of the people interviewing were downstairs about 8:30am. There were about 20 of us, and they split us up into 2 groups: the first half did the paperwork and the HR panel interview, the second half did the compass test/verbal reasoning test. I was in the group that did the compass test... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Dec 08, 2020 First off awesome experience and not like any other interview I've done thus far. Other recent gouge reports are spot on, but here are the highlights: Get to DTW on your own,  Lodging covered by K4, hotel van will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. We finished our group of 20 by 4:30pm. 8:40am van to K4 in which they provide for the group. A fun welcome by Holly when you get there and a bit about the history and where the company is/going. Other people including a person from... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Dec 08, 2020 Very straight forward and scripted what you read online. Compass testing half the day. Simple Math, Verbal Reasoning, memorization exercise, flight director exercise, aircraft positioning exercise, and personality questions. Then you go into interview with panel of 5 people. Straight forward questions.  (view the study guide of this website).  They called a few hours after the interview and offered me a 747 position. Great people. Great...

  6. Oct 19, 2020 Stayed at TownePlace hotel in Belleville, MI, company puts you up for the night but travel to MI is up to you. Fly in and out of DTW and there is a complimentary shuttle van to the hotel. Our interview session was changed to the hotel conference room due to covid issues. Free breakfast at the hotel, company paid for sandwiches for your lunch. There were 15 in our group, started with introductions, paperwork, and a briefing by the chief pilot. Everyone is friendly and that’s what they... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Oct 19, 2020 Im not sure how much help I’ll be because my interview class was a little unique. Since we had our interview at the hotel, we didn’t have the compass testing. My understanding is that one part of the interview group does the panel and one group does the compass testing and then you switch after lunch. As for the HR panel, there was 5 members on the panel. It was very relaxed and all background and Kalitta based questions. There were no tell me about a times or what would you do... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Oct 06, 2020 My resume was walked in by a friend who already works at Kalitta. They called me and gave me just under 2 weeks from the call to the interview date. As mentioned before, you're on your own to get to Detroit, but once you're at the airport, they'll put you up in a hotel with a shuttle that will take you to the airport, and also get you to the airport. The dress code for the interview is business casual, but almost everyone in my interview group went full suit and tie. Many people chose to... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Oct 06, 2020 Gouge spot on. Be prepared for extensive questions during panel interview about your background. Be honest. They want to hire you but they will not if you are not honest and they understand people have hiccups during their life's and it is how you respond that is what they are looking...

  10. Oct 06, 2020 The interview consisted of two parts. A panel interview and computer testing (which takes about 3 hours). The panel interview is pretty straight forward. They made me feel relaxed and like they wanted to hire me, just be honest and be yourself. The testing is very time consuming but not too difficult if you spend some time practicing using a joystick and rudder pedals at home as well as getting up to speed on doing basic math with only a pencil and paper. Addition, Subtraction,... Continue reading this interview experience
