  1. Mar 30, 2022 I met the recruiter at a job fair and then 3 weeks later he was able to look at my application. He then sent me a test on regulations that I had to pass to get the first interview. He called me same day to set up first interview. That was the next week and it was just a 30 minute informal get to know you interview. We set up the second interview then and it was with the chief pilot. It was the next week and was about an hour long. I was able to ask all of my questions and get to know the...

  2. Feb 16, 2022 Went to a job fair which there was a pilot recruiter. We hit it off and he had me apply online and fill out a questionnaire. After that I had an interview on the phone and was offered a... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Applied online, and the same day I received an email to take an online 25 question assessment. Most questions were IFR, oxygen requirements, and part 135 related regs. About a week later I received a phone call to schedule a zoom interview. This was a 30 ish min HR based, really just a getting to know you type interview with a rundown on company info. I was recommended with a second interview with the chief pilot, which was scheduled a few days later along with a PowerPoint to review with... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Great interview experience, totally relaxed and open. The gouge given is all spot on. Just like sitting around and talking to people for a day. The group of contestants was varied, form regional pilots to corporate pilots, young and old. The compass testing is a bit of fun, the RMI section is strange, the old NDB is presented like a old fixed card, but the heading indicator just messes with your brain. The knowledge section is pure eauorpean easa questions, nothing hard but different to... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. I submitted an application for their 727 FO position as I had some 727 systems and sim time from Purdue before they retired it. That was Saturday night, Monday morning I got a call from their DOT offering me the 737 FO position, but the catch was that the class date was in 2 1/2 weeks. I thought on it for a day or so to make sure I could swing that between my family and my commitment to my current job, figured out solutions and accepted the offer. I started receiving training materials... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Previous gouges still accurate. Flew in night before, on own dime, hotel was provided as was transportation to and from. Interview started at 8am with the human resource department. Filled out paperwork, took drug test, and they reviewed the benefits sheet. Be sure to have all of your documents as they want to review them/make copies. Next was 2 on 1 interview. They spent a lot of time talking about the company, the benefits and pay, very thorough and honest with the information, the... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. The first part of the interview was really straight forward, we went over H.R. benefits, no real questions, just sitting down with one of the H.R. managers, after that a drug test was completed.  After the drug test the real part of the interview started with the chief pilot and training pilot.  It started with a brief overview of what the rotations are like. 2 weeks on 1 week off, the rotation of how pilots are used during the two weeks on.  After describing the company we...

  8. The gouges were pretty much spot on. I studied those topics and I think I did ok on the written, and ok on the HR and systems questions. Another person that I interviewed the day after got a sim ride but I did not which leads me to believe that I did not  get the job. My letter of recommmendation had something scribbled on the back, and I could not find the questions I wrote in my briefcase which I'm sure made me look unprepared. Everyone was nice and it was pretty relaxed, it... Continue reading this interview experience
