Read Page 1 ... test I took online prior to the interview ( I was led to believe the test was timed, but they really didn't care how long you took on it, look up any questions you don't know and score as high as possible on this test).  Next, the chief pilot asked me what aircraft I was the most familiar with (C206) and he asked me to describe just about every system in the aircraft(Engine, brakes, flaps, electrical, fuel, autopilot).  He wanted very in depth descriptions of the system, more than I have ever had on...

  1. Aug 23, 2021 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

  3. 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...

  4. 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
