FREE Mesa Airlines pilot interview information and gouge

The interview process was via video on line. Very easy to set up, just make sure you're able to do so. Recruiter started off with an introduction about the company, the majors they support and a training outline. The Aviate program was touched on and I recommend reading over what its about just so you'll have an idea as he briefs it. Its a video on line remember so sometimes there can be a delay in the feedback. So plan ahead and do some homework on Mesa and its programs, routes, aircraft etc. We then went into the scenarios.

  1. Feb 15, 2023 The interview was very simple. Just a few basic HR questions and TMAAT. Then I was given 10 technical questions that were multiple choice. I am pretty sure there were a few I got wrong, but still received a job offer. The recruiter who interviewed me told me not to stress about the technical portion too much. Overall, very laid back...

  2. Jan 24, 2023 Interview was via Zoom and started pretty much on time. The HR TMAAT questions were all from the gouge. Tell me about yourself, 3 best and worst qualities, captain shows up smelling of alcohol, etc. The technical questions were on a word doc with multiple choice answers.  Not sure if they have just made new questions? Kind of awkward to have them just sit there and watch you as you read questions to yourself and pick an answer. After the multiple choice there was a STAR into PHX and...

  3. Jan 24, 2023 Initial phone screening was just yes/no questions around flight time, any incidents/investigations, work eligibility, etc. and then the virtual interview was scheduled for the following week. The gouge here was spot on in terms of the actual interview questions, I was asked TMAAT questions, (view the study guide of this website).  Then she shared her screen with 10 technical questions, none were too surprising (again, gouge was accurate here) and then asked some questions about a Jepp...

  4. Jan 06, 2023 Interview started about 15 minutes late, I would say the gouge on here is accurate. They really want to hire you so relax and study from this website. Started off with "what do you know about Mesa" "why do you think you'd make a good fit here" ETC. HR portion was 30 mins or so technical was 10 multiple choice questions (done by HR personnel). Wrapped it up with a presentation about the company. Apparently there's only three recruiters working First officer hiring so it... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jan 06, 2023 It was a pretty informal interview with a recruiter. The recruiter was not a pilot so the technical portion was quite different than most airlines. We started with the HR portion (TMAAT, why Mesa? etc.) and some background check questions. Then moved into the technical portion. The technical portion included an approach brief and arrival brief (DSERT TWO PHX). Both were jepp plates and some follow-up questions were asked off the plates. Concluded technical portion with a 10-question multiple... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jan 05, 2023 Very straight forward. Interview was conducted by a recruiter, told my elevator story and answered a few HR questions. followed by 3 Tell me about a time questions and a question asking how I would handle being accused of drinking alcohol by a pax. then 10 multiple choice "technical questions" all of which were in the study guide. finished off with 3 questions about an departure chart. whole thing took 35 minutes and I was sent an offer letter 5 days...

  8. Jan 04, 2023 Interview was as described here on the website. Lasted about 30-40 minutes. Mostly HR and TMAAT questions and a short technical portion. This study guide prepares well beyond what you will need for the interview. Heard back a week later and was awarded the crj 900 with a June class... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Dec 29, 2022 Interview started like 2 minutes late. I was actually waiting for the interviewer to get online and thought that they forgot about it. It was short and straight to the point. The whole interview lasted less that 30 minutes. We started with presentations, tell me about yourself. After that straight to a power point presentation of the company that lasted like 10 minutes. The last part was the actual interview which consisted of 10 TMAAT questions. (view the study guide of this website). ... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Dec 23, 2022 The interview was 99% what I expected based on other interview reports. It was a very pleasant experience; I stressed a bit with studying being as I only had 1 day of preparation, but overall I didn't need to and it was low pressure. I met a Mesa pilot recruiter in person at FAPA hiring event 2 months ago, provided my resume in person, and submitted a full application through Mesa's web site a few days later. Texted back and forth 3-4 times with the recruiter regarding setting up an... Continue reading this interview experience
