    Interview was an hour long. With Hilary from HR who I had met before at an event, and the Chief Pilot Pete. It was very relaxed and friendly, we chatted quite a bit and they answered about as many questions as they asked me. HR asked about my intro how I got into aviation. Asked about checkride failures and that standard stuff. And only one TMAAT about delivering exceptional customer service. That’s it for HR. Chief Pilot asked what makes a great Captain, and asked about my strengths...

    I interviewed for the Part 121 'Floater Pilot' on the ATR turboprop. I had a virtual interview with Hilary, (Director of Recruiting and Outreach) and Pete (MAC Chief Pilot). I dressed in a suit and my interviewers thanked me for making an effort with my appearance. First, I was asked to introduce myself so I took about 5 minutes to go through my educational and employment background, my flying experience, my volunteer service and what I like to do in my spare time. Hilary asked me basic HR...

    I interviewed for the C-408 position. I did a zoom interview with the chief pilot. He was a very nice guy! We talked about my employment history, checkride failures and technical questions. I was impressed that MAC actually reads your cover letter. I always send a cover letter and put in the effort. I would recommend submitting one. The technical questions I was asked were very limited due to time constraints. Then we went into talking about the systems in the last aircraft that I’ve...

And the coms came back for the approach but I lost coms as I was going missed and they wanted to know what I would do. I said I would shoot the published missed, proceed to the hold FAT they wanted to know which entry I would use was it standard or non standard turns in the hold and time it 1 minute then if I would hold and if I had an Efc time I would shoot another...

    The human resources portion pretty much matches what all you see on the site. Strengths and weaknesses, how you solve problems and conflicts. What makes a good captain. You will need to know IFR regs. A couple specifics were what is VDP? What does TEC mean? What to do if see approach lights but not runway at mins. The technical portion had follow up to the human resources questions. They asked the open ended question of tell us about yourself. Talked about hobbies and family. They...
