FREE Piedmont Airlines pilot interview information and gouge

The interview was pretty straight forward. Everything on the gouge was spot on and the interview has no surprises so relax and just study and keep current on your IFR stuff. The day started out with me flying to CLT, flight was delayed so i contacted my recruiter to let her know about it, once I arrive I went to the baggage claim, door D, and if you walk to your right their is a sign that says American flight training center shuttle, make sure you take it. Once you check in, you'll wait for your recruiter to pick you up from the cafeteria. Once they picked us up, without missing a beat we started to... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Mar 02, 2021 Exactly like the gouge. A few questions to get to know you better - nothing too intense there at all. Had me read a METAR - pretty easy if you study and know your stuff. Check out the BGM METAR examples in the gouge. Then to KBGM ILS 16, briefed the approach - might want to ask if it is the full approach or RV, or just state RV and brief away. Asked a few questions about the missed, holding, course reversal, hold entries, holding speeds. Then on to the Airport Diagram. Know all the... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jul 30, 2020 Was very laid back and on par with everyone else. Just study the gouge and you will be successful. I was placed in a pool with everyone else during this though time. Briefed an approach to Wilkes-Barre Scranton airport and answered questions about the airport diagram. Then it became the question game until you get an answer wrong. Just be yourself and have a good time. The metars weren't as bad as I thought everyone said they would be. But honestly with some of the prep I did for the...

It lasted about an hour. Heard back the next day. I was hired into the pool for when they open classes back up. Interview question prep was pretty much right on.

Briefed an approach plate an ILS into KIPT then talked about airport diagrams for a bit as well as airport lighting and even talked about EMAS for a bit.
