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. Jul 21, 2021 Thunderstorm METARS and Jepp charts. Know these and you'll do excellent, just like everyone else... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jul 21, 2021 Interview was pretty standard. Started with "tell us about yourself". A few HR questions, a few technical questions including, draw a micro burst, but the highlight was to read a long Metar, which contain codes DSNT ALQDS GR GS LTGICCCCG nothing too crazy, study on how to read a Metar. Then briefed a Jeppenson approach plate. Whole thing felt like it lasted 15 to 20 minutes. Very nice people who want you to do well so they can hire you. Lastly you don't have to get everything...

  3. Jul 08, 2021 Was hired last year but put on hold due to COVID. Was contacted couple of weeks ago and rescheduled for interview. Similar interview process as last year. Study the gouge. No surprises there. They are very nice and want you to do well on the interview. Interview is in Charlotte.  I am local so drove to the interview but they will fly you there if you are out of town. All I can tell you, if you get an interview with Piedmont, study the gouge accurately and have your paperwork in... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jul 08, 2021 Flew out the same morning and was sent an email to the wrong location. I had to call the recruiters to find out the right place to go. Found out I wasn’t the only one sent the wrong location to go so that made me feel better. They seemed a little disorganized but also really nice people. The interview didn’t have any questions to get to know me. It was all technical. The jepp charts were the most difficult part. I looked over the symbols a ton but there was still some questions I...

  5. Jul 07, 2021 Everything was exactly like everyone says. My approach plate was from Binghamton as was my 10-9. Study the symbology on the 10-9 because they got me on a couple of those. I interviewed last year and got called back for another interview. If this happens to you, make sure you prepare for a full... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jun 30, 2021 The recruiting team for Piedmont is awesome!! They will go out of their way to make sure you get all your questions answered. I was one of the ones lingering around from the pool last year who didn't have my written complete. They're now offering the CTP course again so they gave me a call to come back for a follow up interview. The interview covered the core aspects of every other interview reported here. Brief a jep, read a thunderstorm metar, go over a 10-9, and a few weather GK... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jun 30, 2021 The gouge was pretty spot on. Reviewed some interesting METAR's/TAFs. We then talked about some general weather stuff mostly around thunderstorms. I drew out a microburst and talked through it. Know your little 2-3 letter codes and you should do okay. Did the KBGM ILS 16 and Taxi Diagram. Not being familiar with Jepp plates this was the hardest part for me. Make sure you take your time and do a complete briefing going over all the details you...

  8. Jun 29, 2021 This interview was in person, It consisted of a brief discussion of my background involving my start in aviation, where I went to school, What made me want to become a pilot, and why I want to work for Piedmont. Next, we moved in to the technical side where I read a metar involving thunderstorms followed by a briefing an approach plate jepp chart. finally we talked about a taxi diagram including hot spots, and EMAS. Overall the interviewers were very friendly and easy to talk to making the... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. 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

  10. 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...

    I liked the practice questions from actual interviews, also the option to study for more than one company. It definitely helps with the actual interview!
