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. Oct 11, 2021 Virtual interview with HR and my recruiter. Started off telling about yourself...why Piedmont, drunk captain scenario, importance of CRM in the cockpit. Asked what you perceive professionalism as. Then we moved onto the lengthy metars and remarks. Just as everybody said before, know QDNT, OCN LTG ICCCCG, A02 meaning, P0002 (precip amount in last hour..place a decimal before the last number). Brief an approach in Binghamton airport (ILS), asked about ILS and VGSI not coincident meaning,... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Oct 04, 2021 They take ALL documents/copies early (30 min early if you are there); make sure you are organized. MAKE SURE TO READ ALL EMAILS!

  3. Oct 04, 2021 Was flown in the morning of the interview. Got in with plenty of time before the interviews started at 10am. It was held at a nearby hotel close to CLT. They collected logbooks and paperwork before going in. The interview started off with a 30 presentation about the company followed up with one on one interviews. The interview is with an HR recruiter and line captain. They go through your history and asked basic HR questions like tell me about your journey, what would you do if you noticed...

  4. Oct 04, 2021 The gouge was spot on. There were multiple groups of interviewers. I believe I had the "easier" interview group, while others seemed to have a harder/more in-depth technical interview. A few TMAAT questions, the usual "drunk captain" scenario, some personality questions, and then the technical. The technical consisted of long metars with lightning, variable RVRS, low ceilings, rain ending/began times, etc. I briefed a JEPP approach plate, the ILS 16 KBGM, although they said they change up...

  5. Sep 29, 2021 I flew in the day before, and stayed in the hotel close to the airport, you have to call the hotel to get a shuttle to the hotel. (they don't tell you that so just make sure you call when you get out to the shuttle area). There's a restaurant at the hotel so you don't have to go anywhere for dinner or breakfast the next day which was awesome. The next morning got the 9am shuttle to the AA training center (shuttles run every hour so everyone in my group took the 9 because the interview was... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Sep 29, 2021 Not to sound like a broken record but the questions on this site are spot on. No questions I was asked fell outside those listed. If you are not familiar with JEP plates do some research as they have some differences that can catch you off guard. After HR questions and basic background we went right into complex metars, don’t worry if you miss one or two if you understand the majority of it they help you through some of the less common/ more complex ones. Weather questions were more... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Sep 29, 2021 Gouge is spot on. Four things I could have used to focus on: -Airport Diagram and 10-9 Page in Jepp -Asked about the different types of Fog -Asked about the types of Icing -Asked to calculate descent rate on approach Good luck, it is your job to...
