    Everything that previous interviewees mentioned in this website is accurate. During the day of the interview, they had a quick presentation about Piedmont and we were selected to go in order of who leaves Charlotte first. Interview process was fairly simple, they check your logbook. Make sure you’re good And then they proceeded with HR (Tell me more about yourself, tell me how you handled a dispute in the cockpit, what does CRM mean to you?). In the technical portion, I was asked...

    Everything on the gauge is extremely accurate. Arrived the evening before, took the shuttle to the hotel and attended the presentation the next morning. Interviews were conducted in the order of flights out the next day. Two friendly Piedmont employees asked me a small handful of HR question before moving on to the technical. Mostly weather, translating an extensive METAR and then briefing a Jepp approach/airport diagram. Heard back just over a day...

    Very laid back interview. The questions on this site are spot on. Know your raw metars, Jeppessen charts (approach, airport), be familiar with alternate requirements and be well informed about weather including thunderstorms, fog, TS Anvils and microburst. Speak speak speak. Make sure you are thorough with everything you speak about...the more you are able to elaborate about something the less follow up questions you will receive. Be prepared to speak about everything on an approach...

    Had a nice small group of only 2 interviewees. Study the questions listed here and you will be fine! Know basic weather and ifr procedures/hold entries. Metar was heavy on thunderstorms. Briefed KBGM ILS 16 and airport diagram. Also asked how far can you descend past decision altitude if you have the malsr in sight. And difference between PAPI and A-PAPI. Recruiters were very easy to talk to and want you to...

    They asked a lot of questions about Jeppesen plates and the airport/taxi diagram. Some weather questions were also asked like crazy 3 line METARS with odd codes. Other weather questions were also related to hazardous weather like thunderstorms, a microburst. They wanted to know what were the stages and when a microburst will typically form,...

    Interview:  Read a Metar, and then questions.  Many weather questions.  Pulled out a surface analysis talked about fronts and pressure systems and isobars then pointed to a front and asked me questions,  (view the study guide of this...

    Very nice company, like others have said if you made it to Charlotte they want to hire you. Study the gouge and come prepared and it should be easy. The interview maybe lasted 30 minutes. A few HR questions then metars, ILS 16 KBGM, and the Taxi diagram for that airport. Study how to brief and approach, how to draw and anvil and how to avoid it and microbursts. On the plates just be able to answer questions about the different items on it. ARP, Where is the missed approach, what is the hold...

    Followed the other guides. Learn 3 line METARS, you will need to know this. Look up thunderstorm related metars. Know Jepp approach and taxi diagrams. I was basically asked what every symbol on the approach chart was. Brief the plate and I went into extra detail of what everything meant. This saved time by them not having to ask me as many additional questions. Know the 1-2-3 rule and one 121 regs. I studied all questions on this site and was well prepared. Very laid back atmosphere. Heard...

    Everything here is very accurate. The HR portion was straight forward. The 3 line metars caught me by surprise but I was able to work through it. Practice complex metars especially with lightning & thunderstorm directions and intensity. Jepp charts and airport diagrams. The better you brief them the less questions they have. Overall a great experience. They have a good pilot group so they want to make sure the people they hire will fit in. Follow the...

  11. The study guides were spot on. I would’ve definitely been less prepared without it.
