Flew in the night before. Got to the hotel, which provides a Shuttle to the training center which was easy. Lots of other pilots interviewing for Piedmont. There was only about 9 of us for PSA. Arrived at training center at 9 and checked in. Typical with the other gouges they had us wait in the cafeteria. Pilot came and got us at 10am. Went to a class room where there were assigned seats by last name. After brief introductions the pilots took the log books and documents. While they were reviewing them we sat though essentially a “why PSA is the best regional”... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  3. Jan 11, 2022 Interview was straight forward. I signed on about 15 minutes early and the interviewer came in about 5 minutes before scheduled interview. He introduced himself; senior FO getting ready to upgrade to captain. He was very friendly and made me feel at ease. Dove right into HR questions; my personal history, checkride busts (I have a few), a few TMAAT questions and a big one was, what makes a good captain? After the HR portion we went into the technical portion. We reviewed a METAR and TAF and... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jan 05, 2022 Just like a lot of others' experiences that are posted here, straight forward and professional. Microsoft Teams interview with screen sharing for the diagrams. The gouge was very accurate and it seemed like almost every question that was asked was right out of the gouge. Interview started with basic HR questions. I was asked TMAAT when I had to deal with a conflict at work, what I think makes a good captain, and if I've ever gone above and beyond for a customer/student. After that we went...
