  • 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”...

    Applied online, no resume, or letter of rec. After applying on Saturday I got a phone call that Monday for an impromtu phone screening, discussed why PSA, domiciles, medical, written tests complete, etc. Scheduled the interview for this month due to military separation date 6 months out. Interviewed online, very low threat and done by a 3 year FO with another PSA employee observing (muted mic). Basic introduction from the interviewer, talked about my hours and a very brief logbook review....

    Phone Screen We had a good conversation. Most questions were legal and eligibility, then one TMAAT when you had a conflict with a Captain. Virtual Interview The FO who was conducting the virtual interview hopped straight into the technical portion. I translated a METAR for Ashville airport. (view the study guide of this website).  He then showed me a TAF and gave me an arrival time. The question was, the dispatcher did not provide an alternate, based on your arrival time, were they...

    Very straight forward interview. Started with a METAR/TAF and decided if we needed a TO alternate and a destination alternate. I had freezing snow and we talked about what to expect with this METAR. Walked through Jepp taxiway diagram (know beacon, ARP, reference point, etc.), Jepp arival and departure, then the ILS 36C into Charlotte. I do not remember the exact departure and arrival, but there were no gotcha questions. Review different clearances "Descend and Maintain ____" on an...

    Why PSA, read and use METAR/TAF in depth including remarks. Determine if we can take off looking at takeoff minimums with full lighting, and if we need alternate at destination using TAF. Asked questions about airport diagram, taxi route (hotspots), SID, STAR, and approach. DCA-CLT. Never had to brief anything. Interview lasted 30...

    Interview went pretty much as the rest of these reviews. Started with him asking me about all my Flight time and then tell me about yourself and why PSA. Then we went into the flight scenario from DCA – CLT. Didn’t have me brief the SID but asked me questions about it. Then we moved onto a STAR into CLT and the ILS approach for 36L. Didn’t brief anything, but was asked a lot about symbology, takeoff alternates, and different kinds of minimums with different approach,...

Following it was questions. Just follow the study...

    It started with the logbook screening.  He didn’t ask HR questions anymore. The technical side was pretty much the same as the previous ones. He gave me a METAR. He asked me if we can legally depart. I said yes. Showed me a TAF, asked me if I need a Destination alternate. I said yes. He asked me how will I fly the SID of a particular departure chart. I just read it to him. He asked me about the Arrival chart. If I was given a direct to a waypoint, what should I expect, I said an...
