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.

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
