FREE PSA Airlines pilot interview information and gouge

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

  1. Jun 29, 2022 Gouges on here were accurate. Pilot and HR that interviewed me were very friendly and easy to talk to. Opened with a few typical HR interview questions and then moved on the technical. Briefed Jepp plates sequentially for a flight from CLE to DCA, with a few other instrument questions thrown in there. No weather or systems questions except for some C-172 Q&A at the end. Know your Jepp charts and you'll do... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jun 28, 2022 I drive to the training center in Charlotte and arrived about ten minutes early for my interview. I received a security badge and was escorted to a waiting room with some other candidates. We waited for an hour and forty five minutes as the interviews were slightly delayed for the day. At one point, a captain came in to verify my documents, logbook, and ID. Once I was called to go up, I met with an HR Representative and a current captain. The interview began with three HR questions, (view... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jun 28, 2022 The interview was straightforward and similar to what everyone else has said on this site. HR rep asked 3 questions at the beginning. Then the captain took over the technical portion. Started with some basic weather, had me read a METAR with snow showers, freezing rain, and some unique remarks. Then asked if we needed alternate based on TAF. Asked if we needed takeoff alternate based on current weather and where I would look to find out. Had me brief a Jepp taxi diagram (hot spots, ILS...

  4. Jun 28, 2022 During the interview there were 3 HR questions (including "drunk captain" WWYD). After that it was a SID and a STARs plate and some questions about it. Then a Metar and TAF and asked if we would need an alternate (123 rule). Then approach plates and some questions (I believe Cleveland to CLT). Pretty much study Metars/TAF and Instrument Pilots Cafe and Jepp charts. The gouge for the interviews were accurate and... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 22, 2022 Was emailed by a recruiter and had a “phone screen” set up. The phone screen lasted for about 10 minutes and consisted of questions about my hours, mostly confirming they were all still the same as what was on my app. Then 4-5 HR questions most of which could be found here on AviationInterviews. I gave the standard answers and after that the call was over. The next day I received a thanks but no thanks... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jun 15, 2022 Met with recruiter and an FO for about 45min. Most questions were regarding charts. Pretty straight forward, all questions asked could be found here on AviationInterviews. 5 min after interview I had a CJO in... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jun 09, 2022 My interview was for the cadet academy and was done virtually. We spent the first 15 minutes or so on HR questions, pretty basic stuff. They brought up a scenario where its the first day of a 3 day trip and you walk in and see the captain and flight attendant arguing over something, what would you do. I said "I'd separate them and talk to them each individually and figure out if its something they can keep it professionally and deal with it for the rest of the trip and if not then for...

  8. Jun 09, 2022 METAR/TAF, SIDS/ STAR, Charlotte instrument plate, RVR, rule 1-2-3( for an alternate), takeoff alternate. Describe C-172 engine and in what speed you can add the first flap on C172 (68kn). Then he asked me if I have my multi engine rating ( what is VMC and which engine is critical? Simple interview took 40... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jun 09, 2022 I had a virtual interview which lasted for about 1.5 hours. It was all as described on this website. Read METAR and TAF to detirmine if a departure and/or destination alternate is required. Then read Jeppesen 10-9A page for the deperture airport (hot spots, ARP, windsocks, taxiways, ILS hold short lines, ground vehicle routes, etc.). Then read SID, STAR, and approach (where is FAF at a precision approach, how to identify fixes, MAP, what is VDP and PDP, when can descend below DA, when can...

  10. Jun 08, 2022 It took awhile for me to get a phone screening, I think something got mixed up after I submitted my app. Once I got a response from PSA, the process went very quick: 1 week after my phone screening I was in CLT for the interview. The interview itself was largely similar to the gouges listed here. A few questions I got were about de-icing fluid and some lost comms procedures that were a bit grey between the regs and what’s published on the chart. I felt really comfortable and confident...

    Great information and I had an idea of how my interview would play out.
