The 208 SIC Interview was with the Chief Pilot, Assistant Chief, Director of Training and a Corporate Recruiter in person in Anchorage. The other reviews gave a good breakdown of the TMAAT and personality questions. The SIC interview has become more thorough as they are looking for candidates who plan to stick around and become PIC's. Technical questions included: - Medical -...

  1. Oct 06, 2022 It was very casual interview, very normal questions. Starting from personal introduction then technical. (view the study guide of this website).... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jun 06, 2022 Started with HR portion which was pretty much all the questions on this website. Asked me about what makes good customer service as a Pilot. Then moved on to the easiest technical I have experienced. I was asked very few questions mainly pertaining to weather reporting and Instrument charts specific to Jeppesen. Chief was very clear that he was not expecting me to know 121 level things as a lowly little CFI. He was a very fair man. Last portion was explaining to me a little more about the...

  3. May 18, 2022 Everything was exactly as per study guide. Very friendly interview with HR and Chief Pilot. Hired more or less on the spot, but found out a few days after officially. Questions asked were exactly as contained in the bank. As I am applying through the E3 Scheme they wanted to make sure I could deal with the Alaskan weather and dark...

  4. Apr 29, 2022 Interview was mostly personal. Was with an HR person and the CP. Both were friendly and professional. The only technical part was reading a Jepp Chart (basic) and a Metar and TAF (nothing unique). Like others have said I think they are looking for people who will fit in with their culture. They gave me a lot of time to talk about myself and share my experiences as a pilot.  Lots of questions about why work at RAVN and why fly in Alaska. The interview was very positive and lasted...

  5. It was a virtual interview. Very relaxed. Not much technical. Mostly just briefed an approach. Be ready to brief Homer, AK obstacle clearance procedure. They mostly just wanted to get to know you! It was with the Chief Pilot and I someone else from the office. HR had a... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. The interview was very professional and very positive. The Chief Pilot and HR were present, both obviously love Alaska and aviation, and the interview was oriented towards finding out how the applicant matches the company culture, lifestyle of the area, and meeting the standard expectations of instrument procedure knowledge. SIDs and STARs are obviously important, as well as knowing your approaches down to where you can brief whatever is passed across. Know your segment altitudes, what your...

  7. Very HR centered interview, not a ton of technical questions. Chief pilot, assistant chief, and HR were present via... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. I had a very straightforward interview with one representative from HR and the Chief Pilot. It was mostly standard HR questions (tell me about a time, etc) with a few short, situational technical questions. Do an approach briefing, read some NOTAMS, read a METAR and TAF. I believe that because I'm already flying in the 121 world they didn't go as far in depth as they may have for someone who doesn't have that experience. I didn't prep too much for it, just pulled examples from my flying... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Remember Ravn is under new ownership so some things have changed with the interview questions, but is still very similar. The questions are primarily scenario based, and quite a few questions about if other employees have a safety concern. (view the study guide of this website). A few technical on airspace, remember Alaska has a lot of untowered airports. The interview was relaxed and took about an... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. I was contacted by Tiara from Recruiting on 11/22...Introductions, are you still interested in a position.
