FREE Republic Airways pilot interview information and gouge

I submitted my application for Republic Airways and heard back from a recruiter the following day. We had a 15 minutes phone screen conversation a few days later and I was invited for an interview in Indianapolis. They booked my flights to and from the interview and put me up at the Springhill Suites near the training center. All travel and accommodation was paid for by Republic. On the interview day I arrived at 08:15am and met all the other applicants interviewing that day. At 08:30am we had a company presentation by HR and... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Feb 28, 2023 Interview took about 1/2hour. HR: - Why RJet? - Why should they hire you specifically - TMAAT when you had a disagreement with another pilot or ATC while flying (Had to be a flying example) -Why do you want to be a be a cadet? Technical: - Breif Jep approach chart - Metar/TAFF - IFR regs - IFR Speeds -... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Feb 22, 2023 I did 2 interviews with 2 regional airlines and Republic by far was the most easy going, they asked very easy basic questions and the entire experience felt like I was having coffee with friends. The captain was very helpful and honest about experiences he had in the past. My recruiter asked the HR questions in about 15 mins and then the captain took over. We briefed 1 ILS plate and then a metar and a taf. Nothing too... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Nov 17, 2022 Its very straight forward. Got to the training center, had a little tour, was shown a presentation and then had a chance to ask questions to pilots. The interview was short and sweet and all questions are right from the gouge, and common sense. They are super friendly and understand... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Nov 16, 2022 Had a virtual interview with a captain and HR person. Looking to get into training dept. Only 3-4 easy HR questions. The tech part was a little over kill but was fine. Asked to read a TAF and determine if an alternate was needed. Asked a memory item from current jet. Asked me what VMCG was. Holding speeds about 16000ft. What considerations I’d make as captain if I had an emergency. Wasn't bad… about an hour. Virtual interviewing is not preferred. Hard to make a good... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Nov 09, 2022 I interviewed for the SIM instructor position. Everything was straightforward and simple. A total of three interviews (phone, video recording and meet). Heard back within a week that I had the job. The phone interview was about 15 minutes and then I heard back pretty quickly that I would have another interview where I recorded some videos. The video questions weren't any trick questions, but more about my teaching style and experience as a pilot. The meet was more of getting to know you and...

  6. Nov 02, 2022 The interview went real smooth, no gotcha questions, they just want to get to know you and your goals. Interview lasted about 20min. I definitely recommend studying AviationInterviews, I felt super prepared. The facilities and team were super nice. The Senior pilots seemed like great mentors, at the end of the day Republic Airways seems like a great place to call... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Oct 28, 2022 Was truly an enjoyable interview experience. I was hired on the spot. Talking with the other applicants they were really tripped up on reading the TAF. We were required to read to task from the hurricane that was going on at the time. The main question regarding the traffic was stupid needed alternate (123) Although yes there was a hurricane going on legally we did not need one. It wouldn’t hurt to know RVSM altitude and equipment requirements, a gentlemen was asked that. Jeppesen... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Oct 22, 2022 The HR portion was pretty standard "tell me about yourself/flying experience.  The technical portion was reading a Jepp plate for KIND, "what runway would you choose," "brief this approach," "we are outside the FAF and RVR is (blank), can we land," "what airspace are we in at 18,000'," "what do we do when we get there," "what is that altitude referred to as in the US." The hardest part was the METAR that was pulled out... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Oct 17, 2022 Super basic instrument questions. Dont overthink it. Hardest question was what is the top alt of... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Oct 14, 2022 Expect a phone interview first to walk through your logbook and your experiences. They asked when the last time I flew was, how many hours I have in specific categories, and what my goals were. Then I received some emails on travel confirmations and the hotel. They also sent me an email on a training opportunity in their simulators. It never happened though, likely due to time/availability of instructors. They flew me down to IND the day before the interview through DEN. The morning of the... Continue reading this interview experience
