The RJet Cadet interview was professional though relaxed. An HR representative and First Officer conducted the interview, each taking about half of the allotted time. The interview was conducted via video chat with each interviewer appearing on video during their portion of the event. The HR portion occurs first and was less awkward than expected. A friend/coworker of mine interviewed in the slot before me, so we broke the ice and joked about him for a bit. The questions throughout the HR interview were quite standard. If...

  1. Feb 19, 2024 Applied and was scheduled an interview 2 weeks later. Laid back zoom interview about 30 minutes with a recruiter and a first officer.

  9. Oct 31, 2023 I applied for the RJetCadet position through the Republic Airways web site. About a week later I received an email saying I was invited to a Zoom interview. I used the study guide on AviationInterviews to prepare.  I wore a suit and selected an area of my home with excellent lighting and good background.
