Interview started at 0830 in Salt Lake. Myself and three other applicants. The interview started with an overview of the company and an introduction to how it works; done by two captains. I was selected first to do the HR portion with one of the captains. Because I had gone to a Cadet experience the day before they brought me out of the overview of the company prior to it ending to do the HR portion. It was very relaxed. The captain had to do some errands so we walked and talked for part of it. The questions were about disagreements with previous bosses, what would be the hardest thing about joining Skywest, what aircraft would I prefer, etc... see that portion of the gauge for more info. He also... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  2. Feb 14, 2024 It was as as advertised, it was almost 3 hrs long and he seemed to be going off a checklist and it covered all the aircraft systems, weather, metars, regulations, approaches, hr questions etc. I studied pretty hard for this using this site, and...

  3. Feb 13, 2024 Started with introduction of myself and my history. Then moved into homework. Total time, x-country, PIC, night, night landings, multi, instrument, simulator instrument, 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, 12 months. (I had all these numbers printed and in front of me ready to go) After this PRIA disclosures. From there straight into METAR and TAF decoding. I got a middle of the road METAR, but it had quite a few remarks. I was able to decode almost all of them, he nudged me in the right direction... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Feb 13, 2024 The interview went almost exactly like the gouges said they would. Started with HR questions (know your totals for the past 30, 60, 90 days & 6, 12 months) went into reading Wx products (TAF, METAR, Digital AITS) and talked about some Wx hazards like Thunderstorms and Microbursts. Had me describe the function of a High-bypass jet engine. Then went over some Jepp Chart symbology & had me brief an ILS approach into LGA. Finished with a CRM Scenario, (view the study guide of this... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Feb 07, 2024 I was very well prepared for the interview (probably over prepared but). I used a gouge I got from another Pilot for SkyWest,  and studied multiple articles about 121 rules and Jet theory and design. Interviewer was a SkyWest 1.5 year FO, very nice guy, professional, and punctual. Lasted about 1.5 hours with 20 minutes of me asking questions. Started off telling me about himself then I went into my intro, I kept it pretty brief (about 4 minutes). After that we went over my flight time,... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Feb 06, 2024 Overall the interview followed the study gouges here. Started off with intros, then hours. My interviewer was a pilot who was now spending most of her time as a recruiter but would soon be returning to the line. During my intro, I was asked about my experience dry leasing a plane to time build rather than become a CFI. After that I was asked whether I had ever (TMAAT) experienced any emergencies as a pilot. Next were questions about jet aerodynamics and systems, specifically swept... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Feb 02, 2024 My interview took a little over two hours. The interviewer was a retired captain who had spent his entire flying career at SkyWest. He was very friendly and did a good job of easing any nerves. Most of the interview just felt like a casual conversation. If you can dedicate the time to study, the interview will be smooth. Have your logbook totaled up and know how much you’ve flown in the last 30/60/90/6M/12M. Additionally, have totals ready for all R-ATP mins including your night...

  8. Feb 01, 2024 Overall the interview was very straightforward. If you study the gouges here you will do great. We started off with some of the typical questions about qualifications and hours. After that we went into 3 “tell me about a time when” questions. Next were questions about jet aerodynamics and systems. Know the terms critical mock, mock tuck, coffin corner. Know the stage of a jet engine, what bleed air accomplishes, and hot vs hung starts. We took about a 5 minute break and then... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Feb 01, 2024 To start, make sure you have MS Teams figured out and set up. It is not as refined as Google Meet or Zoom. My interview started out with some unexpected audio/visual issues, which I was able to take care of promptly. The interview started out with the normal "Hello, my name is..." introductions, followed by what was to be expected for the interview. The Captain that I had for the interview then reminded me that while its okay to be nervous, to just take a deep breath and just have... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Jan 30, 2024 Really nice guy, started out with introductions. He set the tone of the interview which was very relaxed and advised that we'll just have a conversation and there is nothing to be nervous about. Talked about SkyWest as a company, why I want to work for SkyWest. Jumped into swept wing aerodynamics, coffins corner, mach tuck, mach buffet, and how to recover from mach tuck. Talked about weather, decoded a Metar, Taf, asked if we need an alternate? what does alternate airport need to list it as... Continue reading this interview experience
