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

  1. May 16, 2022 The interview was a lot shorter than I was expecting. I was very well prepared and was very thorough in answering all of the technical questions. I must of made a good impression as the interviewer cut it fairly short after the first few questions. The actual interview was very low key and... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. May 11, 2022 Very easy going interview. Had a ERJ Captain based in KSLC and he was very talkative. The interviewer told me this is not a test, they just want to see if you studied and came prepered to the interview. The interview lasted no longer than 1:30. We started by going over my logbook and flight documents. The HR questions that I was asked were the same as on the application. Then we went into technical questions: Departure alternate - 123 rule for alternates - Exp. 17347 - Read an Approach... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. May 09, 2022 Interview was with a ERJ Captain from SLC. I did as the website told and joined about 15 mins early to be ready and played with the interview interface to become familiar. It started off with simple introductions, he told me about himself, like how long he has been at SkyWest, some flying stories, and about a hobby we happened to have in common. They really are trying to get to know you and see "if you are someone they can stand to be with for 4 days" (almost his exact words). I... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Apr 29, 2022 Interviewer was a Senior Captain Initially we had a friendly chat and he just wanted to get to know my flying history. I spent about a month preparing so had plenty of time. I bought an scrap exercise book to put all my study notes. Read up on jet engine theory, TAFS and Metars and all that weather stuff. Read uo on Jepp Plates and studied on Jepp Plates. some of the term in weather forecast are American and I am from Australia. so things like SM Statue Miles done appear here in Australia as...

  6. Apr 27, 2022 It was an incredibly relaxed interview. My interviewer was an E175 captain out of SLC, and I also had a PHX F/O on the CRJ training to be a pilot recruiter. We started out by asking if I had any questions about airline life, about SkyWest, about seniority etc. After talking about that for a little bit they asked if I was willing to sit reserve, potentially relocate, etc. They covered the hours I have, and made sure all of my documents were in order. Then we started with the HR questions.... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Apr 26, 2022 The interview was pretty straightforward. It started with introductions of the company which took about 10 minutes, and then he asked me to introduce myself. He then went into the CRM phase and the scenario stage asking questions.  We then went into the tech questions. Make sure you know the systems of the most complicated airplane you've flown because he asked me about that. The rest of the questions were about jepp, high-speed flight aerodynamics, and just briefly some turbine theory.... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Apr 22, 2022 Reading through all the other interviews, I felt pretty well prepared. It was a Virtual interview with an E175 Captain.

After that moved into technical and was pretty similar to most interview write ups here. Started out with METAR/TAF and Q/A on alternates and Exemption 17347 (asked if I knew what...
