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. Nov 23, 2021 The entire interview process was very personable and my interviewer made it such an enjoyable experience. The first 20 minutes was pretty much talking about our interests and how life was for the most part. Then we dove into some TMAAT questions. Was asked favorite and least favorite parts of my job as a CFI and a few other HR questions then we went right into the technical questions. If you study everything on the gouge, you'll do great. We covered 91.169 (1-2-3 rule), high altitude... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Nov 22, 2021 After applying, I heard back from Recruiting in one business day. I could choose from virtual interviews as soon as two days out. My virtual interview was on a good platform and it was a good experience. My interviewer was fantastic -- he really put me at ease and asked very fair questions. We started out with some mandatory questions, and then he asked me what was required for an ATP certificate. Form there we went into the HR portion of the interview and covered 5 or 6 of the common... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Nov 22, 2021 Study the areas they give you and you should do fine. We started with weather reading metars, tafs, and synopsis. Also know 91.175 very well, speed limits including holding speeds. Go through chapter 15 from the airplane flying handbook and the aerodynamics of the swept wing. His questions were very simple from these topics. Definitely know your Jeppesen charts and think through them rather than just talking... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Nov 18, 2021 All of the interview questions and scenarios on the website were very accurate. Interviewed with Captain based in ORD, she said at the end of the interview that it went very well and that she would forward the info to HR. Heard back from HR 4 days later with a job offer and ATP and ground school date in the... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Nov 17, 2021 The gouge follows the interview process very well. Started with the typical get to know you questions. We then moved on to the HR portion, which didn't have a tone of questions. The technical side covered alternates, turbine theory, high speed aerodynamics, Jepp. charts (SID and Approach plates), CRM scenario, weather was also covered. We also covered systems of my most complex aircraft flown, not the most current flown. Overall was a really good experience even with it being... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Nov 16, 2021 Very pleasant, relaxed, fair, and professional interview. The interviewer was a captain with the company and started off with telling me about himself. Then it was my turn. (that took a while since I've been in aviation for some time coming from a rotor background) Following that we went through my logbooks together and determined I need a few more specific hours I was lacking to meet all the ATP requirements before class starts which wasn't a problem for him. We spoke about reserve and... Continue reading this interview experience
