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. Sep 23, 2021 Video interview started with introductions and a review of logbook and verification of flight times. Next, I was asked about previous work experience from resume, and to talk about what I learned from each job and why I left. After that we got into HR question (tell me about a time when... why do you want to work for SkyWest... that sort of thing). We then went into the technical portion and started with aerodynamics. I was asked about lift and drag relationships (know the LD curve), high... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Sep 22, 2021 A few days after my resume was posted, I got an email to set up and online interview with a SkyWest pilot. I had a week and a half to study for the interview. Started at 2pm and we were done with intros and HR in 40 minutes. HR portion was very close to the gouge. I tried to relate everything to my time as a CFI and how I humanize conflict through honest questioning. My interviewer is a 5 year LCA. He did a great job getting me to relax. We then took a 5 minute break to refill water and... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Sep 22, 2021 Started on time as a Zoom style interview with a Captain for SkyWest. I was given his name in a previous email and sent out a message to my friends who are working at SkyWest to see if anyone knew him and would put a good word for me. Thankfully, I had 1 person who did know him and made the call. That was a nice icebreaker. We started with talking about our flying backgrounds and experiences. I am a Flight Engineer in the Air Force Reserve on C5's (using 500 of those hours)and he was a... Continue reading this interview experience

I was asked how to define critical engine, brief a basic ILS approach, airspace questions around a class bravo along with speeds. Not much CRM and nothing on jet engines or high altitude aerodynamics. Dress for success and be... Continue reading this interview experience

We talked about CRM and how to deal with unusual situations. Technical was aerodynamics, instrument procedures,... Continue reading this interview experience
