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. Jun 01, 2023 This interview was for SkyWest Charter.  Interview was very relaxed, more a conversation than an interview. It went for 45 mins and was the second of 2 online interviews. There were no tech questions. There was a quick intro, followed by "tell us about a time" questions specifically relating to my previous roles. Time for questions at the...

  2. May 25, 2023 I had more HR questions than technical. Study all the questions on the study guide and you will be fine. I would spend more time on jepp charts than anything.  (view the study guide of this... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. May 25, 2023 A long but fairly relaxed interview. Lasted about 2.5 hours. Everything the gauges said was true, during the interview we went over hours, typical HR questions, when it came to the weather we used real world weather to read a metar, TAF, and to determine whether or not we would need an alternate, high altitude aerodynamics, went over jepp plates including some of the lesser known symbols on the airport diagram. I didn’t know all the answers to every question, but was honest when I... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. May 23, 2023 Interview was with a relatively new FO, and it followed others experience here pretty closely. Started with some HR questions, why I got in to flying and what I'm doing now, a few TMAAT, then some CRM. I was FO, and the Captain was flying but didn't want to put landing data in the computer because he 'knew' the jet so well and didn't need the computer to tell him what to do. That violated SOPs so what should I do. Main point was explain to the captain it's a safety concern, call a go around... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. May 23, 2023 A new FO interviewed me for just under 2 hours. We started with going over 30 day, 60 day, 90 day, 1 year, PIC, XC, IR, night landings, and night hours, and multi engine logbook totals. (view the study guide of this website).   CRM portion involving diversion due to thunderstorms along route, when you reach your destination there is LLWS reported, what are you paying extra special attention to on this landing? Your first landing was floated and now you need to decide what to do... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. May 22, 2023 Interview was pretty straightforward the interviewer was very nice she wasn’t too serious she had a nice attitude we started with introducing ourselves then we went into couple HR questions, (view the study guide of this website) Then we went into logbooks and experience after that we went into technical questions she gave me a METAR and TAF to read they dont expect you to know everything just say where would you find it they go over systems of the plane you are most comfortable in...

  7. May 18, 2023 Everything that I studied here was on the interview. Mock tuck, critical mock, brief an approach. I was only asked two HR questions. One was how did you get into flying, and what was your worst day flying. For the technical I was sent a series of Jepp charts DURING the interview. I was shown the ground chart for MSP and asked if starting from concourse A, who do I need to contract from push back to take off. He gave me an ATIS readout and asked me if I could start the approach given under... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. May 18, 2023 Overall went great! Interviewer was very nice and welcoming. Didn't dig deep on any certain topic, and just keep the interview moving. Study the questions and look over the other gouges and it will go... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. May 17, 2023 As stated in other comments, the interview is virtual. Initially it took a couple of minutes to sync audio and video. Once that got situated, I broke the ice saying that was a CRM exercise. A current FO who was about to upgrade to captain is who interviewed me. Very professional and "down to earth". It was two guys talking about pilot stuff is how the interview felt. First off, it was the standard tell me about yourself and your flying career, logbook review, then right into the...

  10. May 16, 2023 Interview was exactly 2.5 hours. Started off by introducing himself and how he got into aviation. Then I gave my introduction and how I got into aviation as well as my background and experience. We went through some basic HR questions he was required to ask. A lot of the technical questions that are on this site are asked word for word so no surprises there. Study the Jeppesen legend document they email you. A lot of the answers for what symbols mean are on there. It was a nice flow and... Continue reading this interview experience

    It did a good job of preparing me for my interview. I liked how many study questions and the reviews from people who had recently interviewed.
