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 10, 2021 Very nice guy. Did it with Mat. We chatted for a while at first and he said he wouldn’t bother me with a technical since I already passed a 121 experience before. This will probably not be an experience most... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jun 09, 2021 Did the HR Video on demand with the 7 questions. The questions where just like all the other's experience. Submitted the HR portion and heard back the next day to schedule the rest of the interview. I put it out 5 days to study some more. My interviewer was a Captain that flew the CRJ and currently the ERJ. We started off introducing ourselves and our past experience. Then moved into the CRM portion, (view the study guide of this website).  We then moved onto 121 operations in IFR.... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jun 09, 2021 Very laid back interview. Started with get to know you questions, then went into checkride failures. After that, we discussed some situational questions. Very common sense questions.  We then moved to technical questions. and some other random, easy questions. I did not have to brief an approach plate (which was kind of odd). Then we wrapped it up and they said I'd hear within the week. I got a call the next day with the 175 in DEN. Good luck... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jun 09, 2021 Initially received an on demand video interview where you record yourself in a series of questions (6 or 7) that really aren't difficult but you're only given 2 times to record an answer.  After that went through I received an email to schedule a technical interview. Once scheduled you receive an email and they tell you things to study which will be whats on your interview. Started off just getting to know each other a little bit and she was very easy to talk to and made me feel... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 09, 2021 The current COVID protocol appears to be consistent based on all of the recent feedback submitted on this site. About a week before I was invited to interview I received a auto generated email that said they will keep me posted about beginning the interview process in the coming weeks. Next I received an invite to interview where you answer about 7 HR questions online. Some of those you will video yourself answering them and you have a couple attempts. The website has some good...

  6. Jun 09, 2021 Really easy interview. The interviewer made me feel comfortable. It’s easy if you are prepared. Spent around a week to study. They called me the day after interview and she said I wanted to call personally and offer you a job. Also asked what plane I want and was given what I... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jun 08, 2021 Started with the general HR stuff, checked documents etc. (make sure you have your passport, logbook, and FCC license. "Why do you want to work for Skywest?" (view the study guide of this website). Then did a few "tell me about a time questions" that led into dealing with difficult captains, and weather scenarios (since my story had to do with weather). Talked about thunderstorms. Went over systems of my current aircraft, asked about a few electrical items. Then moved... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Jun 08, 2021 Was a nice experience. Honestly I really felt it was fair. Started off with a get to know you then in to technical.  I was also given a metar to read. As others said the more knowledgeable you are the better it is. Just be truthful and honest. HR questions were standard fair, (view the study guide of this website). I hope this helps someone. You wont know if you got the job just then and... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jun 08, 2021 Interview experience was great. The pilot who interviewed me was very professional and answered all my questions. I agree with all the other applicants that the study guide questions on this website are very helpful. Spend the time UNDERSTANDING all the topics (CRM scenarios, HR questions and technical questions which all are covered in the study guide) and you should do very...

  10. Jun 08, 2021 As many others have mentioned below, the interview was nothing but laidback and informative. We started with some quick questions about my resume (places worked, both inside and outside of the aviation industry), then moved onto some basic HR questions about the schedule of a SKW pilot—basically asking you if you're okay working on reserve after starting out. Afterwards, we moved onto the Technical portion, which consisted of everything mentioned here. (view the study guide of this... Continue reading this interview experience
