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

  3. Sep 22, 2022 My interview started out with the interviewer telling me about himself and how he ended up at Skywest. He then turned it over to me and had me go through my aviation story and how I got to where I am today. He then asked for flight time totals and some details from my medical, passport, and FCC radio operator permit. Then I was asked standard HR questions that were already answered in the application.

  4. Sep 22, 2022 The interview went extremely well. It was later in the day and I was interviewed by a single Line-Check Captain who was easy going and fun to chat with.

  5. Sep 22, 2022 Very good experience interviewing with a experienced Capt. First 30 or so minutes was covering HR questions and back and forth getting to know you questions. The Capt did very well creating a positive and relaxed environment. The next 30 minutes covered a few TMAAT stories and he asked if I had done any prep. After confessing to reading the gouge he opted to change some questions that revolved around TMAAT concentrating on showing examples of effective CRM, decision making and...

  10. Sep 14, 2022 Great experience. My interviewer was very friendly and casual and put me at ease from the second they came on screen. The platform the interview used worked great on my MacBook on Safari. The interview only lasted a little over an hour, and some of that time was general introductions and answering questions I had. If you study seriously and practice explaining things out loud, you’ll do great and have a quick interview. Make sure to pre-prepare your hours breakdowns to expedite the...
