Read Page 1 ... reviewed my logbook/hours during this portion and we discussed when I would be available to start since I have a contract with my current work for the time being. We also did an informal CRM scenario. There was no timer, and no other people in the room, just a simple discussion about what to do if you have an upset passenger. It was very relaxed and they were mostly looking for you using all your resources and communicating with all the applicable people. Next I went back to the main room and waited while other applicants went. After awhile I was selected to do the technical portion first. It was probably an hour long and we discussed turbine engine theory, high speed aerodynamics, IFR regulations... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Oct 14, 2021 I submitted my application on a Sunday and heard back from the recruiter by Tuesday morning. She emailed asking if I have a FCC license and a current 1st class medical, which I didn't have either at the time I applied, but had a appointment for a medical later that week and had just applied for my FCC the day after I applied. I emailed that back and about an hour later I received an email that said they were wanting to schedule an interview. I submitted the requested documents online (FCC,...

  2. Oct 14, 2021 Took about 2 days after applying to hear back that they wanted to schedule an interview. Had to submit paperwork on an online portal before getting an email with a few different days of options to interview on. On the day of the interview, it's a straight forward website like zoom to interview on. Did HR questions, verified flight time etc. Took a 10 minute break and jumped into technical questions which consisted of high altitude aerodynamics. (view the study guide of this website). There...

  3. Oct 14, 2021 Heard back the same day, the gouge is super helpful! Know instrument stuff, jet engine aerodynamics, and jepp plates. Lasted about 40 minutes... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Oct 13, 2021 Interviewer was extremely pleasant and personable. He wants to check if he feels comfortable flying with you and that you will be happy in the company. The first half an hour was spent on introductions and talking about the aviation industry as a whole. Some PRIA necessary questions...rapid fire, unless you have something else to disclose. The technical part was high speed aerodynamics: swept wing pros and cons, Critical Mach, Coffin Corner, swept wing stall characteristics, few Jepp... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Oct 13, 2021 After applying, I received an invitation to interview in less than 24 hours, and then after the interview, I received my CJO, aircraft (Embraer), and class date less than 24 hours later. I was sent a link prior to the interview with the website so I was able to familiarize myself with how the software worked prior to the call. I did my interview with a senior FO on the CRJ and it was very straightforward and took about an hour and a half or two hours. There was a brief introduction...

  7. Oct 11, 2021 Interview was all virtual. Gouges on here are pretty accurate. HR and logbooks verification lasted about 20 minutes. Technical Areas (45 minutes) covered: FARS, high altitude aerodynamics, Jet engine basics (absolute basics), systems on most current plane. Briefed 1 jep approach plate. Things I didn’t know were: “derived alternate minimums” (121), I stumbled a little on jet engine stuff but he gave hints. Honesty, he/she just wants to make sure you are teachable. They want to hire you.... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Oct 11, 2021 Experience and questions were as advertised on this site. Interview opened with some get-to-know you chit chat. Interviewer was professional, but relaxed, working from home. I asked questions about working at SkyWest, the hub I want to fly out of, and CRJ/ERJ differences. HR portion was next, and very straight-forward, maybe 6-9 questions. Then right into the technical portion covering aerodynamics, turbine engines and accessories, and weather rules, probably 20-30 questions. Some of these... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Oct 11, 2021 My interview lasted about an hour and 50 minutes. The technical portion was about an hour long and my interviewer was fairly thorough. I had some questions at the end that extended the interview a little bit. I heard back 3 days later and was offered the job. For preparation I would say the gouge is all you really need. Even though my technical portion was longer, I studied the gouge very hard and did really well. One thing to note is that my interviewer was looking for the electrical system...
