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. Jun 30, 2022 2.5 hours, Very low pressure. I studied the technical and CRM questions every day for a month and I did just fine. The only question that I struggled with was the star waypoint on a IAP Jepp plate is a gps... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jun 30, 2022 This interview gauge is spot on! My interview went in order of tell me about yourself, logbook review, tell about a time when, then technical. Here is what I got for technical: thunderstorm avoidance, virga, RVSM, coffin corner, swept back wing characteristics, turbine engine, electrical systems, METAR/TAF, alternate rules, Jepp approach plate coupled with 91.175 (scenario based). My interview was fairly short - maybe because I was a cadet? I was told I’ll hear something back within a... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jun 29, 2022 Interview was virtual with CRJ FO and lasted just under 2 hours. Began with FO’s background and journey followed by me giving an overview of mine. Verified documents, current flight times, etc. (Be very detailed and organized when you compile and submit). Went into some scenario ADM/CRM based questions- medical situation that kept evolving and I was the Captain (use all available resources and communicate with crew, ATC, Company, mitigate risk, make a decision) and then a couple...

  4. Jun 27, 2022 Online Video Interview: The interview was not as bad as I initially thought. A FO on the CRJ did my interview but we had problems as his computer kept logging him out throughout the process. We started out with tell me about yourself questions and why I wanted to work for SkyWest. We then did a logbook and certification review. After that he created an outline of a flight for me. As we went through the flight he asked my questions on airspeed restrictions and holding speed restrictions. He... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 27, 2022 My perspective is that this platform is to judge your overall fit more than knowledge. I studied the gouge and felt good but I do think I could have done better. I took the oral on Monday and got a call Friday morning offering me the position. Study the gouge on this website but also make sure you can share some life experiences, work history, that showcase your ability to get along with others and decision making abilities. Good...

  6. Jun 24, 2022 Exactly as described in other reports here. Just read up on the technical questions and know how to brief a Jepp chart and you will do just fine! Got a class date in the first month of next year, as I don't have my 1500 yet. They said I will get moved up once I have my 1500 hours. Great experience start to finish. Heard back 6 days later with a... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jun 23, 2022 The interview was very straightforward and only lasted 1 hour. We started with going over my hours and then went straight into TMAAT questions. After that we did the technical questions which covered multi-engine aerodynamics, swept wings, Mach tuck, electrical systems, IFR alternate rules, and... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Jun 16, 2022 Very relaxed interview. Most of my interview was spent getting to know me as a person. My interviewer and I had many mutual acquaintances, having lived and flew in the same area for the last 20 odd years. We discussed my total time as a pilot, why I had left the aviation industry for a spell. (view the study guide of this website).  We then went into some HR questions, TAATW I had a disagreement in the cockpit, leadership in former job positions, etc. The technical portion consisted of...

  9. Jun 14, 2022 Beginning of the interview was just basic get to know you questions. I was asked to tell them something about myself that isn’t on my resume. HR questions followed that. I was asked to define professionalism, and also what qualities I think a captain should have. That led to some CRM discussions. The technical portion was pretty basic and followed what this website already had. I had to explain the electrical system in my PA-28-161, critical engine determinations in the Apache I flew,...

  10. Jun 13, 2022 Interview began promptly and lasted for 1+40 with a SkyWest captain that had been recently promoted. 3 portions for the interview: HR questions, technical, and then weather/approach plates. Since I'm primarily a rotary guy, she wanted to know FW PIC, FW PIC CCX, FW Night, and Multi times along with my 90-day and 12-month FW flight totals. HR portion was straightforward with a couple of TMAAT questions centered on emergencies or a student giving a critique. She also asked what my current... Continue reading this interview experience
