There were three of us that interviewed that day, one CFII, one marine prowler pilot, and me (navy helo sh-60b pilot). The day started at 0830 with a company presentation. Then we did the CRM portion first. I was the PIC because I had the most time, the CFII was the SIC, and the marine was in the jump seat. The scenario was about a passenger who kept on getting up while we were taxiing out of the gate. They wanted to see team work, communication, and using all available resources. I was the PIC so I was expected to take charge and so there was more demanded of me. So if you have a bunch of hours, expect to be the PIC in the CRM scenario. The remaining were the HR and technical portions. My HR portion didn't start until after... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  2. Interview day was long. Started 8:30 am and lasted till 2pm, probably because they were busy with 30 cadet students were there and trying to organize the day between us. Start with orientation about 1 hour about the company history while some HR captain takes your logbook and all documents you have to look at. They said just resume but I have included all the certificates from college, awards, ground school certificates. Doesn't hurt. After orientation we start the technical portion. The...

  3. I did my interview off-sight. The first hour we spent going over the company presentation. If you're a cadet, this will sound familiar. After that they spilt up some of the candidates for technical and HR questions. I did technical first which lasted approximately 30 minutes. They're very friendly and wants to see you succeed. Expect to brief a Jepp STAR or Approach plate, I had to brief both. They're huge on electrical systems, so definitely know the electrical system on the aircraft you...

  4. Being a cadet, the interview was brief and straight forward. 4 of us were interviewed by 2 interviewers one at a time. They combined my HR and CRM portions into 1 which was convenient. The interviewer said I was the captain on a plane and the FA radioed saying someone says they have a bomb on board. He was just looking for what I would do in the situation. We then broke for lunch. After lunch we had the Technical subject interview. Most of the interview was just symbology from the Jeppesen... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Conducted by 1 CA and 2 FOs at FSI Denver. 4 interviewees - 1 air force (C-21s and U-28s), 1 navy (F/A-18 background but in a non-flying job currently), 2 CFIs in the SkyWest cadet program. Started with a presentation on the company while they looked at our logbooks and paperwork. Then 1-on-1 HR and technical--no CRM portion. Gouge on this site was crucial...turbofan engines, mach tuck, swept wings, coffin corner, weather systems, etc...studied all that the day prior for a refresher on...

  6. I first became interested in applying for the SkyWest FO position in December 2018. I have 4650 total hours of which 4150 is in various helicopters and 500 in airplanes (150 SE, 350 ME). I gained my ATP Airplane MEL in 1994 which was the last time I flew airplanes. Since I had a lot of experience in helicopters but no recent airplane experience, I ended up having numerous discussions with SkyWest to determine the application process, especially as it related to the ATP Airplane MEL. I was... Continue reading this interview experience
