The interview was rather short and pretty relaxed for the most part. It started with an hour presentation over the company that reviewed how it was started, who runs it, company goals/plans, schedules, pay, and benefits. After the presentation was over, they selected interviewees to either go to a room to sit down with HR first or go to a room to sit down with somebody who will ask you technical questions. The HR part was rather simple as they started by running through my resume and asking me questions about it. After that they asked me HR questions that were exclusively on this site. The HR interview was rather simple and fast as it took only about 5 to 10 minutes. The technical portion was a bit longer and was... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Oct 01, 2020 Very pleasant and professional. All the interviewers had 20+ years with Atlas. Interview was virtual with video and audio. I wore a suit. They supplied me with 2 pages of material to prepare with. METAR/TAF, PROG CHARG, APPROACH PLATE. I studied these in detail for a couple of hours. Some obscure data that has to be looked up. They seem more interested in my resourcefulness in finding answers than my memory. Very practical. Asked some procedures about my current AC. Basic scenario...

  3. Sep 16, 2020 HR - Nothing out of the ordinary. Interview was laid back and examiners were very nice. Around 20-25 mins.   Tech - Studied up on gauge, but interviewer asked a little more. Interviewer mentioned they are trying to ask you questions that you are not prepared for, and want to see how you react to it. Around 1hr 15 mins.  (view the study guide of this...

  4. Aug 18, 2020 I applied back in March, and I was not contacted for an interview until the end of July. Overall, my experience with the interview group at Southern/Atlas was great. I am currently an FO at a regional, but applied in hopes of changing things up a bit. The HR interview was very straight forward, and I don't think I was asked a single question that isn't currently on this site. The tech interview consisted of many questions from the gouge. They will absolutely want you to have a firm knowledge... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jun 10, 2020 Interview is nonspecific to Southern, also Read the Atlas experiences also to get the most complete information! Relatively straightforward experience similar to other recent Southern and Atlas posters. HR questions were nothing out of the ordinary from any other aviation interview.  (view the study guide of this website).  Technical interview was very similar to the Southern and Atlas study guides on here. We briefly talked about the ice protection on my airplane. Some decision... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. May 19, 2020 Started with the mandatory company presentation. It reviewed company structure, benefits, and lifestyle. This was completed via video conference software and did not require candidates to turn on their cameras or microphones. Questions were answered via a textual chat. A week later I did my HR and Tech Panel interviews. Both were very friendly and laid back, as others have stated. The HR panel covered standard HR questions. They tried to relate a lot of the questions to my background which... Continue reading this interview experience

Tech Panel and HR panel was straight forward. Asked about flight experience and why I wanted to work at Southern. Be honest! The Tech Panel First Officer on the 777 took extra time to answer questions about the company, family life, quality of life, union questions etc. Really looking forward to work...
