No surprises here. As advertised, the interview is exactly what is listed on this website, worth every penny, even if it's just to put you at ease. We had a very large interview group of 38 people, which surprised me, but when you start lining up around 0730, I started trying to meet everyone. They opened the doors around 0800, started with a company introduction/presentation on a projector. Take good notes! They then went around the room and introduced themselves and had each candidate introduce themselves, providing your name, where you live, aircraft you are currently flying, and then one thing that isn't on your resume. Pay attention, and show interest in the others, they are likely going to be your sim partners! After that they were calling us back to begin our fingerprinting. Make sure you bring to the interview all of your pilot licenses, medical, passport, logbooks etc. They do try... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. Jul 06, 2022 My Interview went exactly same as what’s written here.  I been asked cat 1 min.  What’s required to see go below cat 1 min.SID Colombia bogota, also asked me what are you going to do if I could not reach climb restrictions.  What a good captain should be? During waiting period you will have a group games where Spirit flys and airport code, longest flight route, at the end of game the group won will get small prize.  It was fun to attend the interview I hope to...

  2. Jul 01, 2022 It was super laid back and straight forward. HR questions were all ones from the gouge on here. Technical questions were simple: alternate requirements, alternate minimum requirements, 91.175, where is the final approach segment, what visibility do you need, oroacas, reading an approach plate, arrival, departure plate. A lot of tell me about a time when questions… the approach plate I was show was the ILS 16C at Seattle and the departure was out of... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jun 27, 2022 This website was correct on all accounts. Interview with 1HR and 1 Pilot. Asked general questions that are all on this site, no surprises. Had 1 ILS chart, 1 SID, 1 STAR. Walked through each chart talking about altitude and speed restrictions etc. Nothing complicated. I wasn't perfect with the charts, they seem to just want to know that you can read a Jepp Plate. Make sure you look for exceptions and oddities on the plates. They purposely don't pick the easiest... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Jun 09, 2022 Gouge is spot on. This was at a MTC event. Basic IFR questions. 5 TMAAT questions all from the gouge. Pretty much rapid fire questions for a very fast process. Go in for a morning block and get done fast and an on the spot... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Jun 09, 2022 Meet the chiefs is the way to go. 2 part interview. Part 1, called into a room with 5 other applicants and interviewers. walkthrough of your resume and flying history. Tell me something about you not on your resume. Fairly laidback. Part 2 you get called into the same room again, however it is conducted with a line pilot and someone from HR. Pilot asked all the technical questions (in my case how the anti-ice system operated) and TMAAT questions. HR asked everything else. Make sure you're... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jun 08, 2022 Great Experience, relax and calm. Make sure to prepare your resumes, bring your recommendation letters and prepare all the requested information. Review your TMAAT questions and your technical questions as most of the questions were mentioned here, just a few surprises that if you know your plane, you should be good. Good luck to...

  7. Jun 08, 2022 As others have said, Meet The Chiefs is the way to go if you want to come here. Very laid back and great group that wants you to be there. "Why Spirit?" is the hard hitting question, they don't want people who are trying to grab the type and split, you have to want to be here and stay here. Questions are straight from the gouge, just be yourself and relax. Good... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Jun 08, 2022 MCO MTC: Pretty straight forward. Why Spirit sets the tone.. Trans ALT vs Trans Lever. Bogata SID: Just walk them through how you’re going to do it. No gotchas. Have a good attitude and be happy to be... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jun 08, 2022 Quite honestly cannot provide anymore additional feedback that isn’t here already. Attend the meet the chiefs and be ready to interview. Be a team player! They’re very interested in your character and expect you to answer the tech questions with ease. They’re not difficult but be ready. It went very smoothly and everyone was very friendly. Very low stress. Have fun with... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Jun 08, 2022 I attended a Meet the Chiefs event (highly recommend), and had a fun time with the experience. Was invited to speak to a current pilot and was asked if I wanted to wait around for a few hours to see if an opportunity arises for an actual interview. I was able to do an interview in the afternoon. Very laid back, basic tell me a time when, technical questions, etc. Know the "why Spirit" question and be real with it. Overall very...
