FREE Spirit Airlines pilot interview information and gouge

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. Sep 24, 2021 I really hate to be the guy that says “the gouge is accurate.” Anyways…the gouge is accurate. The TMAAT and WWYD questions are all located in the gouge. It did seem that most were getting questions regarding an ILS in central/S America, a departure out of DFW, ILS 16C SEA, and a departure out of Bogota. I cannot say enough about how pleasant the experience is. I was stressed to the max going in, but found that my stress level decreased significantly during the process. FWIW, my group...

  2. Sep 09, 2021 I did the virtual interview with a chief pilot and HR rep. Started out with tell me about your self and your resume. I didn’t even go over my resume because when I stopped talking he jumped straight to the next question.  A couple quick questions about an approach. And one aerodynamic questions about adverse yaw. Then they give you some time to ask questions. I suggest doing so. 35 minutes total. Don’t have long detailed stories because it come across that they don’t...

  3. Sep 09, 2021 Gouges here are pretty spot on for both HR & tech. briefed SID out of DTW. went over MSA, speed & altitude restrictions. approach plate.  Few pretty simple flying scenarios. If you’ve been flying professionally for any amount of time, you shouldn’t have too many issues, if any at... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Sep 09, 2021 This website was spot on. I did the online interview and it started by showing my certificates, medical etc. Then HR questions, tell me about who you are and how you got into aviation and why Spirit. Most of the other questions relate as to why Spirit and to see if you are a good fit. They are looking for people who will be able to adapt to the diverse culture, that is key. Also questions regarding, TMAT regarding captains, time if You had to take over the flight, basically the questions... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Sep 09, 2021 Virtual interview went exactly as outlined on here. HR rep came on first then chief pilot and made their introductions. They asked me to introduce myself and then walk them through my resume. Then some quick TMAAT questions from here. Most geared towards how you would handle situations with other crew members. Seemed like they wanted to make sure you're a good fit for their diverse inclusive culture. A couple safety questions.  Then a few basic yes/no HR questions at the end. It was a...

  6. Sep 02, 2021 Was invited to the afternoon session, arrived a bit early around 12pm to great other candidates. Everyone was invited into the meeting room around 1pm. Started off with Spirit company presentation followed by some Q&A. Then played a game of 2 truths and a lie. In the meantime people were pulled for the interviews while we continued playing games. Later split up in groups and did some Spirit trivia. Info of places Spirit flies to and you had to guess the city and give the 3 letter airport... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Sep 02, 2021 I was incredibly pleased with the information that was given on "aviationinterviews.com" concerning the interview with Spirit. Questions were quite spot on. HR/Tech interview were fairly straight forward, including a few "tell me a time when" questions. (view the study guide of this website).  Just be genuine, but remain professional. It's very easy to get "too relaxed" throughout the whole process here. When asked questions involving approach and... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Sep 02, 2021 Just like everyone else has said on here, the interview process is a great experience. I submitted my application online, took the personality assessment that day, and set up the phone interview the following morning. The phone interview was basically verifying you are who you said you are on your application, and the big "Why Spirit" question. I was part of the 3rd group to do an in person interview since they restarted. Try to be friendly and interact with the other candidates;... Continue reading this interview experience
