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. Jan 20, 2022 Played a lot of games until they called us in. Trivia, heads up seven up, two truths and a lie. Some TMAAT questions, technical charts in South America, HR stuff. Really hit the "Why Spirit?"... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Jan 12, 2022 I attended an event. I arrived the night before and showed up for my scheduled meet the chief session 15 minutes early. I was waiting in a general lobby area when someone came out and took my name and then asked if I was ready to go early. He took me back into the meeting room and the room had about 10 tables set up along the sides with a Spirit rep sitting at the tables. I went to the first available table and handed the rep my resume. We did brief introductions and he just dove in asking... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Jan 07, 2022 Super relax make sure to be engaged all the time with staff and fellow pilots. Ask as many questions as you can (base ,pay ,benefits ,training ect) interview was very chill straightforward I thought I did horrible and got the job so just be kind be humble and let everybody know how happy you are to be there and excited about the opportunity. VERY IMPORTANT to establish why you want spirt for the long run they aren't looking for people that are using Spirit as a stepping stone. received the... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Jan 06, 2022 Great time with the Spirit folks. The games were a great way to distract from the interview nerves in the room. They want to see interaction and teamwork. Consider it part of your interview. Only one question I had not seen on here, (view the study guide of this website).  Mostly TMAAT questions with just a quick hit on the SEA ILS chart. Asked if I could begin/continue the approach before/ after the FAF. What if the centerline lights went out? Got the call 24 hours later. Excited to... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Jan 06, 2022 As previously stated, the questions posted here are good. It doesn't seem like there's a reason as to which questions you get, just be prepared. Have some good TMAAT stories & answers about customer service, difficult people & situations. The day started out with a presentation about the company with Q&A afterwards. They went around the room introducing themselves and after a short break they started calling individuals in for the interview portion. The order which people...

  8. Jan 06, 2022 Great experience! Played Spirit history trivia, Spirit destination trivia (airport codes) and heads up. The interview process was 20-25 minutes. Was treated as a casual conversation it felt like. They really are trying to gauge your personality. The experience I got from the people I met in my interview group is that if you're there already, you have a great personality and they want you there. They're going for a fun atmosphere here, so have fun at the interview. Just be you. TMAAT: -... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jan 06, 2022 A blend of WWYD and TMAAT that were all listed here . Technical portion was an approach plate and asked a few questions on it. Descent planning, things to help the aircraft to drop altitude if high and fast. Very great experience from beginning to end. Brush up on Spirit history and knowledge to be able to be competitive during the games while you wait. Spirit is all about the culture and the people, seems like a great place to work. They want to hire you, so show they you'll be a good fit... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Jan 06, 2022 The gouge listed here is spot on. The interview team does a wonderful job of putting you at ease. The interview session will start off with a quick company presentation and answering any questions. After that you'll split into teams and play a few Trivia games with all of the questions being Spirit centric i.e. trivia about the company history, operations, and places they fly, etc. One by one they'll call you back to go interview with a pilot and an HR rep. All of the questions were some... Continue reading this interview experience
