I made several new friends and was genuinely happy with the entire interview process. My in person interview was 2 on 1, with a Captain and an HR manager. They were both extremely nice and gracious. There were no gotcha questions, mine was a little more technical than what I heard from some of the others. I was asked to read an ATIS and brief an approach and whether I could land based off that ATIS (considering being both before and after the final approach fix), what if I saw the approach lights, and what did I need to land. I nailed all my answers and even went into derived alternate minimums and the Captain seemed pleased with all of it.  Also, they did have my aircraft specs for what I fly now and...

    Jan 02, 2024 They didnt believe I wouldnt leave Spirit for Delta. It was repeated questions about how Id retire from Spirit. I have no negative experiences, but it was very apparent a large portion of the interview was focused on personality and how you'd like quality of life. The interview was in Florida, and we had to pay for our own hotel, breakfast, transportation etc. They started late for their own interviews, and I had one management pilot, and one HR person. HR interview was about what would you... Continue reading this interview experience

    Dec 01, 2023 This was a great interview experience, first off this was for the pathway program as I am a 141 applicant through my University.

    Oct 05, 2023 I got the true Spirit experience on our way down there. I flew out at 10 AM and got to FLL at 11PM that night and had to cover 2 nights in hotel fees. When we showed up they were very nice and welcoming. They brought everyone who was interviewing into a big room with some breakfast food and played games which was a lot of fun. They gave us a brief run down of the company and explained what was going to happen. They brought a few of us into a room and interviewed each of us with a pilot and...
