Read Page 1 ... to start the interviews with the zip codes that are furthest away so they can start sending people to their flights, but even so they try to wrap up the day and get everyone out by 1400. 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...

  1. Apr 06, 2020 Very straight forward and low key video interview. Was asked questions that are listed in the gouge and felt very prepared. Waiting to hear back with further details after covid. All in all I felt prepared and relaxed by reviewing the gouge. I was not asked many hr type questions and was asked more questions regarding tell me about a time and what if questions with a few technical to... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Mar 10, 2020 I went through with a flow with my current regional company. Put my application online and did the gallup assessment, however I skipped the phone interview with the flow agreement. I live around FLL, came in for the interview at 730. Doors opened officially around 820am. We all piled in to our assigned seats with our name tags on it. They started with a presentation about spirit, they staff then took turns introducing themselves. All the applicants then took their turns. After this, they...

  4. Mar 10, 2020 I was not given a training date due to COVID-19. I was told as soon as classes resume we will be called. My interview was held at the Embassy Suites Fort Lauderdale 0800. All interviewees started to congregate around the conference room at 0730. We were all let in at around 0820. First was a presentation about Spirit given by the Fort Lauderdale Chief Pilot. After we went around the room and introduced ourselves. The first interviewees we're called out. Next two base reps started up playing... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Feb 28, 2020 Great interview process, super laid back and fun. Great group of candidates with a lot of different backgrounds both flying and personal. Standard questions asked, very friendly and stress free. I even fumbled though a few questions but I think they could see I was just being genuine. They don't want robots or status quo answers. Take the time to put together a small binder with all the documents they want and have your logbooks professionally done. It shows you are putting the effort in...

  6. Feb 28, 2020 Interview was exactly as described here. Very relaxed atmosphere, everyone was nice and informative. Interview started at 8 am, with introductions, then a brief presentation. Everyone participated in a few games while a few where called out to interview. 2 on 1 panel. HR questions where exactly as mentioned here. Technical question depends on your background, I was asked to brief an approach plate. You break for lunch around noon, and everyone sits together, including those conducting the...

  7. Feb 28, 2020 The gouge here is spot on. It was quicker than I imagined the actual interview. Be confident and cordial. They want to hire everyone but want the people who enjoy being there and would be a good fit. Just know why you want to join Spirit! I was asked how I view myself as a pilot from 1-10. I said 9.5 and the CP gave a 9.5 technical question... define Known... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Feb 19, 2020 Same as all the other interviews that were submitted. Once you show up, you take a seat and they start the introductions. A little about the company, and the future plans. Then they go around the room and everyone introduces themselves. We started playing games and you could tell most people were pretty nervous. The games were to get everyone in a more relaxed mood and it really did relax you before you go in for the interview! Questions I got were typical TMAAT questions and the technical...

  9. Feb 13, 2020 There was at least 20 of us in the room. Everybody wore a shirt and tie. Everybody was very friendly and got to know each other before the interview begin. They did some presentations and then some get to know each other games. They took us from the room and interviewed one by one while the rest of us played games. I was told they watch you very closely to make sure that You are getting to know people and are friendly. Overall I thought the interview was very enjoyable and I couldn’t...

  10. Feb 12, 2020 Same as all the others - chilled process - they put you at ease so they can observe you in a more natural environment rather than just suits carrying resumes. Panel interview with HR + 1-2 pilots. Alternates requirements - if you are confident and on for first few questions (I was), then the Jepp approach chart review is minimal, others had a much more extensive tech review. HR had several TMAAT. Everyone gets "Why Spirit?" - don't have a good answer - have a GREAT answer. Not... Continue reading this interview experience
