Arrived one prior to interview as instructed and met with other interviewees in the cafeteria. I must admit the whole atmosphere was extremely relaxed and the employees expressed their gratitude which actually felt genuine. The first part of the interview was HR where I met with a senior female captain and an HR rep. Both thanked me for being there and seemed pleased that I could make it. I understand everyone needs pilots but this was the most appreciated interview I can ever recall, which reduced the tension immensely! Both were kind and gave a spiel about how the interview would go, specifically they not only wanted TMAA answers but how did you deal with it and what did...

  1. May 10, 2022 Did my intro and then right into the 5 TMAAT.  Then technical was IAH-IAD. (view the study guide and Sim/Scenario section of this... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. May 10, 2022 Every recent gouge is exactly how my interview went. Everyone from the second you walk in is very welcoming and encouraging. Introductions and then jumped right in and asked about grades in college and various other questions about my app. 5 TMAAT questions heavily focused on leadership and personal learning experiences. Technical was basic decision making and IFR questions. Wish I had more to add but everything has been covered multiple times. I got the CJO the following business...

  3. May 09, 2022 Not the chill and easy experience from the other interviewers on this platform. While the format is the same the 5 tmaat questions were ones I have never heard or seen before and required some real in the moment thinking. The technical was as was talked about here on this site however my interviewer was very relentless and asked a lot more questions about obscure IFR scenarios that would be rare to encounter. Lots of digging and overall was very challenging and long. Did not get a chance to... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. May 03, 2022 This site had everything you need for the interview. The logistics are all accurate. Check in, head to the cafeteria and wait. People are all pulling for you. You are met by a recruiting pilot and taken on a tour of the facility. After the tour you go to a waiting room. Reminder, there are multiple interviews a day so the group you're with is small, mine was 4. When it's time, and they are prompt, the recruiting pilots come out and draft who they are interviewing. You are taken to... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. May 02, 2022 5 Mins to tell them about myself. 5 STAR questions about how you have dealt with issues in the past and how you would deal with them in the future. Mistakes, CRM successes and failures, making decisions. Technical was just like previous accounts - a full pre departure brief - questions about charts, SIDs and STARs Non-Normal, Checklist completion Debrief Comfortable environment, took 2...

  6. Apr 25, 2022 All the gouges here are accurate. Everyone you encounter is very laid back and welcoming. Know the packet and practice doing briefs using their 13 briefing items. Incorporate CRM/TEM buzzwords into your TMAAT answers. I got my CJO in about 24 hours after the interview. Class months are about 3 months out from what I...

  7. Apr 19, 2022 Welcome experience. 5 minute self pitch and 5 TMAT questions, asked some questions about the individual experiences. Technical was pretty straight forward, TO brief, anti-icing failure, what would you be concerned... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Apr 18, 2022 5 TMMAT questions. Brief technical asking about diversion, fuel requirements and current profiles on my aircraft. Very straight forward, they make you feel relaxed and they want you there. Customer service driven answers seems to be what they are looking for as United is trying to revamp their business and now wanting pilots to be more involved with the customer experience. It was a fantastic and professional... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Apr 12, 2022 The current gouge is accurate. Very friendly and welcoming. Once it starts, a HR rep and pilot bring you back to a small room. They introduce themselves and then ask about your career in 5 min or less. I just summarized my resume. Then had 5 TMAAT questions.  Had a 10 min break for the tech portion with the same pilot and HR rep. I had to give the pre-departure brief in the packet they gave us.  (view the study guide of this website).  No gotchas, just read the packet they... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Apr 12, 2022 Very similar experience and format to other interviews posted on here. Interview was scheduled for 10 am. Arrived about an hour early to complete paperwork and submit logbooks. Was taken on a training facility tour with a captain and then was called in for the interview from a waiting room. Panel consisted of a line captain and HR rep. First question was to walk them through my resume, followed by 5 TMAAT questions.  (TMAAT your authority was questioned, TMAAT you dealt with an... Continue reading this interview experience

    The content was as advertised and it was very useful. I knew what to expect at my interview and the types of questions that would be asked. I felt a lot more prepared.
