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. Aug 10, 2022 Interview is exactly like what’s described. Quick intro, 4-5 TMAATs, technical portion (DEN-LAX) very high level they don’t want you to get into the weeds, finally why United? So long as you have some stories ready to go and have studied the guide they send you and look at the questions answered on here you’ll be fine. Only thing I would add extra is know the Memory items for your aircraft. I was also asked what constitutes a stabilized approach so know that also. They are...

  2. Aug 08, 2022 Great website here, both the behavioral (TMAAT) and the Technical portion where spot on. Knowledge of the technical assessment packet is key here. Was asked the 7 CRM skills that are filtered through the debrief model after the flight is done. For the United initial briefing items i went in a different order as my current airline uses them but in a different order, interviewer didn’t seem to mind the order as long as they were all covered. Is best to be very specific here in this... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Aug 04, 2022 Overall, very pleasant and positive experience. After dropping off logbooks we were given a quick tour and sequestered in a waiting room. Called out one by one for HR, which consisted of the intro and about 4-5 TMAAT questions, followed by a short break. Brought back in for the tech portion, which is straight forward and as expected. Just be very thorough and considerate, and include the United briefing items and CRM/TEM concepts. Finally, "Why United." CJO followed a day... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Aug 03, 2022 Just like previous gouge. Very relaxed environment. HR questions were 5 tmaat. Use the star format and you’ll be fine. Tech portion is easy if you study the packet you are given (briefings, crm/tem) They definitely want to hire you; they just want to match you with the... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Aug 02, 2022 Met with one HR rep and one Line Captain. Both were super friendly and gave brief bios before starting the interview. They explained the format of the interview: part 1 is an HR portion made up of 5 TMAAT questions, followed by a short 5-10min break, then a technical portion. Started the HR portion.  Then 5 TMAAT questions.  (view the study guide and SimScenario section of this website).  Then Technical Portion.  Finished up the interview with, “we know lots of...

  6. Aug 01, 2022 Most of the gouges on here are very accurate. Take island 512, last island on the left is the crew shuttle to the training center. From there you can catch a shuttle to the hotel; make sure you stay there because it's closest. Shuttles leave from the hotel at :00 and :30 every hour and take less than 5 minutes to get there. Make sure you get there 45 minutes early. Check in takes a few minutes while you get ID'd and badged. Pilots are very friendly and will walk up and wish you good...

  7. Aug 01, 2022 Interview was as advertised on previous AviationInterviews write-ups. Arrived at 705 AM for a 715 AM start and we checked in with security who gave us rubber bands for our logbooks. You will need to bring both electronic and paper if you have them. A pilot came and got us from the cafeteria around 730 AM and we got a quick look around the training center and sent to the museum in the training center waiting for the interviewers to get ready. We got one final brief and were then chosen one... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Jul 29, 2022 You arrive 45mins before and check in at security (I took the 11am shuttle from the hotel across the street for a 12:30 interview, getting me there a little over an hour early). If you’re flying out after, they have a luggage room. There’s a separate door for people with luggage, you won’t go in through the circular doors you pass first, keep going right around the corner. Wait in the cafeteria with the other candidates (the only people in suits). Once they come and get you... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jul 26, 2022 Tell us about yourself. Tell us about this checkride failure. TMAAT: Group missed a deadline or failed. (They probed a bit on follow up as I chose a poor story). You made a decision without all the facts. (Again, a bit of a probe and follow up). You were pressured to do something. You were looked to for leadership. You made a positive change to the organization. TSA was pretty chill and high level. Departure brief. SID, top altitude in the alerter. FWD Entry Door caution (seat belts, cabin...

  10. Jul 26, 2022 Honestly it was pretty much word for word that’s on here from others. They make you feel relaxed. 5 TMAAT questions. Tech was chair flying from start to finish. That was it. Good luck to... Continue reading this interview experience

    I felt much better prepared for my interview, especially for the technical portion. I found the mixed in TMAAT questions as you scroll to really help prepare me to answer random TMAAT questions in the interview.
