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. Mar 22, 2023 Definitely a great experience, they really do their best to make you feel comfortable. As described in majority of these experiences, start out in the cafeteria and a pilot will come out and greet everybody, give you a small tour, and then into a classroom for any last minute questions. They will then take you one by one. You sit in a room with HR and pilot, tell me about yourself, and then right into the 5 TMAAT's, take 5-10 min break and into the technical. Lastly why United. Awesome... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Mar 21, 2023 Gouge was spot on. The interview happens very quickly. They will review your logbooks and read comments you may have made in the notes. Really recommend having your logbooks all converted into one and printed in the same format. I still brought the originals but made a note on the logbook list page stating that all data had been converted and printed in one format. The interview is Introduce yourself 5 TMAAT (Conflict, Emergency, Mentoring, Regret something in flight, Dealt with... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Mar 13, 2023 The whole proess was exactly as described by previous gouges. Everyone that passed you said good luck. it was really a great atmosphere and make you feel at ease. I had a group of 6. They get you one at a time out of a room and take you back to a small office where a pilot and HR person conduct the interview. I have done interviews, but felt this one was much more relaxed. They start of by asking how you got there. Then the 5 TMAAT quetions. (view the study guide of this website). ...

  7. Mar 13, 2023 Interview was almost verbatim from what others have described on this website. I stayed at one of the hotels across the street from the training center and took the hotel shuttle with 2 other candidates and arrived 1 prior to the interview. We checked in with the security guard at the front desk and received name tags to wear. From there we dropped off our luggage at a nearby room and proceeded to the cafeteria to wait for the interview. A few minutes later an A320 captain came to take us on...

  8. Mar 13, 2023 Everyone was extremely welcoming. They will have you meet in the cafeteria. From there you will drop off your logbooks and be giving a small tour. After the tour you will be brought into a classroom and the CA will introduce themselves and talk about United. After the short introduction she asked all of us about our background and talked about the interview process. Once they called my name to go back there I met with one HR rep and a FO. They gave their background and were extremely... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Mar 08, 2023 The gouge is spot on. Waited with the other applicants in the cafeteria until a captain came to meet us and take us on a tour of their museum and then brought us to a conference room to where our individual interviewers came to pick us up eventually. He was super nice and really brought the point home that they want to hire you. The interview was walk me through your flying career, 5 TMAAT questions, a break, and the technical. Know the 13 briefing items and be able to come up with a... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Mar 08, 2023 Exactly as the gouge on here went. Met up and went to cafeteria with the other candidates. Walked through the museum then straight to interview. 5 TMAAT (conflict in cockpit, mentored someone, most challenging flight, regretted a decision or action, changed the way you communicate to get the point across to a coworker). 5 minute break then straight into technical.
