I must admit the whole atmosphere was extremely relaxed and the employees expressed their gratitude which actually felt genuine.

Took a short break and started the technical portion. Very straight forward. Vectored off sid what altitude do you fly? Climb via what altitude do you set? Same questions on STAR. Asked when...

    Meet and Greet on 6/18/2024 We met at the chief pilot's office where the lead flight attendant spoke with my friend who was able to get me the meet and greet and I. She asked about a few fun things that popped out on my resume she wanted to hear more about. She asked me why United, made sure I knew the core values, and let me know what was going to happen in the next room. In the next room I met with the assistant chief pilot, another one of the pilots whom was former Navy (as am I), and an...
