    May 08, 2024 As you've been reading, all the other guides on here are correct. Show up 1 hour before, so you have time to fill some extra paperwork in the cafeteria. They have coffee there, and you can choose to bring your own water bottle like I did. Every staff member at TK has their own large bottle, since Denver is super dry and high elevation. You take the mini-tour, can buy stuff at the gift shop if you choose as well, then sit in a classroom until the pilots will come in 1 by 1 to get their... Continue reading this interview experience

    Apr 30, 2024 Got to the building where a lady guided me to the cafeteria and sat in there while I waited for my interview, everyone was extremely nice and multiple employees greeted me.

    Feb 29, 2024 The interview experience is exactly as stated by others, though the tour is not as elaborate as I thought it would be which I assume is for security and time constraints. The staff is very friendly and do the best they can to calm any nerves. They asked me 5 TMAAT questions. Some can be worded confusingly so be sure to take time to think of your answer. Regardless of your answers, there is no judgment about your answers, though you can tell when they want more information or when you... Continue reading this interview experience

    Feb 15, 2024 It was similar to how others describe. You first go into a cafeteria and sit with other applicants for maybe half an hour and just make conversation. After that a captain comes and gives us all a mini tour of the facility. Then he takes us all into a classroom and gives us a rundown of how this interview will look. Then the interviewers will come in and select applicants one by one. They will ask you 5-6 “tell me about a time” questions and then give you a little break. Then you...
