FREE United Airlines Aviate pilot interview information and gouge

It started where they took us into the cafeteria at the Denver, CO flight training center. Many of the United pilots stoped to ask us if we were here for the Aviate interviews and made into small talk. I could clearly tell that everyone wanted us to succeed and was actually interested in our previous training/schools. After waiting for about 20 minutes someone came out and took the 6 of us...

  1. Sep 17, 2021 Great interview team, really focus on answering questions specifically in the STAR... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Aug 17, 2021 Definitely review the packet they provide you. 90% of my technical questions were listed on here (yes, only a couple questions outside of the technical packet they give you)! Pleasant interview experience. I recommend rubbing elbows with all the United pilots you encounter, they couldn’t be friendlier. For the HR portion, just have plenty of anecdotes that show off good ADM and try to plan ones that are aviation related. Use the STAR format and keep them concise. They will ask...

  4. Aug 13, 2021 Showed up to the United FTC in Denver, CO. United will fly you in and out though a hotel or transportation to and from DEN to the FTC was on my own dime. Go through security and meet up with the other Aviate candidates in the cafeteria waiting for the interview to start, went into one of the class room where they collected our logbooks. Once the logbook reviews were done they called me and another candidate and had us walk over to building C where our interview would be. I started with the...

  5. Aug 13, 2021 Useful gouge. Emphasis on TMAT, why United. Flight plan was basic, cover charts if using a sid or star. Memorize call outs on packet. Use good judgement on stories about decision making, emphasize how as a crew you worked through a problem. Followed current company SOPs for handling situations. They asked questions specific to the flight plan you prep, how much fuel? Why this altitude? What happens if we hold... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Aug 11, 2021 Everyone was super friendly and wished all the candidates good luck once we arrived. The interview is exactly as prescribed in the technical readiness packet that United provided. The HR section was tell me about you, 5 or TMAAT questions and they expect you to answer in STAR format, then why United and a wrap up on it you need to disclose anything. The technical section we went over my flight plan then reviewed the callouts and stabilized approach criteria. A quick discussion on CRM and... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Aug 09, 2021 Overall experience was like everyone else said, study the technical packet and have a few stories that pertain to your flying... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Aug 06, 2021 Pro-tip, use the shuttle to get direct to the TK facility. Picks up at baggage claim and drops off. Very easy. Started out meeting others in cafeteria and then being brought back. Two separate sessions. One with an HR representative and a pilot consisting of TMAAT questions in which they prefer a STAR response but you don’t have to be hard on that format. Finished with why United and you ask them anything you want. Come prepared with some stories of your career thus far. Nothing crazy... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Aug 06, 2021 I arrived at 11 am for my 12:30 interview (the email told us to be there by 11:45 so they could collect logbooks). I was then directed to wait in the cafeteria and sat and talked with the other Aviate applicants. They came to get us close to 12:30 where we went to a class room and gave them our log books. We were then split into groups of about two and taken to different parts of the training center to do an HR interview and then a technical interview. My interviewers were very friendly...

  10. Aug 06, 2021 Overall an excellent experience. They want you part of the team and just want to get to know your previous experience and critical thinking in flight. Don't be afraid of previous failures be honest about them and make sure to include what you learned from the experience. When answering the HR questions take your time to answer them and make sure to fully answer the question rather than give a practiced story. For the technical portion don't stress too much about your flight plan being... Continue reading this interview experience
