    Everything is done quickly, and it starts with a very short tour, followed by a mini presentation on tips and tricks that could help. From there, it goes straight to the interview. They’ll take you in for an HR interview (2 people interview you), then give you a 5-minute break before the technical portion, each of which is about 30-45 minutes. The technical portion was very easy; just come in with the prepared plan and show all your work for calculations, and back up everything for...

    First let me start by saying while I interviewed for AVIATE, since I'm coming from one of their regional partners already with an ATP, my interview more closely resembles the United FO interview. Starts with a tour of the center and a quick briefing with whoever else is there to interview at the same time slot as you. Then one by one, a Captain or FO comes and brings you into a room along with an HR recruiter. They then get into the TMAAT questions. If I remember correctly, there were five...

    Right when you walk into the building they do a great job at calming down your interview anxiety. You all wait in the cafeteria and meet the other people that are interviewing. This will be a mix of people who are interviewing for a FO position and also for the AVIATE interview. A pilot will meet you in the cafeteria and take you on a tour of the facility which approximately lasts 45 or so minutes (this is why they tell you to arrive an hour before your scheduled interview time). Once done...

    A rather short day, everything is done quickly and a very short tour (unfortunately don’t get to see training facility) then it’s interview time. They’ll take you in for a HR interview (2 people interview you) and then they’ll give you a 10min break before the technical portion, each is about 30-45min. The panel I had was very nice and made for a calm relaxed environment, other candidates had an opposite experience so ymmv, some of the pilots giving interviews...

    There were several of the "tell me about a time when" questions that were fairly easy to answer, but come prepared with several stories you can pull from so you don't sit for an awkward amount of time thinking of stories. I was only asked about 4 of these questions, then had about a 10 minute break before being pulled back in for the technical readiness review. I came with a VFR flight plan for about 450 miles. They asked me to walk through why I chose my route, weather I would...

    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...

    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. Others who were being interviewed showed up and we all talked for a while until a Captain came and collected some forms we filled out. After that he took us on a short tour and eased our nerves with some jokes. Shortly after he briefed us about how the interviews would go and we were all quickly pulled out of the room one...

    We got taken to the cafeteria were I met a lot of very interesting pilots of all different backgrounds and experiences. We got a very short tour, and then were directed to a back waiting room where the interview took place. I answered the tell me about yourself, 5 tell me about a time questions all of which were on the study guide, then we took a break. I did the flight knowledge portion, memory items then the why United? It is just as the packet you get when you apply explains it. No...

    Gouges of the interviews were spot on and they were helpful. Most of them were very detailed and provide questions that I got in the interview.
