    The written test was really easy and every question was on this website. I got everything correct. Just read one time before my interview and that was perfect. Sim test was also very basic and nothing was hard. The examiner did every difficult thing and just gave me simple instruction. I did for 40mins sim test and it was very relaxing. I told him what airplane I fly and it was same airplane. They consider your airplane. Interview was for 50mins and very friendly. We just talked about my...

    Everything described on this website about the overall experience from the phone screening to the sim at the end of the day is spot on what you can expect. Headquarters are very nice and the team is very kind/informative. However, yesterday at my group interview, they completely changed the technical written exam  It is a whole new exam. The questions were very random and ranged from things like pitot static blockages, ACARS, CPDLS, derived alternate minimums. Our entire group of...

    Phone call screening interview was exactly as described by other reports. Took about 50 minutes, mostly friendly conversation. Almost the first 20 minutes were entirely taken up with a description of the benefits of working for the company which was very impressive. She did a great job of selling me on wanting to work for them. Then HR questions, (view the study guide of this website).  Technical questions were very brief and easy, so much so that I only remember two: what is RVSM...

    Had the interview with Jacqui, pretty laid back. Will start by mentioning all benefits and opportunity you have with the company, then will proceed to ask you a couple of hr questions. (Why XO, what qualities you look in a company, how would you handle a situation with a manager) then will ask you to talk about your self and resume. 5 quick technical questions (what is RVSM, distance from a TS, speed below B, difference in DA and MDA) after that will be a small talk and ask you for your...

    This platform offers a wide range of valuable insights covering various crucial subjects! It commences with a general introduction, proceeds to HR inquiries, transitions to technical matters such as maximum hold speed, maximum airspeed, and chart symbology, and concludes with comprehensive information on rotating schedules and work shifts. Additionally, during the interview, I was inquired about my preferred aircraft and location. Despite the majority of the time being occupied by the...

    I found the interview process almost exactly as previous candidates. No surprises. There are no tricks or gotchas. The staff responsible for interviews and sim check are professionals that don't require tricks or impossible situations to assess your abilities. Just be yourself and be honest. Really enjoyed the process and met some very interesting people with varied...

    It was a great experience. Had roughly 30 people in my interview group and we all started the day around 7am. The presentation was next all about the company and how they are growing. It lasted a little more than an hour. After, we all took a written technical exam which was about 20 questions and you had 30 mins to complete. Nothing too scary on the exam but review the study guide portion to help you (don’t go in blind). After, they gave you the interview time which started right away...

    I had an interview with Vista America after applying online and receiving an invitation for an initial 30-minute virtual interview. It covered the basics: introducing myself, explaining why I was interested in Vista, and discussing a few Tell Me About A Time (TMAAT) scenarios, followed by five technical questions. The atmosphere was very friendly and professional. A few weeks later, I received an invitation to an in-person interview. They flew me to Columbus, OH, and provided accommodation...

The information on this website is all you need to get prepared. Good luck to any of you who are going for an...

    Interview was just like others previously mentioned. It was very organized. Study from the study guide and you will be successful. Make sure you are socializing with the people in your interview group. It is also a very long day. Bus was at 6:30 AM and sims went until midnight. They were very supportive throughout the process and make it very...

    I have used Aviation Interviews several time for my career progression. Every interview that I had I felt fully prepared. I never received a question that I did not know about already.
