I interviewed a little over a year ago and a friend interviewed about 3 months ago and from what he told me it was about the same as when I went. The gouge is accurate. they give you a paper with the sim profile before you go in that shows exactly what your gonna be doing and the associated plate. It's very simple and no surprises. If you can fly instruments you'll be fine. Tech is mostly on approach/enroute charts. They ask you if you wanna use jepps or NOS plates w.e your more familiar with. Some questions on airport/taxiway signs and markings. They asked me some really basic FAR stuff like when you need an alternate. They don't ask you any 121 stuff like some regionals because they actually understand that lots of people interviewing have never flown 121. When is your interview? Did they tell you what class they are interviewing for?

Sim is out of Green Bay. Take off, intercept a radial, timed constant rate climbing turn, constant airspeed descending turn, etc. Holding instructions. Identify the type of entry and inbound course and they should cancel the hold after said entry. Vectors for an ILS into GRB. Sim is a Redbird(?) Seminole. It moves...but only enough to mimic bumps enroute (annoying). The person in the sim with you is only there for checking purposes. He did answer simple questions about power settings during cruise/approach (hard to memorize beforehand). It's a single pilot operation.

Tech interview: Brush up on the ILS 34 to AVL. Full procedure. Systems is of an airplane of your choice. Choose something simple (I did not...almost backfired)

HR: Simple questions. Scott Swanson is a nice fellow.

Hopefully get offer. Pee in cup. Done. This was in Oct. 2011. Don't think it's changed much.

Oh yeah. 10 question written. Not to sound like a dick...but if you miss those questions, you probably need to re-evaluate things.

Yeah it's really easy though. They just wanna see a scan and see if you know how to shoot and ils. It's equipped with steam gauges. There was this former gojet guy in our interview bunch *****in cause he hasn't flown steam gauges in a couple years lol. He didn't get hired.....

I interviewed and was hired for the Feb 18th class. If your current 121 you will skip the sim eval.

I wonder how many current AWAC pilots would pass the interview!

When I was hired it was a 10-question easy test (if you knew anything), a sim eval which was exactly identical to the (highly recommended night-before sim prep), and an interview with an exec and the HR folks. I think I interviewed on a Thursday and was in class on Monday as I was currently out of a job.

Very easy. They're looking for people who will fit in as much as they're looking for skill. There's no way to prepare to fit into a corporate culture. You either do or you don't. The real weeding out takes place during training. That's when aviation deficiencies come to light.

I was hired a long time ago so the questions and sim check are likely totally different now.

Mine was a 20 min face to face followed by the 15 min "sim" eval. I was done before noon. They can determine if you will fit their unique culture pretty quickly.

Out of curiosity, what exactly did they tell you was "unique" about the culture at Air Wisconsin?
