I never cease to be amazed at how strange some pilots are. 100 bucks for a medical. 300 bucks for interview prep. 60 bucks for shoes. Too much?

Damn. People spend more than that on just the examiner fee for a private pilot check ride. Quit being a cheap ass!
Only thing I bought for my interview was a belt and I returned it the next day (commuter pilots were brought up cheap).

****.

U got off cheap. I bought an entire new uniform. (No ****. They wanted to see you in a current uniform-and word on the street was that it should be new.)

I didnít skimp on interview prep as well. I know Iím a sparkling conversationalist, but these interviews ainít exactly small talk. So itís best to work at being ready for a whole bunch of odd questions-preparing for those was a task.

Success is where preparation meets opportunity. No place is that more true than a legacy airline interview.

I just wore my regular uniform. Why did you think it had to be new? I didn't know anyone who paid for prep for Airways, and all told I knew a dozen guys hired there personally from my regional.

I wasnít taking chances.

I rode the van back to the airport with a guy who didnít do prep. He didnít make it.

You only get a couple of these chances (at best.) I know a LOT of great folks who are well qualified and canít get a sniff from any legacy.

Luck has something to do with it. My app was in for 4 years and I kept getting crickets, and then one day I got a call out of the blue. I sure wasnít going to waste it.
