Well, I was contacted by recruiting for my application to RTP. Yeah I know its horrible there blah blah. Same story as literally every regional Ive been researching for the last few months.

SkyWest is the only regional that meets my requirements. RTP bonus that pays for my training, training at AMS is literally 15 minutes from the house so no housing costs, based in ATL which is a 1 hour commute from PNS.

My question is about the interview process. I was offered the choice between flying out to SLC or doing an online interview. Im definitely leaning towards an online interview. Can anyone tell me what to expect on the online interview? How should I prepare? Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Wear pants.

I've heard the interviewers want to see if you are really taking the skype process seriously.

If you have the mins, you are on.

But really, reconsider.

I am not on the RTP but had a Skypeish interview nearly two weeks ago. Read the available airline pilot gouges and study BAK, engines, high speed flight, JEPPS runway markings etc. Know your stuff, be confident not arrogant and relax. I start on CRJ in Nov.

Thanks for the info Spike. I’m coming from helicopters with zero airplane time. Should I study jet stuff? Not sure what “BAK” is. I have a bunch of instrument time so Jepps won’t be a problem. Thanks again.

Probably the same people who came up with the KV.

Check Complete, if the domicile works why reconsider? Similar boat but exceed mins/ATP and blasted out a few apps to a hopeful short reserve commute as I'm in PHX.

I guess one has to see if the substantial pay difference at some of the other regionals is not enough to compensate for the convenience of being domiciled close to home? I can see that if there was a previous retirement income or the spouse has a good pay input it wouldn't be necessary.

But from our last pay package (I think) it was noted that after 3 years of starting that Republic would hand you about 100K more.

Gotcha, I was staying with the "don't commute" advice I had received previously by peers. Both boxes checked (mil ret, wife works) and planned on the massive pay cut (overseas contract guy now). I'll take another look.
