Just am curious,



Due to the apparent delays in training, is this leading to the company holding off on calling qualified candidates for interviews?


I applied about a week ago but haven't heard anything. Just curious if anyone else is having the same experience.



Thanks!

I applied via Airline Apps and it took 5 days or more for a call. I finally called recruiting and they said sometimes they don't get "notified immediately" about new apps from AirlineApps. I resubmitted directly and got call next day.... YMMV

It took under a week for them to call me. Not sure the exact number of days. I applied in last half of September.

Wasn't really sure where to post this question. I have an interview coming up and I've been on Aviation Interviews and I just purchased Sheppard Air. How accurate is Aviation Interviews with regards to the written test questions they give you in the interview? There are over 800 questions in Sheppard Air to study. Are there any particular subject areas I should place emphasis on and are the questions in the "Written Test" section of Aviation Interviews gouge accurate? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Use Sheppard air and only Sheppard air for the written test questions. Some of those question examples on AI have been there for more then 10 years, they never clean that site out.

Use AI to get a feel of how the interview will go and what kind of oral questions you will be asked. But don't use it for the written portion as you may get some bad information.

On a side note, once you get the job make sure to cancel your subscription to AI. Otherwise they will just keep on billing you monthly.

“How To Land A Top Paying Airline Job: The Proven System for Beating the Odds and Landing Pilot Jobs at the World’s Best Airlines”. Has a nice clean section of must knows in the back section of the book, but sound advice throughout with examples of some horror stories.

I used the same two resources, AI questions once through and went through SA aerodynamics and weather questions 2x each. I felt well prepared throughout.

Thanks for the insight. Are the majority of the written questions from the weather and aerodynamics chapters?

No. It's random.

I can tell you that if you follow Sheppard Air's study strategy, you will do very well. I can also tell you that many of the questions in that question bank will also be in the ATP question bank when you get there, so you will have a leg up on the ~1300 questions for the ATP once you get there.

Lastly, don't stress about the written test. If the HR person likes you, and the pilot likes you, they won't even look at the written score. Ostensibly, you need a 70% to "pass" (and you'll never know what you got, BTW) but from what I was told they will use that score as a tiebreaker for a disagreement between the two interviewers on whether or not to take a candidate.

Good luck!

Yeah, I sucked at the test, probably got like a 60. And still got the CJO.
Due to "reasons", I didn't study at all.

That’s interesting, they told me what I got right when I finished it?
