The interview is easy. Cindy collects paperwork. Then, Kathy and Mike ask you why TSA, what got you into aviation, tell me about yourself, and MIke asks you a descent planning question from FL360 to FL300 and what distance and how long will it take, fuel burn question in a hold for 45 minutes at 1200 lbs/hr, brief a departure procedure, and an approach plate. They tear through your airlineapps form and resume pretty heavily. After that..... Mike (the chief pilot of recruiting) takes you to Subway. We started at 8am, and was at KSTL to go home by 11:30am.

EDIT: Oh, and my interview was a Wednesday, and I had a conditional offer for groundschool by Monday at 10am.

Mike isn't the ACTUAL CP. The CP for IAD and CP for STL are not named Mike. According to someone on these boards who worked for TSA for 5+ years told me in a PM exchange that they let Mike call himself a CP, but he's really the CP of Recruiting...

:D True. That guy is Randy. He's the System Chief Pilot aka "the Hammer" (a nickname given to him by Keith, the Director of Operations). Don't let the nickname fool you, he's a nice guy.

I'm still confused about this. Why would they take you to subway if they weren't gonna buy your lunch? I mean a free lunch is priority número uno but if they aren't buying id prefer sitting at Hardee's alone.

Because at that age you're not looking for a career job, you're looking to score some jet time.
