The phone interview. TMAT/STAR question on handling an emergency. Failed checkrides and lessons learned. Why Atlas? Why leave my current employer? What aircraft do I want? Is the schedule okay? Do I know anyone at Atlas? When did I start applying to Atlas? A couple other admin type questions.

Only the TMAT/STAR and checkride questions seemed out of place from a normal bar stool conversation. The rest just flowed from a back and forth about why I'd like to work for Atlas. It was polite and non-adversarial. I'd say just do standard interview prep. List some reasons why you want to work for Atlas. List some things that have happened to you in the aircraft and with coworkers. Have your schedule handy. I was offered a choice of interview dates after the admin questions.

Good gouge, fadec. To those reading, please pay close attention to question #6. It should come as absolutely no surprise at all to anyone following this forum that change is a way of life here at Atlas. I know that one can't get through a day of interview time without being asked that question several times. Yet, it always seems to come as a shock to new hires when their posted schedule comes apart. Here's the deal: If a firm structure in life is what you desire then please consider carefully whether this is a good fit. If a looser fit is OK and the occasional adventure sounds like fun then come on in, the water's fine!

Situation, Task, Action, Result.

They ask the TMAAT question, you answer with the STAR method.

Hello all, has any one from the March 9th interview group not get a class date yet? There were 8 of us I know of 2 that got the TBNT and 3 that got the March 30th class. Besides me, that leaves 2 more that are still in the pool. Word is the next class is on the 27th of April with 24 planned to be in that class.

I just wanted to confirm because the email was kind of unclear. Did you guys just email the NHPS form back to the person that sent it (along with an updated resume)?

Default Health insurance

Hello! I have been reading the thread for awhile but one question I have yet to see much about is:

What sort of quality of coverage and cost for health insurance can be expected?

Thanks!

it is ala carte, Medical, vision and then denial. My friend chose the PPO option and it runs him $500 per month for all three.
