Also, are there any circumstances where family can ride/travel on atlas flights?

You earn 1.17 days of vacation per month your first five years of employment and 1.75 days per month after that. Vacation is bid for the following calendar year. So unless you were hired in January your 6th year vacation is 2 weeks and some fraction of a third week.

The interview invite said not to bring a logbook. Just want to make sure this is a pilot job. I'm not going to have my kidneys taken or get roasted and served for dinner, am I?

Actually in all seriousness I could use a pointer or two on this. What sort of questions will I be asked about my flight experience? Should I prep some summaries or a type/role matrix or anything?

Unless it's changed, and the interview invite STILL says not to bring your log book, you WON'T need it.

I believe they may have removed one of the phases of the interview, but not sure, it was the resume review phase. Where the person just went top down, asking your experience. NOT in a kidney removal/roasting way. Just a standard "get to know you" way.

Just answer honestly, make sure to NOT say anything bad/negative about any previous employers or experience, and do your best to convey that you're a good fit Atlas but ALSO that Atlas is a good fit for YOU.

The no logbook actually made sense.

The phone interview pretty much served to confirm that you are who you say you are. The can ask you to provide that stuff later if they have doubts.

Once you have a few thousand hours, is it really worthwhile in an interview to do the math on how many cross-country night inverted time you have? Or would it be better to try to figure out if a person would gouge their eyes out on a 14 hr CVG-ICN flight with you?

There will be a point where they go over your resume and will ask some question here and there. It may seem that they're glossing over things but they are generally very sharp. The process here just doesn't put you through a lot of a@@ pain regarding proof. It's real simple...get caught in a lie and you're out. At the end of the whole process, they'll have a decent idea of who you are.

The honesty point above is the best tip. If you get the interview, they're telling you that the last hurdle is to prove you're not a raving lunatic.

Good luck.

True, but the previous multi-phase process was a bit of a$$ pain.

Seriously, what was the point of the writing exercise?

Hoops/dancing monkeys, but still....

The idea of the essay was to show HR if you can write a cognitive report or logbook entry that is easily understood. Your knowledge on the subject was inconsequential.
