Sigwx charts. Metar & TAF guide / true vs. magnetic / visibility in SM or meters / winds in MPS ... whatever. Know how to read a Jepp plate and plan a descent on an arrival. Read up a little on jetstreams because I think there were some Qs in there not in the ATP bank. NAT contingency procedures for emergency descent or deviating around weather. SLOP. One question had a Chinese RVSM distraction. Not sure if you need to know the ins and outs of that, just maybe the top and bottom in meters. It's 90% the same as it's been for the past year or two at least. It's about 50% ATP, 10% NAT, 20% weather, 10% FAR/AIM, and 10% off the wall. Somebody posted a list of about 30 bullet points several years ago. Just google this forum for "test" or "online test" or "written test".

Could any Atlas guys tell me how quickly a 747 new hire could expect to have MIA as a base?

May outbase request is released. I wonder how much open time would happen if they all went unfilled? Only 7/16 for April. 16 slots again for May.

The most junior 747 MIA FO was hired in April of 2013 ...
So about two years for him.
YMMV

Surely 16 people want to spend their entire month working for 1 to 1 pay....

MIA is pretty senior...

I'll rank the seniority of the bases again just for fun... I tiered them this time to give people an idea of how big the jumps are. I've been around 3.5 years and would be the last guy at PAE. I still can't hold IAH.

Tier 1
1. IAH
2. PAE

Tier 2
3. MIA
4. LAX
5. JFK

Tier 3
6. CVG
7. HSV

Tier 4
8. ANC

If you get a 747 instead of a 767, plan on ANC for an extended stay. They'll have to keep you up there so they don't have to show a lower 48 vacancy and release 767 FOs waiting for a non-ANC base.

Howdy. Just wanna to chime in that they was straight shooting in the interview. Nothing crazy. Same as it says here. Real nice folks too. Tech panel and HR panel and done in not much more than half a day. If you can read weather and jepps and don't mind the work then it's easy going. The only thing I'm wondering about is that paper where we checked off a porn category. I picked female and Asian because they didn't have lesbian on there. What'd y'all pick?

FYI - Uhhh, that's PROM ... not porn.

They want to know who your prom date was.

Oh, and congrats on a successful interview. Sounds like you'll probably be swimming soon.
