So, as soon as I finished the test I sent an email to the HR rep who emailed me all the info. She said that I passed the test (woohoo) and that it was normal that I couldn't log back in. Once it logs you out, that's it. I have no idea what I got which is a total bummer but I think that's because I let time expire. I finished all the questions with about 15 minutes to spare and thought "hey! There's no way I'm gonna leave any extra time on the table". So I went back and checked all my answers I was unsure of and let time run out. Maybe had I clicked submit before time expired I could have seen my score? I don't know.
But for any future test takers, there was nothing on the test that the previous gouges on this thread haven't mentioned. My test had more time, distance, speed calculations than I was expecting but that's pretty easy. Definitely study the "everything explained..." book and have it handy if at all possible. I had no NAT questions, quite a few Zurich TAFs, more questions on the characteristics of the Tropopause than I thought possible to ask, ILS 31L JFK questions (there were a number of these but I forget specifics. One was about the MSA and tower telling you to go around and maintain RW HDG, altitude at pilot's discretion? All I'm thinking is how in the hell would JFK tower ever tell you to head straight for LaGarbage and say whatever ALT you wanna fly is ok with them? But I digress). "Ace the technical pilot Interview" was also a great investment. $16 on kindle and really made those long legs fly by, so to speak. It really helped get a firmer grasp on balanced field stuff before going in. Screen height, wet V1, etc.
Here's hoping for the phone interview. Best of luck to all.

Thanks for 'paying it forward' Lawn Boy! This is helpful information for anyone considering Atlas as a career option. Best of luck with your interview...I'm guessing that will be sometime soon

Trading of AAWW halted, "news pending"... Any guesses on what this is?

Just finished taking the test! The gouge was spot on, I would say 70% of the questions are straight from the ATP book and the other 30% are NATs, JFK 31L approach questions, ICAO Metars and TAF, VMCG, Weather Symbols just like previously mentioned. The best tool I used was Sheppard Air Airline interview test prep its $39 ($19 discount for former ATP subscribers). Good luck to the rest of the guys on the interview.

Hey all. I took the test Monday, and have been waiting for a call since then. I've been all over this thread, some great info here. I'll post back if I hear anything from HR. I'm hoping for some good news and to be in Miami 10/7-9.

I'm in the same boat. I took the test last week and anxiously waiting for news. Glad to hear I'm not the only one sitting on the bench! I'll post if I hear more as well.

Me three!

I was told my a friend there that he didn't think they would call until next week, they apparently have a history of giving short notice to both interviews and class dates, most people only get a little more than 2 weeks notice for class, and others doesn't even get that.

If you can swing it, call HR the Friday before a class starts. Now and again, someone drops out. If you can be in MIA on Sunday for two months of training, they might give you the slot. Worked for a guy in my class.
