Right now I'm planning on the Residence Inn White Plains since I have enough Marriott Points to pay for it. With no hotel shuttle, it's starting to look like renting a car might be more cost effective, though I'm not fond of driving in unfamiliar cities when already stressing about an interview.
Hi Captain!
Ck. geo. BUF(snow) almost 350 miles from Purchase (still red&brown)!
HPN 10 mins away, LGA 35 mins. away, (no traffic) But... what happens between now and Dec.?

After hoping for a call for a couple of months, I have been invited to the December 2nd interview in Purchase, NY. Very excited to join the team should I be chosen!

I plan on flying into HPN on Monday Dec 1st, staying nearby, and using a hotel shuttle or Uber/Lyft to get to the interview Tuesday morning. Afterward, I will likely be heading to LGA or JFK via Uber/Lyft/Cab for a flight back home.

If there is anyone else planning a similar trip, PM me to set up a cab share / room share (holy expensive $$ for hotels).

I'm currently deployed and scheduled to return in the next 45-100 days (thanks US Army) I am ready to submit my Resume and PAQ but my 1st Class has expired with no way to renew it until my return... Anyone willing to offer any advice, conjecture or speculation?

I'd send it anyway to get your date of receipt started with the attached explanation above is fine and just update monthly. i'm guessing you have a current military flight physical equivalent? Thanks for your service and safe return!

Agreed. I'd do exactly that. At least then you've applied and can update.

So I've been through the thread, but it's been a little while. Most of the past interviewees said the interviews were straighforward, with questions about what are typically expected. Jepps, maybe some other technical, why the desire to work for Atlas, tell me about a time, why not _____ (insert other airline here)?

In their invite email, they indicated that they'd like interviewees to show up after having read the company annual report. There's some great information in the annual report, but does anyone know of an area of this 117 page document that one should focus on? It's a pretty in depth, interesting report on the company. Do they want you to know what percentage of fuel expense was mitigated through the increased efficiency of the 747-8F in 2013, or do they want you to speak intelligently about broader categories, such as being able to list ACMI and CMI customers of theirs, fleet size, etc. Thoughts?

Prior to my interviewe in May, I was also instructed to look over the annual report. There were no questions about it in my interview. YMMV.

One guy at my interview had an inch-thick stack of charts, graphs and reports explaining who knows what about the company. He probably knew more about the operation that day than I do after three years on property.

Personally, I would skim the annual report in accordance with your level of interest. I just really don't get into the business side of things, so I knew what ACMI was, what Gateway was, who the majors customers were and some of the major routes we flew for them. IMO, anything beyond that is extra credit.

I would also be familiar with some of our competitors, our fleet types, and some of our key customers.
