You won't apply anywhere with a personality test?

You sort of get the sense that personality may not be his strong suit.

Personality test will just numb your mind, and I didnít find a sample test out there that replicates it. Just try to be consistent. I really donít think itís a disqualifier like the Hogans are at UPS and United.

ATP is probably referring to the knowledge test. It was rough, but plenty who thought they blew it got the offer. On the sample tests, focus on aerodynamics and weather. If the LPJ site is new to you, sign up for the 6-month Compass prep package. Itís $60 I think, one time charge. I canít write the site name here, but itís in the interview gouges on the interview gouge site.

Canít really prep for the joystick/pedals agility test, but in the interview, each control will be introduced one at a time, with a practice session for each.

Good luck, itís a great experience. Looking forward to class.

Meh....the interview still isn't a big deal. I mean you spend a couple hours taking tests....but the actual face to face is very casual. I believe that if you have the experience they are looking for and they bring you in... you'd have to give them a reason to NOT hire you. My experience is about a year and a half old though.....

I suspect you are correct, that most of it is just getting the call to interview, and perhaps the computer testing is more for avoiding the use of the sims. I am old school in that regard though, the sim is where I have always shined in interviews.

K4 truly is a hidden gem. I was just chatting with a buddy of mine at Southwest who is having a hell of a day and its only his start, still had three more legs for the day. He asked how crappy my day is. I told him it was an easy going painful breakfast here at hotel, after I slept in. Got caught up on emails and bills so the wife doesnt have to worry about them all, chilled at Starbucks for a while, grabbed a quick nap and then the pain of trying to figure out where I was gonna have a nice dinner at. Oh, and the stress of booking some airline tickets for my family to meet me for a few day getaway when I come off rotation.

His response!!! F$-K You

Wishing everyone luck. Its a good place to be with some positive items on the horizon.

Do you know anyone at Kalitta Air? We have pilots from many of the carriers overseas that hire expats. Recommendations go a very long way here. Reach out to anyone you may know who is here.
