Well, we hired a lot of furloughed ASA guys. And it's the holiday rush, so everyone is out flying. I would give them a ring and ask what's your status.

Default Interview

Question about the interview process.

What should I be studying to prep for my interview date? My buddy on property says its more or less to see how your personality is to make sure you are pleseant to be around for 16 days+. Also, do you get a CJO on sight and if so, do you do the PRIA and drug test on the same day or do you typically do all the reqs upon reaching INDOC?Any info would be greatly appreciated.

No need to post this question twice.

Sorry if I posted on another forum, but I am just trying to be as prepared as possible. You or whomever chooses to share their wisdom with me would be greatly appreciative of knowledge and time.

I'd say the ASA pilot deal has something to do with it, but I'm sure you will get a call if they like your resume

The interview has changed dramatically over the past couple years. If youíre prior mil, showing up in you flight suit will get you bonus points. Seriously, spoke with two guys who were given CJOs, both wore their flight suits. One of these guys then went onto wearing his nomex gloves to IOE, he was signed off immediately. Does it really matter when you **** in a cup? Once youíre on the line, they wonít be giving you a heads up.

No flight suit here, it doesnt matter when I **** in a cup. Was questioning more about all the paperwork. If it was done there or if I get the job, in INDOC. Maybe could have worded it better.

I heard a rumor that calls for interviews have resumed.

Regarding training, someone mentioned donít memorize this and that. While I normally follow said logic (almost to double digits in initial classes in my career), I will say that the training can be intense. However, they definitely have a script and an instructor actually DID tell me to memorize something that I never would memorize in the Line. It was said to me to motivate me where motivation wouldnít have been proper. I knew that everything was going to be fine, but I was being kind of a diva in the sim and he was trying to redirect me. Things can get a bit stressful because they have to get the sims in and somehow get you through an OKE, PV, MV, and LOE in about 3 weeks. Itís doable, but you have to stay on your toes, stay on topic until the topic changes, and generally have a good foundation for how you approach high volume learning. I had to take note of things I wanted to cover more later.
