How long is the hiring process? Scheduled to interview. How long after the interview do you get an offer? How long does the background check take? And Do you start fairly quickly after you pass the sim?

Are you applying under direct hire or the USA Jobs process? Direct hire might be a little quicker with everything, but normally 2-4 weeks after the interview you should hear something if you are selected. They'll start background and drug screen right away, and the sim/flight check will probably be scheduled another few weeks to a month out. Once you pass the check, it's a matter of days to get a firm offer and they will usually let you start as soon as you want you just have to wait until the first day of a pay period.

Direct hire. What does the sim/oral consist of? Is the interview just TMAT questions?

That being said, I do have a tool that you could possibly use if you are interested. Your checkride with be in a 737 either in OKC or Denver (United's sims), most likely OKC.

When I was preparing for it, there is a place that I found in Chicago that happens to have a simulator where they only charge around $125/hour. The sim itself doesnt move but the visuals are presented with screens that move. The cockpit is exactly like the one that you will use for your checkride and could be deemed invaluable if you dont have any time in a 737. Let me know if you are interested in hearing more and I will elaborate
I might be interested in the 737 simulator, could you provide details?
