12 September Interview: 8 Interviewed 4 Hired

Professional act from start to finish. Arnie, Tony, and Adrienne are all awesome and will help you any way they can. If you are uneasy about the Cog test, make sure you sit with Tony for a few minutes and pick his brain before you go in and hit 'Next'.

Interviewers took their job seriously but were ready to laugh if you make an attempt at humor. I think interview prep was priceless. I went through emeraldcoastinterviewconsulting.com and it helped me a lot. Even if you can't fly in, the phone interview and web based prep is still great.

I was told to expect a late October early November class date by one of the interviewers for what that is worth.

Gouge is still good. Arnie said it won't change for at least another month, maybe more.

We all had different versions of the test. Some said 50% of questions from the gouge were on there. Personally I got lucky and would say 80% I had seen. Now, they weren't word for word, but if you understood the concept behind the gouge question you'll have no problem with real question.

Questions I hadn't seen:

1. When are you considered established on the Final approach segment?

A. On GS and LOC at any altitude B. On Loc at MM C. At GS intercept altitude on LOC and GS

2. Cleared to Hold @ 17,000 what speed do you fly?

A. L/D Max Clean B. L/D Max configured C. 265KTS

3. Just Passed XYZ VOR. You are Heading 180 on the 175 radial. You want to intercept the 138 Course. What heading do you fly?

A. 080 B. 105 and a couple other heading that I don't remember, but they didn't seem to make sense.

Arnie says they are still hiring and have no quota so they would happily hire 8 of 8 each day if everyone passes the 3 Tests and the Interview.

Good luck to all.

As long as you don't get an email tomorrow saying that there are some unresolved issues from your psych eval, then you should be in the clear. If you do get the email, expect to wait about 3 weeks to find out your Delta fate.

Congrats and good luck.

I know DAL has an end of October class, did AWK say they plan on having classes in November?! If so maybe, if C-17D and I can get out of the psych ward, I still have a chance at getting on this year. Sucks to sit and wait. Especially after getting through the process with thumbs up. I'm wondering if Dr. V has issues with military guys. Hmmmmm...

11 Sept interview: 6 applicants. 2 military, 2 commuters, 1 Continental new hire, 1 Spirit.

Results: 2 military and Spirit hired. Continental failed test, come back in 6 months. 2 commuters, thanks for playing.

For the COG screen, go to http://www.lumosity.com/ for the free 30 day trial. There are 30 sessions of games that help with memory, cognative control, attention, and processing speed.

Classes in October and November. Back and forth if they will do a December class. There will be a Jan 7 class. They asked the 3 hires if we would be available for October.

Good luck.

I've heard people having issues with that lately. Arnie warned us about that, but said most people make it through the review board. So good luck, you should be fine.

I think the real test should be if you walk out of the 567 question bubble sheet test without inserting one of the #2 pencils in your eye, you must be good to go.

Thanks for the congrats. I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully I don't get that email!

I am just curious, how do u guys know the reason(s) why other interviewees didn't get hired? I am just wondering because I thought usually companies don't tell you why..

Arnie is a stand up guy and will look you straight in the eye and tell you why didn't get hired. I really admire and respect that, and I think makes them the best company to work for. If you didn't get the conditional hire, you either didn't get by the interview or you failed the test, or both. If you only failed one of the tests, you can try again in 6 months. We saw one of the guys after the interview, and he told us what Arnie told them.

AWK didn't, but the HR rep in my interview did. He was asking about availability and said as of now they are planning a November class. FWIW.
