Default JetBlue Gouge

On a previous thread someone kindly listed all the questions asked during a JetBlue interview. Looked at all the current Jetblue threads and can't find it. If anyone has it please re-post. Thank you!

Process -
Show up at least an hour before your scheduled interview time.
1st floor. Meet and greet. Hand over log books. **** test and finger print.
Takin to 2nd floor.
Lobby room - Another meet and greet and casual talk with JB employees.
Likely to have some chief pilots there.
Two interviewers show up to take you to interview room.
One is likely to be part of HR - One is a pilot.
They will tell you exactly how the interview process goes and what is expected.
They will tell you about themselves in summary. Then ask you to talk about
you. Skim over your resume' but don't repeat it verbatim. Talk about yourself a little.

Then the interview questions will start. About 30-40 minutes. No tech questions.
At end they ask you if you have a few questions for them. (see my notes)
Then they will take you back to Lobby room. Someone will then come get you for the exit interview. They will ask you how it went, when can you start, is there
anything in the background check (DUI, Speeding, Faa violation, Arrest) that they may find that might stop the phase 2 hiring process for you.
If so you will go sit with another HR person to explain it.

Then you will say goodbye, pickup your log books and hop on the JB shuttle back to JFK and wait.

Excellent gouge. I have gone through all my recaps from my previous two deployments, great stuff in there, to develop a shell, or guideline to "tell my story". I have resisted typing up exactly what happened or type up my answer because I don't want to lose the "spontaneity" in my answer.

Having an idea of what to say for TMAAT seems like a good idea, plus I may video tape myself to see if there's anything in my responses that looks off.

That and getting some interview prep (I have an idea who I want to use based on who offers an interview) shall hopefully help.

Studying the "Ace the pilot technical interview", reading through all the interview gouge and testing gouge, reading "Blue Streak" and "Flying High" should be prep enough.

Oy!, there's not enough hours in the day! Especially with the Champions League and Europa Cup matches on!!

I HIGHLY recommend Emerald Coast Consulting. Not only did it really help me out, one of the people interviewing me spotted it and pointed out HE used them when he got hired as well. Plus, if you don't make it to Phase II, you get your money back.

Okay, I hope you get hired now. People look at me strangely when they ask if I like the NFL, and I say it's the wrong kind of football. Or they say "Who's you're favorite football team?" and I respond with either Arsenal, Barcelona or Sporting KC.

I can think of other reasons people look at you weird. I'll add this to my list though.

Anybody have any good thought on how to tackle "TMAAT when a checklist didn't apply?"

I'm sure I have something but just can't wrap my head around it.

I was planning on going with someone else, on the recommendation of my buddy at JB, and ECC if I got an interview at Delta, SWA or FedEx, all which aren't hiring, but I'll look into it.

Believe me, I hope I get hired at JetBlue too! I'm starving for someone to talk the beautiful game with. We had three! foreign exchange pilots in our squadron, an Italian, a Scot and a Brit, NONE were interested in Calcio or Football.

That being said, you may go back on your wish: I'm a huge Chelsea supporter, I watch all of Atletico Madrid's matches on BeIn and support the Sounders in MSL. All pretty much the opposite of who you support, lol.

I would use ECC now. Don't wait for a call up. You'll be scrambling at that point. He even talks about this in the seminar. Yeah, he'll be able to help you, but you're much better off doing it in advance. I did it 18 months prior to my ADSC being up. I had a few regional airline interviews as a civilian and a high vis type military interview and felt like I was pretty good at it. When put on the hot spot at the seminar, I learned that I have some work to do, and it's not what I would want to accomplish in a week or two, while also studying for any technical interviews that might happen, and researching the company.

It is well worth the money and you can attend any seminar you want in the future for free plus get phone consultation if you need it. I do find a lot of military guys are reluctant to spend money preparing. I'm going to do everything possible to be overly prepared. Think of it this way, the civilian bro’s out there trying to get the job have often spent 10’s of thousands of dollars to get to this point (some north of 100k! looking at some of the debt threads on the forum). We only have to spend a few hundred.

Chelsea? The fake North London club? There is only one club that rules North London! It's Arsenal FC. UP y'er Arse!
