Here is one of their recruitment videos, with facial hair:

Only one guy in the video didn't have facial hair. lol.

They have an Instagram page too. They generally post a pic of every new pilot class if you want to see more facial hair. :D

Just checked out their Instagram.... looks like they are hiring a lot of older guys?

The main thing we care about is that the facial hair does not affect safety.
We want our pilots to look professional of course and we know they can with facial hair no doubt! :)

Both! We're capturing pilots who's first airline job is with us and pilots who have been forced to retire from the big guys due to age but just don't want to!

That is a good plan!

No reason to be confused. Typically, there aren't any technical questions.
We used to have a list of technical questions, but we typically no longer use them.

All those interview experiences are accurate to AMF, but most aren't used anymore.
For example, we used to (last year) do that one-way video interview as part of the overall interview. The candidate would be sent a link and they would use their camera to audibly and visually answer about seven questions. This was effective but time-consuming, so after about six months we got rid of it.
We also had a large list of technical questions (about two years ago) and our interview took about 45 minutes. Our online application was intense as well and took about as long. We found that some folks wouldn't even complete the online application.
Anyway, that was long but we are constantly evolving and figuring out what works best for us while capturing candidates and getting the info we need. :)

DFW Base
 
How likely is that I can get DFW base out of training with or close to 135 mins (1200TT, etc.)?

Pretty likely, if the position is open on our site, it's open to you.
If you are aiming for a Captain position, you'll select location and aircraft before you even come to training.
