Interview is pretty similar to what's said online. Company presentation as a group, 2 on 1 interviews (2 interviewers, 1 interviewee). Don't sweat it. Cape Air cares about customer service so think of how you might answer questions like how to deal with non-rule following coworkers... A few what would you do ifs, and then maybe 2 technical questions like what's a turbocharger or what do you do if the engine fails. Nothing hard at all. Be confident and be yourself.

Classes are very frequent through January, but I am not totally sure of dates.
PM me if any of you reading are seriously considering it.

Default FO Pay

$9.43 per duty hour for FO pay. Pretty brutal but they justify it by saying FOs are (usually) not required crew members. You get bumped off a flight if its fully sold out which hurts the flight time. And during the busy season in whichever region you are in, it can get old fast. But, you can ask around in the hub of other captains might allow you to tag along in the right seat on a round trip you weren't originally scheduled to make up for it.

As far as SJU or MAZ as an FO, chances are better for SJU. Depends on what they need at the time of each bid...

Current first year Captain pay is 15.70/hr. That comes with a 40 hour minimum guarantee which is $32,656 as a minimum. The lines with more overtime top out around $43,000 first year. That excludes transition pay (Up to $250 - $3,000 per move based on distance available 2 times per year) and incentive pay for pilots working other than their normal days.

The company is short pilots so if you're willing to work extra, you can pick up as much as an extra $300 per day in the busy Summer and Winter seasons. It all adds up quickly.

Anyone have information about the ATR position in Guam?

Average week of flying?
Are they really putting guys with fresh ATPs in the left seat of the ATR?

I have:

700 Turbine
900 Multi
200 Twin Cessna

Currently flying the Canyon in Twotters, would like to skip first year regional pay.

Yes, the training is all in Hyannis and expect to be there for a while. It was about 2-3 months when I was there. It might have gotten quicker since they got the Sim. I wouldn't expect to get Billings for the first couple of bids.

Is it possible to stay based in the Caribbean year round? Or would one have to go fly up north in the summer every year?
