The interview was pretty standard for a 135 job. Some tricky IFR questions but nothing I couldn't wrap my head around. About an hour for the interview and then we spent an hour in a redbird sim doing IFR work. They are holding classes every month so hiring is picking up again. There is also a new 1yr, $7,500 training contract. Seems most 135 airlines are going that way.

Are they just drawing from a stack of piled up resumes? I haven't seen them actually list an SIC position on their website in ages, maybe upward of a year. And I hear rumors that they just have mountains of apps like Boutique does (or...did, seeing as they don't seem to be doing so hot).

How new? Is your class the first to have that?

I am not sure when it started, but it was news to me when I interviewed.

I'm pretty sure they are still working through the "stack" of applications. I am not sure when the application window will be open again but you can always email your documents directly to HR and they will likely add them to the pile.

You mean going AWAY from it. Training contracts are bull****. Itís a federal mandate that you are trained to the companies Opspecs and curriculum or you canít fly. Price of doing business gents, donít let the carrot sway you. Say no to the contract and move along to another place that doesnít have it.

For what it's worth they're largely unenforceable. The only risk is them bad mouthing you when called for a work history, but many won't do that over fear of being sued.

It hardly matters for a low hour F/O. Someone that needs to build 1000+ hours will be there for over a year anyway.

On a side note, why is this thread in Part 91 and Low Time and not 135?

Default Interview-Mokulele

Hey guys. (Not sure which section to post this in). I've got an upcoming interview with Mokulele and didn't know if someone had any tips going into the interview.
Thank you!
