@CRJDriver

Compared to the whining I usually see on here this post is on par.

We ranged from 950 and 120 to 2000 and 90. I had to be proactive to get my interview. Looking at a 5/23 class date. Cool group of folks. The people I interviewed with were a great group of guys and I look forward to figuring out the ERJ with them.

I am curious as to what happened? stressful? easy?

To the guy with the failures. Never count yourself out. If you sell yourself and show that you have learned from your experiences then you still have a shot. I know people with multiple dui's flying for majors because they did not give up when people told them to not even bother applying.

Congrats good luck with the studying. The erj isnt an especially hard airplane to figure out and the training department is thorough. Have fun.

Amen to that...there was another guy in my class with multiple failures like me. Just tell them why, and accept it as your cross to bear.

Awesome group of guys though.

Intro. Written (Basic commercial IFR limited 121 stuff). Tabular speed test. That test was what separated the wheat from the chaff. Interview very laid back. And the sim test was lot of fun. They want you to succeed, but made sure they were getting a good candidate at the same time.

That being said, I've done alot of different jobs and had alot of interviews in my day. My nervousness was primarily self induced. With the number of busts on my record I was really worried that this would be my only shot. I don't think my heart
rate went below 105 BPM for the past 2 days. If they had a medical exam I totally would have FUBAR'ed that one.
