They start off with having you lay out all of your paperwork on a table while one of the check pilots looks it over. While thats going on Stacy, or one of the other recruiters does a presentation about the company. That lasts about 30 or 45 mins.



After that they give you a 25 question test... most of the questions were off of the old ATP written.



Then they'll bring you upstairs for a one on one. The check pilot will have you brief a Jeppesen approach. If its the same one that I got, make sure to note the change in minimums if tall ships are in the area.



Then they'll have you read a METAR and TAF. Just know what all of the remarks mean... that'll make them warm and fuzzy. Other than that it was all HR related questions. "Tell us about a time when you had to deal with a bad coworker, tell us about an emergency situation you were in... etc."



Overall, pretty simple. They were really friendly, made you feel comfortable.



Good luck! I'm sure you'll get the offer. Like the others said, they're hurting pretty bad at the moment.

Thanks to sharing your experience. Did they sent you the pria prior to interview or did you fill it up there? I got my interview confirmation but no pria

Interviewed in September. As the previous poster said, study up on ATP-written type questions. Sheppard Air's Airline Interview Test Prep was a very helpful resource. Also use Aviationinterviews.com - pay the 20 dollars.

I was asked about past stressful in-flight situations, decoding weather products, briefing a chart (that's all I can recall). Know basic part 91 rules about IFR procedures.

Don't respond with the bare minimum to the tech questions. E.g., don't just assume they want you to brief an ILS vector-to-final, even though that's what they probably want. Ask if they want you to brief it as a vector-to-final or a full procedure from IAFs XYZ, ABC, etc. When they want a V-speed limit, explain a bit about what it means. Those types of questions/answers show them that you take the process seriously and bring more knowledge to the table than they really need to see. I was able to decode a METAR including every remark and I am pretty sure that the rest of the tech interview was lighter because of it.

Above all, don't do what people are saying and take the job for granted. They can tell and even though it is a pilot's market, HR folk appreciate someone who takes their process seriously. Yes, people do get turned away. It happened to at least one person in my interview group. However, if you arrive prepared, relax, and be yourself, the job is certainly yours for the taking.

I interviewed with them mid-September. Went somewhere else though. Shoot me a PM and I'll my notes from the interview. It was cake, you pretty much got the job and less you do something to mess it up.

It's gonna be a long career of your concerned about a sim ride. If there isn't one in the interview, don't worry. You will do one at least once a year the rest of your career!!!

I'm sure this has been asked a billion times, but what are the chances being based in PIT out of training?

I'm currently 2 years in with another 121 carrier, no chance of upgrade for another 8-10 years, 3 more years of reserve at least, no weekends or holidays off, and making only 30 grand a year (under republics first year pay).
I realize upgrade time is still fairly high there but I'm more concerned with living in PIT since that's where I grew up and family resides, and I could possibly have a life-I'm sure reserve isn't quite as long at Republic. Do I have a good shot at it? Also how are things currently looking over there?

I think Horizon is the only regional left that does a sim check.

I left republic recently and PIT was very junior, shouldn't have any issue at all holding a line quickly there!

Good luck. And once you hire on somewhere enjoy the ride. RAH has been wonderful for me. You'll discover here on these regional forums there are lots of bitter posters who are full of $hit.
