I just interviewed inDenver and was offered the job. They expect you to read every gouge. Draw a turbo fan engine and be able to talk about the way a turbofan works. Draw an electrical system and talk about it. Definitely find a desk top sim at a local school and fly a few approaches. You'll be vectored around and set up for a normal ILS to a missed. Talk a lot through the approach. Ask for wx, approach flaps, gear down etc. Know the hold entry and that will be it.. CRM is exactly as the gouges say. Declare an emergency and keep communication going. 7 min comes quickly. HR part is all about you. Tell them why you want to be there and relax. Technical is all about charts and your drawings. Let them talk and tell you all about systems. A lot of high altitude stuff, Mach tuck, Buffett etc. straight out of the book.
Good luck

On my interview my interviewer offered this feedback: "thank you for being so prepared and looking so professional."

Skywest is looking for someone who is going to come prepared to class and their job, represent them well, and has a good personality.

They are big on your physical impression. Wear a suit. I have no idea why this needs to be said...
Get a fresh haircut. Be neat shaven. Look as good as you ever have.

For the technical, which seemed to compromise most of my interview, don't sweat it. They don't care if you know everything. What they ARE looking for is preparedness. Study your systems, jepps, and ATP questions. If you have prepared it will be obvious to them and will go a long way in making a good impression.

The HR part is the biggest aspect. They are big on leadership, professionalism, and attitude. Give stories that demonstrate these things. They are hiring future captains not just FOs and they want to know you can think like a captain and aren't afraid to step up to the plate. Attitude is key. They want to see that you can fit the Skywest culture, which if you judge based on what you read here isn't super attractive . Believe it or not, most skywest pilots pride themselves on being a group that has a better collective attitude than our counterparts in the regional industry. My experience has been that regardless of this places short comings, people hold themselves to their own personal standard of having a positive attitude not just at work but at home as well. That's not a knock on anyone else, and it doesn't mean we don't ***** and complain plenty, but at the end of the day most of us are happy to be here and enthusiastic about our lives and our job.

Do these things and you're a shoe in! Good luck!
