Last I heard was that we are not hiring until this fall sometime. They might be starting to interview though. The process is pretty standard. 15 minute sim check that includes takeoff, fly around the pattern the a raw data ILS. There is also about a 20 minute interview with a line pilot and an HR rep.
Going to the jobfair will probably be your best chans to land a interview at AirTran unless you know some people on the inside to write you some recommendations. We are not interviewing right now but this is your chans to show yourself looking sharp. Your totaltime is just right and if you have 1000+ PIC turbin your name should be in the hat when we start calling people for interview. Our hiring people really like people that show that they really want to work here. I've been hear 1 1/2 years, is a DC-9 captain and loving it. Good luck!
