I've heard that they now require a green card and a pulse. Just make sure you have both and you'll be in a CRJ in no time.

I'm just curious, FSI. Where did you get hired right out of the chute and please state how your "airline" is superior to 9E.

come on people, the guy is just looking for interview advice
Skychicken, Study the written stuff, if you have time in a frasca, you will do fine on your sim, and for the tech interview, just know your current plane and jep charts, and be confident in your answers.
Good luck
Pm me if you want to know anything about the company

I interviewed there. It is the traditional interview. Know systems of the aircraft you fly on (always know your Emer Procedures & Limitations). Some high altitude aerodynamics. I flew part 121 prior and there were some questions about that. I would say know the type of flying you do now. You should already know approach charts and IFR stuff and that stuff is always asked on interviews. If you know your IFR rules, regulations, procedures, etc. you are golden and I think that type of knowledge during an interview shows to them you are a professional and you know your stuff. The sim was a little rough for me but I knew the instrument procedures and that is what they are looking for. I guess there is always the typical HR and CRM type questions. Be prepared for that kind of stuff. CRM what does it mean to you, and they always give you a question when the captain does something wrong what are you going to do. I have gotten the question have you ever broken a regulation.

Or you could ask how well a CRJ handles during high speed taxi. Next...

HA HA!!! Good one.

Let's talk about the diversion to GRB in the middle of the summer for Type IV that some dummy started that never happened. Then maybe we can discuss the idiot that started the alledged "SYR one engine running while no one in the cockpit" incident that didn't happen either.

How about barely missing the mountain in Montana one? You know, turning the right way on a missed approach. Or the hydraulic failure into Milwaukee one? Maybe it's all the failed upgrades one. No, that can't be it at all. How about the melt down in SOC last year when they couldn't find all the crewmembers? No, still a miss. How about the number of pilots that will time out come November this year? No. . . can't be that either.
