Pilot Interview Profile:
It was a pleasant experience. 7 pilots were scheduled, six showed, all were there and ready at 9 am. We all entered a room for a few brief accolades from a few people and then a brief 25-question test. Nothing hard, any ATP can pass, but has an essay question at the end and it counts towards your score. You have 20 min’s to finish, ample time. Afterwards, they split up the group and have three interviews in the morning and three in the afternoon. The afternoon applicants go over to the museum and wait while the morning applicants are interviewed separately. In the interview, there are 4 people on the board, the recruiter, a 747 Fleet Captain, the Asst Chief Pilot and the Chief Flight Engineer. The questions are not technical but more so in line with finding out what type of person you are. If you’re there, it’s obvious you have enough experience to interview and can learn the aircraft. They are interested in what type of employee and pilot you'll be. A few CRM questions, again, nothing any ATP could not answer. Afterwards, you are asked to leave the room and someone comes and gets you to either ask you to take a drug test or not. If you take the drug test, you’re put into the hiring pool and giving as letter. If you’re not giving the drug test, they are not interested. I was emailed a hiring pool letter a few days later and am just waiting. I was told they are hiring through next year, they interview every other Thursday. Extremely nice group with no pressure, they tried to make everyone comfortable.

What a nice group of people!

Was told by the recruiter that my resume was one of 15 out of 1,700 selected. I felt like a winner and said so during the interview.

Was asked what kind of international experience I had. I mentioned Canada and Mexico. I also mentioned France and Spain. But, since it was in little airplanes, I didn't think it valid to include. A Captain said it was.

Was asked what kind of qualifications make me more worthy to be considered over others. I said that although some people might have more impressive accopmlishments, that those accomplishments don't necessarily make them better people. Was asked what a weakness was that I had.

I included my license suspension from 25 years ago when I was a teenager as well as a flat tire I had 27 years ago.

They asked about both. They seemed to really appreciate honesty.

A great experience, really nice people, and the highlight of my career regardless of the outcome.

Received the telephone call 72 hours before the interview. The prevoius gouges about the types of questions asked on the test and interview are pretty much spot on.
But, the process has changed. Now, right after the test, they commence the board interviews. No more dog and pony show.Evidently, they were wasting their time and resources getting everyones backgound and urine checked when not everyone is going to pass muster. Last week, only two of the six made it to the CSI background investigator. I made it this week. I think too other guys did too.

All the guys were furloughed airline except me. Ages:38, 46,46,54,56.

I went to meet the VP of Flight operations about 5 minutes after the board interview. Nice guy. Then I went to a different building where the CSI investigator verified my background information. Then on to the hospital for the urine submission.

They told us before testing that we would get our interview results before 5PM the same day. That says alot about the type of company that Evergreen is.

We would get one of three result later in the day. A Thanks but no thanks, placement in a hiring pool, or a job offer.

I got into the hiring pool. It works on a point system. Your could be in it for weeks, months, years, or maybe never get the call. It means that although your interview was a success, there is no guarantee that they will offer you a job.

An airline friend of mine said that the airlines draw from their hiring pools all the time so we'll see.

Best of luck!
