Pilot Interview Profile:
Pretty much as previously described. You are met at the office in Forrest Hills and you stow your luggage, grab a water and follow their directions. Fingerprinting and drug tests are administered and you are taken to a company briefing. Everyone I have ever met at JetBlue was wonderful and this was no exception. They want you to be relaxed, be yourself and succeed. Lots of TMAAT questions. Take your time and be thoughtful in your responses. The interview is yours to screw up. They are giving you a chance to speak and tell them about how you have handled situations in your life. Some of the candidates were given about 15 questions and I only got five. I gave thorough and complete answers including the situation, the action taken, the results and the follow up.
You will receive an exit interview from HR and are free to mill around the briefing room, chatting with other pilots or asking questions. Don't be shy.

Pilot Interview Profile:
The interview was spot on the gouge. I arrived in JFK and got to the interview about 2 hours early. I commuted in that morning. First I was taken in for the drug test then the fingerprinting. Shortly after that I was brought up to another room where Scott Green was giving info on the company and Anna went over all the information that you are required to bring. After about 40 min. two of the HR/Pilot interviewers come and take you out of the room to the interview portion. 5 questions tell me a time when you had an experience. Know the 5 values it goes over well! I went back to the holding area and about an hour after that I was brought into another room with Verna and another pilot. I was offered the job to start in 3 weeks. I applied Jan. 15 for the 3rd time. (They like to purge the system) I was called Feb. 25th for a march 7 interview and class starts April 2nd.

I would say this is one place that makes the interview experience pleasant. Jetblue wants to hire someone that would be enjoyable to work with, not someone that is going to ruin a 4 day trip. If you have no people skills then dont even waste your time going to the interview. Overall it was a great experience. Showed up in the morning and gave a urine sample and was finger printed. After that headed upstairs for a question/answer session with a few pilots while we waited to be called in for individual interviews. My 2 on 1 was with a pilot and people dept. individual. I was asked about 6 questions. Tell us about a crew member you didnt like? Tell us about a situation where you had to teach something to another pilot? 5 core values, what are they? Safety, caring, integrity, fun, passion. Tell us what you know about jetblue? How did you save the day? This lasted about 25 minutes and then it was over to the exit interview with another pilot. He asked me if I had any questions about the interview or the company. I think this is one more look at you to see if there is anything they may have missed. I did not do an interview prep, I just went in and relaxed and tried to be myself. I think they can see if you've done interview prep and Im not really sure its such a good idea. Rehearsed answers dont show who you are and probably is evident throughout the interview. Do your best and everything will be fine, they really want to see who you are and want to hire you. Good luck.

Pilot Interview Profile:
Applied sometime around Nov/Dec 2006. Went to the open house in Orlando, FL on Feb., 17th. I was called for an interview about 6 days later. Interview was on March 9 with about 90 other pilots. JetBlue asks that you be there 90 minutes early. You go into a banquet room and several key employees (chief pilots, Flt ops, fleet mgr, ect) rotate in and out ALL day answering questions while you wait for your turn.

You get two interviews, one 2 on 1 and a 1 on 1. My 2 on 1 was with an A320 captain and a flight attendant. We were in a big room with about 15 other pilot interviews going on at the same time. The 1 on 1 was with a People Dept. person...the "exit interview", and that was in an office.

Way less stressful than Southwest...and Southwest wasn't too bad. Lots of the same stuff. TMAT questions. No sim ride and no "LOI" thing that SWA has. My actual interview lasted less then an hour with the 2 on 1. The "exit interview" was about 20 minutes.

I was called 4 days later and offered the "conditional" employment pending the back groung check...also offered a class 2 weeks out from that day.

Only advice I have is bring a couple protein bars. Thankfully I did. There is no time to get lunch somewhere.

Good luck.
