Pilot Interview Profile:
The interview started at 8AM sharp at the Active Aero Services FBO.

It is a very friendly interview process and enjoyable. The morning will start off with an introduction of the company and its future goals. The person presenting the presentation will explain the lifestyle of a pilot working for USA Jet, Non-scheduled cargo.

After the presentation is over HR will likely start taking finger prints.

Next is a series of written tests. The tests include math, physics, mechanical, and matching. These four tests are not designed to finish, so move as quickly as possible and answer as many as you can. The last test is not timed, which is a FAR test that USA Jet has put together. The FAR test had a few tricky questions, but most people do well on the FAR test.

Once all the tests are complete sim evaluations will start. The sim is a PCATD elite simulator set up as a MD-80. The evaluator will be your co-pilot, so make sure to use good CRM as he will be evaluating CRM skills as well. Other than that there are no suprises in the sim evaluation, as they give you a packet that outlines all the information.

USA Jet will buy you lunch, which is a nice gesture. The interview will end with HR and a training captain asking you the TMAAT questions.

Great experience.

The Basics: USA Jet continually interviews to keep their pool full. All new hire class date slots come from the pool. All new guys start as FOs in the DA-20. Training pay is $300/week, with hotel provided for 2 weeks single occupancy/4 weeks double. You go to a base of $33K after training ($50/hr. With a 55 hr. guarantee). Max pay is under $100K. It takes about 1 yr. to go to -9 FO, 2 yrs. for DA-20 Capt, and about 6 for -9 Capt. DA-20 pilots have 10 hard days off/28 day schedule. They are on a pager 24/7 with 25" to be in Operations after callout. DC-9 pilots have 12 hard days off/28 day schedule. The freighter pilots are scheduled as above. The -9 PAX primary guys have a 6/4 schedule 6 months out. The -9 PAX reserve guys are on a 2 hr. callout. If you want to sell your day off to the company, and they want to buy it, you can sell it for 4 hrs. of pay, or you can bank it for future use. All days off are hard, so the company will fly you back to DTW to get your days off if you're on the road.

Interview last Feb. Met at 8 AM. Began with a company introduction and profile with what the company offered it's employees and what was expected of it's pilots. A sixty question multi-choice exam was given-nothing from anywhere particular, just dto see if you know Pt's 61, 91, 121, and 135, emphasis probably more on 91, ie,when is it legal to drop something from the air? (it is legal at times!) There was an essay on what you consider a good captaiin. During the exam, each was introduced to the chief pilot for about 30 min. No hard questions. One that was asked is "how do you determine when to start down from altitude." After the exam, there was a one-one interview with the trainng director. Typical questions.(Whatdid you do here, why did you leave here, etc.Scenario question was, "You are flying with a captain, approach arpt. is at minimums. He insists on flhing one dot low.
