I understand that everyone since this round of interviews since early this year have been asked "Are you willing to fly the Embraer?" However having said that at least a few weeks ago resource planning have not actually allocated new F/o's to the e-jet yet. It is anyones guess as to when the change over will occur one would imagine very soon if not now. Latest memo said 289 new pilots between now and the end of 08. Not including resignations and the couple of skippers who might get a crack at the 777 toward the end of 08.
hmm as for interview questions like the other guys said 10 tech and 2 behavioral questions. And a tell us about your incidents question.
I was surprised at how in-depth the behavioral questions were. I thought I had put a very comprehensive answer covering the what happened, this is what I did, and this is the outome. There were Many probing questions, ok what did the company think of that? What could you have done better? How did you come to that decision?
Tech questions included, Winglets, angle of bank for rate one turns at various speeds, holding patterns, decoding met codes, TCAS, Low-Vis Takeoffs, ETOPS, 1 dot high on VASIS vs 1 dot high on PAPI.
