My experience

Me: British 23yo cadet graduated from CTC integrated in February 2017.

Correspondence

* 02 May 2017 - application submitted
* 17 Jul 2017 - email "your online application is not complete" (i emailed tech support asking what this meant as all my documents were uploaded. No reply)
* 28 Jul 2017 - email - "still interested?"
* 04 Aug 2017 - email - "thanks for telling us you're still interested. Your profile is still not complete"
* 24 Aug 2017 - email - "expect a call in the next 14 days" (I hadn't done anything to my profile)
* 31 Aug 2017 - phone call
* 04 Oct 2017 - assessment

I had no interview questions on the phone, it was all admin. He told me my flight report had to be signed, and to email him a signed copy. Once I did he called back and offered me a date. If you need to change the date, you'll have to wait a week or two for another call.

Simulator Assessment

As PM:
LPL Wallasey 2T rw 27
T/O: auto thrust, disconnect at 1500'
General handling
Show position on the chart
LPL RV ILS rw 27

As PF:
LPL Wallasey 2T
General handling
Freeze sim
Passenger heart attack. We were able to DODAR, NITS, set up for the approach
Unfreeze sim
LPL Procedural ILS rw 27

Charts used are Navtech. Our assessor was friendly and helpful, reminded us of pitch/power datums, and fine tuned the thrust throughout (it was the same for everyone who had him).

Interview

What model number are our 737s
How many seats
What protection does it have against ice
What was the DA42 Crosswind limit
How do you calculate crosswind in your head
What was the cruise speed
How long would it take you to travel 40 miles
What is V2
Where is the screenheight

What's your background?
Why did you choose your school?
Why did you want to become a pilot?
What are you doing at the moment?
What was the hardest part in your training?
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Why didn't you join easyJet?
Where else have you applied?
What are your weaknesses?

Do you have any questions?

I asked "what is the selection process, and why are there such random wait times?
They said "no idea... there is no process. It's terrible. Everyone is processed within two weeks but after that, no idea. Everyone will eventually be contacted"

The interview began with admin, a series on disjointed tech questions, then the HR questions. The atmosphere went from pop quiz, to interview, to conversation. They don't require very in depth answers for the tech questions. I had answers for all questions asked of me, and my study was from boards like this and other interviewees.

Unfortunately I was unsuccessful.

Good Luck
