|Many members of the community have recently PM'd me for the set list of interview questions at Porter. Searching the forums may reveal some of the questions that have been used before. The questions aren't that dissimilar to that of other regional companies (Jazz, Sky, Encore, etc.)
For those looking for more information on the interview process.
It's a panel style interview, with 3 or 4 people comprised of people from the flight operations team and/or human resources. The interview normally takes 15-20 minutes, while others have gone as long as 30 mins. Before the interview, the panel will introduce themselves, and try to make you comfortable. One person will ask a question, while the others potentially write down your answer. The interviewers have a set list of questions that they will ask you. These questions range from behavioral, to operational, and technical.
For example, here are some questions that may be asked ...
- "Your flying with a certain Captain that seems to disregard the SOPs, although safety isn't compromised, How would you deal with this individual? What if safety was compromised?"
- "During an irregular operation (IROPS) situation (ie diverting to YYZ due fog at YTZ) causing a delay what could you do to help passengers?"
- "What are some of the challenges Porter will face in the future? What about other regional airlines?"
- "What do you know about RNP, LPV, SCDA, and PMA approaches? What about RVOP/LVOP?"
All the best to those who will be interviewing in the near future.
Be prepared, be yourself, and you should do just fine!
