At ExpressJet, we understand that you may have flying or other obligations that prevent you from traveling to a traditional interview in Atlanta or Houston. We are committed to providing you with flexible availability that will allow you to interview with our chief pilots, who will serve as your advocates throughout your career, at any of our bases, at any time.
Here’s how it works:
- Complete an application at expressjet.com/apply or via AirlineApps*
- Choose a date and base to visit at tinyurl.com/XJTChiefPilots
- ExpressJet recruiters – all pilots themselves – will contact you to confirm a date and time
- Interview with a chief pilot, tour the base and – hopefully – leave with a conditional job offer (CJO)!
*Candidates must be within six months of earning ATP/R-ATP requirements
Why would I want to meet with a chief pilot?
Chief pilots are your support system at each base. Their role is multifaceted, focused on being an advocate and mentor for their pilots. They also oversee flight operations and performance in their base, and they’re the person you’d come to if you have questions about your schedule, have a family emergency or need career advice. It’s always good to get to know the “boss” before you start a new job, and this is your opportunity to see how great ExpressJet’s leaders are.
What is a chief pilot interview?
The chief pilot interviews are exactly like our regular pilot interviews in our Atlanta or Houston offices. You’ll meet with the chief pilot and a recruiter, complete a knowledge/skills test and an HR interview, and – hopefully – leave with a conditional job offer (CJO)! Besides not having to travel far if you’re local to a base, you’ll also get to tour your future digs, meet your future boss and get a taste of what your days will be like as an ExpressJet first officer.
Where can I interview?
You can interview at any of our crew domiciles: Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Houston or Newark.
When can I interview?
Anytime. You tell us your availability and we will do everything we can to make that happen.
Where do I schedule my interview with my future chief pilot?
First, make sure you’ve completed a first officer application at expressjet.com/apply. Then, sign up for a base and date at tinyurl.com/XJTChiefPilots.
Once your information is received, a member of the ExpressJet Airlines Pilot Recruitment team will be in touch to set up your appointment. We’ll see you soon!
