    Im considering to apply for Compass Airlines and was if anyone has interviewed with the company recently? If you could tell me anything about the interview and the written exam that would be great!

    If you have any experience working there: how is it? Would you recommend working there?

    Anything about Compass Airlines please feel free to post.

    Thanks!

    Im currently at 1388TT/1033 Multi/960.8 Turbine

    Weather or not they will come on out and admit it, there are literally dozens of members on JetCareers who either do currently fly for Compass, or have in the recent past. Captains and FOs alike. There are even some folks who've worked in Compass ALPA and even in the recruiting department.

    There is a LOT of knowledge about it on this forum.

    Recommend you start here:

    It's a good company, I was only there 5 months but living in base was great. The training sucks, you basically just teach yourself systems, but I think a lot of regionals these days do computer based training. The hotel in MSP is really nice, sims were fun but being stuck in STL for a few weeks in the crummy hotel was less than joyous. On the line guys were all positive and most had come from other regionals, so they knew how things could be worse. The ERJ-175 is a great airplane, very comfortable and stupid easy to fly. CP flights are longer and you get a lot of fun west coast flying. I would have been a line holder after 3 months (if I would have stayed) and the dude senior to me was an alternate for upgrade. That would have been like a 6 month upgrade but they slowed down training in the summer so I think a new hire now would upgrade in 18+ months. Good luck and I'd be happy to answer any questions!

    Gwood, did you type something wrong? How do you get 1033 multi and 960 turbine with only 1388TT?
