Hey everyone, I was wondering how CFI interviews went for other instructors, where every they applied at. I feel like i had a bad experience. I had my first CFI interview yesterday at Transpac, and at the end I didn't get a we'll call you back or nothing, I got a thank you, and a question "you don't need to come back in the building for anything do you". I can say that the facilities were great, and they had a lot of aircraft, and looked to be big on maintenance as expected. I feel like the interview went smooth. I studied a lot before the interview to be ready almost like a checkride, I brought my lesson plan, taught it, and answered the basic questions. Some faults I feel i made was trying to answer the question "how do you teach a student to judge or eye 1/2 mile?" when staying away from a field. I've always been taught by using a tree line adjacent to the field you may be following, or whatever the case is. Also being in the mid west, I've always had that advantage, I also think I was over thinking the question and the Chief Pilot (I guessing was his title) said exactly what I was thinking. After that we flew the sim, which the NAV 2 wasn't working for some reason, so i had to go back between the VOR and LOC for the approach which was not bad. One thing I did mess up on was putting the identifier into the receiver (Garmin 430), which I never seen one without a nearest button, which was fine, as a pilot I have to make it work. I totally forgot the "I" before the localizer identifier, which I honestly didn't think you could put it in this way in the Garmin 430, since all the DME required approaches I've done was to a VOR. (looks like im still learning), I set the GPS up to reference the airport since of course thats where the localizer is, which i thought was fine, I flew the approach, never went full scale even though it was touchy, flew the missed and got to the hold. I was nervous and completely forgot wind drift, the first time around I was to the right of the course coming in, something i've experienced before, and stated as i would teach a student that we would put a greater wind drift correction in if the same thing happened the next time around which is what happened, we just about got it before I maintained my heading due to being in the "cone of confusion". The third inbound was great. as I said before I forgot about wind drift, and it wasn't mentioned, which of course led to me not correcting for time also(stupid me). After that, we got out the sim, went out side, and that was it, the only mistake mentioned was not using the "I" Identifier when entering the localizer into the GPS receiver, on the way out. As said before, the facilities looked great, incentives and benefits seemed great, but the atmosphere after the interview made me feel like a bad pilot almost, or that I completely bombed the interview, maybe I did idk. I walked in confident, but humble because I don't know everything. I can't say anything bad, but maybe I caught them on a bad day, or I did just bomb it all together.
