“I have been a client at Emerald Coast for approx 4 months. I would like to thank you and your incredible staff for helping me with my career. Yesterday, both Southwest and FedEx offered me a CJO and I owe it all to Emerald Coast. I have been and will be referring all my friends and co-workers to Emerald Coast because you were definitively the difference during my interviews. I cannot say enough great things about your company and your staff. I am truly grateful.”

“Thank you so much for all of your guidance at the in-person seminar a month ago in ATL, and for your handiwork during my top-off just over a week ago. Your honesty, assistance, and constructive criticism was very helpful. I also really appreciated your vote of confidence in me! Thank you for helping to build me up before sending me in for my big day!”

Why should I choose emerald coast?

Emerald Coast Interview Consulting has been in the business of helping our clients reach their career goals since 2002.  Our dedicated team of more than 40 Pilot and Human Relations coaches has an exceptional track record for success. 

An airline career is worth millions of dollars, and airline interviews are often once in a lifetime opportunity. Working with a professional can help provide you with the extra poise, confidence, and communication skills that you need to be successful. We also have dedicated CRM training for specific carriers that utilize this exercise as part of the interview. 

Our program has helped more than 20,000 pilots successfully secure jobs in our industry. Our focus, however, is always on you—our next client.  We are so confident that twenty years after we started, we still offer the industry’s only money-back guarantee.  We are confident we can help you.  Call us and let’s discuss how we can help you reach your dream job!

which program is right for me?

We recommend the complete Interview Success Package for most of our potential clients.  Since 2002, we’ve maintained a “once a client, always a client” policy. That allows you to prepare for multiple interviews for one fee and gives you options if you are just starting out and expecting follow-on interviews during your career, or if you are now applying and getting multiple interview opportunities at different companies.  One price covers it all!  We want you to prepare early, and do not charge you for subsequent interviews at other airlines. 

The Interview Success Package includes our complete online library of academics (current & archived audio and video content), unlimited training attendance at our Rapid-Fire Training events, CRM training and technical reviews for airlines that require those events, and a one-on-one intensive mock interview which we call a “Top Off” for each scheduled interview.  If you are willing to put the work in and complete our program and are not hired, we offer the industry’s only money back guarantee.  Please read the refund policy for specific details.

We understand some clients may already feel ready for their interviews but still need some help with the CRM interactive exercises in use at some airlines.

The CRM-ONLY package offers that option.  The CRM training includes academics and allows you to participate in a scenario-based training workshop with instructors that have helped thousands navigate this challenging process.  The CRM exercise is a one-time event and does not provide the guarantee or unlimited use.

What is the money back guarantee?

Emerald Coast Interview Consulting offers the only money back guarantee in the industry.   We stand behind you and are confident that our program and approach will help get you hired.   We don’t make money if you don’t win, and are willing to put our skin in the game to prove it.  Our goal is to differentiate our product and demonstrate unmatched accountability to our clients.

We offer this guarantee because we are confident in our program and its proven results!  Please understand the difference between a guarantee and a refund.  We do not issue refunds after a purchase is made. This is not a “try it and see if you like it” program.  What we offer is a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you complete our program and are not hired.  Before you purchase, we are glad to discuss the program in detail to make sure it is the right fit for you.  Please review our refund policy for specific details.  

    How does your refund policy work?

    We will refund your purchase if you complete our course and are subsequently turned down for employment based on your interview performance.  Our goal is to differentiate our product and demonstrate unmatched accountability to our clients.

    That accountability requires the client to do their part as well.  To qualify, you must begin our program at least 30 days before the interview. You are a client for life at Emerald Coast, and part of the reason for that promise is getting ready early has proven to be the single best predictor of success at your interview.  You need time to prepare for the many facets of these complex interviews.

    We expect you to make a commitment to your training.  We will refund your purchase if you complete our course and are subsequently turned down for employment based on your interview performance. Completing the course means completing the online academics, attending at least three rapid fire training sessions, and a top off at least 48 hours prior to your interview. Additionally, we require you to have fully and completely discussed with us any negative items on your application and disclose these on the application before you are scheduled for your interview.

    For interviews with CRM events, we require you to attend at least one CRM training event to qualify for any refund.  Additionally, we require you to have fully and completely discussed any negative items on your application and disclose these on the application before you are scheduled for your interview.  We cannot help you deal with these issues if you withhold this type of information.

    We will not provide refunds under these conditions:

    1. Program was not started at least 30 days prior to the target interview
    2. Failure to complete any of the required training sections
    3. Decisions made for any reason—personal or professional—to not use the product. Sales are final at the time of purchase. Intellectual property like music and software cannot be returned once you’ve downloaded it online. Our product is similarly not returnable.
    4. Failure to disclose any damaging information on your application prior to being called for an interview.
    5. Failure due to knowledge testing, simulator evaluation, psychological tests, or any area not specifically covered by the Emerald Coast training program.

    Emerald Coast has helped more than 20,000 pilots successfully get hired. Refunds and rejections are fortunately rare. We strive to be fair and stand behind our product and our reputation. We respectfully ask our clients to also meet their obligations in how they prepare for these airline opportunities.  If you are willing to do the work—we are confident you will be successful.

    What is your success ratio?

    We have averaged an overall success rate of around 85%. Our military clients typically average above 94%.

    How do I pay?

    We accept ALL major credit and debit cards for purchase.

    How do I schedule a training event?

    There is a section inside each program where you can schedule a training event for your training program.

    You can log into your purchased program by going to https://programs.emeraldcoastinterviewconsulting.com/login 

    There you will find links to schedule webinars, rapid fires, United Airlines technical skill assessment reviews (UA-TSAs), CRM Training events, and top-offs with our staff.

    How are your programs structured?

    Our program starts with a comprehensive set of online academics you can review at your leisure.  The academics offer detailed strategies for understanding the components of your interview and how to structure your answers in ways that play to your strengths.  The online core course is about 3.5 hours, but there are optional and archived academics you can review as your interest and schedule allow.

    The next training block is Rapid-Fires—question and answer practice in a small group setting. These sessions are designed to be a safe and supportive environment for you to get practice and learn from some of the best Human Relations coaches in the business.  These sessions last 2.5 hours, and you can attend as many as you’d like.  These are typically offered multiple times a day, MondaySaturday, and are seat limited to allow each interviewee to get plenty of participation.  We urge you to do as many of these as it takes to get comfortable and confident with your presentation.

    CRM Training events teach you how to navigate the complicated Line Oriented Interview or Situation Based Interview events in vogue at several major airlines.  Our instructors will guide you through a systematic approach to dealing with these scenarios, offering you the tools you need to complete these exercises with ease.  Training for these events is offered several times each week, and the events typically last 3-5 hours, depending on group size.  You may audit as many of these as you wish, but we try to limit active participation to clients with a scheduled interview at one of the airlines using these interviews.

    The Technical Skill Assessment Review is an event we offer that is not mandatory but is often highly appreciated by our clients. This is a 2.5 hour review of some of the technical questions asked by airlines during the interview process.

    Finally—you’ll schedule a “Top Off”, or one on one training session with one of our coaches.  Each coach is familiar with your interview and will focus on preparing you for that big day.  These sessions typically run 75-120 minutes.  By the time you get to this point in our program, you are likely very close to being ready.  If we don’t think you are ready—we’ll tell you—and get you the additional training you need.  You can select your Top Off by selecting which airline you are interviewing at and selecting from a range of times our coaches offer.  We pride ourselves on a deep bench and plenty of availability—we’ll be here when you need us.
