I worked at Compass Airlines full-time (Less than a year)
The interview process was just how it sld be. They gave you a informative presentation then if you were selected gave you a f2f interview and that was it. They didn't make you wait long to find out if you got the invite to attend their flight school.
Once I began to prepare to leave for Minneapolis (that's where flight school is) is when the "switch" in the phrase "bait and switch" started happening. First off spelling my name wrong on my airline reservation sld have been my first clue. Do they realize TSA may not let me catch my flight because it doesn't match my id?!? The accommodations were nice, transportation to and from the facility were great, but the first day of class once again they spelled my name wrong so I received a badge and all pre-printed, new hire paperwork. When I pointed it out they said they would correct it but I never did see a corrected badge or even that little printed out piece of paper on the table changed. Unprofessional unlike the interview and like some of the the other reviews had mentioned they don't listen to their employees that was my experience too. They gave us lots of info about their flying schedule and seniority and I was lead to believe that because Compass was a smaller airline I would fly shorter trips than a large commercial airline, and have 3 days off per week, but be on call (reserve) the other 4. Found out I could be gone all those 4 days or more and they have something called "ready reserve" which means you sit at the airport for 8 hours unless you get called to fly. I expect long trips of major carriers but the recruiting presentation was deceiving. There's either a disconnect between the recruiting department and headquarters or it's intentional to attract as many applicants as possible.
