FREE Horizon Air pilot interview information and gouge

Submitted an online resume with no letters of recommendation and on the same day received an email to set up a phone screen. I set that up for a few days later, and during the phone screen (no questions asked, was just given information about the company), we set up an in person interview. There were no surprises in person. A group of about five were brought in to listen to a short presentation about the company. It was mostly information you will already know if you're doing your research. We were then each given an iPad to complete the online technical test. 30 questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Make sure you know holding speeds (3 questions on that). About 5 questions on a scenario regarding a flight plan they show you. Nothing you wouldn't know from flying an IFR cross country, but it does show Jepp plates so familiarize yourself with those. Tech test was much more casual than anticipated, no one oversaw us taking it and applicants may or may not have whispered questions and answers to each other. We'll call that using...

  1. Jan 10, 2022 Gouge is quite accurate though the current PDP (pilot development program) doesn’t require 30min iPad test, none of us had 1500 hours so we work towards that and notify around 1200 hours that we are approaching 1500. TMAAT questions were spot on so the study guide proved useful. They want to hear your experiences and how you handled situations in the cockpit under pressure and how you interact with different people. Overall very friendly people, and a good team to be part of, 5... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Dec 17, 2021 Arrived 30 minutes early to check in. Interview process began with giving them our logbooks which they reviewed while we completed the i-pad instrument test. This included 30 questions which required basic instrument skills in coded weather, notams, Jepp approach plates, accounting for en-route times, holding speeds/times, basic aerodynamics. Scores were not mentioned. Some questions are multiple choice some require you to type your response. Following the test, the Horizon and Alaska reps... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Dec 14, 2021 Part one was over the phone. Interviewer only asked about check ride failures. In person interview started at 8. We were bussed over from the hotel. Interview started with a technical test on the iPad over instrument flying, charts, and weather. Afterwards, there was a presentation about the company, then we were called in one by one for the panel interview. I was handed an airfield diagram, en route chart, and approach chart along with a weather report, and was asked to brief all of the... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Dec 07, 2021 The interview was about 10 minutes, TMAAt questions then asked what diversity is for me and does it change over time. Also asked to narrate my flying career and how I started. After the panel interview the group left and 1 remained and showed me approach plates and asked what threats I see, when to turn for the final intercept (lead in radial) after which, he also left and tell me to wait. After about 5 minutes they all came back and congratulated... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Dec 06, 2021 They provided the flight and the hotel, plus transfers to and from the Pilot Pathway interview. First impressions were amazing. the facility in Seattle is very impressive. First a presentation on the company. Then they took us in 1 by one and asked a lot of tell me a time when questions. No tech questions. Then we left. Very simple, the people were very...

  6. Dec 01, 2021 Arrived at the Alaska/Horizon Hub at 7:45 for an 8:00 showtime along with 2 other candidates. Waited in the lobby after checking in with the receptionist where we were greeted by the Horizon HR rep. Took the elevator upstairs to what they called the “living room” which was a super clean, modern, comfortable area. They brought us into a conference room where we took a very basic 30 question technical quiz on the iPad. Questions were very simple IFR, airspeed limits, and a few...

  7. Nov 30, 2021 The gouge is pretty accurate. I showed at 0740 for the 0800 arrival time. we were taken upstairs to the lobby area. Several employees introduced them selves. We then moved into a meeting room and were given a presentation about the company and a couple of employees talked with us as well. We were then given an iPad with a 30 question test involving fairly basic instrument questions. After the test a couple more employees introduced themselves and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Everyone was... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Nov 18, 2021 The info on this site still holds. You’ll get a pre-interview phone call to see if you meet basic quals. They’ll schedule an in person interview in Seattle. They offered me two options about 2-3 weeks out from phone call. They’ll fly you in and give a hotel. I stayed at Residence Inn (6min walk to Hub). Hotel shuttle from airport and to interview. Contract shuttle to airport from interview. We had 9 people scheduled for interview. Right now they’re offering Alaska... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Nov 18, 2021 Same as everyone else has written. Make sure to prepare well by practicing the interview TMAAT questions given on the site. They were the same as was given during the interview. Make sure to read the notes in the approach brief and acknowledge any notams or weather phenomena like freeing fog as they like to ask about those sorts of things. Good...

  10. Nov 18, 2021 We were 10 people to be interviewed. Check in at 8am, 30 questions on IPAD. A presentation of Horizon. And then the interview itself. They asked about ILS 7 of KSBA, brief the approach plate. They asked about TMAAT questions, the gouge is really spot on. Good... Continue reading this interview experience

    It helped guide my study for my interview. It made me feel more confident going into having read different experiences. The study questions also helped a lot.
