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. Mar 18, 2020 Interview was different than most others due to the COVID-19 situation. I was first given the presentation that was one on one. after that, I was given the 30 question iPad exam. It was straight forward with Instrument and Commercial questions. Note that all charts that were given were Jepp so make sure you review those. After that, I waited about 15 mins for the HR questions which were basic and straight forward. After that, the chief pilot asked me question about an approach plate (also...

  2. Mar 12, 2020 Good experience with Horizon. It was a short walk from the hotel to the headquarters where we interviewed. The five of us hung out in the lobby until we were brought back to the meeting room for the presentation. Of the four regionals I interviewed at, this presentation was the shortest, so be sure to ask questions if they don't cover something you are curious about. They will happily answer. We were next given the technical quiz on the iPads. Of the 30 questions, most were IFR related, and... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Feb 25, 2020 I submitted my resume online and heard back in 4 days from Horizon. The interview format goes mostly like the other gouges. There were 10 of us for the interview date. Don't know how many offers were given. Once you leave the room for the one on one interview, you really don't see your group anymore. You might see some when you go get drug tested. So I know offers were made for both the Q and the Jet. Study the gouge questions and will be fine. I got the KOBG to KOTH for the technical. Know... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Feb 25, 2020 Trust the gouge. It works. iPad test with multiple choice and fill in the blanks. HR interview and then Chief Pilot has me do a RNP approach. I feel that it was fair but tough and that I earned my... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Feb 25, 2020 The interview process matched pretty close to the previous gouges. There were 10 of us in the interview. Don't know how many got offers. Everyone was very nice and felt like the interview was not hard but felt like I earned a slot. Study the gouges and you will be fine. I got the LDA approach into KSLC and was asked a few questions regarding it. (view the study guide of this website).  Was given lunch and then headed over to the drug testing facility/fingerprints. Good luck to... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Feb 12, 2020 The study guide helped. Interview was simple, scenario question was very basic KHLN ILS 27 descent planning, chart questions,... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Jan 31, 2020 Rotor Transition Program - RTP Interview Interview team was very friendly and professional. Prior military helicopter pilot with Private ASEL and 132 PIC hours of fixed-wing time. Company overview followed by an HR interview. About 10 TMAAT questions found in the gouge here. Use STAR method to prepare.  No iPad test. No technical questions. No Sim/Scenario. Training date and airframe are determined later in the... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Jan 31, 2020 Applied for the Rotary Transition Program and was accepted. The interview process was very comfortable. There was a group of us that all attended a presentation about the company. We met the Director of Training and the Chief Pilot. We were then called back for individual interviews which was all HR questions. Everything was very professional and friendly. Because this was for the Rotary Transition Program there was not a technical portion. About a week later I was offered a position... Continue reading this interview experience
