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 29, 2022 Incredible process. Everything was pretty quick from phone screening to getting the YES! Someone will reach out and set up a phone screening, pretty straight forward, they offer to fly you out (or commute if you are local) and an interview date is scheduled. I live in FL so they flew me in a day before and set up hotel accommodations. On interview day, the hotel shuttle will take you to the hub (which is so cool) and the fun starts with an iPad test. 30 questions MC / short answer which all...

  2. Mar 22, 2022 Very similar to the gouges! The iPad quiz to start was lots of familiar questions from the study guide, with the addition of some basic aerodynamics (AOA, longitudinal stability, that sort of thing). I had a scenario on a flight from Eugene to Redmond with Jepp charts, and of course 4-5 questions on holding. I was local so the last one to interview, and I ended up waiting for a little over 3 hours in the waiting area for my turn. Pretty tiring, make sure you have something to keep you...

  3. Mar 22, 2022 Start off on the night before an interview. They will fly you to SEATTLE. After you got all belonging. Then walk following the sign to hotel transportation pier. After you get there call to hotel for airport pickup. My night stay at Residence Inn is very convenient to go to the interview site or connecting with a local transportation. Then here we go. The interview. I walked from hotel to the building called 'The Hub' takes about 5min. Then have to sign in by their ipad. After that just... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Mar 22, 2022 Just like everyone said on this website is exactly how it happened. I would study up and just have specific scenarios for the TMAAT questions. The IPAD test was straight forward and I feel if you do well on that the technical oral should be pretty simple. I don't use Jepp charts at the moment but study and ask a friend to print some out for for you if possible which I did. I got the ILS into KSBA which I have flown to that airport several times and have done the VOR/GPS but never the ILS. Be... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Mar 15, 2022 8 people showed up. A few local and many all over the country. Stayed in hotel 5 minutes walk away. Shuttle is provided as well. Process started 8 am and lasted till 2pm. Great experience. You fly in a night before, if you cannot make the return flight after interview, then they may schedule another night at the hotel. Once you get to SeaTac, call hotel to arranged shuttle from Airport. Overall schedule. 30 questions (60mins allowed) Company presentation. Individual interviews. If offered,...

  6. Mar 09, 2022 The interview process was pretty much how every other on here went. When we got there they first brought us into a room with ipads in it for a 30 question multiple choice test. If you are current in IFR it's pretty easy. That was pretty much the technical portion of the interview. After, they brought in people 1 at a time, with 2 interviews going on at the same time. They were about 45 minutes. Started with hading me a jeppesen approach plate, a 10-9 and details of the flight to be... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Mar 07, 2022 Pilot Development Program  30-45 minute presentation prior to interviews. Interview lasts around 30 minutes. All HR questions and based on core values. Really straightforward.  (view the study guide of this... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Feb 23, 2022 The interview pretty much went as others on this website described. The phone interview was them basically checking your hours, flying record and desired start time. They fly you to SEA and put you up in a very convenient hotel. Myself and the other applicants were a little shy/nervous, but it really helped to chat with folks…it was nice to hear about other people’s background and flying experiences, and it took the edge off. The IPad test was very easy…I think…you... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Feb 23, 2022 Really enjoyed the whole experience. The headquarters is impressive. The shuttle picked us up from the hotel at 7:30. We started with a 50 question multiple choice test. The questions are at random from a larger question bank so no two people have the exact same test. The questions covered mostly instrument concepts with some basic aerodynamics and weather too. They followed with a company presentation and Q & A session. Then they broke up into interview groups of 3 (Horizon pilot,... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Feb 16, 2022 This is for the Pilot Development Program with Horizon Air. We all came into a classroom-like setting and had a 2 hour introduction to personnel and company. Questions were answered then we went back out to the lobby. Individual interviews were initiated a few minutes later, panel style with pilot and recruiter. Nothing technical, only behavioral just to get to know you better. TMAAT questions. (view the study guide of this website).  This company is very family-like, everyone is...
