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. Sep 14, 2021 Use the gouge and you will be fine. I got the feeling that they really want to hire people and thus the interview was pretty quick. They did not have us do the company values/history writing assignment at the beginning in the classroom. Show up 15 mins early to the Hub. The iPad test was 30 questions, multiple choice, just like an IR knowledge test. Essentials to know for interview process are how to interpret METARs, TAFs, sectional and Jepp plates. The knowledge test was heavy on alternate... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Aug 25, 2021 All recent previous feedback is spot on. 1) If you are local, plan on staying until about 2 as they cycle the out of towners through first. 2) The visitor parking lot is immediately below (NORTH) of the Hub where the interviews on the WEST side of highway 99. STUDY JEPPS and INSTRUMENTS; you will be given weather and a flight plan to brief to one of the Horizon pilots. HR discussion (describe a time when) was about 40 minutes; tech brief was only approx. 20 min. Assuming you are... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. Aug 25, 2021 Interview was as stated in the other reviews! Super straight forward. The hardest question I was asked was to calculate a descent from 31,000 to 10,000. Everyone was super friendly and... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Aug 25, 2021 The interview was verbatim what is on this guide. Hotel the night before, shuttle pickup at 7:30 am, wait in lobby until brought upstairs where you place logbooks on your resume. 5 sentence or less essay on the history OR which of the 5 core values stands out, 30 minute presentation on the company, 30 question iPad multiple choice test (except fill in the blank for holding speeds and ifr obstacle clearance in mountainous terrain), then waiting for the HR and technical. HR portion was your... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Aug 25, 2021 The technical gouge is great for the iPad portion of the interview. I would recommend really focusing on the scenario based questions. The verbal Technical portion of the interview is situational and there are a few questions on the Ipad portion as well. The team really made it feel like they want you to succeed. It feels you have the job as long as you don't do something during the interview to change their... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Aug 18, 2021 Set up at the Hotel, there is a restaurant in the parking lot that is good. I got there 13:30 the day before. It was great. Request the bus to take you to the Horizon Hub the night before. They will depart at 7:30 to get you there early. Meet the staff when the building opens and mingle with others there for the interview. Peggy introduces herself and walk everyone down to the classroom. When you walk in they ask you set your logbook on the resume that belongs to you so they can begin... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Aug 17, 2021 This was the second time that I had applied, so the 2 weeks it took to hear back was in reference to the second application window. The interview was scheduled about three weeks after the phone screen. A couple days after the phone screen, you receive an email with directions on scheduling plane flights if required, hotel reservation if required, what to bring, etc. Note: at the time of this writing, masks are still required inside the Alaska Airlines HUB building. The hotel had a... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Aug 06, 2021 Overall the interview was a great experience. The detailed descriptions here are spot on, so I won't go into too much detail. The first portion was to describe one of the company's core values that resonates with you the most, or describe what you know about Horizon. I wrote a paragraph on a single page. The gouge here is spot on and will get you through the Ipad technical. The ipad technical has 30 questions and it seems to be generated from a larger question bank. I didn't have any...

  9. Aug 06, 2021 As previously stated, the gouges will more than prepare you for the interview. Everyone at Horizon/Alaska was very friendly and made the experience as low-stress as possible. After the 'answer 1 of the 2 questions in essay form' and the '30 question iPad test', they work their way through the group conducting interviews 2 at a time. I did hear some of the group got the LDA approach into Salt Lake City but my group got the ILS 12 into Bozeman (KBZN). The HR/Technical interview was very...

  10. Aug 06, 2021 Experience is exactly as prior interviewers have described. 8am begins with a presentation overviewing the airline, bases, aircraft, benefits. Then there's the 30 question iPad test, some of which involves questions regarding a hypothetical cross country flight; mine was from KRBG-KOTH. After the iPad test, all the interviewees wait for their turn for the 30-45 minute HR/technical evaluation. It's a great opportunity to get to know some of your possible future coworkers. Most of them were... Continue reading this interview experience
