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. Feb 19, 2021 I studied the Aviationinterview study guide and it helped me a lot. There were 8 of us and one did not get the job so don't take it for granted even though you have been called for a in person interview and take it serious. they started taking our body temperature followed by visitor check in process then we were sent to a huge room where they started spreading papers which had 2 questions on it.  (view the study guide of this website).  Then they did a brief presentation about the...

  2. Feb 19, 2021 As previously mentioned, the gouge here was spot on. Everyone brought into a room and asked to write the answer to one of the two questions (both questions are on the gouge here) on a piece of paper at each seat. Following that, presentation on the company, collecting logbooks and distributing iPads for the technical exam. The exam is 30 question (1 hour) and is a mix of questions you’d see on the ATP written, Jepp chart questions, and given info about a Horizon flight, answer...

  3. Jan 12, 2021 The interview was pretty straight forward. I came in and the first thing we did was go over a presentation about the company and everything Horizon has to offer. After the presentation we were given a 30 question iPad exam, which we had an hour to complete. The exam covered basic ifr and route planning questions. After the test it was time for the face to face interview with a pilot and someone from HR. I was asked standard HR questions, and I was asked to brief a Jeppeson approach chart...

  4. Dec 14, 2020 Website was very helpful. Study the scenario based questions. Know how to brief the approach and be sure to read the notes section. They will try to catch you on that. Other than that HR questions were straight forward just be truthful and... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Dec 04, 2020 Interview was very straight forward and similar to previous posts. Started with a presentation about the company. After presentation we took the written tests on the Ipads, questions were spot on with the guide on this site. After that the individual interviews began. I had an HR representative and a Pilot. There were few tell me about a time questions along with WWYD questions. I was asked about Horizons values as well, and then asked which one stood out most to me. I was also asked to...

  6. Nov 18, 2020 Interview was straight forward! The questions both technical and HR I reviewed from this site helped me a lot. We did a technical question test, and then we were called in one at a time for the interview portion. You are asked general questions about your aviation career, (view the study guide of this website).  Then you are given and approach plate and a scenario to review before they ask you questions on the arrival and approach. They will ask you about planning a descent and what... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Nov 18, 2020 I recieved a call from HR a few weeks after applying. After a brief phone screen they invited me in for the interview that was about a week after the call. The really nice HR lady asked simple and easy questions. (view the study guide of this website). Then we talked about the company outlook and E175 flying and Alaska flying opportunities. Once at the interview, it was a very nice and relaxing experience. Everyone there to interview had at least 4-5 years of prior 121 experience with a lot... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. 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...

  9. 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
