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. Jun 03, 2021 They called you or email you about the interview also they send you to SEA for interview and a night before they put you to the Hotel and they paid for it. Everyone was very nice and great. Make sure you know the JEP chart and APP for sure they ask you for the app briefing at the end. Make sure you study from here that's all you need...

  2. May 14, 2021 The gouges on here were very accurate. If you study them you will be OVER prepared. It was a great experience and the company has great employees who do their best to make you feel relaxed. Again, just study the gouges and you'll do great! Class date TBD as they are waiting on CDC recommendations and can potentially fill classes to a higher... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. May 14, 2021 Just a base line on my background I have 4 friends/past coworkers that currently work at Horizon and I came from the pacific northwest. Since I knew them I asked them to email letters of recommendation to their chief pilots. I had one outside letter of recommendation but I did not end up using it. Also they did not assign a class date that day. It has been just under a week and I'm still waiting for an official date but they said to expect August. I assume this is to fully clear my...

  4. May 14, 2021 Just like everything on the prep. Two questions hand written. 30 questions on iPad. Mostly IFR stuff and flight planning. HR questions. Brief an approach plate. They use jepp charts so read up. Very laid back and good atmosphere. Be sure to dress nice and be early. Chat with the people you’re interviewing with, they may be your sim partner. Don’t over think... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. May 14, 2021 Contacted via email to set up a phone screen. Phone screen confirmed details on my resume as well as questions answered on the application. I was told this would be for the Q400 only at this time and if I was ok with this. (yes) Then I was given a choice of two days for an in person interview. Interview day went as described in this gouge. 8am show. Seven candidates. Short presentation on the company and the Q400 by HR person and the base chief pilot. We then were given a 30 question ipad... Continue reading this interview experience

  6. Feb 23, 2021 The presentation, test, and 1v2 interview went pretty much as others have described. During the iPad quiz there are a few questions on flight planning that require you to scroll down to an approach plate, chart, and other sources of info. It didn’t realize this additional info was available so I just took my best guess. ( I glanced around after submitting mine and saw someone else scrolling through...). I went to the proctor in the hallway, fessed up to my ignorance and asked to... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Feb 22, 2021 Interview started 8am. First was to answer 2 questions about Horizon in a piece of paper. Follow by a presentation from HR. Then you are handed an Ipad with 30 IFR questions. Pretty simple and nothing tricky. After that one by one HR and Technical questions. The gouge is very helpful. Pretty... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. Feb 19, 2021 There were a couple of days at the end of 2020 that Horizon opened a small window for people to apply. I applied during that time and didn't hear back from them until the early part of 2021. I received a phone call from Deja inviting me to come to Seattle and interview with them. She and Julia were excited and animated for me to come up and help create some anticipation for the event. Prior to my arrival they were very helpful and clear and what they expected of me, what they wanted me to... Continue reading this interview experience
