I was second to last to be brought into the HR and approach plate in-person section, and it was a lot shorter than I expected. Perhaps that was because it had already been a long day for the interviewers. HR questions were very standard.  HR representative then left and I was with a base chief pilot who showed me an approach plate (KHLN ILS Z 27), and a sheet about the aircraft (cruise altitude, speed, etc), and a METAR/TAF for the arrival. He explained there would be no tricks and then left the room for about three minutes to let me prepare. When he returned I was very surprised I was not asked to actually brief the approach, he simply asked me basic questions about how I would transition from cruise onto the approach. How far out would you descend? Use the rule of 3 and then the given groundspeed. He likes if you can avoid using a calculator, and it's pretty simple math so you should be able to do that. How would you... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  2. 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...

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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...

  6. 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

  7. Mar 10, 2020 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.... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Mar 03, 2020 Very straight forward 30 question iPad written test. Basic IFR and aerodynamic stuff. Easy going interview with an emphasis on Metars and Jepps. No trick... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. 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

  10. 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
