Nath,

A bunch of airlines are still hiring (including Horizon), just keep trying in keep in mind that hundereds of applicants apply for every 1 opening. If you don't make it on with Horizon, try the other airlines. There are a bunch of listings online through the individual airline sites or through the job boards like FlightAttendantJobSearch(dot)com.

Good luck!

I really really want to be a flight attendant so badly. But all of the airlines are not hiring for flight attendant no more.

Go to Alaskaair.com, go to Careers, then click on either Alaska or Horizon.

I just applied on Saturday. Has anyone heard anything recently? i've never applied to them before, but i was told to expect about 3 weeks to pass before you hear anything, although they can contact you at any time! Although sooner would be a lot less stressful!!

Thanks C.H. They do not pay for my flight or hotel, which of course will set me back around six hundred bucks. I am very confident that I will do well in the interview, with my background in the hospitality industry I am a perfect fit for this type of career,and know I will love this type of work. Im keeping my fingers crossed for this one. How cool to be based out of Seattle or Portland my two favorite cities. Good Luck C.H, I hope you get a call for an interview.

Hey C.H. Im getting my bags packed for Seattle, I am getting very excited about this career field. Have you been doing any research on these so called Cattle Call interviews. I hear a ton of people show up and get denied quite fast through this panel interview process. If you have any pointers or advice that would be fantastic.
I hope you get a call soon. Maybe try to give Horizon headquarters a phone call on Monday to see how the hiring process is going. Good Luck

I went through the interview process today in Seattle. I made it to the end and was told to expect a call within the week. My best friend has worked for Horizon for 3 1/2 years and is still on reserve. I live in PDX but was told we would all probably be based out of SEA. Good luck all!

They contacted me by phone at 10:00 am on Tuesday for a phone interview (screening?) and after I passed that, they asked me to be in Seattle at 9:30 am on Wednesday! It was an intense day as far as I was concerned. You need to be really confident, and professional. What I've read on here so far seems pretty accurate. Someone from my group yesterday got their job offer today! I am so excited for her. I haven't heard yet. Good luck!

Has anyone completed the background check, fingerprinting and drug testing yet? How long did it take? I'm going in Friday and wonder how much time to plan on being there.

Good luck to all of you coming on with Horizon Air, hopefully you enjoy it! I would like to give you some more information, as I'm a current flight attendant with Horizon.

The bid periods are five weeks, unlike most airlines, and therefore you are paid based on a minimum guarantee each month of 82hrs for the five week period at a starting rate of 19.00/hr. That ends up boiling down to 16 hours of pay per week! so every other friday you are paid two-thirds of your monthly gaurantee of 32 hours of pay. When I started we made slightly more, and my typical paycheck as a oregon resident was 436.00 every two weeks and I lived at home with the parents.

You should also take into account that Horizon will always give you the minimum days off each month of 12 (for five weeks) a reserve flight attendant will typically always work five days on call, and then two days off, however one weekend will be a full consecutive four days off, and some reserve lines contain six day reserve blocks. Reserve is typically up to 3.5 years right now

Overnights are mostly small cities. You should be okay traveling often to places such as Yakima, WA, Pasco, Eureka, CA, Reno, NV...etc. A good overnight at Horizon would be 14hrs at the crowne plaza at the san francisco airport (that's as good as it gets)Keep in mind you will recieve a per diem rate of 1.75 per hour while you are away from your base to help pay for expenses incurred.

Horizon is transitioning to a Q400 fleet (which is a large turbo prop aircraft) horizon very shortly will no longer fly jet airplanes.

Inflight management at Horizon is terrible. They hire uneducated leaders, some of the supervisors have been around for a long time and are very bitter that they never left horizon in their early days for mainline. They will intimidate you, and harass you a lot in the begining about every little thing so be prepared.

good luck guys, training is a lot of fun, and a lot of FAs at horizon are a goodtime

Hello, did Horizon only end up hiring from the Northwest region? I wonder if they will continue interviewing in January!!

I interviewed with them about 3.5 years ago (flew in from the Eastern Time Zone) and I noticed that they only hired from the NW (but, I was given an invite for the proverbial cattle call)....so far, I have not even received that offer. (a real shame to make generalizations like that too (i.e. only hire from the NW)---I am a free spirit and I have retired early and I am in love with Portland and Seattle--but, I want a job before I move out there)! :(...PDX rocks---awesome microwbreweries and coffee shops---super cool city with free transportation downtown and killer public transportation from the PDX to the city.

I have been in Public Education now for 32 years and I would love to retire then become a flight attendant for your airlines. I already have a passport and I will turn 57 years on Jan. 2, 2011. I am in good health and I am 5'7" and weight 190 lbs. I have shoulder length red hair and blue/green eyes. Please send me an email all about applying with you and where you take the classes and the cost. Thank you for your help and cooperation.

Sincerely,
Debra Dean

Crossroads in Lacey, Washington

Hi everyone...I have a question for anyone willing to help me out. I have wanted to be a flight attendant my entire life. After deciding to raise my kids I have decided that maybe this is the time for me to consider such a change. I applied for Horizon November 17th, was called for the group interview on December 1st. Unfortunately, I got cold feet and left after the orientation portion of the interview. I haven't heard anyone say that they LOVE working as a FA. I'm looking for something concrete to help me make thd decision to apply again and go through with the entire interview. The training for had me concerned because they indicated not everyone is successful at the end of the four weeks. Is the training and tests really that difficult that 20% don't make it?

Has anyone that was hired in December for FA received any information further about training in Portland. I have gone through all of my pre employment background check, but have not received any information about training since the Seattle Interview. Thanks and see all of you for FA training soon.

How long did it take for you to recieve notice following your background check. It has been nearly 4 weeks since I completed my drug screen and fingerprinting and still no word from Horizon.. Wondering how long the process takes and when do you get confirmation that yes you will be attending class Jan 31st? Thanks ever so much for your reply.

I wasn't told that I would get any kind of confirmation. I figure that no news is good news lol. As far as I understood, next step is a package, and I think it comes via FedEx. The wait is killing me! Take care. There may be someone you can call at QX.

I received an e-mail from Horizon that said:Thank you for your interest in the Flight Attendant position at Horizon Air.

We have received a tremendous amount of response to this position and are still in the process of reviewing resumes. For this reason we do not have the ability to answer any questions by phone.

"We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to consider all candidates during our extensive search. Someone from our Recruitment Department will be in touch with you soon either by phone or by email.
I am so happy...!!!
