Morgan in Puyallup, Washington said: I did this interview last Monday. Instead of the airline thing we had to list things we found in common. After two cuts we got to do interviews by our selfs in front of three other people. Here they asked you why you wanted it and other personal questions. I got the job, and start training January 7!!!!

Did they tell you right after the interview? Or call you?

Thank you everyone for your information, I went to the group interview and made it to the one on one interview wed April 6th, they said it could take a couple weeks to receive a call, but really hoping I receive a call soon! I think the longer it takes for them to call means the smaller my chance gets. I'm just praying!

Shannon in Portland, Oregon said: We have our final tomorrow :-) The training for Horizon is always in Portland. They pay for our hotel. We started out with 29 people and have lost 4 so far. It is not easy, but chances of making it are good if you are willing to put the time and effort into studying. We have an exam almost every day, on which we have to have at least 90%. You can fail up to 2 tests, but you must pass the retake. You cannot fail a third test, the final, or the oral exam (there are 13 public announcements that you must memorize verbatim befor arriving to ground school). Horizon does pay you minimum wage during ground school training.
There are open interviews in Portland and Seattle (maybe other places, too - I'm not sure though). If you want to do this, I think you should. It is a fun experience.
Good Luck!

What are the 13 public announcements?

I applied to Horizon as well, and I replied when they sent me more questions to ask, though I didn't set up an interview. Are they supposed to call us, or should we call them?

I meant you should of applied on or by 7/11, not 5/11 sorry guys!, and I think its fine you gave them an exact date or time, that's what they were asking for so I'm sure they will call around then, and I wouldn't call, I'm sure they get flooded with calls, they will call. I'm nervous about the phone interview, what do you guys think they will ask?

No problem! They asked customer service questions.
1. Give an example of a time when you went above and beyond for a customer.
2. Give an example of a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer, how you overcame it and how you kept your composure.
3. Give an example of a time that your schedule was completely thrown off and how you adjusted/handled it.

Hope that helps - good luck!

I will be heading down to Portland for the group interview on the 21st for Horizon. Is there anyone that can prepare me for questions that the recruiters will be asking or what they're specifically looking for? My children are out on their own now, which allows my schedule to be wide open, but are they looking for the "fresh, young face" in their mid twenties? Also, if I have neutral-color highlights in my hair, is that acceptable, according to Horizon? Do you have to be a size "2" as well? Also, I was a surpervisor in a restaurant (back in the day) but most of my work experience is in the medical field...is that going to go against me? My patients that I took care of is "Customer Service" on STEROIDS though! I just wonder if the recruiters will see it that way. Hope to get some responses...thank you:)

Have about 4-5 customer service experiences ready to tell because you tell them alot. Age is no problem, I am way, way over 20's and not near a size 2 and got hired for upcoming class. Listen carefully to instructions and be open to anything.

I applied 7/11, got the email asking additional questions on 7/15, and they asked when they should call, which I told them, and they never did. Gosh am I disappointed, I must have been lost in the process because the group interview is today. I thought I was a shoo-in because I worked for Horizon for two years previously and had a good record with them. Guess they were overwhelmed with applications like all the other airlines and I got lost in the deluge. Good luck to all of you. It is a good company.

The more I think about the salary, the more I am completely perplexed as to how people can make work. $17,000-$19,000 per year seems almost impossible and my family is definitely worried. Any insight?

You do not do this job for the money. One can't be motivated to do this job for that reason! People who do this (long term)do it because they love it---i.e. often they eek out a living via crash pads,being super frugal, etc. or by taking another part-time job or they are "comfortable" some other way---i.e. they have a "cushion", are supported by someone else, or are retired with a pension. If one is worried about money, one shouldn't take this job (in my opinion). :) :)

Can someone please tell me if you are chosen, do they fly you to training? I know they pay for training, but do they also fly you there? Had my phone interview last nite and went very well, but I may not be able to afford the trip there.

My interview went well. I'm in the same boat, don't no if I can afford the trip. If you are picked to attend training, they should pay for your trip to Portland.

Congratulations on your first interview. No, I believe you need to get to Portland on your own dime. Maybe that has changed.

What are they telling you regarding when the next class will be?

Good luck!

Check Horizons website often because they will have the job posting for flight attendants posted for only a few days due to the high volume of applicants..hope that helps

Horizon will fly you to training from an airport Horizon serves, and I dont know but maybe even one that Alaska Airlines fly out of.
