    I have been working at Horizon Lines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The culture is very kind, friendly and helpful.
    The work environment is professional and visually appealing.
    Executives are not seperated from hourly employees. Good team vibe.
    Great benefits. Healthcare is top notch, and 401K match is generous.

    Cons

    Merit based increases have not been given in the last 5 years.
    Bonuses have also fallen by the wayside.
    The culture in the Dallas office may have gotten too casual. Jeans can now be worn every day.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Horizon Lines.

    Interview Details

The people where very freindly and the role seemed easy. I am not sure if they down played it but the salary range was also below similair positions.
