    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Horizon Lines full-time (More than 8 years)


    Professionals who cared about the customers, the company and their co-workers. Pay was competitive. Incentive program.


    A long series of poor management decisions (China instead of new Jones Act ships for example), and assets stripped out by a slasher investment company led to the inevitable. Purchased by laughable Pasha, the company is now a circus. Customers have left in droves - and who can blame them?

    Advice to Management

    They're all gone, as well they should be. BTW, the last CEO was Steve Rubin not Sam Woodward. His name should be here too. Rate him one star.

    Easy Interview


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


    Interview process was easy, asked common HR based questions. submitted resume on line and was called by HR. I spoke to them on phone and then to hiring manager in second call. 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.
