    Aircraft Dispatcher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Horizon Air (Portland, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and about a week later I was called in for an interview. They flew me to PDX a few days later and shuttled me to the air ops building. The interview was about 45 min and I was asked questions from the HR rep, the director of SOC and two lead dispatchers. 4 people total. It was very easy and the group was very friendly. It was about 50 min. After they shuttled me back to the airport.
