I worked at Horizon Hobby full-time (More than 3 years)
great coworkers -- I enjoyed going to work because of the people with whom I worked. The pay was fair... not a ton, but fair. I got consistent raises each year upon annual reviews, and the benefits were good.
job security in the marketing department was a little fishy. While I never personally felt like my position was at risk, as the company grew, there were waves of layoffs. It created an unfortunate deteriorating effect on the general morale of the place. There was plenty of lip service concerning the importance of employees, and then suddenly marketing was outsourced. A sign of the times perhaps, but that sure does nothing for those on the ground.
Advice to Management
honesty (even though it seems very plausible you know nothing either)
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Horizon Hobby (Champaign, IL) in May 2015.
Three turns in one day, pretty heavy duty. Three guys in charge of Manufacturing, Control system design and Electronics, the interview was by phone and each took at least half an hour. My major was in Control and Dynamics so the control part took over an hour, topics about PID controller design, non-linear controller were involved.
