I worked at Horizon Hobby full-time (More than a year)
Family atmosphere, competitive pay, Room for advancement. Great management, excellent work place for a hobbyist, travel ti R/C events such as Axial fest! Very supportive and caring environment. Seriously who wouldn't want to work here. ONE MORE THING "On site cafeteria" with great food.
No cons, if you show up and are willing to work hard you literally won't have any problems.
Advice to Management
Keep on doing what you are doing. I know the transition is hard but if anyone can make it happen it's the people you have in place right now.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Horizon Hobby (Champaign, IL) in August 2012.
Not very difficult. There were two interviews. One with the hiring manager and one with the group. A skills based test was also given. That was the hardest part of the process.
