    I worked at Horizon Hobby full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Horizon Hobby is full of exceptional people who genuinely want you, and the company, to succeed. Employees have the benefit of dealing with complex "big company" level challenges in a mid-market flat organization with a culture that supports them and facilitates ethical decision making. This company will go above and beyond to help employees, both at a professional and personal level.

    Cons

    Horizon Hobby, and the market it serves, have and will continue to evolve. Most roles must embrace change, a dynamic environment and the realities of a competitive marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    I advise management to continue to support valuable employees, broadly convey concise corporate goals across the organization, and maintain the company culture.

    Purchasing Agent Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Horizon Hobby (Champaign, IL).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and application via online. Received phone call from hiring manager a week later. Interview was not tough. I sent follow up email because I was told that I would be notified whether or not I would be call back for a second interview with the rest of the purchasing staff. No response from my follow up email. From various conversations with people who used to work there plus doing some research on my own, Horizon Hobby is struggling as a company. They have been letting people go and shrinking their workforce due to slow sales. My advice is HR needs to make sure that managers are properly trained on the interview process with potential candidates.
