I worked at Horizon Hobby full-time (More than 10 years)
Horizon Hobby is the best place in the industry to actually get an education while on the job. You'll learn the best things about innovation, diversity and even work environment. If you are looking for a place to learn about marketing, sales or even product development this is the place to be. With a benefit package that is one of the best in the state. They have a great open door policy, if you don't click with one manager, there is always another that will step up to the plate. The values that were set back in the beginning when the Stevens owned Horizon are still in place to this day.
Occasionally there are toxic people that can derail you a bit. This is in EVERY corporation, and Horizon is the same in that regard. Thankfully their HR and open door policy helps with this when it does happen.
Advice to Management
Listen to your employees, learn from your employees, grow from your mistakes and let the sky be your limit.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Horizon Hobby.
Was contacted by a recruiter for a series of interviews. Was informed that the search would take a month or two. Over 6 months later - the search is still active. I learned that the position was open another year ago. As another person outlined - Horizon Hobby can take an incredibly long time to make a decision. While it is good to take time to hire the right person - just like real estate listings in the summer that show pictures of homes with snow on the ground - postings can grow stale and talented people smell trouble. If you cannot hire someone in less than 6 months - it is not a sign of a bad job market - it is a sign you cannot make a decision.
