I worked at Alaska Airlines

Pros

Small but distinguished airline, no international travel except Mexico

Cons

The service cutbacks, passengers expect in-flight entertainment. The passengers flying Alaska expect a lot more but the airline is run more like a shuttle service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Streamline the inflight service, cleaner planes

    Pros

    Alaska promotes a real family atmosphere, but it's more preach than practice sometimes. If you happen to work for a decent manager, you can take advantage of flexible schedules, commuter benefits and telecommuting. They offer a very generous PTO program for management. This is all at the discretion of your manager.

    Cons

    Alaska has done a lot of hiring from the outside lately. It's become a reitrement home for people from other loser airlines, and that fosters bad feelings from employees trying to get promoted. Alaska also seems to think that anyone in a position of leadership is automatically a good employee, which is not the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring qualified people from within the company. They exist and know the culture and dynamic of the company better than anyone from the outside.

    Pros

    There is a ton of oppurtunity for growth/ upward mobility, if you choose to make Alaska Airlines a career. We have awesome bonuses , share profiting, and flight benefits. If you ever want to try a new job Alaska encourges you to go for it! If you don't like it, then you have three months to return to your previous position. You also get to meet a lot of different people, depending on what department you work in. Alaska is all about promoting from within the company and they love deidicated and passionate people who really want to be here.

    Cons

    Raises can be hard to come by if you are in a management position. Contracted positions get raises automatically. Also, if you are in a contracted position you are under a union which makes the incompetent, lazy people impossible to fire. Bill Ayer, the CEO loves to send e-mails about the financial position that the company is in to scare people into thinking that they are going to lose their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Job!
