You know how to hire great people, you just don't know how to keep them!

Customer Service Agent (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsBefore working for Alaska Air I thought that they were the "Cadiallac" of Airlines. After working there not so much.

ConsFlights were oversold, delayed or mechanicals and Supervisors were never around to support the front line employees the supervisors went into hiding. Alaska Air should eliminate the unions as they were only good for protecting poor preforming employees. Overtime was never distributed evenly amoung all employees. If you were a new hire and you didn't volunteer every 48 hours to work overtime you were automatically given mandatory overtime.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe hiring process was like the reality shows on television today. You have to pass rounds of interviews to go to the next round of interviewing. My day started at 800 and ended finally at 1800 that evening. I thought I was going to be hired for a job paying $100K plus, instead of $10.15 per hour. You know how to hire great people, you just don't know how to keep them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
