Pros

The community is probably the best thing about the company. In the beginning, we weren't very unified. But after the bad apples left, we were a close family. It really is an interesting industry, and with that comes drama, but also closeness.

Cons

I was with the company for several years, and as time wore on the company demanded more with less pay (more responsibility, split shifts, mandatory shifts, less flight benefits at more expense, etc). The company also preaches no unions. It's the first thing you hear about at training and is at the top of the sidebar when you login to the employee site. Over time, it became apparent that their bottom line was no longer "family", but profits.

Advice to Management

Take the advice from Southwest - put your employees first. Happy employees = happy customers = profits.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule.. after training there is the ability to trade shifts with other people to allow for time off or to pick up more hours as needed.

    Working at SkyWest is like working with family. Co-workers are mostly supportive of each other.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than some in the sam industry.
    Not always possible to get a good schedule and because of the industry it is often necessary to work past scheduled departure time.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more aware of how hard some employees are working all the time and reward them. The larger hubs often do not have the same opportunity for company events as the smaller stations so Management needs to find a way to reward the employees in those locations differently.

    Pros

    Flight benefits, very very hard to get fired.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about you! They don't give time off even for emergencies.
    Hours change really fast. One week 38 hrs next week 12hrs. Loads of training that they require you to do at home, unpaid! Lazy, unsafe people all around you.

    They won't let you get a second job and will send you to 4 week long training without any notice states away.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, respect them! Get rid of unsafe people that don't care and are lazy.
    Better work hours per week.
