I have been working at SkyWest

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    The basic training in SLC is great training. Flight benefits are good if you are in a station that has multiple airline choices and if you get time off to use them.

    Cons

    No on job training. Not paid for all hours worked. Constant open verbal degrading of co-workers. Not cross utilized. New employees are assigned only to ramp and luggage and expected to work double shifts on weekends. Work too many hours to use the flight benefit. Too many on the job injuries. Too big of turnover. Have to work over 20 hours per week to cover all the shifts of the employees who quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the payscale to attract qualified, respectable employees. Require supervisors be honest and to treat all workers with respect. Invest in good qualified educated managers and supervisors.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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