    Good(aka decent) for the young or retired, not for those in need of cash!

    Pros

    Flight benefits to travel globally and the oppurtunity to meet many new cool people from all around the world! Offers some health benefits, they fork out about half.

    Cons

    Many of the Mid-Lower levels of management are often those lacking management training and often on a power trip. Don't get me wrong I know a few great station managers, but I know many aweful ones. The pay is horrible after just under for years I was only making 10.50/hr(+1.75/hr) for supervisor shifts that I worked. Benefits are increasingly getting worse, and cost of them are going up! It's more like a trap, you get addicted to the freedom and ability to hop on an airplane at will, you hate the job but you refuse to walk away from the flights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your heads out of your ass, when I started with SkyWest it was a great company - for the first year, two if you're lucky. After that it all went downhill, and I only see it half way down the hill, your brakes are already burnt up, time to treat your employees just a little bit better.

    Pros

    Free Flights around the world

    Good pay compared to the level of experience required

    Entertaining job and not very demanding

    Fun to work at the ramp

    Cons

    Schedule changes a lot

    Working under the rain

    Not enough opportunities for professional development outside of corporate

    Dealing with upset passengers is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the company is expanding and buying other airlines, there are stations closing, and reduction in hours. A company should strengthen its people before it strengthens the brand.
