I worked at SkyWest full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Awesome work environment with outstanding leadership, excellent training program with competent instructors, good benefits/retirement package, better flight benefits than most competitors

Cons

Low pay, less than desirable work schedule (split shifts are common), part-time employees may only get 12-15 hrs per week

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bump up the pay! Even as a station supervisor, I could not make enough to support my family. Otherwise, would LOVE to still be employed with you!

    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.

    I have been working at SkyWest

    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.
