One of the most enjoyable jobs I've ever had, although it had some major drawbacks

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

Pros

I enjoyed the challenges faced and the things I learned while I worked there. It will always be a memorable experience. It's hard to argue with flight benefits!

Cons

If it weren't for being furloughed, I would have left soon anyway. After my supervisor tried to write me up for not clocking out before leaving (with a workplace injury) and getting every night, weekend, and holiday shift there was, I was done dealing with management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Picking shifts by seniority was a terrible technique for motivating newer employees to stay. It would have taken at least a few years to have high enough seniority that I actually could have gotten a shift that was worth keeping. Every night, weekend, and holiday gets old really fast.

    Pros

    flight benefits, shift trading, people you work with

    Cons

    cost cutting makes the work environment really unsafe, pay cuts, station management is in chaos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in hiring station leaders please have some better qualifications, experience is not enough for them to be put on those positions
