Pros

Good company with upgrade opportunities, good people, good equipment, good schedules, good work rules.

Cons

TDY positions are not bid for, but assigned by crew support according to who they like/dislike

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the quality of our crew rooms, worst crew rooms I've seen in the industry. Most FBO's have better crew rooms than we do.

    Pros

    SkyWest has an adaptable and flexible culture, with people who are willing to jump in and work hard and tackle problems head on. They are very good at recognizing future leaders and rewarding good work with promotions when available. When something doesn't work or doesn't make sense, management is very good at listening to the problem and working to solve it. Employees can feel that their best interests are being looked after.

    Cons

    As part of the airline industry, there are difficulties that come from that, such as relatively poor wages, interacting with snooty and disagreeable passengers on a daily basis, and the general diseased state of the airline industry negatively affecting morale. Having to abide by the rules and regulations of our mainline partners can get tedious, as does trying to make any changes, since they not only have to work through our management but the management of United and Delta as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue working toward expanding our capacity purchase agreements with other airlines, especially better ones who seem to have a clearer picture of where they are headed. Bring back the Double Down program in order to encourage all employees to figure out ways to save costs and improve our operations.

    Pros

    Stability within the industry and a long term management team in place.

    Cons

    Time away from home. Average compensation. Below average time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More elections within the 401k plan. Allow highly compensated employees to have a 401k plan apart from other employees
