    Pros

    Benefits, hours, great PT job.

    Cons

    Odd Hours, which really are not that bad. Pay for the few FT positions.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. The management does a great job at addressing concerns and following up with them.

    Pros

    Meeting a lot of great and unique people out there. Team work, fast-pace work environment. Flexible schedules. Flight benefits and cruise benefits

    Cons

    Low pay. No union. Management plays favorites. No growth.

    Advice to Management

    Please dont promote people who aren't well liked. Makes the work environment less desirable to work in. Maybe help out the rampers if operations are swamped and not just WALK by or just SIT in your office..

    Pros

    It's a great foot in the door if you are pursuing a career in the airline industry. They have many opportunities for growth in the company.

    Cons

    The pay is not equal to the amount of work being done. I've met people who work hard, represent the company well and have been there for over 3 years, but has only had a 0.20 raise.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved on the ramp and get to know your employees.

    Pros

    I have really enjoyed working there. the people are great, quickly learn to taxi as well as high power runs those are always fun.

    Cons

    the work is routine but that's what you have to expect when you are doing schedule maintenance. there is some management good ole boys that should be demoted but that normal

    Advice to Management

    utilize all employees(leads supervisors 2nd shift), relax on the petty stuff. the leads should be leaders out there busting it with the others

    Pros

    Great travel benefits. Full timers tell me the health the health benefits are great as well

    Cons

    High turnover creates a stressful work environment. If Skywest values their front line employees, they have a weird of showing it. Pay cuts and mandatory work on days off

    Advice to Management

    Work on the frontline for a couple weeks

    Pros

    The overtime was always a plus.

    Cons

    Not being consistent rules for all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Your supervisors needs management training. More concerned with being friends with the employees than managing.

    Pros

    The flight benefits are great if you have time to use them and flights aren't booked heavily. The access to other airlines is good to .

    Cons

    Moral was pretty low. I found my self trapped by the idea of flight benefits. I didn't want to loose them but I wasn't able to use them either. Had a lot of opportunities once I left. Opportunity Cost can be high.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved. Give support. Accommodate schedules.
