    Pros

    Great benefits. Flexible work schedules. Fun job. Great group of employees.

    Cons

    Employee's not always held accountable. San Francisco cost-of-living is very high. Employee attendance can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Automate the attendance points systems to take the middle man and excuses out of the system.

    Pros

    Meeting and talking to people from all walks of life. Hearing the difference experiences from passengers and colleagues.

    Cons

    They don't do overseas trips

    Advice to Management

    I believe that they should leave the. Confines of their off once in a while and take a role of a flight attendant for several legs in one day

    Pros

    The culture at SkyWest Airlines is fantastic. I love coming to work with my team and interacting with the people I work with. Even on days that last a lot longer than scheduled, I have a great time.

    I believe that the leaders here want to take care of us as employees and are always looking for ways to making the company stronger.

    Being as SkyWest, I've also had a lot of opportunities to grow, take on new responsibilities and learn new things. Having that progress and opportunity is one reason that I am always happy to go to work in the morning. It's also nice that they tend to promote from within because it makes me feel like my efforts to grow are recognized.

    Cons

    There is always a lot of change. It can be hard to keep up and be willing to try new things.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to invest in the employees. This could be improved benefits, more leadership opportunities or recognition. When this isn't possible, be willing to communicate and talk about what's going on.

    Pros

    SkyWest has always been a good atmosphere. Smae drawbacks as any ramp job, but with job security and realistic wages.

    Cons

    Getting priced out of the market by bottom-feeder competitors with no benefits.

    Pros

    Good benefits (Health, 401k, profit sharing) including flight benefits. Great people to work with, including the managers who go out of their way to make sure we have what we need to get the work done.

    Cons

    Flight benefits are nice, but it seems to be getting harder to get places. Other than that, though, a great place to work.
