    I worked at SkyWest Airlines (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good training. Great co-workers who supported one another. Travel benefits were fantastic. We had fantastic work parties.

    Cons

    Long hours in difficult weather and stressful circumstances. Low pay. Often worked shifts without enough staff. Management didn't address concerns, station manager let us know she couldn't change anything.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what all of your employees tell you and investigate the situations. If improvements can be made, please make them.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    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

    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

    I have been working at SkyWest Airlines part-time (More than 5 years)

    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


  6. No Complaints

    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.

  11. Not family friendly for beginners

    Current Employee - A&P Mechanic in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    4 day work week, easy interview/hire process, great training procedures for a new mechanic starting out.

    Cons

    Company is NOT family friendly. If you have young children, you will not see them because you will be stuck working weekends and midnights until you achieve "seniority". Even in special circumstances, your request will be denied for temporary relief of a horrible work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Allow freedom for your staff to change their schedules to suite their lives. If you are changing their work schedule every 3 months, it would only inconvenience someone for 3 months to change up to do extenuating circumstances.
