“good - and good match”
“if you have a consumer choice high deductible it's barely coverage. you get paid more if you elect no insurance”
“Love it and the best job could ever go to a lot of benefits and really lovable staff really recommend to work and everything ”
The leave aspect with this company needs a little work. I wasn't working for the company for 6 months due to furlough and came back on (called back) in April 2021. in February my Wife gave birth but because I didn't have a full years worth of hours back with the company, I didn't qualify for the companies FMLA roughly 60% of regular pay. All is ok though because that allowed me to go through Washington State's Family leave which was 90% of my regular pay. weird that it actually benefited me to NOT qualify. Oh and since my wife also works for Alaska Airlines, (Different union and department) we would've had to SHARE the FMLA. So we got to utilize a full 12 weeks off together.
Very good benefits. Good 401k with matching. Can purchase employee stocks at reduced price once a year.
Love it there was very adaptable the worst it was probably hours
Excellent 401k match and employee stock purchasing program.
health insurance is higher than usual
Flight benefits were great perk
It was ba sadb experience thing
New employees (cust svc agent) are not allowed to take any PTO until after 52 weeks. Not even one day! Zero sick time allowed (for ID agents) or else you get cited for an occurrence, and at risk for termination.
Great flight benefits. Health benefits aren't great.
During the interview, training, and OJT process, the co. touts all the “generous PTO” benefits given to employees. It’s only when you go to request 1 or 2 days off, that they hem and haw, avoiding eye contact while they inform you that, ahem, you have to work 52 weeks straight before being “allowed” to qualify for a single day off. But, “You can trade away your shift!” to get a day off. Good luck with that. No senior employees will trade with the “new hires”, leaving you with no shift trades, or having to pay cash under the table (i.e. venmo, paypal) to bribe someone to take your shift.
