  • 401K Plan  (17 comments)

    “6% matching 401k taken out of your pay check and you will not be fully vested until 5 years.”

  • Employee Discount  (13 comments)

    “Cheesy discounts, compare them to a major airline, their discounts don't really mean much”

  • Health Insurance  (9 comments)

    “They keep increasing premiums every year. They will try anything at all cost to save "cost." It's not bad but can be better. Go to a...”

    Flights. Excellent. The medical, life, AD&D, etc are also very good.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Ramp Service Agent in Anchorage, Alaska

    The best part is free space available travel on Alaska Airlines. Coupled with a fairly flexible schedule using trades, get-a-ways can be numerous throughout the year. Worst part is the pay. A mile down the road at a non-union cargo facility, the pay is 4 dollars higher per hour for the same exact job. Plus interline/ID90 travel is available there. Next door at another PAX airline, pay is $2 higher, and year round flights benefits are offered for 4.5 months of seasonal work.

    They give you flight benefits, 401k, and health insurance. However, if you get injured on the job, don't expect them to help you out. They exist solely as a "for-profit" company. You will not be fully vested in your 401k plan until 5 full years of service, most other major airlines give you it after the first or second year. It is best to work somewhere else, as this industry is volatile, reputation counts, work ethic does too. These are not what they value. The workers here who have some seniority here started out here and never worked at any other place. They will ruin your career, don't work here. Your performance evaluation based on 6 months of employment will be at what cost will you suck up to the leads and management and how much you value your dignity and reputation. They have a bad reputation in the aviation industry.

    Health insurance has a bare bones PPO option, and the HMO is expensive compared with other companies.
