  • 401K Plan  (18 comments)

    “Limited offerings and not a user-friendly interface for employees.”

  • 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...”

    For management employees only: health benefits are okay- you can choose Kaiser Permanente or a high PPO plant with an HSA. They do a matching of 6% on 401k. Stock options which is great. PTO is 3 weeks for the first 5 years that you must accrue and about 10 paid holidays off. Worst benefit- only 2 weeks of paid parental leave. Yup. How that's legal, not sure, but if you're planning to have a family- tough to do at Alaska as a new employee.

    The medical benefits are great! The FREE travel benefits have diminished tremendously because the company pushes the promotion of their Bank of America Visa Signature credit card. The card benefits are a big deal to the passengers, but using these benefits promotes overbooking of flight seat inventory which leaves minimal possible seats available for employee flying benefits. The company's response to employees is "we are working on getting bigger planes.....?

    Standard 401k, health care on the higher side for employee contributions, no tuition reimbursement. Benefits seem to get winnowed down every year.

    Flight benefits you can't use, and very small amount of time off. Especially for new employees.

    Best benefit travel benefits & heath insurance & dental plus 401K company matches. Hours are early but once you get use to going to work in the middle of the night its all good.

    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.
