Good benefits and great place to work
Alaska Airlines like most US airlines has great benefits, discounted tickets in over 80 airlines, buddy passes and unlimited traveling for you within the airline. One of the biggest reasons why I love this job.
Alaska offers a lot of great employee benefits, including flight benefits.
The only thing that is good about Alaska's benefits package is the travel.
Matching 401K contribution, flight benefits for immediate family and Parents.
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.
Temp Pool employees don't get benefits.
Pros - Flight Benefits; Cons - Salary is lower than market
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.....?
Best: Free Unlimited Flights, Worst: Do not pay industry standards, 2 weeks Maternity Leave, NO paternity
