Featured Review

Current Employee - A&P Mechanic

I have been working at SkyWest Airlines full-time for less than a year

Pros

The parts and resource availability is outstanding. I feel confident that I can always receive and answer to a question. They are dedicated to ensuring the aircraft are safe to fly. The flight... benefits are great. Corporate is good about answering questions about benefits and employment. You get to be exposed to all systems of the aircraft which is cool. I get excited to go to work every night.

Cons

Very small hanger for the workload, it gets a bit interesting towing the aircraft around. Aging equipment. Hold more training classes.

Advice to Management

One on one initial training could be improved. The trainers should be more in harmony with procedures and not bombard new mechanics with different methods of doing one task. Allow overtime... opportunities during probation period.
