    I worked at Alaska Airlines part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits for all staff including full and part time. Don't take the flight benefits as the only reason to work here. The are space available and standby so there is always a possibility of being stranded and forced to buy a full fare ticket on another carrier.

    Cons

    There are really no cons but the make you fill in this are. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

    Pros

    Such a great company and they are getting ready to do big things. I will reapply for sure!!!

    Cons

    Cons are having to wait a long time for the station that you want. After graduation you are pretty much on your own as far as finding a crash pad, flights are hard to get which mean your pay is very low.
