Pros

Interacting with passengers, the fantastic co workers and the opportunity to work at any of the stations. I also appreciated the non rev travel opportunities. Although there are not that many destinations - they are fantastic for travel on your days off.

I thought the training and customer service skills aquired were beneficial. The information I learned in this training was beneficial for future jobs.

Cons

The variable schedules were difficult to adjust to- I really felt that it was almost pure luck with what kind of shift you'd receive. (Luckily, they permit shift switching and picking up extra shifts). I didn't really have any bad experiences with this company though.

Advice to Management

To distinguish yourself from other airlines, I belive that you need to empower your employees to make a difference when a passenger is having a bad day (when flights are cancelled etc). Alot of the time, it felt like hands were tied.

    Pros

    amazing crews in LAX!! They are the best!!

    Cons

    We are not compensated for our time compared to other successful carriers like Southwest.

    Advice to Management

    Make it fair that we get more pay for being asking us to be the best in the industry.

    Pros

    Small but distinguished airline, no international travel except Mexico

    Cons

    The service cutbacks, passengers expect in-flight entertainment. The passengers flying Alaska expect a lot more but the airline is run more like a shuttle service.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the inflight service, cleaner planes
