Pros

Flight benefits are great and getting better. Good Medical/Dental. Fair pay with longevity.

Cons

Some middle management tries to manage through fear and intimidation. Decisions are made without enough consultation with the people who do and know the job. They want to bust the union

Advice to Management

Listen to workers. Learn the job you are managing before making decisions about changes.

    Pros

    Great benefits and co-workers. Used to have a great company culture.

    Cons

    The culture has changed now that the company keeps going through re-org after re-org. The company is becoming less productive because people are fearing for their jobs. Lots of negativity and a lack of trust in mgmt

    Advice to Management

    Don't just think short term. We posted one of the best profits in the industry, don't make everything seem so "peachy" if you keep letting more and more people go. Tell the truth so people can plan ahead.

    I have been working at Alaska Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flying benefits after 30 days of hiring date helps travel fanatics feed their travel bug. Also they have quarterly and annual bonuses that are very nice when you qualify for them. There's also a awesome feature in some of their unions that allow you to transfer departments within the same union. Exp. I was in the call center and without an interview or drug test, I hopped into a CSA position when I qualified.

    Cons

    You'll definitely be asked to work 24/7 when you first start. Also the union dues are a little much if you are trying to live off of only the one paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Either when union contracts are open for negotiations, lower union dues or up wages.
