No opinion of CEO

I worked at SkyWest Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flight benefits to travel globally and the oppurtunity to meet many new cool people from all around the world! Offers some health benefits, they fork out about half.

Cons

Many of the Mid-Lower levels of management are often those lacking management training and often on a power trip. Don't get me wrong I know a few great station managers, but I know many aweful ones. The pay is horrible after just under for years I was only making 10.50/hr(+1.75/hr) for supervisor shifts that I worked. Benefits are increasingly getting worse, and cost of them are going up! It's more like a trap, you get addicted to the freedom and ability to hop on an airplane at will, you hate the job but you refuse to walk away from the flights.

Advice to Management

Pull your heads out of your ass, when I started with SkyWest it was a great company - for the first year, two if you're lucky. After that it all went downhill, and I only see it half way down the hill, your brakes are already burnt up, time to treat your employees just a little bit better.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    pretty decent pay if you consider 10.25 per hour good.
    The other employees were so amazing I honestly miss working there only because I miss the people.

    Cons

    The amount or work required for the amount of money being made not worth it at all.
    Full time must work 55+ hours every week
    System to clock in everyday was horrible (come to work on time only to be counted as late because the system didn't work properly and they did not care)
    weather conditions were horrible! working outside in -10 degree weather for hours on end and kiosk with broken heaters made it even worse.
    Frost bite damage (i haven't worked there in over a year now and i still don't have feeling in my toes its damaged for life)

    Advice to Management

    You can advance to management if you work there for 40 years!
