I worked at SkyWest Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

One of the better regionals but things are on the decline in this competitive enviroment. Decent pay and choice of domiciles. One of the more stable airlines. Never have furloughed.

Cons

Reserve pilots are used and abused. As regional airline subject to schedules and whipsawing by majors.

Advice to Management

Employees are a valuable asset. Do not alienate strictly for bottom line. Obviously profits are important but don't do long term damage for slight gain to bottom line. Make sure you add the human touch with your accounting.

    I worked at SkyWest Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome work environment with outstanding leadership, excellent training program with competent instructors, good benefits/retirement package, better flight benefits than most competitors

    Cons

    Low pay, less than desirable work schedule (split shifts are common), part-time employees may only get 12-15 hrs per week

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the pay! Even as a station supervisor, I could not make enough to support my family. Otherwise, would LOVE to still be employed with you!
