    I have been working at Horizon Air full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent wage with a professional desk job level of benefits (401k, health, dental etc.)

    Cons

    Irregular operations and the weather can make the job extremely difficult. Pay scale doesn't reward loyalty. 11 years of service gets you 18/hr.
