    I have been working at Horizon Air full-time

    Pros

    Extremely flexible hours, work benefits, and above average health benefits

    Cons

    Very low pay for work while workload continues to increase with empty promises of positive change. Exceptionally high turnover rate that keeps increasing. Lack of honest communication and common for blatant lies to occur from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate honestly to your workers and make real positive changes to company. Pay your workers more so they are are not stuck with lousy workforce from lower to management.

    Pros

    Pros about this company is that you are a part of Alaska Air Group so you do have great insurance, stock options and travel benefits.

    Cons

    Horizon is the regional for Alaska so you do more flights a day, up to 6, for less pay than an Alaska flight attendant.

    Pros

    Great size company, everyone has a voice! It's nice to be more than just an employee ID. Flight benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    A lot of veteran employees mean upward movement is more difficult than a larger company. Not fully merged with Alaska and sometimes that can cause issues.

    Pros

    Not much good I could say, except some of the other employees you work with are great.

    Cons

    The trainers are alwful they pick and choose who they like and if you are not on the list they make up things to get rid of you. If you do not go they make sure you do.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your Infight trainers and start over

    Pros

    Great travel benefits, good insurance

    Cons

    Dishonesty, Low pay ($19,000) first year, fully takes advantage of employees. Even employees who have been here for 13-15 years are jumping ship, leaving for other carriers.

    Advice to Management

    Step it up, big time!
