    Pros

    Challenging, vibrant work environment. Lots of super smart people who are very helpful when you have questions. Great benefits. Ethical senior management from my experience.

    Cons

    There are always quirky personalities any work place. But really I can think of no other cons. I enjoyed my time there immensely.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating with employees - doing the right thing really does make a huge difference. Even when times are hard, or especially when they are.

    Pros

    Overall good place to work. People are friendly and seem satisfied to work here. The company is not struggling.

    Decent benefits - 401k is 100% match up to 3% and then 50% match 2% after that.
    Healthcare - Low deductible plan or HDHP plan with HSA. They'll match a certain amount that you contribute into your health savings account to east the high deductible.
    Vacation is 2 weeks starting, 3 during 2-5 years, and 4 weeks at 6+ years.
    Standby tickets on Alaska Air and other Alaska based airlines but you must get prior approval a few weeks in advance.
    Tuition reimbursement of 75% including fees if the classes pertain to any job at NAC whatsoever.
    Other Misc benefits - $200 yr for gym membership, AT&T discount, free dome access, 75% discount shipping with fedex from anchorage intl. facility only.

    Cons

    Downsides, well NAC has been owned by parent company Saltchuck for at least 5 years or so but ever since they also acquired Aloha Air Cargo and Strat Air, the people at NAC feel like they've been put on the back burner and also the company is extremely top heavy now. NAC management now manages much of the other companies too and most of NACs hard work and resources (airplanes) now go to them.

    Pay is slightly below industry standard.

    Also, the 737-200 fleet is getting very very old and the employees don't have confidence that management has a plan to replace them, especially for the Alaska flying.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget your roots, this is an Alaska based company! Do we really need more management around here? Employees are starting to loose faith.

    I worked at Northern Air Cargo full-time

    Pros

    The employees really care about their jobs.

    Cons

    The company is part of a larger organization called Saltchuk, they say they are family oriented, but they expect you to work long hours, making it hard to take vacation. No work/ life balance. The company is top heavy, they need to have more worker bees and less management. The salaries are poor at best and their HR department is non-responsive, always feels like you are inconveniencing them when asking questions. The IT and Accounting departments feel that the way to solve problems is by hiring more people instead of addressing issues.

    Advice to Management

    Get some friendly people in HR who actually care about the employees and not just worried about collecting a paycheck. Restructure IT and Acctg with good leadership not poor management, draconian micromanagement is out, empower your employees, this is 2017. If you are going to say that family is first, stand behind your beliefs. Downsizing management and hiring more employees would allow you to achieve goals of a good work life balance.
