    I have been working at SkyWest Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong communication between management and employees. Flight and additional benefits. Family important and concerned about work life balance. Their mission statement is clear.

    Cons

    None that I can think of now, but it’s making me type twenty words so I will just type until I hit the required amount I guess

    Advice to Management

    Continue to remain active with communication and development of employees. Allow for movement and diversity of job duties.

    I have been working at SkyWest Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flight benefits
    That crews get to stay together for the length of the duty assignment

    Cons

    Pay
    Probation lasts a year and is hard both financially as well as the way the company treats reserves

    Advice to Management

    Pay and treat your employees better (especially your flight attendants who are treated very differently then pilots) if you want to keep them
    Better health care
    Take better care of your new employees both in training and while they are on probation

    I have been working at SkyWest Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've had one of the best experiences of my life working for this airline. The people here are amazing.

    Cons

    The training is extremely difficult but if you put your mind to it you most certainly can get through it.

    The pay is the best for a regional airline, but compared to mainline it's definitely not the greatest.
