    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

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Good flight benefits on multiple carriers. Quick seniority in some bases. Higher-ups are easy to get ahold of and are super helpful.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, year long probation. No commuting policy.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your employees as people not as a number.

    Pros

    The travel benefits are excellent but I have come to find out what really makes SkyWest stand out is the people and the culture.

    Not a dang thing to complain about. I would recommend this company to anybody and everybody. SkyWest is the best.

    Keep it up

    Pros

    You can travel for free.

    Cons

    They are a puppet company of the real airlines. They do not develop their leaders or reward them. They have money, but don't invest in their own people. Expects you to work night and day for pennies. It's a job, not a career and they know it. They have a carryon tag reward system to recognize your efforts but you aren't actually rewarded, it's a chance to be rewarded with a drawing. This is how you reward your employees on everything? I know 2 out of 75 employees that have won something over the past few years. Rediculous!

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people! Don't treat your people like they are just filling a spot until the next person moves up. Develop who you have! Pay your supervisors what they deserve. There is no leadership development like most companies have! SkyWest just expects you to know everything without training you and if you don't know sowmthing, shame on you. Communicate, develop, and reward, you will be surprised how much happy your employees will be!
