    I have been working at SkyWest Airlines full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The parts and resource availability is outstanding. I feel confident that I can always receive and answer to a question. They are dedicated to ensuring the aircraft are safe to fly. The flight benefits are great. Corporate is good about answering questions about benefits and employment. You get to be exposed to all systems of the aircraft which is cool. I get excited to go to work every night.

    Cons

    Very small hanger for the workload, it gets a bit interesting towing the aircraft around. Aging equipment. Hold more training classes.

    I worked at SkyWest Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is the best regional airline that I know of. They try to treat you well. It is a regional airline you could be at for your entire career.

    Cons

    It is still a regional airline. You will never be treated as well or make as much money as a major carrier. It is the nature of this career but, I prefer to be home more.
