    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

    After a few years of "putting in your time" to gain seniority, your schedule can be quite flexible.

    Cons

    The pay is quite low, which is standard for regional airlines. The company isn't willing to work with flight attendants who want to take a personal leave of absence. You can apply but it is rarely approved.

    Advice to Management

    Consider allowing personal leave of absence for employees rather than letting good people quit.

    Pros

    You get to fly around the world! Work is fun and if you have a bad day you get to leave it at the door and never carry it home with you, new day new passengers!

    Cons

    Very low pay for the industry. Reserve is on call 12 hours a day. Until you hold a line it's rough.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us a better rate for the work we put in

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

    Pros

    Culture, stable, diversified, many bases.

    Cons

    They did not tell me that there was a 2yr pilot seat lock and double occupancy rooms in training.

    Advice to Management

    They say they take care of their people but the hotel is marginal at best. No breakfast, double occupancy, hot water issues, shuttle issues, clean your room once a week, poor exercise equipment, cramped, etc. They work during Christmas!

    Pros

    Simply the best regional airline to work for. Culture is warm and inviting open to letting ppl identity shine . Flexible work schedule . Travel benefits AWESOME!

    Cons

    Every month having to bid for the upcoming month is very stressful once the schedule comes out then your stressing to switch days or trips with your fellow co workers it's another job in itself.
