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

    Pros

    Benefits and SOME of your coworkers

    Cons

    This airline is horrible. Skywest is too cheap to even get cabin cleaners. Flight Attendants have to clean the planes like slaves. Their pay sucks. Their airplanes are little and dirty . CREW SUPPORT IS WORSE THAN THE company itself. This company needs a major major makeover. They pride themselves for being the #1 regional airline, in reality SkyWest is a joke. Im honestly surprised that they have been around so long but then again, I'm not because I am sure they have a lot of money saved from not paying their employees well. They have a high turnover rate with Flight Attendants because this is a comical airline. If you're reading this, please save your time and apply elsewhere. Try to go mainline. SKYWEST WILL RUIN YOUR DREAM OF WHAT YOU THOUGHT BEING A FLIGHT ATTENDANT WOULD BE. Good luck everyone,

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Get cabin cleaners for your hardworking underpaid flight attendants.

    I worked at SkyWest Airlines full-time

    Pros

    Flight Benefits are the best if that is important to you. It was not for me, bu what was the ability to have seniority quicker than some of the other airlines.

    Cons

    The pay is some of the lowest. I did love my job, I only left because my vision for flying is much larger.
