Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) says"Working here solely for the Flight benefits(which Aren’t that great). Upper and middle management are horrible. I understand seniority is a big thing in the airline industry, but most of these coworkers are awful to work with. Communication is non existent. Pay is absolutely pathetic. You can make more at McDonald’s. The level of responsibility put on us is ridiculous compared to how much they pay you. Very political when it comes to advancing within the company. Cons: Terrible pay, terrible environment"
Inflight Development (Former Employee) says"They will literally watch your every move, even to the point of knowing if you have a UTI because they will know how many times you have gone to the bathroom. Cons: Everything else"
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) says"I worked with them for 10 months— they treat you like a number, have a high turnover, they do not care about the individual/employee personally whatsoever. Cons: Treated like a robot"
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) says"I have been with SkyWest for almost 2yrs. A company so distant from their frontline employees!"
Avionics / Aircraft Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says"no recomiendo este sitio a nadie para trabajar por mal ambiente, racismo, falta consideracion con el empleado. No ascensos y deshonestos"
Crew administration Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Company is horrible. Everyone talks behind someone behind their back. Pay is horrible compared to other airlines. Benefits suck as you have to pay for everything. Travel benefits are horrible as we have to fight for the benefits to become active. Cons: you pay for everything, always mandatory overtime."
Cross Utilized Agent (Former Employee) says"Management is HORRIBLE! Very two faced, special treatment to certain employees. Hours are horrible. You do not get to use the benefits of flying very often. Just all around horriable."
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) says"Skywest doesn’t care about their employees. Their turnover rate is unbelievably high for a reason. Had to call out of work to go to the ER for having stroke symptoms, I was physically incapacitated. Paralyzed on my right side, blind and deaf on right side and speech impaired from it. They fired me for this call out. Provided doctors notes and everything. They said it was no exception. So just a heads up, if you suffer from paralysis, stroke, heart attack, or anything life threatening or physically damaging, they don’t consider that excusable and will fire you. Welcome to the skywest “family”"
Cross Utilized Agent (Former Employee) says"In recent times they would hire unskilled personnel to be supervisors and general manager. If you were not of the right job persuasion they would not listen to you if you had complaints and they would ignore that complaint or cover it up. It’s a very unfair place to work if you don’t play their game. Never ever complain or make any statements that caused an investigation or you will have an unpleasant uncomfortable stay in your employment at SKYWEST."
Cross Utilized Agent (Former Employee) says"Pueblo is a tiny airport and yet SkyWest is always hiring. Raise any red flags? You work 2 hours or less per shift and can have up to three shifts a day so enjoy that unpaid commute to and from the airport for your $15. Minimum wage, no benfits, haphazard training and endless computer classes. Management is a joke - latest guy was gone for 6 plus months for death in the family and"
CREW SUPPORT (Former Employee) says"This place pays poor. They have a system that protects them. They allow their Management to Bully employees. They don't give breaks, they lie to crew members, they falsify numbers to make crew legal to fly when they are not. They lie to their partners. They ask you to lie. When I wouldn't lie or go along with the crowd, I was blamed for being Hostile. HAHA if you ask those that know me they say this is not true. They retaliate, and they blame you if you are not in their click Cons: Unless you are single you don't get to fly much. Poor pay. Managers Bullies"
Cross Trained Agent (Former Employee) says"1) Planes are always late/broke down Cons: Low pay, nobody cares about their jobs/no effective management"
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) says"Company is just a sorority teen age high school competition always being threatened about loosing their own jobs to new more talented people. Not a good company at all to work for Cons: everything"
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) says"Training manager is a liar and formulates ideas about employees that she gossips about to other faculty. Should handle work disputes more professionally. Would not recommend working at this job."
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) says"I was released a week before graduation because I got nervous on a drill when I calmed down a second later teacher said too late you were unsuccessful after I gave up my job, left my family for 3 weeks and took the drastic cut in pay. They need to work with people more like the larger Airlines. Complete waste of 3 weeks they asked me to return to start over and I would never go back who wants to repeat the entire class they should have said you can come back and pick up where you left off. Insensitive people, low pay, expect the world for the chump change and stress they give you. No Thank you ! I would never recommend them to a soul. Cons: Low Pay 1350 month, stressful, on call no schedule"
