I worked at Alaska Airlines

Pros

Free travel, great job while I was in school, down to earth employees, often times it was fun to work.

Cons

The positions I was in was unionized so the higher seniority people could sometimes be lazy and you had to make up for the slack. All while they get paid a lot more than you for doing the same job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No personal feel to any management feedback or job reviews.

    I have been working at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    Decent benefits, including flights (when not full)

    Cons

    Middle management is squeezed to perform more and more with less while upper management enjoys secretive "perks" and front line (union) are paid well through contracted wages and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work toward increased transparency, honesty, and internal succession planning. Train, mentor, and promote from the inside to gain trust and loyalty. Performance Based Pay (formerly profit sharing) should be the same percentage of wages or salary company-wide and not higher for upper management.

    Frustrating and Unfulfilling

    I worked at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    - The individuals are nice enough to work with.
    - They are flexible with their hours and personal time off.

    Cons

    - If felt like, I imagine, working in a cave. The building was run down and had all sorts of issues. Even the light fixtures and sinks wouldn't work properly.
    - Management would give little respect to those working under them.
    - Many people were not qualified to work in their positions.
    - No "perks" and terrible benefits.
    - Little to no recognition given.
    - One person would be expected to do the work of an entire team. Meaning positions were not filled and people were over worked.
