    I have been working at Alaska Airlines part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Started at reservations 30+ years ago, now I'm working at airport. First of all, I truly could not have asked for a more caring crew and company.

    When my families home burnt down, my Alaska Airlines family got together with donations of money, food, clothing, and Christmas presents for my 3 boys. I don't think I'll ever leave.

    A lot of work from home opportunities available.

    Opportunity to travel

    Cons

    Can't be a smoker
    Some may see this as a con, I do not, but some may.

    It will take a long long time before you have seniority if you're in the Phoenix area.

    Aircraft Maintenance Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alaska Airlines (San Francisco, CA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through the website, and heard back from them by the end of the week. After the phone call interview with the recruiter, I was set up with an in-person interview consisting of a 3 person panel interview. The letter of intent, or offer letter, was sent to me within a couple days. They're really on their A game there! Such a fast process that it was painless.
