    Approves of CEO

    I worked at SkyWest Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is the best regional airline that I know of. They try to treat you well. It is a regional airline you could be at for your entire career.

    Cons

    It is still a regional airline. You will never be treated as well or make as much money as a major carrier. It is the nature of this career but, I prefer to be home more.
