Poor management, very low pay
Pilot in Command (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – April 20, 2017
Management is out of state, with very little communication and support. Pay is very low compared to the industry, no pay scale, no yearly raise, even to keep up with inflation, Pilots that have been here for 10+ years make the same or less than pilots who were just hired. Company negotiates a different "deal" for everyone, there is no standard or baseline pay. You are not rewarded/compensated for doing extra work, thus no incentive to go above and beyond for the customer. Very high turnover with all the pilots at all the bases. You fly quite a bit, so it is hard to enjoy the on-call nature of the job. They employ numerous full time "contract pilots" who make $150+ more a day than committed full time employees.
This could very easily be a very high level 135 company that everyone wants to work at if they just simply tweaked a few things.
Week on week off schedule, on call from home.
Management is very poor with very little communication, Pay very low for industry, no pay scale, no yearly raises, yearly training is done on your time off, training pay is very low.
