      Pros

      - Flight Benefits on SWA + Other Airlines After 6 months - 9.3% 401k match + Profit Sharing during good years (Which was every year before COVID) - Great Health Insurance, but kinda pricey for the 14.53 year 1 CSA pay. -Generally fun work environment with generally good co-workers. - Company Values are really something that most live by there.

      Cons

      - Management can be hit or miss with communication. - Year 1-3 Pay SUCKS. - Job can be VERY stressful during bad WX, maintenance. - You are the punching bag of any bad thing that happens.
