Ready to soar to new heights with a career in aviation?

OK, maybe they’re not exactly as glamorous as Dylan McDermott’s gig as a fictional pilot, but these Alaska Airlines jobs let you work from home full time as a reservations sales agent.

The jobs pay $12.33 an hour and offer the standard benefits, as well as a generous employee travel program that lets you enjoy unlimited, free standby flights.

You must live within 100 miles of the company’s call center in Boise, Idaho, where you’ll need to go for training and occasional in-office work. And during training, you’ll have to pass weekly exams before you can earn your reservation agent wings.

The airline has previously sought reservation agents in Arizona.

The call center is open 24/7/365, so you’ll need the flexibility to work weekends, holidays and late nights, answering incoming calls and assisting customers.

You’ll also be part of a union, which requires initiation fees and monthly dues.

And like any good pre-flight instruction, Alaska Airlines’ post reminds you that smoking is prohibited throughout the cabin: You must be nicotine-free for the past six months — that includes nicotine patches and gum.

If this job doesn’t engage you in a flight of fancy, just check out our Jobs page on Facebook. We post new opportunities there all the time.
