    Pros

    Working for Colgan Air earns you travel benefits that are priceless, that is about all you would have enjoyed enjoy at Colgan Air.

    Cons

    Well, this isn't a company anymore and therefore a useless review. They crashed planes and were unable to recover. What more can I say.

    travel, flight benefits and a great collection of coworkers.

    The Inflight Director Marc Cheroff was awesome but Pinnacle now Endeavor Airlines are just the worst.

    I worked at Colgan Air full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When the Company was run by the Colgans it was a great place to work and be a part of

    Cons

    When the Company was bought by another airline they brought on some people who were not there for the success of the Company but, for themselves

    Advice to Management

    Make everyone feel like they belong to something special and they will make it special for you as well.

    Pros

    Colgan Air is a standard regional airline that allows young pilot to gain experience. They offer benefits in terms of a 401k, medical, dental, and vision. Company was bought by Pinnacle holdings who also bought Mesaba airlines. We currently only fly for Delta airlines.

    Airline has filed for bankruptcy and is currently down grading captains and closing bases. They will also be some pay cuts and the return of aircraft.

    Pros

    Flying privledges were good. Some training was useful.

    Cons

    The pay absolutely sucks for the work. Sometimes, we didnt know what we were working from 1 week to the next. I may work 1 week on days and another week on nights. No one wants to really help you because they are too busy trying to make you look bad so they can move up.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay and have consistent hours
