I have been working at Atlantic Southeast Airlines full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The supervisors and management have a very good "open door" policy. They are always ready and willing to discuss your areas of weakness, as well as recognize your strenths. They do this with the gosl in mind of helping you become the best possible employee. This benefits both the company and the employee.

Cons

It can be very stressful at times and tempers can flare when that happens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management needs to take greater steps to to relax the atmosphete and increase employee morale.

    Pros

    I enjoyed my experience at ASA C-check facility in Macon,GA. The management at that facility knew what they were doing and they treated the employees with respect. The environment was also a great starting place in the company for me as a new mechanic. I learned more there than where I am currently stationed at Atlanta Headquarters. I felt like the Macon out station was more managerially structured for positive advancement. Unfortunately the ATL management thought otherwise and now ASA is suffering because there are not enough mechanics with book knowledge, commonsense knowledge, and hands-on experience with the aircraft fleet.

    Cons

    As a mechanic at ASA I "currently" would not recommend ASA as a starting point for a new mechanic. We currently have lost more than 50 mechanics in less than 3 months. There are several reasons why but the main reason is managements tyrannical attitude of "we have to do more with less", "just get it done",or "if you don't like how we do things here there's the door". This type of management is not good for a beginning mechanic. It is a hire and fire type of environment with no one willing to train and teach you all the necessary tools to do your job. When one is hired in ATL you will be on the floor for a short period of time (a few months if that) and then you will literally be thrown to the wolves. Almost every mechanic that I know even the ones that have been here for many years are trying to find work outside of this company. The ATL Headquarters has no management structure at all. I and other mechanics have been asked by upper management at several meetings "how to operate this company" because [they] don't know what to do. I'm not getting paid their salary nor is it my responsibility to run the company. I am only responsible for maintaining aircraft not a business. I may sound disgruntled...well I am because I went from an organized structure of ASA to a unorganized structure of ASA that has nothing together at all. It is really sad that ASA has a moronic system of management for its headquarters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brad and management (from the lead mechanics to the COO) I want to tell you all this as along as management treat the mechanics like slaves or dogs you will lose so many people you will "never ever" be able to replace them. All I'm asking is that you all stop disrespecting people and pay us more or lower the top out period from 15 years to 7or 8 years. We know you all have money more than $700 million. Stop trying to use ExpressJet as an excuse for not having money dirty moves like that make the mechanics HATE you. We did not need a union for the mechanics but, because you all would not give pay increases or lower the top out years you lost and will continue to lose. If you don't give in soon your contract with Delta will be broken due to low goals. A company full of majority new mechanics is a big mistake something is bound to go wrong. Ask yourselves When will it happen? Why do you think so many are leaving? If you can by a $100 + million dollar company in cash you have money. And another thing the Trax program and parts department are totally in a mess. This inhibits progress when an aircraft needs to leave or be fixed. Being that ATL is ASA headquarters there is no excuse why we should not have every part that goes on the aircraft. If you [buy] the aircraft you should be willing to [have] all the parts needed for it to be fixed at all times PERIOD! No excuses. I could say more but I don't think I have enough room. But, please listen and take this as constructive criticism. You all can do better.
