Loved the work, but management was under-trained and focused on negative instead of positive training methods.

Screener (Former Employee)

ProsGreat place to help people get on a plane with less stress, and flexible hours. Good training, but anal retentive managers in some locations.

ConsPoor hiring practices for managing positions...seniority is only prerequisite for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess manipulation more cooperation...too much testing without trying to help employees really grow.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
