They Really Did Know How To Fly

Flight Attendant (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

Pros1) The aircrafts were fun to be on. I loved the DC9's/727's the best.
2) The people were great, from ticket counter to gate/baggage handlers. You were family with all.
3) Great environment to be in.
4) Picking flights were easy.

Cons1) Advertising...used to be a lot in print and TV commercials. Went from that to bleh.
2) Hard to get to A-level pay grade
3) Trying to transfer domiciles was difficult when being junior and the domicile station was senior.
4) Pay should be not in line with competition, but should be in line with having the best F/A's in the industry.
5) Difficult to shake the image of "northworst" when strikes occurred.

Advice to Senior ManagementAll the perks/benefits/golden parachute that top management have....shower some of that on the people that make the company what it is...you can have all the authority but if you don't care about your people they will make sure everyone else knows. Respect runs both ways.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
