I have been working at Pinnacle Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Days of that are not offered in corporate world - sometimes on reserve, I wasnt used. Major and only pro - I got to fly an airplane, which is what I wanted to do.

Cons

People, management, salaries, junior manning, unorganized...mostly everything at the time. I hear they are however, cleaning up their act.

    I worked at Pinnacle Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The job paid "okay" for Memphis and the amount of work that I did. I actually had free time to learn some new skills on the job and help other people who needed it.

    Cons

    This airline was terrible, especially after 2008. Upper and middle management was a joke. There were a lot of office politics, unfairness, and general mistreatment of employees. I could see that some of the entry-level and lower level employees really getting screwed. Layoffs happened frequently. Pilots were treated poorly, but they kinda brought it on themselves because of their greedy, robot-machine union. I feel more sympathy for some of the ground workers and dispatchers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an education. Learn how to type. Learn how to spell properly in your emails. Learn how to treat people properly. Don't think that yelling at people is an effective way to get them to work harder. Maybe find another profession.

    Pros

    Being a flight attendant is a fun job and working with a fun crew is great.

    Cons

    Pinnacle is shady about paying their employees and will do anything not to pay you. They will over work you, so you need your union by your side at all times.

    Get Mesaba back!
