    Cons

    The hours worked.......64 hour work weeks.... :-(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE HIRE HIRE........We need help in this department........Call volume will spike once Air Tran comes on board......just like RR did! Also we add waaaayyyyyyyyyyyy too many leadership positions. We have regional director of this, assistant associate co-vice director of this. What's next Vice-President of Honey Roasted Peanuts?........TOOOOOO many chiefs and not enough Inidians.....Did not used to be this way

    Pros

    Great place to work if you love travelling and working with travelers. Great benefits including health care and flight benefits. Employee focused.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime at airport positions. Shift work. Low pay over all. Planes full so that cuts into flight benefits. 90 day probationary period seems excessive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look internally for talent. Consider ways to develop internal candidates. Reign in the Unions. Class it up. Keep AirTrans Business Class product.
