    Pros

    Great benefits, best pay in the industry after you complete the first few years of service, company culture supports using your own ideas in daily operations.

    Cons

    A lot of employees making WAY too much money and doing very little. The union can be a huge roadblock for management to hold employees accountable. During irregular operations, you are EXPECTED to stay VERY late or come to work on your days off. Some mid and upper managers have been promoted WAY beyond their talents and should not be in the positions of power they are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay extra attention to your station leaders and how they are holding thier employees accountable for customer service issues, daily operations, baggage handling etc. There is some deception going on in certain stations and it should be looked at very closely.
