    Pros

    You get to fly free anywhere in the world on 3 of the top major airlines. Some of the airlines have a small fee but not anything to worry about. Employees are very friendly. It's a great starting point.

    Cons

    I think the company should cover a portion of the annual flight benefits.

    Advice to Management

    They know what need m needs to be done and are currently working on it.

  3. There have been some morale issues due to company wide financial issues but the company been good to me over-all.

    Pros

    Most people are fair and hard working.
    There are some very intelligent people that you get interact with.
    Good flight benefits.
    They still provide health insurance, although it's not the best.

    Cons

    *Health insurance could be cheaper.
    *Long hours are expected and if you are salaried you don't get paid over-time.
    *It's still a corporation and financial issues seem to direct the needs of the company over employee needs.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to allow office staff the ability to work from home a couple days a week. This would help us to save money on gas and commuting expenses and it would help the environment.

    Pros

    Good place to get your feet wet in airline industry. Good training. Easy to relocate from one base to another. Very hard to get fired because of the union. Learned a lot, made a lot of friends. ERJ and CRJ fleet.

    Cons

    Losing planes to lease return with no replacements planned. Closing bases to consolidate and adjust for loss of aircraft. Company was bought out a few years ago, but maintenance works under 2 separate contracts, with different benefits (pay, vacation, holidays) and no new contract in sight. Supervision has no problem messing up your hours on the clock or sick bank time, you better stay on top of it. Pay is middle-of-the-road.

    Advice to Management

    Show us a contract to let all maintenance work at all bases for the same pay. Lots of people want to cross over to be closer to home or move somewhere new, but can't take the pay cut to start seniority over. Get a plan for new planes, tired of listening to all the blowing smoke. Try hiring people close to your bases instead of recruiting in Denver or Detroit or Alabama to work in Shreveport or Houston they might actually stay.

    Airline so travel benefits of course!

    Cons

    We have those that are really working hard...and then those that...get away from not. Is this fair?

    Pros

    Operational position meaning that nothing is the same everyday. People who work there are great. Offered travel privileges and given cockpit jump seat access.

    Cons

    Company is still in negotiations to attain a JCBA. CRJ and ERJ aircraft dispatchers work separate which can create some animosity.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bite off more than you can chew when trying to obtain more CPA's with mainline partners. Boost employee moral by getting a joint contract and raising compensation for employees.

    Pros

    if hourly u get a raise every year on the anniversary of your hire date, benefits pckg not bad, flight privelages

    Cons

    to many unprofessional people placed in leadership positions with no formal management/supervisory experience or training , allot of unprofessional interaction company wide

    Advice to Management

    start hiring people who have some experience / training/professionalism about themselves . just because a person has worked for your company for years does not mean they are qualified for a managerial /supervisory position.
