    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.

    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.

    Pros

    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?

    Advice to Management

    Time to encourage management training all across the board to set good work ethics
