    A huge learning experience throughout the two months that I've interned here. I can now say that I have real accounting experience. All of the departments are very professional and nice, especially the Finance department. The flight benefits are even better!

    Cons

    There were some down times where I didn't have any work to do.

    Pros

    Overall employee appreciation, close knit organization, employment compensation, great flight benefits and overall moral!!

    Cons

    The only con that I can even think of is constant and fast growth, but that is good for the company.

    Pros

    I have been working at Mesa Air for about 8 months, and what I value the most is how much I have learned. Everyone has shown to be patient and knowledgeable about this industry. They give a lot of people like myself a chance to work in an industry we are passionate about and gain new experience and knowledge every day. Also, free flights aren't bad either! :)

    Cons

    It is definitely a quick pace busy job. There is always more work but in actuality I think that is less of a con and moreso a motivator.

    Pros

    The schedules were flexable. The work environment is fun and the travel was fantastic! I would reccomend this job for anyone who loves adventure!

    Cons

    The hours are there if you want them.. There was nothing bad about my experience, my reason for leaving was strictly personal, i would work for them again in an instant.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work you do for employees, it really shows. The people that i worked with was what made this job!

    Pros

    Having been been with the company for over 11 years, It continues to be a great place to work. I enjoy using our flight benefits and visiting numerous places around the world with my family. Job growth is here and the best way to do this is through department switching which Mesa Airlines gladly supports.

    Cons

    The cons at Mesa are mainly from the quantity of work, there is no end. You'll continuosly be on your toes but there is a team atmosphere that'll support you. especially from the veterns that know the ins and outs of the airline industry.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that they continue to get to know your workers, which they CEO has been doing activly with monthly conference calls and actually working on the floor with his employees.

    Pros

    Can obtain seniority faster than larger airlines, family oriented company, opportunities for growth/promotion, pay bonuses/incentives available

    Cons

    Very disorganized management, lower pay compared to most airlines, non-paid training, PHX base is usually not available for a while until you build seniority

    Advice to Management

    Get more organized, especially when it comes to the training class (my training class was really behind because instructors let students ask unlimited questions that took up a lot of time) offer more pay,

    Pros

    Some of the people at crew scheduling are pretty nice. Some of them try to be reasonable human beings.

    Cons

    Overall company does not care about the well-being of the flight attendants. Very low pay, no recognition for a job well done, abusive punitive administration.

    Advice to Management

    Try to act more like Southwest
