    Good starting job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHired straight out of A&P school, excellent flight benefits, decent medical benefits

    ConsUnionized, good deal of mandatory overtime, doesn't pay quite enough to live on without supplemental income.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay better mandatory overtime, or better yet staff with enough people to make mandatory overtime a much less common occurrence.

    Impressed so far

    A&P Mechanic (Current Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    ProsLOTS of Value and pride here. Work together attitude, Framework and guidelines kind of company which is nice because the industry demands SO much. Most of the employees are very intelligent and more than willing to share knowledge and lend a hand when needed.

    ConsPay could be higher(who hasnt said that). It Seems like communication between some parts of the company are lacking. Senority can make or break you at any point in any situation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ok company to work for

    Adequate company to work for

    Scheduler (Current Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    ProsFor the most part , a good group of co-workers

    ConsLong hours & Low pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually not advice for mgmnt, but, for the current pilot who is putting down the scheduling dept! I can guarantee that you would not put up with being talked to the way alot of crewmembers talk to the schedulers! We aren't out to ruin your life! We don't care that much about your life! We are trying to do our job, which is to cover the flights in order to avoid cancels & delays! And, if the crewmembers would do their jobs, which is to fly their schedule than we wouldnt
    have to change schedules, jrm, etc....

    Was one of the best jobs I have had in aviation, but after a management change, everyone was micromanaged.

    Director (Former Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    ProsGrate benefits and pass benefits. mature workforce. Parent company, US Airways, great to work with. Pilots at PSA have the ability to move up to US Airways. American merger appears to be good for PSA.

    ConsLack of trust between management and employee groups. Penny wish, pound foolish. Dictatorial style of management. Rules and expectations change constantly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees and let your employees do their job. Get out and visit with front line employees, it is the only way you can get to know what is really going on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place to start a FA career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmall company, paid training, really good trainers, nice staff

    ConsSmall company, Schedulers can be cold, cruel and nonsensical, pay isn't on the same level as major airlines

    I like it but I wish it was better.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe TRAVEL benefits! The friends I have made. My schedule is great. I dont think that I could go back to working 5 days a week again.

    ConsThe pay is horrible if you are not in a Union. There is no room to further my career. A lot of the managers are not even around to deal with any issues that arise. Corporate events or any events rather involve only the day shift. Forget about the other shifts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds a total upgrade! And pay your people better so they will have incentive to stay.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good for starting pilots but not well run from the users perspective

    First Officer (Current Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    ProsGain -121 time and many descent co-workers.

    ConsPay is terrible for the first few years especially considering the pre-requisits for obtaining such a position as well as the responsibility. The scheduling system for the lower seniority pilots is very poor as their is nearly zero control over whether you'll be flying or sitting for long periods of time. Though on duty, planning anything around a 2-hour window (which could consume your next few hours to next 3-4 days) is completely unreliable. This scheduling inefficiency will occasionally even spill into and affect plans you may have made for your days off. 'Sorry, that's how it is'.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix scheduling and begin treating well trained, passenger-carrying pilots as such. Though many are young and some have made this their first job in the airlines -- for many this isn't their first rodeo and have much experience to offer and should be valued a bit more for said experience.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place, great people, great experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Vandalia, OH

    ProsCertain departments will allow you to gain a vast knowledge of experience. If the department is small chances are you will probably wear multiple hats. Great managers in most departments and you will know everyone in the office. Employee appreciation events. Good benefits

    ConsOutside of the unions, most positions are underpaid. Great managers in most departments and you will know everyone in the office. Some managers aren't stellar.
