    Current Employee - Flight Attendant in Dayton, OH
    Current Employee - Flight Attendant in Dayton, OH

    I have been working at PSA Airlines full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with passengers is pleasant during flight. Most of the pilots are excellent and pleasant to work with. Having the possibility of a flexible schedule and free travel passes are positives.

    Cons

    Company has taken a fun little job and removed most of the 'fun' parts. Management is understaffed. Pay is low, most F/As must supplement and could still qualify for govt. assistance. Notice in Pros the word possibility.... company/contract rules limit that flexibility and load factors are about 85%, making free travel difficult to get on the flight you desire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve life/work balance with more ability to drop trips and shift schedules.

    Corporate culture very poor

    Current Employee - Airline Pilot in Charlotte, NC
    Current Employee - Airline Pilot in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at PSA Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company is growing and receiving new aircraft.

    Cons

    Company not prepared for massive growth.
    Corporate culture very poor and employees are often threatened.
    Poor management.
    Pilots pay scale went from 20 years to 12 years for top of scale.
    Reduce maintenance deferrals(MEL) and fix aircraft. Aircraft are flying around without an APU.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of sick call program. If people or sick or tired, they should not be at work!
    Stop hot reserve. It serves no purpose except to cover the lack of proper scheduling.
    Stop crew scheduling from preventing the use of SAP during Phy. months.
    Do something about the bus situation at Washington national airport.

    Pros

    Nice Management, company is growing so there are many of opportunities for growth in the company, no employee has ever been let go because of cuts. Amazing flight benefits

    Cons

    Would like to see more raises based on work ethic instead of a chart

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more incentives to your employees so they will work harder and you as the employer will get more out of your employees.

    I have been working at PSA Airlines full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    the schedules most of the time aren't bad for us flight crews , having senoirity helps in your having more contrl over your flying . Fellow crew members are nice people , most Pax's are okay . okay money if no degree .

    Cons

    Just the usual cvompany problems , Management doesn't listen to their employees , some of the policies are not fair and Pax's/customers are a pain . But no job is perfect .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to listen to your employee's concerns and be willing to maybe see if the changes being suggested might work better than present policies . Give us one's a chance since we are in the A/C everyday !!

    Good starting job

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at PSA Airlines

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at PSA Airlines full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    LOTS 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.

    Cons

    Pay 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Long hours & Low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually 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.

    I worked at PSA Airlines full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Grate 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.
