    Regional Airline

    Customer Service Agent (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsA great leadership team and some of the most amazing mentors will help you to shape your career with this airline.

    ConsMost airport positions require working shifts, holidays and weekends until you gain seniority. You are able to swap shifts with your co-workers once your probationary period is over.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to mentor and develop employees, providing a career path and not 'just a job'.

    Mediocre company to work for

    Ramp Manager (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsAmazing flight benefits, flying anywhere in the country is free. Flying anywhere out of the country is very inexpensive. You can assign one person to be your registered guest which gives them a huge discount as well.

    ConsThe worst part about this job, for middle-line management, is that most of the front-line workers are lazy and disrespectful.
    Usually working under-staffed, so the environment is very stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. Management sets goals that are unrealistic but necessary to ensure that the lazy front-line workers meet goals so Piedmont can remain a competitor for contracts. I was middle management, and the worst part about this job are the front-line workers. The majority are lazy and disrespectful, and frankly, an embarrassment in front of customers. They lack regard for decency and professionalism.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Customer Service

    Customer Service (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsIt was a great opportunity to get customer service experience

    ConsThe clarity for the employee's expectations and rules were not clear. Make sure you do much research on their employee handbooks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease make sure the new employees are aware of any employee rules that are not clear, along with understanding the way to keep employee's is appreciating them.

    Stepping Stone

    Flight Attendant (Current Employee)

    ProsTravel benefits. Close knit workplace. Great co workers. This is a place that you can get your start in aviation, get your foot in the door so to speak, but be ready to move on. The future is foggy and probably not worth the trouble of sticking around.

    ConsManagement is antiquated and does not realize the value of treating their employees with respect.
    These are great airplanes from a pilot stand point but they are dirty and outdated in the back for the customers. Management truly falls short of training the employees on customer service which seems absurd in an industry based on it.
    The schedules are awful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJoin us in the technological revolution. Be nice to your employees and they will be happy and provide a good service.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Future is a mystery

    Flight Attendant (Current Employee)
    New Bern, NC

    Proswork on small aircraft as only flight attendant in cabin
    great travel benefits
    very profession co-workers

    Conslow compensation and little job security
    outstation domiciles that have changed constantly over the years making it hard to settle in one location

    Advice to Senior Managementtry to provide incentive to stay, we should not be a race to the bottom. Just because some contract carriers have substandard pay does not justify asking us to be at that level. We share the same responsibilities as the major carrier flight crew

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
