    I worked at Piedmont Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great, fair company to work for. Good work environment. Exceptional safe work environment.

    Cons

    Unrealistic On time performance is ALWAYS expected, but not always possible. Expected to perform excellently with minimal staff and little or no support from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Company tells employees that the will be members of a cross-utilized team, when in reality less that half of the employees can do ALL that is required of them. Counter and gate agents deserve more money and better support from the management team. The abuse you receive from the customers is ridicules.

    I worked at Piedmont Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free flight benefits. Company promotes from within when possible. Those are about the only 2 pro's for the company though.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else. The company is good for an 18-year old just out of high school. They focus far too much on hiring and firing. Although they promote from within, they promote based on who you know and upper management in places became a total joke because of it. They don't pay nearly what you deserve of what they expect from you (on all levels).

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing all the micro-managing and treat your employees like they matter and aren't just a number. Hire people who are actually capable of the position they're promoted to

    I worked at Piedmont Airlines full-time

    Pros

    Was a great airline and place to work back in the day. American bought Us Air and in turn they are doing very well. y

    Cons

    Bring on reserve. Tough if you do not live in the city near your base. Takes awhile to build up your seniority but well worth it when you finally do.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and work with them as a team. Check on employees at times to see how work environment is going and have an open door policy.

    Pros

    flight benefits if you can get on the plane.

    Cons

    Upper management has absolutely no concern for the employees it is clear!! Low wages extreme weather 100 degree heat etc. and unsafe work conditions but they say SAFETY FIRST! High school age supervisors who talk down to you when we clearly have been in workforce longer. ALWAYS UNDERSTAFFED so the hard workers get punished with doubled workload!

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying you care about your employees and start showing it!!!!!! Improve working conditions not two people working two planes, or not giving relief for employees in extreme weather condition such as high heat temps.other than a pitiful cup of water. You claim to be about safety first what you seem to looking for is a potential lawsuit when someone gets hurt out there which has happened many times.
