    Pros

    Flexibility of schedule w/ high seniority. Raises every year. They want you to pass Annual Training-- they are making it less intimidating, however, more thorough. The management in Detroit.

    Cons

    Contract and Pay does not compete w/ other airlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    .... bring us in the office for the hard work we do sometimes... not just for something wrong.

    Pros

    Good platform to earn experience in all phases of aircraft maintenance.

    Great working enviroment in the maintenance department in ATL.

    High skill labor makes a great team on the line.

    Cons

    going thru difficult time with chapter 11. It will require more sacrifice but it can be done.

    some employees are quick to blame the situation of the company to management but all of us are in this together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to your front line personnel, they can make or brake this company. See what troubles them and help them get thru, as they surely will help this company move forward.

    Pros

    Flight benefits even with poor seniority.
    It's a job.

    Cons

    Management only cares about the company, not about people at all.
    No communication. Everything choice here is a secret until the decision is already made.
    Pay sucks. No raises and they are trying to cut our pay even more due to bankruptcy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone who gives a crap about something than their own pocket, then resign.
