    Pros

    Travel Benefits (when you can get on a plane), many days off, Almost every day is something different. meeting people from around the world

    Cons

    Company WON'T back flight attendants. You could be hit repeatedly with a baseball bat in front of witnesses. If the passenger said they didn't do anything, company would take passenger side. Unlike major airlines that back their flight attendants in situations of assault, or violation of regulations and file charges, Company will say flight attendant didn't follow company procedures, or apologize to diffuse situation.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of middle management. The volume of lies and deception, and overall blocking information to upper management are a BIG contributing factor to the downfall of what was once a great company. Don't punish the entire flight attendant group and treat them like children because a few people don't follow policies. Address it with those individuals. Most of us are adult and expect to be treated as such.

    Hire experience or from within in management not brand new or un experienced. Improve relationship with employee including pilots and improve pay and mess of a division you call crew sked

    Pros

    The people I worked with and for we're really nice. Pace of work/projects okay, good technology and not overwhelming load. Nice bene's flying standby on multiple carriers.

    Cons

    Being a contract carrier in the airline business their pay model is a bit lower than other industries or firms. Pilots union has had big beef with them over pay scales.

    Advice to Management

    None that I can comment on.

    Pros

    Flight benefits- I guess, being able to use a computer.

    Cons

    Work environment - employee moral, disparity in pay depending on your color. Nepotism is an all time high. If you drink and sleep around - you'll last forever

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your SOC. treat your pilots with respect. Find schedulers that respect flight crew.

    Pros

    Lots of base options. Paid training. Employee from the first day so benefits kick in right after training. Short reserve time overall.

    Cons

    Morale is really low right now. Struggling business model due to pilot shortage and their lack of contract. Pay pretty low compared to other similar airlines.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about culture change - do it. You have to respect your everyday employees before they'll respect you. Need better employee retention.

    Pros

    Once you get hired, you sure to get a better schedule, due to the high turnover- most white people stick together, and basically find ways to steal sugar and cream and hide from their work

    Cons

    African Americans are still treated like second class citizens- Bryan Bedford says he's a Christian- I question his judgment.

    Advice to Management

    You should pay people according to their skill level not their race

    Pros

    Training is paid for and hotel is provided. Get off reserve relatively fast.

    Cons

    The training materials are dated and needs to be updated. The instructors aside from a couple which you can tell have been doing it for a while need to be better trained and informed if they are to train incoming flight attendants. Also management looks for every option to send you home as all are replaceable instead of investing in great candidates and working to improve possible weaknesses. Also you can't really move up

    Advice to Management

    Hire better inflight trainers, stop looking for every reason to send people home or to fire them as many give up their livelihoods for this and also work with them because I have seen great people who actually fit the mold of flight attendant get terminated and those who don't quite fit the mold are allowed to stay which is wrong and even customers have complained about them.

    Pros

    flight benefits are great, nice schedule if you don't mind working 12 hr days, coworkers are the coolest, very laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    It's a dead in job, no where to move within the company. Management is very unprofessional. Communication between different departments is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional
