    Fun company culture in Indy! Take advantage of the flight benefits!!

    Human Resources (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsWorking in the Indy HQ was amazing! Great people and environment. It's a great combination of laid back and fun. The flight benefits are second to none. It's such a privilege! I can't go on enough about it... Employees have traveled to every continent and can leave town every weekend! It's standby, so it's not perfect.... But when seats are open, the opportunities are endless. The annual holiday party is really fancy and fun! HQ is adding more employee events all the time!

    ConsPilot drama and low pay. If you take advantage of the flight benefits, it makes the pay seem better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter pay wouldn't hurt... And increase PTO!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good starting point in aviation.

    Licensed Mechanic (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsA good stepping stone into aviation with a major airline. Mechanics salaries for a regional airline are better than most.

    ConsHealth insurance is complete crap. Takes years to build up any kind of good pay scale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to all of the bases instead of just the certain ones,

    Flying high in the air,

    Flight Attendant (Current Employee) Greensboro, NC

    ConsCan't use your benefits due to lack of seats available for standby passengers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pays the bills

    Current Employee (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsNothing really comes to mind. A place to help pay the bills I guess. Certainly not a career.

    ConsTerribly under paid. No communication from the leadership. No room to grow or opportunities for advancement. No incentives. Itsy, bitsy, teenie weenie salary increases.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Screwed over after a decade

    ProsGreat coworker. They are like family

    ConsThey play favorites. You are nothing but a number. Management sucks!!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember tha you were once a pee on too ... try and treat your employees like you would like to be treated

    Terrible Company, Terrible Culture

    Pilot (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsNewer aircraft (except the 145's)
    Good crewmembers to work with

    ConsUnable to staff; seniority will mean nothing with reassignment
    Pay below industry standard for crewmembers and corporate employees alike
    Work rules less than industry standard
    Inept middle management
    Inept senior management
    Union is useless

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet the contract done so we can recruit and stop blaming the pilots for everything that is wrong with this place. Accept responsibility for the awful dump this place has become.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Do not look to this company for employment

    Flight Attendant (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsSome flight attendants were nice to work with

    ConsToo many cons to mention....totally not a people oriented company...will find any reason to fire you....too many cliques and chiefs....not enough Indians....trainers and management do not care about the fight attendant....only themselves.....company name should be..... Selfish Airlines...!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people the way you would like treated.....if that's possible for you!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hard to live off the pay. Flying is rarely boring but being away from home a lot gets old.

    Flight Attendant (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsLove the free flights and ability to have lots of time off. Flying is rarely boring and the long days "fly" by. You don't have a boss looking over your shoulder. When you're off from work, you rarely need to think about it. No work brought home.

    ConsThe pay is pretty close to minimum wage when you factor in how much time you spend at work but not accumulating flight hours. You could be scheduled to be home by 4pm but because of delays/cancellations you return home at 10pm with no extra pay to show for it. That hurts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Wonderful Experience so far!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat travel benefits, crew scheduling really tries to work with you.

    ConsThe training should of been longer.
