    Pros

    Flight benefits are great if you can get the time. Many flight attendants have seconf jobs to help supplement income.

    Cons

    Too many to name. Horrible management, horrible pay..this company is just horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans and not just a number.

    Pros

    Nothing really comes to mind. A place to help pay the bills I guess. Certainly not a career.

    Cons

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Unable 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.

    Pros

    Some flight attendants were nice to work with

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat people the way you would like treated.....if that's possible for you!!

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

    Pros

    Love 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.

    Cons

    The 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.
