I worked at Air Wisconsin Airlines full-time (More than 8 years)
Great pay and benefits for a regional. Great people working here. A great history of stability in a very unstable industry, etc.
Headquarters is based away from the operation which sometimes makes things difficult with culture, etc.
Advice to Management
Keep pay standards industry leading to decrease turn over, keep hiring standards high, and hiring the very best in the regionals.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Air Wisconsin Airlines (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2015.
Well like many of people before me, I researched interview scenarios with this company along with what was to be expected so I'll lay it down for you. First, you'll arrive at the building then you go upstairs to a break room/lounge chat it up with people before its show time(ran into someone who came from Los Angeles as well and 4 former flight attendants). Then you'll move into a classroom that seats 12 applicants(there were 10 of us, by the end of the day, there will be 6 of you with possible job offers). You'll be given an overview about the company from the history to how a schedule can look and possibly vary. Later, the panel will give a presentation and share a bit about their experiences. During this time you'll be given a random question(try not to say something dumb, for ex. if they ask you, "what's your pet peeve"? don't say, "I don't like dogs" yes a female actual said that lol) Then you'll take a math test which is not difficult however, DO NOT RUSH!! Yes you only have 20 mins but it's doable, check your work and read the questions and choices carefully, there were a few curveballs so be aware. Then more talking and a cup/hat will have more random questions for you to answer and also do some public speaking of safety announcements. You'll do a group exercise I had the foreign group( American(I) Iraqi(M)Columbian(F)Jamaican(F)) Then they'll go over crew schedules, how reserve works, line holders and all the works. Once it's all completed, you'll be moved back into the room where you started. Here's the important part, the first group of names called will be the ones going home, those of you sitting there will be walking away with potential CJOs. You'll do your drug test, and fingerprints that day so if all goes well, you should end by 3, plenty of time to catch your flight home. They don't BS you, they give you the Good, Bad and Ugly. Be confident, present yourself well ,and be flexible; you should be alright.
