    Good colleagues. Good salary (for Greek standards). The provided facilities are sufficient, and management is on the whole open for suggestions to improve. Well maintained fleet with no corners being cut on safety issues. Good traveling benefits.

    Sometimes it is hard to cut through the red tape and some organisational skills are lacking at some moments.

    I worked at Aegean Air full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good woring environment in what concerns colleagues
    benefits to travel free with ohet carriers

    Cons

    poor management.they hire people who have a relative relationship with some managers and those are who get in higher rank positions. manager in reservations department,where i belonged,is completely anaware of what an airline is...they have to change the way they treat personnel as they have already a bad reputation in hiring and this will lead them in the disaster.
    fixed term contracts
    work always under pressure and fear
    they use the common tactic of having ears and eyes everywhere ready to report you

    Advice to Management

    first of all know what you are managing.secondly be closer to the staff,they work for you not for someone else.they are not competitors.

    I worked at Aegean Air (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fair salaries/shopping vouchers/extra money when you have to stay to another base/ excellent training

    Cons

    Too much pressure during high season/ Too many working hours during high season/no extra money when a flight is delayed

    Advice to Management

    Excellent job. The only thing that is annoying is the staff who do not do their job properly. Compliance measures must be taken in order to avoid dissatisfied passengers.

    Friendly colleagues, good bonuses, flexible rosters, legal days off and good company management.

    Cons

    Hard to commute to Athens Airport if you live in the city. Some late turnaround flights can get really tiring.

    Need to organise better the balance between the duties and the off days. Also they need to offer more free tickets for family and friends

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Aegean Air (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job itself is quite exciting (although you do not get to stay in any other country)

    Cons

    You must know people to get a promotion.
    The company is over the top costumer-oriented, to the point that they risk safety.
    Does not pay well.
    Treats Flight Attendants as waitresses and/or models.
    Fires most of the personel after a few months or years, so they cannot get all the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Some day an event will occur that your flight attentands will not have the experience or the training to handle. I hope there will be no victims.
    Start appreciate "older" crews!
