    I worked at Air Transport Services Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pto package, tend yo be willing to flex on hours here and there for dr visits, lots of free time.

    Cons

    No accountability, it causes hard workers to suffer. Working holidays. Little chance for advancement. Many supervisors and managers resist company growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, get over the past snd look to the future. It's not all about how many years until your retirement.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to advance and a great place to begin an aviation maintenance career. Some solid training courses can be obtained on the company's dime.

    Cons

    Seems like management is pretty set on underpaying their employees and asking for 130% out of everyone at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Some employee appreciation would likely go a long way.

    I have been working at Air Transport Services Group

    Pros

    See below. This once proud company used to offer a good living, but is now just a shadow of its former self with no sense of direction nor any capable leadership.

    Cons

    Several thousand workers to be laid off in the next few months. Unfortunately, this airline is in its final months as a viable provider of overnight shipping. The future of the company is very unclear and there is very little information coming from management. There has been no detailed unveiling of any realistic business plan and senior management is new having come from another airline they dismantled.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with the respect and dignity they have earned as you push them out the door.

    I have been working at Air Transport Services Group

    Pros

    Small company atmosphere, good communication in times of crisis. Everybody knows everyone else. It was the type of place I wanted to retire from until it was destroyed. Most employees never leave here once they are hired, sort of like General Motors used to be. Abx is located in rural Clinton county, which means no rush hour traffic, low cost of living, and a friendly small town atmosphere.

    Cons

    We are experiencing massive downsizing due to DHL arrogance and incompetence. My low rating for career opportunities is because no one voluntarily leaves the company which would normally leave an opening for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late now.
