    I have been working at Air Wisconsin Airlines full-time

    Pros

    It's small enough that it truly feels like a family environment, but big enough to take care of the company and it's people.

    Cons

    The fact that it's contract work, and could be gone from Columbia, SC in 5 years, like Norfolk, VA

    Small enough Airline to feel like you are just not another number. This company performs well in a volatile industry.

    Cons

    Front line workers and lower levels of management could use pay increases. A bit heavy at the time I was there with Sr. Level management.

    I worked at Air Wisconsin Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Overtime is unlimited due to lack of employees and nobody wanting to work. If you don’t want to do the job just stall and turn it over to first shift. You get 40 smoke breaks a night and can sleep on the job.

    Cons

    The company will try to screw you left, right, up, down and from behind. They will take “miscellaneous” deductions without telling you. You will have to file payroll discrepancies every other week because they can’t get your pay right. If you sign there contract they will take every last dime from you if you break it. Also the bonuses are taxed so out of the 15,000 you only get 9,000 if your lucky. I would not recommend anyone to this company. If I could give this review negative stars I would.
