    Pros

    Love the job. Co workers are great. Decent benefits Great support from payroll and insurance departments.

    Cons

    Pay scale needs to be increased across the board. Time on reserve way too long for a regional carrier. Air craft are starting to show their age with no upgrades on the horizon. Company slow to make announcements about the future.

    I worked at Air Wisconsin Airlines for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flight Benefits Fun work Fun job

    Cons

    They are the redheaded step child of the industry. You get flight benefits with American Airlines, but your standby priority is very low which means your chances of actually getting a seat on a plane are low. Very poor and absent management. Company is losing contracts often. Wouldn't be surprised if they last another 2 years...

      Pros

      Travel Benefits, Excellent Base management

      Cons

      Low Pay, Horrible Job security

      Advice to Management

      Decide whether your company going to continue flying or not. The company is short pilots because they are not telling employees what they plan to do in order to keep the airline running. they are in serious danger of shutting down. they claim that they are ok but all employees don't see a solution and they don't have one. no job security.

      I have been working at Air Wisconsin Airlines full-time

      Pros

      Cannot think of any positives about this organization. It was a better run organization under prior senior leadership.

      Cons

      Management employees at corporate headquarters are way out of touch with employee base. Many leaders are promoted on longevity versus skill set so many dysfunctional management employees. No transparency and no communication with employees. Many employees are jumping ship due to loss of contracts, no announcement about a future for the organization, and open union contracts. Morale is doom and gloom and Sr. Leadership...

      Advice to Management

      Nothing matters to current leaders due to lack of transparency and communication. Lots of senior leaders have already left or are planning to leave and the state the organization is now it will be even harder to recruit top talent and there is not too much top talent left at this organization.
