    Arik Does Not Pay their Pilots!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This airline would be good if they pay as promised even though its poorly ran.

    Cons

    Hired as Captain on CRJ 900. The company just lies to their expat pilots saying they will pay on certain dates and then it comes and goes with all kinds of excuses. Worked there 3 months and did not receive one dime of pay. The result caused us to lose our home and became homeless. The company does not care about their employees or even the passengers. This company cannot run an airline and expect pilots to work for free. Since I have been there, the pilots went on strike 3 times and still no results.

  2. 1.0
    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits if received, and a good environmental climate to work.

    Cons

    The company has no values or knowledgeable leadership and it is a very difficult place to work. The days and evenings are long and stressful due to poor leadership and the lack of needed resources. Financial support for the operation is difficult to acquire and all departments suffer, but the blame for poor airline performance is blamed on the executive staff when it all falls on the incompetent Chairman, CEO and Managing Director. Other issues are to be prepared to wait 2 to 3 months for your pay and do not expect your last checks when you resigned or is sacked. Malaria is rampant, do not get sick and dump any Naira before you leave the country. The currency is not exchangeable in most parts of the world.
