    I worked at Avianca part-time

    Pros

    Tickets at low cost sometimes

    Cons

    Since avianca merge with Taca it became in a non customer service company!!!. His current Manager has lead this airline to its lowest point. He treat his employees as trash; no benefits, not time to go and take a break, not even the 15 mandatory minutes per ever 6 hours worked!. His push you to go and work on your days off and if you don't do it you will regret it sooner or later!!!. It is sad that a clean and honest company as avianca was 10 years ago, it is now a decadent an cheap company!!.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Miami manager!!!

    Pros

    Being part of a great industry with an airline that is a region leader is great, plus the travel benefits and the growth opportunities

    The company is still working it out after the merge with Taca Airlines, there is still some kind of rivalry between the employees of both companies.

    Advice to Management

    Care more for the counter agents and the people in the basic positions, they are the soul of the company
