Pros

Great place to work if you love travelling and working with travelers. Great benefits including health care and flight benefits. Employee focused.

Cons

Mandatory overtime at airport positions. Shift work. Low pay over all. Planes full so that cuts into flight benefits. 90 day probationary period seems excessive.

Advice to Management

Look internally for talent. Consider ways to develop internal candidates. Reign in the Unions. Class it up. Keep AirTrans Business Class product.

    Pros

    Really a great and happy place to work with a lot of flexibility!

    Cons

    Seems to be a shift in Senior Management thinking/philosophy in our overall direction. Maybe we need it, but there seems to be a lot of new people coming in from consultant type roles, etc. There seems to be a stark difference between existing management and new management.

    Pros

    Benefits, shift trades, good training

    Cons

    Poor Team Leaders, probation is 6 months any little thing your gone! Low pay, call center....customers can be awful not enough pay to have to deal with so much condescending people. Half the time computers or website is not performing as it should.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for there Team Leaders! Very political, drama, he said she said to get others in trouble. Probationary period of six months is ridiculous. Micromanaging unfortunately is like prison.
