    I worked at Envoy Air part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flight benefits are great, shifts can be given away easier than any 9 to 5 shift, holdays are awesome to make money.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, the company itself is selfish, the union isn't complete yet and great workers have lost their jobs over trivial and minor issues. The company needs to fire the RMD for SAN because not only is he a thief and a liar rolled into one but also where most of the issues began for the station since he started.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of the RMD and his crooked leadership. If you can stand being stressed out most of the time- then GM position is for you. Supervisors are also hired on a whim. This station had hard workers but management is a joke.

    I have been working at Envoy Air full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I’m a 16 year FA based in BOS & ORD , it’s a great company . A subsidiary wholly owned by American Airlines. Benefits, 401k match, Medical, Dental, vacation accrual. Reserve for a year , then when you get a line (schedule) you usually don’t go back on reserve like other companies . Once your off , your off reserve as long as you can hold it . Friendly , happy employees .
     / start pay $18.00 or so plus perdiem. Good overnights . Regional Jets ERJ 140/145 , CRJ700 with 9 first class seats , ERJ175 with 12 first class seats.

    Cons

    Be aware there can be weather delays and broken airplanes that drives passengers crazy . But sometimes the silver lining is if your in a great city with a broken airplane you can explore !

    Advice to Management

    Please treat employees as an asset . Most FA become managers and forget where they started

    I have been working at Envoy Air full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smaller stations can feel like a caring family
    Immediate flight benefits
    Working under the AMR umbrella can lead to great networking opportunities for the future

    Cons

    Pay rate for work done is a joke
    Attrition is unbelievable
    30% what you know, 70% who you know
    General Managers and up are so out of touch with their workgroup. This results in exhausting the employees who are STILL waiting on a union contract

    Advice to Management

    Regional managers and up need to pay much closer attention to what is really happening at their stations. Stop taking your GM's word and get in there and see for yourself. Some stations are floundering under the misguided "leadership" of some GMs. No GM is going to tell you that the station isn't doing well. Not one. Open your eyes.

    I worked at Envoy Air part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lost weight and stayed fit. Had fun times with coworker and crew chiefs. Got to watch movies and play video games in the down time. Also met a lot of political people and actors.

    Cons

    Lots of mandatory overtime without notice. Long commute time and had to weather storms. Many times you either slept in the break room or locker rooms, in order to make sure you and your coworkers were safe when pushing out flights.
