    I have been working at Mesa Air full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Crews most the time. Able to get seniority fast which means control over your schedule quicker in comparison to mainlines. Travel benefits.

    Cons

    You're a cog in the machine. " Minutes matter at Mesa" and that is the only thing that matters to them. You're easily replaceable. Pay is the lowest in the industry and half the time your checks don't seem to add up. Travel benefits are a plus but while on reserve its hard to use them most the time.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect your employee's.

    Pros

    Flight Benefits, 3 days off a week, good pay on graveyard shift, medical, quarterly bonus checks.

    Shift hardly changes, no seniority, no room to grow after 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing giving yearly raises, allow for more opportunities to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Great company to work for ! Pay is okay and it gets better with time.

    Cons

    Too many young immature kids that have no work ethic!
    -Ugly Uniforms

    Advice to Management

    Flight Attendants play an important role in your company and we are the face of the company, Please hire more adults with work ethics instead of these young kids that don't care and act all kind of ways in front of the passengers, remember we are representing American and United and image is very important.
    Please come up with new uniforms !
    Do compliance/ image check at every base!
    Enforce the image ! Be the best! Be the greatest Regional!

    I worked at Mesa Air full-time

    Pros

    Travel benefits (if you’re lucky enough to get the time to use them)

    Cons

    Unprofessional, unorganized. Everything they tell you prior to training and the early stages of training is just a game to get you in the door and then you see who you’re rally working for. Lowest paid airline in the industry and don’t except to see a paycheck after all the payments they take out each check. No wonder they have training classes every two weeks.. nobody wants to work for a company that is so dysfunctional, they don’t know their head from their butts! SAVE YOURSELF THE TIME AND DO NOT WORK FOR MESA
