    Pros

    flight benefits on American airlines and paid training

    Cons

    -some of the lowest pay in the industry for flight attendants, the union is a joke, the company does not feel that we deserve a raise
    -expectations are high, they want us to act like mainline AA but compensate us as we work at McDonald's
    -lowest pay of all 3 wholly owned regionals
    -supervisors are a joke, if you try to protect yourself or defend yourself you risk becoming a target for retaliation
    -only 10 days off minimum when pilots/other wholly-owned regionals have 11 days off
    -no commuter hotels for flight attendants when pilots/other wholly-owned regionals have them
    -horrible sick time accrual, 3 hours a month which doesn't even cover 1 day of work
    -terribly built schedules, 4-day trips worth 12 hours = no money
    -toxic work environment
    -every other department gets raises except for flight attendants

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your flight attendants. If you take care of your people, your people will take care of your customers. You demand so much from us but are not willing to compensate us fairly. AA is profiting off of us majorly, so why can't some of the profits trickle down to our pay raises? I don't want to hear about CWA collective bargaining blah blah blah. We should not have to "negotiate" for a raise. We are a growing and profitable airline, we deserve a raise and PSA can afford it.

    I worked at PSA Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the job ! It’s such a fun job with good flight benefits. They have really good medical as well.

    Cons

    Reserve sucks we get treated very poorly. They can call you basically when ever they want. They violate our contract any and every chance they get. Your pay checks are barely enough to live by. When I read the reviews I should have listened to my gut instinct about this company but I didn’t and went through with it . The contract is one of the worst contracts in the industry. I wouldn’t recommend this company to any one I would recommend SPIRIT airlines before them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat us like human beings this man literally said us Flight Attendants are a dime a dozen what CEO talks about his employees like that !

    Pros

    Operates under the American Airlines brand

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, raises stop after 2 years of employment
    They make you buy $800 worth of TOXIC uniforms they know cause physical ailments
    Constant intimidation from scheduling AND management (Flight attendants BEWARE!)
    Work culture full of people who tattle tell on every little thing
    Poor treatment of minorities

    Advice to Management

    Throw the whole management team away and start over and acquire individuals who actually care, respect and show appreciation towards the employees in deed not just words

    I worked at PSA Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Having 3 days off in a row.

    Cons

    Where to start? ... Teamwork: I see this in the new hires as they have to work together to try and figure out what to do as "training" is a joke. Shifts are assigned "leads", also a joke as some feel "entitled" with this position. As certain leads say newer people are there to do what they dont want to. And when "supervisors" are not around the attitude of these leads gets worse. The language, the sexist comments, crudeness and vulgarity, the laziness of said above. People should not have to feel uncomfortable at their place of employment and knowing that site management will do nothing about it. The minimal pay and headache is not worth it. And this is just saying things lightly. ***This applies to the store/parts department*** Ohio location.

    Advice to Management

    CORPORATE advice. Do a sweep of these stores. Sit down one on one with EACH employee. Things that are happening are making PSA look very bad not to mention a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    I have been working at PSA Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are great to work with.
    Flight benefits.

    Cons

    Pilot and flight attendant salaries are below industry average.
    Management sets unrealistic goals and points the finger at crew members for in-efficencies.
    Company uses a point system, if you call out sick, you get points. Too many points and you could be fired.
    Flight attendants can be on duty for more than 14hours a day (not on the clock).
    No compassion for employees. We are treated as replaceable if we don't do what they say.

    Advice to Management

    Change your attitude for the best of the employees. If you don't treat your employees with respect, you won't gain respect.
