    I worked at Swiss Colony full-time

    Pros

    Great benifits and tons of hours to pick up during peak season. Optional to have vto to come back the following year.

    Cons

    The computer system they have for working on the phones isnt the friendliest to use. Would help if it was more modern.

    Advice to Management

    Do more training exercises on the phones not live with customers. It would help build being comfortable on the phone talking.

    Pros

    Solid healthcare, discounts are wonderful, but doesn't make up for the hostile work environment.

    Cons

    Everywhere you conduct yourself, be cautious. Everyone is out for themselves, very sad "old men's club" middle management model. Keep views to yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is not only toxic, but absolutely sinister. I've never witnessed anything like it in my career.

    I worked from home! If we needed help someone was always there.

    I have been working at Swiss Colony full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing charter company with career growth opportunities. They really support their pilots advancing in education as well. Compared to most charter operators, there's a good company culture here (there's always a few detractors though). Management is reasonable most of the time and personable (particularly with new restructuring of upper mgmt). Family owned parent company and it shows. They bend over backwards to help staff in personal difficulties (medical or family issues)

    Cons

    Pay is slightly below industry standard but they try to compensate slightly for that with profit sharing. Could use more revisiting. Medical benefits are not all that great. Schedule has improved but could still use slight improvement. Must live near Janesville, WI, no commuting (more than 45 mins).

    Advice to Management

    Keep making steps in the right direction for personnel and this will be a GREAT company to work for.
