    It can be a bit challenging sometime being the only flight attendant on board.

    I worked at Trans States full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff was friendly. The pilots were solid.

    Cons

    Good company to work for but not a well paying career. I never made more than $20k while working max hours every month (100-120). No end of year bonus to make up for lack of pay. And you can be physically at work up to 16 hours a day. Our 8 hours of rest in 2014 would start when the plane full of passengers was parked. Not when they got off. Not after we deplaned, got our bags to a shuttle, made it to the hotel, checked in and found our room at the end of the hotel. The rules have changed a bit after I left but we had to call in fatigued too often to keep them from pushing us beyond our limits. It's not just this company, it's happening with all regional carriers. We are eligible for food stamps working here. I was also furloughed once in my 3 years. They were very professional about it but still... the compensation is weak.

    A good stepping stone, flight benefits okay.

    I have been working at Trans States full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and there is definitely a "small town" family vibe to the company, especially at HQ. Some awesome people scattered among the company both at HQ and out on the line.

    Cons

    It's a regional airline and I haven't worked for another but from observations it seems they all have issues. If you are new to the industry - especially inflight - do your research and I suggest skipping regional life and head straight to major carrier. If you do go regional, go for wholly owned! Inflight union contract has many holes. Inflight director can be non responsive.

    Advice to Management

    You have some AMAZING people working the front lines for you who put up with a lot from all sides yet put forth their best self. A little more appreciation and morale boosters would go a long way!
