    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!

    Pros

    Meeting new people is always .

    Cons

    Pay, company morale, company reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay which in turn will boost moral. Stop losing contracts that are putting jobs at risk. You’ve lost a huge contract with American which was majority of what your serviced. Now what?

    "Scheduler"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Trans States full-time

    Pros

    The pay is okay, the training is extensive and very thorough

    Cons

    You will work 11.5 hours a day 3-4 days a week, NO lunch breaks, management picks their favorites, if one Scheduling Supervisor doesn’t like you NONE of them like you. Pilots can be rude, flight attendants can be as well, but it’s to be expected because we CONSTANTLY changed everything they did.

    Advice to Management

    Add lunch breaks like you’re LEGALLY supposed to, stop choosing favorites, and don’t make people feel out of place.
