no a good place to work
Flight Attendant (Current Employee), Miami, FLOctober 30, 2014
Pros: u have time to do personal things, flight benefits
Cons: no money
the hardest part of the job is the company is always looking for a way to take advantage of you. It is hard to believe but the only way is being part of the company. No body, talks good about the company. every single person is disappointed with all the changes we have had.
The company promised us a lot and at the end they end up doing whatever they – more... please.
I still working because it is hard to find a job. The job is fine, the pay is really bad (22.80) per hour flying, and you almost never ever work more than 70 hours a month. yes the company guarantee you 75 a month. thats mean like 1100 dollars a month. – less

I loved it, but it's not an easy job
Station Agent (Former Employee), Fort Walton Beach, FLOctober 22, 2014
Pros: great people, flight discounts
Cons: long hours, difficult times/days available to work
Working here was a fantastic time for me. I loved my coworkers, and working with the airline, crews, and aircraft. It does not support work life balance because starting out you have no time off and can be reprimanded regardless of the reason (medical, etc.).

I do believe those who work these positions should be better compensated. $8.50 an hour seems – more... minimal due to the amount of responsibilities, stress, and demands of the job (depending upon location). – less

Never work for an airline again
Aircraft Maintenance Technician (Current Employee), Bentonville, AROctober 18, 2014
Pros: flight benefits if you dont get bumped off.
Cons: everything
I have been with the company for just over 7 years. I still work nights (9pm-7:30am) and weekends Friday-Monday. You dont get promoted for doing good work or getting it done ahead of schedule. You have to be in the union, which is worthless. The longer your there the more money they take from your check and you never see anything out of it, unless your – more... at the main hub base in Dallas. Upper management has been caught numerous times lying about what they have done or will do to help. We even called him out on it and he admitted to fault. The last base manager did the same thing! Pay is $10 less an hour than the bigger sister company AA and takes us 12 years to top out verses AA's 6 year top out. You bid for vacation the year prior, and hope you get what you want, but working night shift you have to compete with day shift for some reason which is impossible because they will always have seniority over you. So you end up getting two weeks off in a row in February or one in January and one in September, never a summer month. Some of the guys at our base are even past retirement age and choose not to retire because they dont do anything during the day sense thats when the planes fly majority of the time. Which in turn never lets us have a chance to move up or get better days for work or vacation. – less

Fast pace work place with opportunity to advance
Station Agent (Current Employee), Monterey, CASeptember 18, 2014
Pros: flight benefits
Cons: work life will dominate personal time. part-time is near equivalent to a full-time position
On the norm, checking passengers in to their flights and then going outside to work the flight that these passengers are boarding. A very multi-tasked work place where the more you learn, the more of a valuable agent you become. All types of different people as far as customers and employees alike.

Good place
Station Agent (Former Employee), Savannah, GASeptember 12, 2014
It was a great place to work at first. Then we had a new manager come in a change every single little detail about how we did everything and it caused a lot of stress on everyone. I would have stayed longer if it weren't for that new manager and everything that she had done.

General Manager (Current Employee), Bentonville, ARAugust 9, 2014
Pros: flight benefits
Cons: headquarters is in dallas
As a manager of an airline operation you have different challenges and experiences everyday including personnel, weather, maintenance, government oversight and the every changing airline industry. Throughout my career with the company I am always learning and growing with support and guidance from leadership. The hardest part of the job is adapting – more... to the constant changes of the airline industry and staying up to date with all the current and required company and government regulations and compliance. The most enjoyable part of the job is mentoring my employees and helping them to achieve their personal goals. – less

Fun place to work
Crew Chief of Flight Operations (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJuly 30, 2014
Pros: travel, exciting, great atmosphere, benefits
Cons: compensation for jobs we performed was very little based on what other airlines were paying
I worked for American Eagle before it became Envoy Airlines after being laid off from American Airlines. They took over the ramp contract for AA. It was a very fun place to work but like any airport environment was also hectic and crazy busy at times. Management was nice and helpful for training the newbies. The hardest part was probably maintaining – more... on-time performance with a small ramp crew. – less

Great company working with wonderful people
Station Agent (Former Employee), San Angelo, TxJuly 28, 2014
Pros: free flight benefits
Cons: extremely long hours and high turn over rate of employees
A typical day at work with American Eagle was an extremely busy and constantly changing work environment. I learned the importance of providing exemplary customer service, adhering to strict timelines, while keeping safety at the forefront of my daily duties. I worked with wonderful management and fun co-workers. The heavy physical demands was the most – more... challenging part of the job. The most enjoyable part was working in a team environment with great people. – less

Exciting and a very challenging job
Flight Attendant (Former Employee), Chicago O'hareJuly 24, 2014
Pros: traveling the world for free
Cons: not making enough money
There is no typical day at work as a Flight Attendant. Everyday you're in a new destination and you meet so many different people. I've learned how to be independent. I never imagined living in Chicago or New York. It was quite the experience, especially since i've never lived through a winter. The hardest part of the job was commuting from Los Angeles, – more... Ca to Chicago or New York. The most enjoyable part of the job was having the freedom to travel anywhere in the world. – less
