Benefits Coordinator (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 24, 2016
I learned all of my benefits experience from this company. My director at the time was amazing and really took her time to develop me. My co-workers all were amazing as well, we worked well together and like a family at times. The company / department really helped me out before my departure. I don't have one bad thing to say about them.
Station LEAD / TRAINER (Current Employee) – Bellingham, WA – December 8, 2015
The job is great. The people I work with are wonderful. The problem is there is a lack of leadership and they do not care too much for what the employees have to deal with on a day to day basis.The company does not compensate and after a year and a half I got my first non promotional increase of .25 cents per hour.
Manager, Materials Purchasing (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 5, 2015
Allegiant is a great place to work. It is located in fabulous Las Vegas, NV, and is one of the most successful airlines in the world. The environment is extremely fast paced and no two days are alike. I have found that my fellow co-workers are always willing to share information or laughs with me. Aviation can be very stressful though. The lives of our passengers are in our hands and we cannot let them down from a reliability or safety standpoint. It is great knowing that what we do does make a difference in the lives of so many people. Because we are an ultra-low cost air carrier, people are able to fly to places that they only dreamed of visiting before. My only complaint is there is not a whole lot of room for development once you have a management position. Raises are not typical and vacation time is very limited. Most managers work with your needs though.
Travel benefits, great environment
Not a lot of vacation and no set cost of living raises each year.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 2, 2015
Being a Flight Attendant is a rewarding and exciting career and helping passengers, giving great customer service and providing a safe journey to destinations around the US is a positive in all aspects.
Customer Service & Ground Operations Agent (Former Employee) – Davis, CA – July 5, 2015
I worked in a small airport for Allegiant Air where we were 1 of 2/3 Airlines sharing 2 gates. This caused agents to be a part of Ground Operations and Customer Service. Not only that but there was usually only 3-5 flights per week, rarely reaching 7 unless for charter flights. Neither of these are bad of course but would not satisfy a full-time job in the slightest. This makes the job attractive towards retired individuals and those looking for part-time work.
Company culture was different than any I had ever worked with
Manager, Charter Operations (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 28, 2015
Allegiant Air was a great place. I relocated from Texas after being hired and after a short time realized the company culture was not something I was accustomed too. I had been groomed by the North West culture which emphasized customer/guest relations, on time performance and ultimately the bottom line. Allegiant was about the bottom line which was more important than customer relations. Nothing bad, just not my style of managing.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 23, 2015
A typical day began with a meeting with my manager to assist him with any upcoming meetings, etc. While supporting him, I was given to learn valuable information as to how the Airline industry worked. I was given the opportunity to learn Quality Testing, supported my boss and 30 other managers and co-workers. Any training that you need was approved and not contested. Enjoyed working with everyone. The job itself was not difficult at all.
Training was given for whatever you wanted to learn.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 3, 2015
A typical day at work included aiding customers in booking and modifying flight itineraries, selling airline packages with hotels, show tickets, attractions, and third party products, as well as solving customer problems while ensuring professional customer service. For anyone who has worked in a call center it is no different, besides maybe the call wait times. The hardest part of the job was remember and describing all products sold. It was a great job to gain experience from.
Crew Tracker (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 19, 2015
A typical day at Allegiant is unpredictable and nonstop. You learn to adapt to change quickly, handle stress and ultimately be a team player. The hardest part is being able to not worry and to stay calm, the most enjoyable part is walking in knowing something different is going to occur.
Non-Predictable Schedule (no weekends off/holidays off)
