Completely agree with this, as far as Inflight Services goes. Management is incompetent & does not have enough relevant experience to be in such significant positions. Corporate Inflight is incompetent, as well, neglecting to provide a proper manual for safe & effective operations. Inflight Training department lacks experience from the top on down. Training facilities are elementary at best, without adequate simulations & materials. Overall, the Inflight Department is a group of boobs run by boobs, with few a few exceptions to the rule. Human Resources was quite indiscriminate during initial years, hiring many unqualified candidates with questionable mental capacities relevant to the nature of a job requiring stability & team-building/crm skills. If you're looking to fly for a regional, my advice is to apply with a well-established carrier which has longevity beyond 20 years or fly mainline. Any success of this airline is due to the select few who are skilled, stable, & safe.
