Flight Training Manager (Former Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – May 29, 2016
There is a reason this position is open...two Flight Training Managers moved on to other jobs inside of 3 months. The workload is grossly understated in the advertisement and HR / Chief Flight Instructor were unwilling to negotiate a salary any higher than $46k.
For that $46k/yr you will be responsible for the daily actions of 20-23 CFI's each with 6-8 students...you can do the math (was actually assigned 196 students upon leaving). 99% of the flight instructors working there are recent graduates, meaning they have zero experience or perspective of any other kind of learning/aviation outside of ERAU.
You will notice multiple advertisements from ERAU Flight Dept, the number of open positions and the high turnover rate says volumes. There are much better opportunities available.
Senior Management doesn't listen to the workers in the field.
Manager of Budget & Administrative Services (Former Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – October 12, 2014
For an educational institution, they have highly reputable faculty; however, they put too much emphasis on trying to make each off site campus location identical when in reality each location is unique and not all of what headquarters wants works at each individual location. The main campus gets great ratings because working at main campus is awesome; however, when you are out in the field at one of the 150+ campus locations, life is not as happy as headquarters whats the public to believe.
