Lead Mechanic (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – May 24, 2016
Worked with a great team ensuring our aircraft got out on time so the passengers got to where they needed to be.I got to work with maintenance Control to plan all scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on all incoming aircraft.We were able to get most all work accomplished in the allotted scheduled time.i also got to work with a top notch Parts department ensuring the parts I ordered arrived in time to do the assigned work.The hardest part was if an aircraft experienced a problem during or right after board time.Then it was a mad scramble to get it fixed with as little delay as possible to the customers.
Endeavor Air, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Airlines and is one of the leading regional carriers in the airline industry. I consider it a privilege to work for this regional airline because it is made up of a great team of employees who constantly strive to provide a safe environment by following Federal regulations and providing excellent customer service.
Dont work here unless you are one for negative work environment. This company has bad managers in place and the training is terrible therefore trying to work efficiantly with team members becomes fustrating. Very low compnay morale. This is the absolute worst company I ever worked in my 25 years of employment. I gave it almost 2 years but company got worse not better. 6-7 legs a day and 5 day trips with 14-16hour duty is what to expect for a flight attendant. ***** DONT WORK HERE****** Delta flight benefits are great IF you can get on one of thier always OVERSOLD or DELAYED flights.
Former Flight Attendant Trainee (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – September 27, 2014
Flight attendants training is poorly structured with few knowledgeable instructors. Not enough time to be familiarized with the aircrafts and emergency equipments. Recruiters were kind, but failed to select the right match for the job. I ended up in a class with the worst kind of people one could ever have to interact. I'm sure a third will be able to make past the probationary time.
I am the face of Endeavor Air to over 40 aircraft repair vendors that spread throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. Our damaged parts are sent to these vendors and upon evaluating them for damage, the vendors send me quotes up to $70,000 to approve in order to continue with the repair. It is my responsibility to know average repair costs per part as well as how long it should take to repair each and every part. I was able to learn these quickly by effectively communicating with each vendor and using that information to compile a master spreadsheet by vendor.
I was also hired to take over the biggest project within the department which deals with landing gears. Every aircraft has a scheduled removal date for these gears and it is my responsibility to know when those dates are and to ensure we have the proper parts in stock. If the parts are not in stock, I need to get a loaned part from our secondary vendor by filing proper documentation and making sure the removed part is returned in order to fulfill the loan agreement.
Micro-managing, poor management, no training material for new hires, wage compared to industry average
Airline Pilot (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – August 25, 2013
Work and communicate with crew members in flying from Minneapolis, to jfk, or to florida , or salt lake city, Utah for example. Preflight jet and enter route, fuel, passengers, crew members, etc into planes flight computer. Navigate around weather and monitor fuel consumption. Constant communication between crew and ground control. I learned that communication between crew members is essential in conducting a safe and effective operation. We are all human beings and thus we will make mistakes, but learning from our mistakes makes us better, which is only attained through experience. The management at Endeavor had run Pinnacle airlines into bankruptcy. Which is why we have a name change. Management at this regional airline is I have to say lacking in proper leadership. Most co-workers are incredibly professional and wonderful to work with. It is because of their awesome dedication and professionalism that the airline didn't go out of business. The hardest part of the job is the training, because if you fail it means your job. This can lead to a stressful situation every year you have recurrent training, but after training is over one can relax and enjoy the sure excitement of operating a piece of equipment that can go the speed of sound at tremendously high altitudes; but not a trip goes by that you don't learn something new. The challenges you face from time to time give one a sense of accomplishment.
dealing with making quick decisions while working together as a crew. most crews are most enjoyable.
long days, on call, company forgot to get your hotel, have to eat on the go most times, bad weather, poor management, bankruptcy, lower wages, less benefits.
fun place to work, learning something new every day

Stores Clerk (Former Employee) – Erlanger, KY – August 18, 2014
I loved this job until I was passed over twice for a promotion. I was doing the job unpaid and unacknowledged. I was taking the rap for the bad and not getting acknowledged for the good. But I still did it. Cincinnati regional manager was a horrible person who would yell at you and scream at you and threaten to fire you all the time. My immediate boss was great and its sad to see he left. I did enjoy majority of my coworkers and looked forward to work!
Service Technician (Former Employee) – MSP international airport – May 21, 2014
Work on the flight line no matter the weather conditions, lack of or poor quality of tooling required for the job, broken or severly damaged work vehicles, lack of proper leadership, unjust or possible none legal ways of treating employees
bad management, harsh conditions, poor tooling and shop organization
This place has a lot of potential, but is being held way back. It's a good place to work with good people and managers. But just very difficult to start living a life. not a place to have a career in, but a great place to start gaining experience.
