Sounds great, but it's a horrible place to work.
Pros: co-workers, travel (when you are able) aircraft
Cons: pay, management, rules, work hours, health benefits, tsa, faa, rude customers, airport operations
On paper, this job sounds great. Possibilties to grow, learn, develop..
Not at all! This place, is a joke. Poor management, poor pay, poor benefits. High expectations, many company created issues that can be completely avoided.
Co-workers are great. Hard working individuals that make our General Manager look great, while she does absolutely nothing. at the end of the day, this company has done nothing to correct the issues we have brought to there attention.
Traveling, which is supposed to be our best travel priviledge has become almost impossible to do because of long work hours/days, and the difficulty in getting shifts covered due to non-exsistant training and high employee turnover.
The expectation at Envoy is that 1 individual is trained $9/hour to do the work of 5 other individuals, while if this was a mainline airline, and not a gound handling operation, you would be trained to be 1 individual, getting paid $15+/hour to do 1 simple task. THIS DOES NOT WORK. This only creates unsafe working conditions because employees are tired, overworked, and underpaid. The morale at this company is low and always will be as long as company continues to take advantage of people.
Sure, if you want your foot in the door of an airline, by all means apply--but know that every expectation you may have, and every promise they feed you is FALSE, and you like everyone before you will continue to leave this company and find work elsewhere, doing less work, and making more money. (Even FAST FOOD PAYS MORE THAN THIS PLACE, and you do A LOT LESS WORK)
While Envoy is part of American Airlines, this review is in no way a reflection of American and its business policies or procedures, and is strictly regarding Envoy.
My honest opinion, is that you avoid this company, and highly reccomend that you find another job, at a more respectable company... While I know that this is not easy, it will save you in the end, because I guarantee you will never be happy or satisfied here.
