Proving Runs is a must in the Aviation Industry. This must be done and approved to the FAA to make sure all FAR's are being followed. I was selected as one of the crew members selected along with 10 other Crew members, working as a team as if it were a typical day, and our response was superb. As a result National Airlines were approved for scheduled flights.
The opportunity to travel the world and understand other cultures.
Taking exams requires a little extra time to prepare, and knowing this about myself has made excel on exams I have taken in the past.
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 17, 2015
A First Class Airline called National Airlines was a personable and full service airline. It was my most least salary position ever worked; however, it was by far my most favorite employer ever. So sorry that they filed Chapter 13.
Operations (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 8, 2014
National started as a smaller "mom and pop" kind of shop with big plans to expand upgrading from prehistoric DC-8's to a fleet of 747 and 757 aircraft. The company cares about it's employees offering, among other things, free juices, sodas, coffee, and teas. This was followed by the addition of free lunch provided every day. But just as with most expanding companies the costs of expansion, relocation, and asset acquirement start setting in and they have recently went through the process of eliminating a level of management and are now operating from a point of trying to maintain said expansion while reducing the size of the work force. I have been told by a number of employees since I had left that is not even close to the same company that it had been when it left Michigan. I know if I knew the company was going to turn into what it has, I never would have left Michigan to support this company. The company does offer some really great benefits to it's employees, however it is sounding like the amount of cow dung you have to shovel to get the benefits is shifting to the "it's not worth it" side.
free lunch, good health care
management, the "we have enough money we don't need to plan anything ahead" mentality
FLIGHT LOADMASTER (Former Employee) – Ypsilanti, MI – May 16, 2013

This was a very productive environment to expand my customer service skills as well as the benefit package was a plus, I've learned to various airline codes and procedures that was used on a daily basis. Management was always helpful whenever an individual were to have his or her hands full with a complicated task or if a solution needed to be rectified by a manager. My co-workers were also the backbone of the company and like myself,always put the customer first. The hardest part of the day would be either the flight were to be late taking off due to inclement weather or the passenger's luggage didn't arrive with them on the flight and then a lost bag claim has to be submitted. The most enjoyable part about the job is once you know the airline protocol,it stays with you and you can take it with you and apply for a position in the airport or in the airline industry.
