Great Benefits, Inconsistent Work Environment
Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) –  Asheville, NCOctober 17, 2016
Starting wages at Piedmont are low and the probationary period forces you to work full time for next to nothing for about 3 months. If you can't deal with different supervisors having conflicting requirements and a schedule that is about as consistent and rigid as a plastic bag in a hurricane then stay away, otherwise this is a great opportunity to get a job that will allow you to travel the world on the salary of a McDonalds employee. There are also opportunities to move up to Mainline stations where pay and hours are significantly better.
Pros
Free Flights, Union, Fast-Paced Work Environment
Cons
Low Pay, Poor Scheduling, Indecisive Management, Difficult Co-Workers

great experience
Ramp Agent/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 6, 2017
Piedmont airlines is a regional jet company own by American airlines thus granting all employees same benefits as employees of American Airlines. They provide virtually the same uniform, rules regulations and so on. It is a great company to work for except that it is a revolving door and many employees do not last too long there due to absurd rules designed to only keep employees for a very short period thus making it impossible to advance.
Pros
travel benefits
Cons
zero percent chance at promotion

Assistant Team Member Services (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 13, 2017
It was a great company to work for, with terrific benefits. My position was customer service; helping agents with their various needs, answering phones, data entry, complete on boarding packets. The administrative team went through some changes that could have created a challengeing environment, but with strong management the negavite side of that was avoided. I enjoyed the variety of the job, always something new to learn.
Pros
Travel, good people to work with
Cons
short staffed on weather days

Flight Attendant (Current Employee) –  Harrisburg, PANovember 2, 2016
One day is always different from another. I travel from state to state meeting all kinds of people. The management is not involved in my day to day activities and I usually never see any management.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with and the actual flying itself. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult passengers and ground employees that don't know the rules and regulations .
Pros
Free travel and excellent health benefits
Cons
no breaks at times and delays

CUSTOMER AGENT (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 1, 2016
Piedmont Airline was a very rewarding company to work for, lots of room for advancement. Good management and team-members. Good benefits ( health, pension and flying benefits). The hardest part of this job was dealing with unhappy customers, when flight are late or cancel. The most joyful part of the job is meeting lots of different people everyday, and you also get to meet the rich and famous.
Pros
Flying benefits & pay
Cons
Over booked flights

It does get hard, but simple.
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAJanuary 30, 2017
A typical day at work can begin very good and immediately go wrong. That is a typical day for any airline. Management backs up general managers at field stations no matter what, so even if general managers don't know anything that is going on in the station, it wouldn't be their fault. No help for the employees. Union is not much help because stewards don't take their job serious. Recruiters recruit anyone that has a clean driving record no matter the experience.
Pros
Free flights
Cons
You won't have the time to fly.

Great work enviroment but the lack of care for there employee's is the worst
ramp Baggages (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAApril 18, 2016
Even though the job it self is not the worst as long as you dont mind working out door year long, The rules and procedures can be altered a little for everyone benifits, and if something goes wrong run for cover even if you did nothing cause someone getting fired thats the mental work here, but on a day where every hting goes perfect its like a dream job, and the fact that you work in a team is awesome but then again you dont always get paired with the same person and sometime its a new person and if that happen its more like your baby sitting and doing there job because you dont want anything to go wrong on your shift or your gone.
Pros
you can go the whole day and only work 2 flights
Cons
It can be a hundred and 120 degrees and you still got to be out there doing flights

It had its ups and downs
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Yuma, AZ 85364September 27, 2016
It was hard to do most of the time, lack of man power made the the job twice has hard as it should be. Working both outside and up front inside made it difficult to be presentable to the public. The crew was a good one, for the most part. lack of management made it difficult to make any good stats and the station suffered for littile reasons that could be preventable
Pros
Flying for free
Cons
demand for what was required and what was paid didnt match the work

Terrible Work Environment with low morale
Ramp Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 6, 2016
Quickly came to find out that no one cares about you or your advancement. Low Pay and Hard work in the sun. Managers sit in the break room and you can never find them. Then of something goes wrong they come and ask what happened.
Pros
Flight Benefits
Cons
Everything else

Flight Attendant (Current Employee) –  Salisbury, MDNovember 2, 2016
My day begins with checking in at my base at the airport and doing an aircraft security check and getting everything ready to accept passengers. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult passengers and dealing with ground employees that don't know the rules and regulations.
Pros
Free travel and great benefits
Cons
No breaks at times

Good direct management. However, not enough resources were ever given to employees so they can do their jobs properly. It became unsafe because of this.

Pros
Company growth, and business travel...
Cons
Fast pace, with many issues in a moments notice...
