Shift Manager (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – October 8, 2017
Checking in/boarding customers for flights to great destination for their trips for pleasure and business is gratifying and enjoyable for both them and me especially when all flights go as designed. When they do not sill getting them there in the best way possible and doing the best you can to correct a deficiency is also one of the most gratifying parts of the position and job as well as taking care of our own employees in the meantime.
This job is great if you want to travel the world but that is all. If you are ready to have low pay and be disrespected by customers and management this job is perfect for you. I am ready to leave due to the low pay and inconsistency in the company.

Solid pay and benefits depending on where you live. You might get paid just enough to get by! Main benefit is free travel within the US. I was able to eventually relocate from a flyover state to major US city where I've had much more opportunity.

Piedmont Airlines is a subsidiary operating as American Airlines. They have a union so there is some form of job security. However, the agents are paid substantially lower than American Airline agents. I would only suggest this job to someone who wants to obtain airline work experience.

Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – August 15, 2017
load and unload bags, I learned nothing, management is by far the worst I ever worked with, I work with a bunch of idiots, the agents are more educated than the majority of management, the hardest part of the job is dealing with management and working in inclement weather, the most enjoyable part is working with some of the people and clocking out and going home
The people at Piedmont are great however the management is not fair. You are not compensated for the amount of work you actually do. The hours are not usually good at first but the ability to swap is helpful.
Ramp unit manager -CLT (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – August 8, 2017
Very good health benefits as well as flight benefits. Very fast paced, lots of great people from different backgrounds. Pay is competitive with other ground handlers. By far Piedmont is the best in pay second to mainline.
