Not sure how this place is still running
IT Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Ft. Lauderdale, FLJanuary 25, 2018
Unsure how this place continues to run. They abuse their employees and have such a high turnover rate that I was constantly training new peers. I was actually terminated while traveling for this company! They didn't even wait to see if I made it home safely... and that shows how much they care.

Upbeat environment
Technical Procurement Buyer (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJanuary 7, 2018
The people here are great. It's a mixture of great races and backgrounds. My typical workday consist of getting up at 0415 and driving two hours to work in Orlando and mostly interacting with vendors and coworkers to complete heavy checks on aircraft and purchases for parts and supplies. Going to lunch and heading home at 1730 for another two hour drive back to Gianesville
Pros
Flights benefits and Lifemart discounts
Cons
Driving 2 hours to get here, everything else is great

Not Fun
Crew Scheduling (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJanuary 5, 2018
People there will watch you and not be very helpful in educating you on the processes for doing things. Personal experience of observing the Supervisor on Netflix, but getting in trouble when I looked at my phone.
Pros
Salary pay, working in office
Cons
must be careful with coworkers.

Flight Attendant
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLSeptember 27, 2017
Silver Airways is a very good company for those starting off in their career as a flight attendant. I have learned as a flight attendant there are many responsibilities that one must be able to handle especially when operating an aircraft such as ours. The Sabb 340 b+. seats 34 passengers, you will be the only flight attendant. As far as management, Silver Airways has understanding management. However, there is no union. This could be a cause for stress when facing situations that you feel might be unfair. The hardest part of the job is the airlines age. This company is five years old as such, there are many opportunities for growth. None the less, you will love the people you work with.
Pros
Flight Benefits
Cons
long hours, hot aircrafts, delayed flights

Terrible place to work
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLSeptember 21, 2017
A typical day at silver was delays of flights , dealing with scheduling which was rude and did not care if we had enough rest or not . This airline was run like a airline in the 1950's . Management was terrible and would try to fire you in a minute . They finally got a union which gave us some protection . Turn over was so high that there were flights that they didn't have flight attendants to work the. The hardest part of the job was telling the passengers about the delays and best part was flying .
Pros
Stand-by free flights
Cons
Management, No unity at this company, Lack of diversity and respect for older employee's .

A&P Technician (Former Employee) –  floridaSeptember 16, 2017
90% of the work is done by 10% of the people, wouldnt go back to work there if I had a different option. But it is a great place to learn a specific aircraft and make some money while working with some great people.

Silver airline used my school, Florida International University, to assist in an advertising campaign for their upcoming Cuba routes. While I was essentially contracted, I found the management to be helpful and resourceful.

Customer Service
Supervisor, Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJune 5, 2017
Airline industry is always on the go. You learn to work with people from all walks of life. Managers rotate every from years to keep as the company continues to grow. The hard part is canceled flights at the end of the night and having to re book customers for the next available day of travel. Enjoyable moments are going home and relaxing after a long day.
Pros
Very good travel benefits for employees and immediate family.
Cons
You can work so much it is hard for the employee to enjoy the travel benefits.
