Lead Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 15, 2017
For travel experience I will always be thankful for my time at Vision airlines. Once I left the Commercial side I really was able to experience the true Stewardess experience. Private is the only way to go
Flight Specialist Supervisor (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 7, 2017
a typical work day was a 12 hr shift (I didn't mind) I learned a great deal of airport information and how the airplanes work. And what it takes for an airport to work. The management was great when I first got hired but like all good things must come to an end.
Corporate Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – August 30, 2016
The absolute worst place ever you could imagine to work times 10 so unprofessional. The money was good for a while but after that its not worth the drama. Inflight managers sleeping their way to the top, pilots that use drugs. Horrible place.
Probably one of the worst places to work, paychecks bounce often
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – North Las Vegas, NV – February 22, 2016
The hardest part of the job at Vision Airlines is the exception that no matter how hard you try advancement isn't possible unless you are related to a manager. The paychecks bounce like rubber balls and respecting the customer is frowned upon. The company does not follow labor laws, nor do they pay their bills but because everyone needs their jobs no one stands against the poor business practices. Expectations upon each employee is not universal, often race is favored no matter how many complaints of justified unfairness is addressed. The most enjoyable part of the position was primarily the hours I worked and being permitted to do homework when my office work was completed daily.
This company is a chicken with its head cut off. It does not plan ahead and is constantly short staffed. They threaten you with loss of job all the time. If you don't like the schedule or rules goodbye. Always play favorites and hard to move up in the company. Abuse of employees all the time extended hours with out proper off days compensation. In other words glad I'm no longer there I hope it gets organized if not its going straight to the ground.
Past It's Sell-By-Date, This is a dying airline, will be surprised if they see out the end of the year!
Las Vegas Office (Former Employee) – Las Vegas – August 10, 2015
This airline had the makings to be something great, in my time here, I have seen people leave for bigger jobs - Major Airlines, People walked off the premises with no notice, including a co-owner ousted by his "Partners" behind his back & people leaving after finally seeing the light at the end of tunnel by realizing jobs do exist that pay you benefits -
This company will ditch you without notice if suits them so always make sure you have boxes handy. Airline is full of employees waiting for the next big job to come calling & when it does you will see the difference between working for a real airline & Vision.
The Canyon operation is struggling due to limited aircraft & spares which keeps the airline ticking - This will run out due to lack of resources pretty soon!
If you need a job then take it but always keep your resume fresh & flood the market as soon as you can.
My Co-Workers (Excluding Management), Salary Ok, Short commute to work, relaxed atmosphere
No Benefits, No Job Security, Unpredictable Owners, No 401-K, Medical coverage cancelled but they still took payment from peoples salaries.
CORPORATE FLIGHT ATTENDANT (Former Employee) – Las Vegas – August 1, 2015
Horrible Planing, they will leave you stranded at a city with no flight to go back home, no hotels having to wait sometimes up to 8hrs. no direct deposit, they mail your check and sometimes not even on time. they will try to overwork you overpassing FAA rules and FAR.s
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – February 20, 2015
It was my first experience as a flight attendant and will be my last with a charter company. Not a reliable source of income more of a job for a mother going through a mid-life crisis or a kid with support fresh out of school. Traveling was awesome though and they never put us in crummy hotels. I was grateful to see other countries and meet new people if nothing else. My DOI and instructor were great but the close knit family like power structure there will always hinder the company with its petty grudges. Also they are building a bad reputation for reliability so its not a long term position with contracts coming and going within months. If you want to travel and earn some pocket cash doing so go for it.
Flight Line Mechanic (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – September 21, 2014
A day at my job has the makings to be great. I have learned to be steadfast in this organization. Co-worker is cool, notice I said co-worker. Hardest part to to plan life around this work. I enjoy watching an aircraft launch.
Diverse company that gave me the opportunity to have fun while providing phenomenal customer service
Lead Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 26, 2013
Everyday was a fresh start. I learned to expect the unexpected, always making the best of a challenging or unplanned situation. Worked well with management to create the best possible service. Established a cooperative and comfortable relationship with all co-workers, ensuring a successful team approach to every task at hand. Enjoyed consistently meeting new customers and traveling to various destinations. Fluctuations in the airline industry makes job security very unstable and difficult to trust.
Seeing new places and meeting new people
Job security is low, making it difficult to rely on a long term career within the company
Representative (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 20, 2013
Each day is a roller coaster there these days. Huge lack of communication between all departments with a lack of resources to do your work efficiently. Employee's are great and the personalities really make it worth while to be here. Job security is the biggest problem, they will lay you off with no notice then call you back days later to accept another job because the turnover has increased so much over the past 12 months. There is room for growth and success as long as the micromanaging stops.
mechanic (Former Employee) – Based in Louisville, KY – March 12, 2013
I was there only for a year. Everyone I worked with was great. My direct supervisor was great. His bosses, not so much. We usually played musical parts on 4 airplanes due to the fact we only had enough parts to make two planes fly at one time. In my final days at Vision I was a flight mechanic on a 767 in Caracas, Venezuela. Most of the time there were only 2 sometimes 3 mechanics to cover 140-150 man hours per week. We flew with the plane. Week starts at 10 am on Sunday with a chance to take a shower on mid day Tuesday, then another chance for a shower on Thursday mid day and finally sleep in a hotel on Friday night and Saturday night. The plane flies 7 days a week. This was 20 days on 10 days off. Oops almost forgot. They switched me over to salary when I was on that schedule. 59k/year. A mechanic would stay on the plane for four legs, that's four crew changes, and get a chance to get a shower. If the plane breaks on the fourth leg, you stay and work on it.
see the world
see the world and stay there for 2 hours and leave. stay on the plane from 8-10 hours a leg.
Passenger Service Agent / GSC (Former Employee) – Eglin AFB, FL – January 6, 2013
Just not a predictable company to work for. Flights were always late. Very angry passengers. Planes would be taken away from flights for charter flights. Never knew if there was a job for me the next day.
Vision is a great company with a lot to offer. Their lack of responsibility to not only customers, but employees is unbelievable. They will let you go with an 8 hour notice, and your manager will not even be the one to make the call.
