Flight Consultant (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 15, 2016
The only good thing about the job was a few of the supervisors and during the time working days, you get 3 or 4 days off, but you pay for it with 13+ hour days.
A typical day is handling very short notice trips and trying to convince CAAs to give you a permit. They have their pet customers, and woe to you if something goes wrong, even if it is a ridiculous request they make. You can never say no.
Spire Flight Solutions, which is part of them in Denver, is led by a very inept, lazy, good for nothing manager. He shoves all of his responsibility to the lower levels, and throws people under the bus to save himself. That is of course if you are not his pet. They change policies and procedures weekly, so it's very hard to remember what the latest is.
The sales team act like bosses, and treat them like secretaries, especially the ones in Singapore. The manager lets them, and encourages it.
The atmosphere is very toxic, and they do not listen to a word you say. Plus, they continue to hire inexperienced people. The turnover rate is very high, and that says a lot about the structure. I was there 2 1/2 years ago, and from a start of 15, I ended as number 3 in seniority, including the supervisors.
To be fair, the benefits are really good. The pay not so much. They just recently realized they underpaid and increased everyone.
Bad management, long days
