747 Pilot (Former Employee) – Florida – November 28, 2018
Training was 3 months long in Florida with very bare minimum pay. They promised extreme job security. I was called out for a few moths and then for 6+ months I was never given a chance to go to work. I was then disqualified without pay for not having enough hours to fly. I was more than wanting to get hours to fly. Looking for other jobs I’m in deep debt because of them.
Travel the world
Jet lag, Stuck up co workers, HR is bad, no work, bad pay, no care

Atlas is a great start for your career, unfortunately the pay is extremely low compared to industry average.Work life balance is great and everyone is respectful. There is not much room for advancement though, you need to branch out if you wish to continuing growing in your career.
I have been with the company since the very beginning. I have seen all the changes in real time. Not many of them have been good. If you want a short term opportunity to see the world, this may be for you; not many people get to see Germany, Kuwait, Crete, Qatar, Australia, Bahrain, Poland.... the list goes on.... these will be everyday destinations for you. But if you are looking for a long term Flight Attendant career, look elsewhere like UA, AA, DL, SWA etc
Management is friendly to your face, but has no interest in your well being. Morale tends to be low. There is a lot of favoritism, if you are going to be one of the 'in crowd' to get on and advance, then prepare to spend a lot of time brown nosing with management in the office. On the upside, most of your passengers will be US military, it IS a great feeling to bring them home.
Flying the 747! Worldwide travel, going to unique places that the other air carriers do not visit.
Low pay, elderly planes, very long hours, low morale, NO travel benefits, poor management...
Airline Pilot (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 28, 2018
Constantly gone and when you're home, you are so exhausted that you are going to sleep at 10:00 am and waking up at 10:00 pm. Management was extremely toxic!! Would go out for a 3-day trip to Europe and hit Anchorage, AK three weeks later. Your schedule was always changing and you were always tired. We had no union at that time, so if you did not do what they told you to do, you would get fired. As a Captain, I always felt as though every time I went to work, I taped my license on the dashboard. If I screwed up somewhere along the way, it was gone. Otherwise I would take it down and put it back in my wallet for the next flight.
747 LCF Ground Operations Ramp Agent/Trainer (Former Employee) – North Charleston, SC – March 27, 2018
Work load is a trade off . Busy days, eat when you walk thru the building. Corporate Manager use to be a Home Depot Manager and does not care about people, just his bonus by seeing how much money he can save from hiring new employees or giving raises.
Tend to hire people with no Aircraft experience and can not do the job or retain they're training but still keep them even when they damage equipment.
Other than that the majority of the other folks are great. Still have some who are clickish, and will stab you in the back in a skinny minute.
I enjoy the variety of flying, equipment and destinations
Line Check Airman (Current Employee) – Naples, FL – March 10, 2018
While we are hiring on a full scale rate, we are losing pilots due to bad management. We still don’t have an attractive contract in order to retain our recruits. We fly the troops and their families all over the world, we fly a 767 with only business class seats for celebrities and sports teams.
