Stores Clerk (Former Employee) – Romulus, MI – May 29, 2018
I loved working at Endeavor Air. I left because I had finished my education in a separate field. Stores clerks are responsible for receiving parts in to the storeroom and distributing them to the mechanics.
A typical work day required you to be on your feet majority of the day. It is a very face paced job and learning time management is prominent. The culture is great. Yet the contract for reserve flight attendants is terrible.
Fun to meet new people but must be conformist because everything is scripted.
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 10, 2018
All announcements are scripted and you are instructed not to deviate. FAs are not permitted to be funny or deviate from script. Individualism and personality not a plus or desired. If you smile a lot and adhere to their specific standards you'll be fine. Requires being a conformist, not asking questions, and strictly following the manual. Military background, organized persons, and people with regimented personalities excel.
There are 5 bases and each has a different work culture. Investigate bases and management before selecting your base. Management in Atlanta has an agenda????????????
Commuting difficult do to employers flights always being oversold and not being permitted to jumpseat on Delta or other airlines..
Must be flexible, and love working with the public, stressful when passengers experience delays and cancellations.
Commute challenging and stressful, Expect to wait at the airport several hours trying to commute, On average unable to board flights due to oversold flights and no standby seats being available, Some Managers best avoided.
The pay is dismal, especially considering the amount of responsibility and stress a dispatcher takes on and the workload you are given. The union seems weak and uninterested in doing anything of substance outside of helping you in a catastrophe. That said, the company does seem like a great place to work; it's full of friendly, diverse, hard-working, and intelligent people. The culture is great.
Scheduling has some downsides, especially if you're stuck at low seniority, but it's pretty optimized when you look at it reasonably. Besides, you won't be at the low end of the totem pole for long - people tend to outgrow the role fairly quickly and move on to better paying companies. 4 10-hour days/week with some shift-trade flexibility and choice (eventually) over which 10 hours you work. You might start work at 0245. Or 0430. Or 0800. Or 1400. It all depends on what line you get in the quarterly bid. If you're there for the flight benefits (because you're definitely not there for the money), you should have ample opportunity to make use of them if you know how to work it out. NOTE: no buddy passes.
Internal advancement is definitely a thing here, which is great. Unfortunately, unless you have a management degree you still won't be making much money (if you did have a management degree, why did you get a dispatch certificate?). To all managers, here and everywhere else: meaningful raises are made of dollars, not cents.
Flight benefits, experience, exciting atmosphere, feeling like your work and industry matters
Money, Money, Money, Money, it's not everything but lack of it surely is.
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – Romulus, MI – January 25, 2018
There was not a lot of work that you could do because of the base that you are in. Anyone based in Detroit and on reserve was getting the short end of the stick. People that has been with the company for 10 plus years were going back on reserve. You would pretty much have to transfer to another base if you wanted to have some type of work life balance. The benefits are cool when you are able to use them and have the money to do so. This job is basically for someone that may have just graduated from college and not quite sure of what they want to do and are looking for something to get into. It's hard to take care of your responsibilities with the pay and you would need to get another job.
All in all the job is straight. I am glad I was able to see how it would be like to be a flight attendant and I did.
Free travel across the US and discount on other country travel
Pay, not enough work in certain bases, high turn over
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 5, 2018
If you are retired and didn't have to worry about money this industry would be great! However, the pay is so poor that it is almost impossible to survive on what your pay is. They put a ton of time and money into training and my guess their turnover would be reduced if they increased the pay to a livable income.
Get to see the world and meet a lot of great people
First Officer, Minneapolis (Former Employee) – Eagan, MN – December 21, 2017
Strong culture with a friendly environment. However at times training scheduling was not coordinated. Left for my own personal reasons. Good company, however was a good fit for me at this point in time. I would however recommend this company to anyone who is interested in pursuing their career in Aviation.
Endeavor is a diverse and fun company to work for. A professional yet laid back environment that allows you to use multiple skills. You meet new people everyday while working in a team building setting. There’s never a dull moment!

Tech Ops Heavy Check Manager, MRO (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City and Minneapolis – October 21, 2017
I can only say good things about Endeavor Air. Although it is a regional airline, it feels like and is ran like a major airline with high caliber and competent senior leadership. It is owned by Delta Airlines and has the good fortune of having experienced former major airline management running it. The VP of maintenance and the Director of maintenance and planning are excellent leaders.
Endeavor is and up and coming Airline and the leader when it comes the Regional Airline business. It has gone through many changes over the years and a great stepping stone for somebody looking to get into the airline business and have a progressive career.
Stable company with good benefits and pay
The culture is not my ideal environment but great for many others
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – August 17, 2017
This is not a career company, but more of a stepping stone or place to retire and enjoy the benefits. The industry is fast paced and constantly changing, you must be flexible and understanding. Your first six months to a year will be nightmare, low pay, terrible schedules being on call. But once you get past that its much easier and you can start to create your schedules and regain a social life.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 17, 2017
While I did appreciate the opportunity I feel that the company wasnt for me. I dont feel like managemement is very envolved. I feel that the company leaves you to figure out things on your own. I really wish it was more team related. They also promise you 75 hours per month and dont give you the full 75 per month.
