Not terrible but needs a lot of improvement in terms of leadership
Stores Clerk (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 13, 2019
This could be a great company. They are experiencing a lot of growth. The base in Atlanta needs some work to be done in the STORES department. Some of the clerks are EXTREMELY LAZY. AOG/COMAT is binned in the wrong location. Then when a mechanic needs it you have to go through hoops to find it.
The stores manager shows favoritism to the group that is mainly at the line. He does not communicate with people at the hangar much. There are 2 leads at 1 location WHICH DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE. There should be a lead at the line and at the hangar.
Leadership is really the only problem. The pay is not that good considering the responsibilities we as stores clerks have. I think everyone should be split up and forced to work with each other instead of the same people being in the same place EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Receiving of parts should be split between the line and hangar or 60% at the hangar and 40% at the line not 110% at the hangar. That only slows us down and ends up leaving work for 3rd shift. They really need a training regimen instead of showing people the bare minimum on how to do their job then throwing them in the fire.
The turnover rate is high due to the fact that people are lazy and the work environment is stressful because other coworkers try to pick up the work leftover. And it will be simple things left undone like putting gas in the vehicle before you leave. Its not like you even have to pay for the gas. The other thing is they don't take care of the vehicles or performance any type of regular maintenance they just let them break then that puts a strainmore... on the whole team because we're down a vehicle.
There is no profit sharing. More overtime would be nice as pilots get paid $37 and are allowed to get overtime yet stores clerks make more than twice as less as them. I'd work do this part time instead of full time because of the laziness and nonsense that goes on. The worst part about it all is that nothing is being done about it. I am already looking for another job and we just had a stores clerk leave in late January because she could not stand the unacceptable behavior that goes on. She was 1 of our hardest and best working people we had but they ran her off.less
Unlimited Flights with Delta Airlines & Endeavor Air, Decent insurance, lots of perks from being owned by Delta
Extreme lack of communication, lazy coworkers, abysmal pay scale, favoritism
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – January 5, 2019
Working at endeavor air was great. I love flying every day. The company was only allowed to have us fly maximum 16 hours per day and up to 6 days a week. They covered for our hotels in every location we flew too. The worst of flying is when there is bad weather and lots of delays.
Free flying domestic, discounted international flying
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 18, 2018
Ensuring the safety and comfort of passengers throughout all phases of flight can be a daunting task but when you have a company that cares for its employees it makes every day at work a day in paradise!
I would still be working there if not for my accident
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Romulus, MI – December 7, 2018
Workers are enjoyable, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I had complete confidence in the pilots and the aircraft. The maintenance department we're top notch.The management was fair and approachable.The job was fun!
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 3, 2018
The best thing about working here is the flight benefits and flexibility. On the other hand, the pay scale is extremely low for the amount of work expected and the stress that goes along with it. The company pretends to be part of Delta and follows their way of serving but does not pay Delta money. Most people leave after a year or two.

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.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 27, 2018
Endeavor airlines gives pilots and flight attendants a window into flying a major airline and opportunities to cross the bridge into those areas. The flight benefits are excellent and we were able to bid schedules to free up non-revenue travel.
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.
