Charter Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – November 12, 2018
If you live at home with mom’s and dad or have at least 3 other roommates to spilt the bills with (COL in Miami is HIGH!!!) and just want to see every corner of the world then Miami Air is for you! I started when I was 20 and left shortly their after because I was ready to buy a house and make adult financial decisions and Miami Air’s flight attendant salary would not afford me that option. On the flip side if you are a bored housewife with a husband who takes care of the household and wants you gone/or you need a break away from him this is a great place for that to happen as well! You will jet set every where and will be able to take awesome pics for those on social media to envy. You will form lifelong bonds with your fellow crew members and meet tons of interesting people along the way. You just will struggle financially while doing so. Aside from these elements Miami Air is a great place to see the entire globe for free!!
Being able to travel to every continent, crew members
Extremely low salary, gone for up to 2 weeks at at time, flying the back side of the clock overseas

Miami Air is a fun place to work but, advancement is tough. It would be nice to have more control of how much time we can work or not work. The pay is sufficient but, could be better. Due to the nature of the ad Hoc schedule flights can be added or taken away.
Traveled the world and great colleagues
Not very stable in regards to work hours., it’s either feast or famine.
This company defies logic. It is amazing that it is still in operation. It is NOT an unsafe airline, but the morale at this place is unbelievably low with the majority of workers itching to leave. Those who are perfectly fine are usually inept and are glad to be there because they could not survive anywhere else.
There is no succession planning and it is a mystery how promotions are granted or managers selected.
Pay is generally low, but it is even more so in some departments than others since it seems that each director demands the salary that he or she believes their team requires. It is also a mystery how the most stressful of departments receives the lowest pay.
Enjoyed Meeting all Employees while working in the HR Department
Human Resources Generalist (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – January 18, 2017
I was in charge of the Hiring process which led me to meet all the new hires and interviewing, recruiting and implementing HR Policies and procedures.
Every day was interesting while working in Human Resources. I really enjoyed getting to know more about the Employees and helped them with any issues they may have had. I also did the Enrollment Process with classes of up to 30 Employees at a time.
Fight Perks, Many Discounts, Learned alot working in the Airline
Having to terminate good people and hiring new ones at lower rates than previous.
Great training for Flight Attendants looking to enter the charter world. Learned how to effectively work with a union. Management was open to change. Charter allows you to fly anywhere, without the seniority issue. You can see the world, and i have.
Working at this company sullies the ideology of being a flight attendant. The pay is awful, and the hours are not worse. Though the flight crew receives 10 days off a month, you are then on standby for the rest of the month, the rest of the 20 days. No opportunities to switch trips with other flight crew. Supervisors micromanage everything.
I was able to travel the world and learned alot about the different cultures of the world. I learned alot about people and their wants and needs. My coworkers and the management were delightful. Good company.
The hardest part of the job was the long hours and different time zones, The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to travel and see the world.
