What is the best part of working at the company?You can move up easily in the company.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?there can be staffing issues where there are not enough people to work. Mgmt can be difficult because they will not discipline people consistently. You do have to deal with the general public, so they can have their own issues as well, that are unpredictable. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Its can be fun. You can meet a lot of different people and build very strong friendships. Several employees have started relationships and even gotten married. You may have to work outside in the weather and there is nothing that you can do about that. Just dress for the weather the best you can. Show up on time, do your job and learn as much as you can.What is a typical day like for you at the company?the day begins with an employee briefing about how the day should go and you are given your work assignments. everyone passed training so you know what to do. the planes come in, work them, they leave, sit down relax until the next plane comes in. That is basically it until the end of your shift.

Great entry level within an airline

Working here you’ll get an experience how it’s like working for an airline. Team work, and leadership skills. Easy job, 10 years of experience. If you have good work ethic you’ll enjoy it. Don’t let management stress you out. Job follow the rules come in on time and you’ll be fine.

High Turnover

Training sucks!! Be careful your in an environment were safety first but the trainers really don’t teach you the best way to complete the tasks. Just expect you to jump and injury yourself. I watch many older employees hurt on the first day and never return to work.

Typical ups and downs of a union environment. Safe secure job that is not that hard. However NO ONE will advance on merit or hard work. Lowest paid as it pertains to company structure.


Fun coworkers

Extreme weather conditions / heavy lifting

I’ve never witnessed the laziest, unsupervised, I don’t care about my job I’m here for the perks type personnel. It’s also a 90 percent ethnic environment. This company needs an HR overhaul. The profanity, the lack of effort, the culture. Horrible


Flight benefits


Weather conditions / lack of supervision of employees

Cool to work not very helpful

Enjoyed the fast pace and downtime . Didn’t agree with how they will fire you on the spot for something that happened 15days prior. The benefits are great . They don’t help you keep your job.

Fine company with some room to move up.

My job was meaningless busy work but there was room to move into other positions. The company was fine and they treated everyone pretty well. Most of the management were decent people.


Extremely easy


meaningless work - you will pretend to be busy just so people dont bother you

Never Again

They want you to work way too hard for so little pay. They look to fire you for any and every reason. I left 2 weeks into on-the-job training. It’s not worth the headache. The flight benefits were the only good part about the job


Flight benefits


Pay, management, favoritism

Eh! Is all I gotta say

Was good at first, but they do not give second chances so make the best of it while you can! They fired me over a dumb reason, the flight benefits were amazing, but I wouldn’t go back.

Fun and Productive workplace.

Be precisely on time and stay over on your shift if needed. Making sure things run smoothly, and the plane is on time. Getting baggage on and off the plane in a timely manner. Meeting customer's needs and making their flight as pleasant as possible.


free lunches, long breaks.


heavy lifting, long shifts.

The PHL site is awful. Very unprofessional leadership. Nepotism and Favoritism is prevalent. Gossiping is the norm at the location. People are in leadership with no leadership or soft skills..... it's a joke! There is also little to no diversity, I'm very surprised that a company that is an affiliate of American Airlines is so second rate


Free Flights Day One


Poor management, no communication, low pay

What is the best part of working at the company?Part time available - but that did not help with flexibility in scheduling. Very strict and basically you want the job for the flight benefits but you are not really able to use them. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Management that is uncommunicative and co-workers stabbing you in the back. The devision of the parent airline which is American and Piedmont airlines - workers are devastating to work with. They are unsupportive and do not wish you well. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Work and don’t make waves. They do not stand by their claims of equality or age discrimination.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Work and get ready to be corrected

Amazing Management, Not Great Pay

As a Flight Attendant with Piedmont airlines you have amazing management behind you to help at any given time. The union is an amazing support system as well. When I started at Piedmont I was told the company is like a "family" which I have heard before at other companies. I have genuinely never experienced a work family like Piedmont. You really get what you give on your trips and with your interations with other employees and passengers. The pay is something that you can not live off of alone. You must either live in a crashpad with 6 other people or you need another job or someone else supporting the bulk of your financial obligations. The job day to day is amazing, but really tough when youre struggling financially..


great management, good team enviroment


long days, bad pay

Nice job

Part time schedules are not really part time you are stuck with 30hrs a week.The schedules are bad so you can't trade to be able to double shift at least one day a week.

Caring company where I enjoyed going to work

The leadership cares about each employee. I would work there again. Pros are that employees really care about each other and hard work is recognized. And can move up quickly if a hard worker. Only con is pay. Benefits are really good and flight benefits are great. But if you expect to be paid top of field you won’t be. Trade off is stable and friendly work environment where high achievers are recognized and given lots of freedom
