    I worked at Mesa Air

    Pros

    Pass travel is good to have, no buddy passes though

    Cons

    Management is a joke, they along with the CEO could carelesa about their employees. Mesa is the lowest paid regional airline and the employee moral is very low.

    I have been working at Mesa Air full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Overall fairly good company. Understanding of family situations and worked with me during family issues. Union reps are pretty resourceful and knowledgeable of company policies and helpful in making sure policies are executed properly for employees. Friendly coworkers - I have had very few issues and feel like employees are like family.

    Cons

    Lack of communication with upper management. Base administrators can only provide us with so much detail when they have little amount of information themselves. Pay could be better.

    It got my feet in the aviation industry.
