    Not a good experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsLearned some thing about the airline business.

    ConsThe pay was low and the work hour was long. The management was rude. Felt like I was treated as a object. By the time I left the company, most people who were hired at the same time also left. Some managers left too. Like the other one said the turn over rate was high in this company. Not recommend to work there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsCompany outlook is very stable. Food is great.

    ConsAlways feel behind the 8 ball. Never get the chance to enjoy any of the accomplishments before next crisis arrives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSuport your staff. Give them the resources not just promises.

    they could be so much better

    Manager (Former Employee)

    Prosexciting challenging career opportunities, but long hours. Depending on position pay is good or fair. If you like the airlines industry then these are great jobs.

    Consupper and mid management have issues when relating to employees. HR is there for the company not the employees. They could really excel and be a top company if they would get their systems under control, and revise their entire management style. There is little or no training for new hires. Prepare to spend a lot of time fire fighting. They tend to rotate CEO's often.. 3-5 year tenures.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up. You have very taltented employees who are very loyal but you will loose you best if practices do not change

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dying industry provides few growth opportunities amid huge cutbacks

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsCubicles are nice and computers are up to date. People are pleasant for the most part. Top management is trying to make things better, but it is difficult for them to do that with so many cutbacks.

    ConsEven though it is a large corporation, professionalism is lacking. There is no training for managers on how to be more effective and no training is provided for employees. There are few employee activities and those that exist are usually focused on asking employees to donate to charities. No raises were given to employees for about 10 years so it is difficult to give when you are not receiving.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to what is going on in the departments. Interview at least one employee per week to ask what improvements can be made. Don't wait until the exit interview.

    The Twilight Zone for sure

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGood people who are dedicated to their jobs, otherwise they would leave. They don't stay because of the pay, and they certainly don't stay because they're respected or treated well.

    ConsNo pay raises since 9/11. Only a select few are given pay increases, though for several years they company has given lip service to "trying" to work this issue out. Oddly, though, the executives get regular increases and huge bonuses. Executives need to come out of their cloistered area and talk to people. Better yet, LISTEN to people. Execs are completely tone deaf and insensitive to the low morale. NOT recommended as a place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome out of our ivory tower and listen to what the employees are trying to tell you. Company goals of "Respect" and "Trust" are not reflective of the reality of working there. Employees laugh cynically when they hear these statements.
