    Former Employee - Aircraft Maintenance Technician (Mechanic)

    I worked at Continental Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)


    Good contract, good face-to-face relationships with supervision and good all-around experience overall! Great mechanics to work and learn with, for the most part!


    United showed up and destroyed the good working relationships between labor and supervision! Lies and deceit!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good, positive working relations is ALWAYS better than adversarial! When everyone can sit down together and talk about how to make the airline better, it can't fail! Unless, of course, higher management interferes!
