Poor inflight management

Flight Attendant (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at American Eagle Airlines full-time for more than a year

ProsFlight benefits, health insurance is decent.

ConsYour inflight manager is a member of the union. When you go to your manager with a concern about discipline and they tell you to contact your union, there is a problem. Managers will treat you poorly if you do not support union activities. Managers never return emails. AA medical and your manager will punish you if you get sick. Crew scheduling is easy to work with. Most hotels in DFW area offer substantial discounts for AA/AE employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
