    Pros

    Great travel benefits at that time.... though with the merge I think a lot of commuting issues came up.

    Cons

    Hard on the family life but if you can endure your time on reserve I believe the schedulers at my time of employment were willing to work with trades and other issues that arose. BUT if you are on reserve they find ways to try & trick you . KNOW YOUR UNION.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and management. The recognition that the contributions of every employee no matter what level in the company were crucial to the company's success built a foundation where everyone was truly working together. While pay was not so wonderful the benefits and work life balance afforded were well worth it.

    Cons

    Many talented people were lost in the process of the merger with United.

    Pros

    Flight benefits, better pay than many similar internships, opportunity to learn a lot, you get to play with multi-million dollar toys, plenty of travel opportunities and networking

    Cons

    Very few, some bosses are better than others, sometimes you're asked to do things that aren't very fun (remember you're an intern), Houston is VERY hot in the summer

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Good equipment. That is it.

    Cons

    Jeff Smisek has ruin the quality of this airline so he can get his merger bonus and get out. I am tired of hearing the complaints from passengers after a decade of nothing but compliments.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your front line employees. They will make or break you.
