98 % good company to work for , but...................

Reservations Agent (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I worked at American Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompany kept its promise to recall me after 9/11 business slump and furlough. They even kept me on after closing my office, and I thought my only option was a layoff in 2002.
American Airlines did its best to stay out of bankruptcy, but the unions declined major pay and benefits cuts time after time. Thank God I wasnt in a union. Now AA is in bankruptcy and the courts will decide who gets what pay, and who keeps their job... It's a tough cutthroat business.

ConsManagement is asking more and more productivity for less and less pay and benefits since 2009.
Front line level management is a bit more dis-organized since positions were cut.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
