    I have been working at American Airlines part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Flight benefits start from Day One. Benefits offered to part-time. Full-time opportunities available. Can pick up extra hours easily.

    Cons

    Part-time shifts can be extended without notice, including same day extension. Training is not in-depth.

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The only reason I can think of working for this Company is for reasons of work schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    Sharply declining pay in "real" terms - most employees have experienced an 17% pay cut during Bankruptcy reorganization on top of a 30% pay cut back in 2003.
    Employees have seen "real" pay decline by almost 50% over the last decade.
    Pension plans have been "frozen" and no longer exist for future employees.
    Monthly Medical Insurance premiums have recently quadrupled.
    Travel benefits (the reason most people go to work for the airlines) are virtually worthless these days because you travel standby and nearly all flights these days are routinely oversold.
    Hostile Labor Relations
    Very poor overall employee morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management is beyond advice in my opinion. New Management is desperately needed.
    There needs to be a major overall of corporate culture at American if they are to survive long-term.
    Management contempt for employees is palpable.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
