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

Pros

Great recognition from other companies - and travel the world while you work

Cons

A shrinking company in a shrinking industry. Growth masks many problems, and American's are laid bare. Impossible to promote even the best people when they're shedding talent rapidly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have down sized every year for 12 years. The teams are too small and don't have enough leadership

    Good workout, but don't expect to make a fortune.

    I worked at American Airlines part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers; get to work around planes (if you like that sort of thing); lots of physical labor makes for a good workout; great travel benefits; freedom to do what you want during your downtime; lots of training and mobility potential (especially if you want to move to another part of the country)

    Cons

    Odd hours (our station was open from 4AM-12AM) possible; working in ANY condition (rain, snow, cold, fire, etc.), lots of loud noises and injury potential; small errors (i.e. driving tractor into wing antenna) will cost you your job (that stuff can cost more than your yearly salary), so be super careful; lots of downtime between flights can lead to boredom; you gotta' dump the crapper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know that price cutting is how you win the race, but you've got to invest a few more bucks in the employees' office comforts. Everything was jimmy-rigged over and over and barely surviving. Maybe you've improved that in the past few years.
