Flight benefits aren't what they used to be

I have been working at American Airlines

Pros

Free travel in coach after 5 years, no overtime expected, get to work around airplanes

Cons

It's hard to travel standby with a family due to lack of empty seats on planes. The salary for engineers will always be less than the industry average. Lots of paperwork. As an engineer you hit the career ceiling pretty fast unless you go into one of the limited number of supervisory roles.

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

    Pros

    flight benefits, Work from home

    Cons

    Very low pay, Dont care about your personal/home life. VERY hard to get time off for anything let alone use the flight benefits. Great Employees get overlooked. Trained to work in several departments at the same time with no pay increase at all. Not forgiving for tardiness even in emergency cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the outcries of employees they make your company work. Have more flexibility options employe's home life, especially if they have kids. Please increase the pay, Families cannot survive off of $10 an hour
