Current Employee - Flight Attendant in DFW, TX

I have been working at American Airlines part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Opportunity to see the world, flexible schedule

Cons

You need to be able to budget your life with around 900 per month, the payment is 20.85 per hour plus a per diem, on top of that they only guarantee you 76-86 hours per month, please remember that you have to pay the regular goverment and federal taxes plus union fees so your take home is about 900 per month. No overtime

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide the opportunity to work more hours as a new hire, after a potential candidate is investing time and their own money to stay in training for at least 8 1/2 unpaid weeks, spent own money to move, etc... It will be highly appreciate if the new hire can work more hours to put back money into their emergency fund.

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flying well maintained equipment, or at least maintained better than most regional airlines;
    working with some of the most experienced pilots in the industry, travel benefits... Really very few and far between (pros) at this point.

    Cons

    Low pay, employees are treated as crap, very low morale company wide, negative incentives, no fleet plan, low pay, employees over worked and under-payed, the lack of teamwork between managers and employees are astounding. Future is extremely dim for this airline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employee groups like crap; especially the ones that are certified by the FAA to provide a safe experience for your passengers. What is the sense in pitting one employee group against the other? Aren't we working for one common goal? Stop acting like longevity is a problem at our airline. Pilots and mechanics with experience are a plus to any airline operation and should be treated and compensated as such. Not everyone wants to fly or maintain a 777. The way this airline has been run lately is a disgrace to the legacy of the AMR cooperation, the American brand, and the American name. Speaking of disgrace.... The other airlines flying their equipment with the American Eagle logo, what a slap in the face to the employees that have built this company over the years. Outsourcing only works for a while, if at all! We have seen this time and time again, in all industry sectors. Stop allowing your shareholders and financial analysts to run the airline and operate an airline that employees, customers, and this country alike can be proud of. Then your shareholders in turn will reap the benefits of a profitable and successful carrier.

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

    Pros

    A this time. Morale is at all all time low I've never seen this company with such employees are so disgruntled after 28 years it's terrible sight to see because of most of these people will lost many benefits also pensions and their retirement medical have been taken away by the company sick days vacation You name it i've never seen a company that in my opinion hated their employees American Airlines management hates their employees but they like to benefit from their employees labor

    Cons

    Most Co workers will work together

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more experts in Management that know the Airline Business instead of coming from McDonald's style management company and quit hiring people that have no heavy jet exp it seem that upper management hiring people that are no qualified to do the job it's been like that for a long time needs to be a change
