Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

As a flight attendant is was able to see most of the U.S. as well as Canada and Mexico. Met wonderful people from all over the world.

Cons

The pay is terrible, management is completely out of touch about what really goes on at the airport. Long days and short nights. I stayed exhausted 24/7.

Advice to Management

The employees care as much if not more than management about the success of American. The employees ARE the airline! It's really embarrassing apologizing for stupid management decisions a dozen times a day.

    I worked at American Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great flight benefits, diverse employee base, very fast paced, get to work with some very smart people and learn a lot in a short time.

    Cons

    Lots of politics! Full flights so using flight benefits are difficult. Very long hours at office, lots of work trips which are not ideal if you have family with young kids. Compensation is not in line with work hours

    Advice to Management

    Your unions are dictating the future of this company. You need to re-energize your workforce and you need to hold all employees accountable - union and non union. Sleeping on the job should be a terminate on the spot and lose all benefits offense.....maybe then you might get some work done on midnight shifts.
