I worked at US Airways full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of Flying Time
Reserve lines are pretty junior
If you want to fly extra there is always plenty of flying

Cons

Cannot drop a trip without picking up another to replace it
If you drop a trip, the one you pick up must touch a day of the dropped trip. If you drop a weekend trip then the trip you pick up needs to touch a day of the weekend.

    I have been working at US Airways full-time

    Pros

    Excellent training programs, fast paced and challenging, great travel benefits. Working around AC! Excellent communication from corporate management.
    If you have a good work ethic and want to advance there are plenty of career opportunities. You will never be bored.

    Cons

    Pay is not the best, okay for younger and older workers or two income families. No way to support a single income family. More constantly changing rules and regulations than any other industry for much lower salary. The stress of knowing your job is on the line every day if anything goes wrong on your shift (which often is filled with WARM BODIES that don't care and are only interested in the flying benefit) can be overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better pay structure form the bottom to the top might help attract a better class of worker. The constant change of personnel from managers down with the associated training costs and possible costs associated with damaged AC from inexperienced workers could be offset with a more stable work force. Perhaps a change in flying benefits in exchange for pay like an increasing number of passes per year starting low and going to the current level over say 5 or 8 years? A system like that might keep the employee that is only interested in the flying benefit from coming on board in the first place.

    Pros

    Globally recognized company, a lot of great people people work here

    Cons

    Pays below market average, union culture, depending on the department-not a lot opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting the union step all over the company culture, pay at least market average, invest in top talent so that they will stay
