    I have been working at Tam Brazilian Airlines part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Travel benefits,friends. I met great peolple there.

    Cons

    I`ve worked as a Bilingual Reservation Agent for 3 years. Low salaries, stressful shifts, working on holidays and weekends, crap managers and leaders. Promotions based on you know, not your skills or seniority. It pays almost half of salaries if compared to others carriers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creat career plans, with promotions based on your skills and experience, not on you know inside the company. Improve salaries.

    I have been working at Tam Brazilian Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The biggest Brazilian airline; opportunity of flying long-haul flights; do not sell food and beverage to customers yet

    Cons

    no appropriate career plan; flights attendants do not receive any extra payment for the languages spoken; no job stability; no bidding for flights; no adequate space for resting during airport standbys; flights attendants can be downgraded from long-haul flights to short-haul flights, even after years of working on long-haul flights only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is only worried about making profit, not about flight attendants' satisfaction and well-being. Overall, flight attendants do not feel proud of working for TAM Brazilian Airlines, e.g. due to the lack of job stability.
