    I worked at Tam Brazilian Airlines full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are the biggest company in Brazil, they have the best medical plan, the salary is the first or second better airlines here in Brazil.

    Cons

    They are a messy, the company needs more organization, schedule is a mess , all the time change your flights, you can not organize your life coz they will change it , you have to work all the time with afraid , because the employers can "report" you for everything for your boss, they are very hard, at the TAM works like this: "do what I want and shut up or leave the company , here you have no time to speak, just read our fly book and work!" ...sad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more your employers , they are your eyes, the flight attendants knows what's is the best on the aircraft , they know what kind of meals we have time to do, but the most important, see your people like a people not like a robot.

    I have been working at Tam Brazilian Airlines part-time (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 (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.
