    I worked at US Airways part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Part-time employees get the same fantastic benefits as full time, including paid vacation, sick time, holidays. Everything pretty much revolves around your seniority.

    Cons

    It's hard for me to find any real cons in working for US Airways as a Fleet Service Agent. The only thing that can come even close to a con for me would be having to work overnight or on weekends and holidays, if that is what your shift calls for, but shifts are bid by seniority and that is the nature of the beast, as airlines work 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue your excellent job of supporting your employees. Even though I was only a part-time Fleet Service employee, I felt more appreciated than when I worked for any other employer during my careers. The company was always showing support for it employees with little things that meant a lot to me, such as bringing in cake to celebrate a milestone, or just bringing in pizza on occasion just to say thanks for a job well done. I really miss working for US Airways after my retirement!

    Pros

    Demanding job with dynamic environment. If you want to travel and do something different almost every day, the engineering department is the place to be.

    Cons

    Work can be very stressful during mergers. Political environment can sometimes get into solving underlying problems. Wages are not that high as competitors, but that may change with merger with AA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees have worked very hard to make a successful merger with American Airlines. Don't forget them and make sure that the profits and benefits to all employees are in par with what upper management got out this deal. It is sad to see how the CEO's package is almost 400 more than what the average employee makes.

    Flight benefits are great, it's easy to swap shifts if you want a flexible schedule, pretty decent healthcare benefits

    Doesn't pay enough for the cost of living in the Washington DC area, too many managers and they all are not on the same page

    Pros

    Travel, travel, travel! Should be able to say the truth. That's what they are asking for

    Cons

    Not able to comment to a state you will be based. Do they really think you can survive on $11.00 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share with people why or why not they didn't get the job.
