    Pros

    Very impressive.... The flight attendants that came to recruit in PHX. Proffessional, big smile, make you feel welcome. Please be your self.

    Cons

    It is true it is hard to get the flight attendant job. The process is long and you really have to be patient. In your heart this is what you really want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the flight attendant job selective and hired polite good manners people.

    Pros

    The benefits of U.S. Airways of fling for free as standby passenger and the customer experiences that you have on a daily base.

    Cons

    The long term of expanding with the company is that you would have to move to grow with the company. the airport never closes you work all year around.

    Pros

    Union: because you will need them

    Cons

    Reserve system: full-time reserve, on call 24hrs on duty days
    Supervisors: are either unavailable and can't be found, then when you do get a hold of them they are no help.
    Your whole life is centered around them and because of the merger things are always inconsistent
