  • 401K Plan  (119 comments)

    “100% matching up to 4% of base salary, plus 2% company contribution that fully vests after 3 years. They use Fidelity. Pretty good plan.”

  • Employee Discount  (93 comments)

    “Free standby travel. If there are empty seats on the plane, employees and their parents and children can fly for free. Priority is based on tenure...”

  • Health Insurance  (67 comments)

    “Decent coverage through BCBS for around $150/mo for the most comprehensive plan. You get a $48 monthly credit if you don’t use tobacco.”

    Best thing is the unlimited, free travel for yourself and your family. Also good insurance.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Analyst in Chicago, Illinois

    Terrible, embarrassing parental leave policy. No day-to-perks. Stingiest company I’ve ever seen. 100% 401k match up to 4% of base salary 10-15 days PTO starting Little to no paid parental leave Standby travel for employee, spouse/friend, and parents. Based on tenure with the company. Mediocre benefit because they’re pretty good at filling their domestic flights with revenue passengers. Good if you’re single and can go anywhere at a moments notice. Do not expect any pizza parties or company-paid happy hours or anything. Zero financial outlay for employees that’s not directly related to performance of duties.

    The benefit package of United Airlines is good. The travel benefit and health insurance are the base things to consider. The pay depends on whether you are with the management, salaried or union group.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Maintenance Training Scriptwriter in Houston, Texas

    Overall, it was a pretty good 401(k). They had a matching plan and a variety of investment plans designed to suit your needs, depending on the level of involvement you wanted to have with your investments. So that's a good thing.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Houston, Texas

    Pretty decent insurance coverage and travel benefits if you are very flexible with your travel plans and desire to travel a lot

    The best thing about the benefits of working at United is the flight benefits! Although you have to fly “space available” and boarding priority is seniority-based, there is still nothing better than being able to fly wherever you want for a small service charge that’s deducted from your paycheck- imagine flying first-class to London, round trip, for $200! Plus deep discounts on hotels and other airlines.
