    StarStarStarStarStar Current Flight Attendant in Houston, Texas

    401k 3% match, and they give 3% for free. Total is a free 6%. Flight benefits are the best in the industry. Free standby pass travel for yourself, parents and children (up to 26yo) and one other designated person a year. In addition, you get 24 one-way buddy passes for your friends. You also get access to standby on other carriers for yourself. Medical, dental and vision insurance are all pretty great and they offer a ton of options for your specific situation. United has a scholarship program for their employees and also an employee assistance program for employees who fall on hard times like natural disasters or medical emergencies. They really take care of you here.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Houston, Texas

    Although the costs of the benefits package have increased slightly over the years and the options have become more limited, United still has some of the best benefits in the airline industry. I can personally attest that the benefits package have made my quality of life much better. The major complaint I have is the workmen's compensation system and bidding for time off based on seniority.

    High out of pocket.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Chicago, Illinois

    I save on average $300/month in prescription costs alone with their health insurance as opposed to my previous employer. The travel benefit alone is something you can't put a price tag on.
