What is paid time off like at United Airlines?

Pros

They say if you’re doing something you love you’ll, never feel like you’ve worked a day in your life! I couldn’t agree more because I absolutely love being a Flight Attendant and rarely consider it work, even though I’m a very reliable employee! Flexible schedule, paid holidays, 45 days of vacation, exceptional health and travel benefits, adventurous co-workers! Have had some amazing experiences traveling the world and meeting people from all walks of life! It’s been an incredible journey with United Airlines all these years! Retiring after 31 fun filled years in August.

Cons

Delays due to weather, etc., cancellations due to mechanical issues and shortage of employees, COVID. Not many cons, other than world events that impact the airline industry.

Advice to Management

Keep up the Excellent work steering United in a positive, successful direction! Grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of our United family!

Does United Airlines offer massages?

Pros

Free coffee and decent winter parka

Cons

Lower level management encouraged to manage by intimidation. Getting around written policy by loop holes is the norm. When employees know their boss has their back, the team culture succeeds every time.

Advice to Management

Productivity can be greatly improved if you adapt the mindset of support staff members with respect as if they were your own family.

Does United Airlines offer relocation assistance?

Pros

The benefits package is amazing. Medical, dental, vision, 401k, free meals, and all the typical benefits are included. Plus space available flights are free anywhere domestic for the employee, their children under 26, parents, and one extra person. International flights carry a small fee to cover taxes which averages around $40 per person, round trip. These flights are unlimited. My family and I took over 200 flights within a year of my hiring.

Cons

Work hours are often long and without any real breaks. Burnout rates are pretty high. The hourly pay is also low for line employees, with many making minimum wage or much less than their skills and workload are worth. Right now, due to COVID, the entire company is at a standstill and many are losing their positions, promotions, or jobs entirely. Outlook for the future is bleak.

The benefits package is amazing.

Does United Airlines offer dental insurance?

Pros

The benefits are great including top medical, dental, vision, stand-by flying.

Cons

United has a problem with onboarding remotely and with manager treatment of employees. They do not have a process to onboard employees remotely leaving new employees untrained and setting them up for failure in the first few months of employment. Managers yell at employees.

Advice to Management

Please allow new employees who are onboarded remotely an extra month to learn the position. Please send managers to training bon how to manage employees and do not tolerate bullying of employees.

Does United Airlines offer family leave?

Pros

Health benefits for both part and full time, company will train you for multiple departments, free flights for employee and family

Cons

In current environment, many people moved from full time to part time workers. You will be trained in many departments, but when you find one you love, you may not be able to stay there. The company will move you according to their wants.

Advice to Management

Make more of an effort to let employees work in the area they want to be in.
