    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flight benefits, easy “job”, mostly fun people to work with

    Cons

    Legal to work long hour days, no recognition for being good at your job most of the time. Management has not been helpful when I’ve needed them, too many loopholes in contract, too many constant changes that employees cannot keep up with. It’s obvious the company cares more for management than employees represented by unions (flight attendants/pilots/maintenance).

    Advice to Management

    Have more managers over less flight attendants so that they can actually have time to help them when they need it.

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Travel benefits, schedule flexibility (after you gain seniority), overall easy going job, independent work environment

    Cons

    Its a big company. It does not care about your well being or safety. The job can be difficult due to the long hours, shift work, its not good if you need to be home a lot or have a consistent schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring managers with no experience in the field they are managing has been proven to be inefficient.
