I have been working at American Airlines part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I love the people I work with. They is a variety, you never work with the same person/people twice in a row unless you want to. It can be a very fun job, going all over the place in the world.

Cons

Long hours, many nights in hotel rooms, and some obnoxious passengers.

Advice to Management

Why can we all share the sacrifice? Stop trying to make millions even during the bankruptcy. The gap between the top executive and lay employees is unbelievably enormous and it is only getting bigger.

    I worked at American Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was good during the era when an employee was able to get on planes by flying standby.

    Cons

    Limited training or pending to grow employees. Office building and office equipment are very dated. Lots of uncertainty as company is moving through bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    Too much indecision on implementing IT projects. Too much 'customization to how AA wants it' on off the shelf products causing long delays in implementation or ends up being cancelled.

    I worked at American Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Travel privileges, Good Pay, the fact that we can travel every weekend for cheap is pretty cool.

    Cons

    Slow paced environment especially if you are a new hire, you have to ask for work or no one will bother coming up to you to ask how you are doing. Pretty sensitive about the flight benefits so even if you violate a policy unintentionally, you will be released. Because of the restructuring, managers who moved from one department to the other seemed to be confused about their job responsibilities and their role in the new department.

    Advice to Management

    The management should be clear on their vision and long term goals.
