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 have been working at American Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get to fly planes and travel.

    Cons

    Always away from family, they force you to work on your days off, crappy pay, almost all the captains you fly with initially are old, crusty, and horrible to fly with.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees

    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.
