I worked at Northwest Airlines as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

If you get in as an employee benefits are pretty decent.

Cons

If you are a contractor there is absolutely no hope for you depending on the employer you go in with. Difficult to get into NWA as they like to keep most of their contractors as contractors, not convert them to employees.

    Pros

    Passes to travel, great heathcare coverage, excellent vacation time with lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    Too large and union structure kept advancement opportunities to a minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Mgmnt hands were really tied for being able to do anything because of the union.
