I worked at US Airways full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of Flying Time
Reserve lines are pretty junior
If you want to fly extra there is always plenty of flying

Cons

Cannot drop a trip without picking up another to replace it
If you drop a trip, the one you pick up must touch a day of the dropped trip. If you drop a weekend trip then the trip you pick up needs to touch a day of the weekend.

    I have been working at US Airways full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's an airline job. For those who have been bitten, it's pretty much like every other airline. Flight benefits can be a pro, but flights are always full so it can be difficult to fly standby. There is a 20% discount if you want to pay for your ticket and fly positive space. Nothing outstanding about this company, but nothing that is horrible by comparison to other airlines.

    Cons

    Promotions to management are often based on inter-office politics rather than filling positions with the right people. There are also way too many managers and directors than necessary. Also, there is an 8% cap on how much of a raise you can get if you get promoted. This makes a lot of good people not want to get promoted because it's not worth the small raise to take on the added work load, hours and responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Trim back the number of managers/directors and better select your leaders based on experience and ability to lead rather than based on politics.

    I have been working at US Airways full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Free travel
    - Per diem
    - Ability to pick up extra hours
    - 11 days off a month and possibility for more

    Cons

    - Pay (hourly rate sounds good but does not add up too much without working on days off)
    - Having to work on your days off
    - Uniforms could be more attractive

    Advice to Management

    Have more transparency with workers. People at the top of the totem seem to keep big decisions under wraps until they feel ready to reveal why or what they are doing.
