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

    Pros

    Travel privileges; people; can flex time off with coworkers but not too often.

    Cons

    Cliques and some management say they are empowered but are not. HR sometimes hires the wrong people by who they know or by certain affiliations. work-life balance skewed. Pay raises. Got a union but no raises in years. The union doesn't suck but the workforce that dragged their feet while a merger went on with American Airlines did.

    Advice to Management

    Stop nepotism but neighborhood and spiritual affiliations and lifestyle ones and get the best people for the job and stop union busting. Made promises to merging employees we know from US Air that are too good to be true. Senior Execs get 400-500% pay increases while people on ground and in air fight to get $ and get nothing.

    I worked at US Airways full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were good - able to fly right away.

    Cons

    Environment was toxic! No Job Joy! Always reminded that there were MANY other people that would be willing take your place. YOU do not matter - the customers really don't matter - just make sure your sales are up and your call times were down. There are many agents that have been there far to long - very rude to customers - there were many times when I cringed listening to the agents being rude to customers on the phone. I was actually scolded because I said - "Is there anything else that I can help you with today?"
    Noun -verb - period. That does not always work. There should always be an exception to that rule.

    Advice to Management

    Make the agents feel like they matter - a little bit..... Treat the customers better.
    Make sure the supervisors are qualified to supervise......
