    I worked at United Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1) Flight Benefits
    2) Fed for $.50/day
    3) Immediate supervisors in most instances were former line grunts who generally understood your job and were more on your side than their bosses who probably never lifted a finger and pretend to understand your job.
    4) Flight benefits
    5) Profit sharing

    Cons

    Pay was awful, profit sharing was a disgrace (instead of doing it the right way where everyone gets an equal cut, only a percentage of total pay was given, so the hard workers in the cooler making barely minimum wage get barely anything, the front office people who sit and did nothing but brought home more $$ got more. When I questioned this arrangement, all I was told was that they deserved more because of their pay). Management used be great during the Continental era, then the merger came and TORQUE (ask any of the old UA and CO DEN folk what that means) made a silver anniversary return and sUA loyalists to the old reich did all in their power to push out sCO folk, whether it was by coercion or fabrication. Management was slow at hiring people and many of us were pretty much begged hand and foot to come in for 6th days. Management didn't care if you were more qualified for the job than somebody else if you weren't a favorite of them, the favorite always won out. Rules were never applied equally if a favorite was involved. All in all, if you weren't a favorite of management, it will never matter how much blood, sweat, and heart you give them, it will never be enough and they would salivate for something that they could use to get rid of you, even if it was fabricated.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the sCO days. They were better and you had happier people that even if they didn't really enjoy coming to work, they faked the smile better than the post-merger days.

    I worked at United Airlines part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good camaraderie at work, flexibility with work time

    Cons

    you wont feel loved by the company. You're just a "paid personnel" for them. Promotions are almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    give more love:)
