    I have been working at Korean Air full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There could be a lot worse ways of earning a living I suppose.

    Cons

    The company still exists and nobody has the guts to stand up and do anything to change its ways.

    Advice to Management

    You only exist because of your employees. If you treated your employees with just a fraction of the respect we are forced to treat our "customers", that would make a huge difference.

    I worked at Korean Air full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flight benefits - stand by tickets.

    Cons

    Forget the flight benefits because you'll never be able to fly anywhere as you'll be a slave to their strict Korean culture.

    As an American you will be shocked at how they treat newcomers with no respect and expect you to please them until you gain their respect.

    It's even worse if you're Korean, I witnessed so many coworkers cry and be mistreated by customers and the employees are expected to always apologize and then the managers don't back up their employees.

    Work is just handed down by managers, most of them do not do their own jobs and ask others to do it for them; They are power hungry. Also, managers never acknowledge hard or good work from others but simply take the credit as their own hard work and only criticize others.

    The top managers only come from Korea and are not local staff.

    Please do not work here, you will be miserable and feel worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work with your team and not just boss everyone around. Stop acting so entitled and listen to your staff.
