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

    Pros

    A definite pro was being able to trade days off with other employees. I was able to string them together to take long periods of time off. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Working in the inclement weather. Sometimes I wasn't able to get on a flight that I wanted too but, that didnt happen often. With good planning you can usually get to to where you want to go.
