    I worked at US Airways (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They merged w/American Airlines who I am trying to get employed by. I hope they've kept some of US Airways employee ethics, which were extremely high. A class airline all the way around.

    Cons

    You had to pay your own way to/from interviews and they didn't provide room/board during training. You actually had to have your own accommodations.
    Also, they merged with American AIrlines. US Airways was WONDERFUL by itself!

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Parker, I hope that you bring some US Airways with you to American! HOW COULD YOU??? US Air was the best airline in the WORLD!!

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Pay & benefits are good
    The customers are great

    Cons

    They lacked teamwork and would argued over who should do which tasks.
    Since they have been there since America West so I don't see it improving any time soon.

    I never got the free travel since I was new.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps some team building courses would help - and defining who does what.
