    Great benefits but the union takes a lot in dues and abandons any real time you need them.

    Pros

    Flight benefits and the ability to transfer from work areas provides the ability to never get too bored at work.

    Cons

    Don't get sick! Every day you use counts as a point and you get disciplinary action up to and including termination. Unless you know the right people, you get hung out to dry.

    Pros

    Flight benefits are great when you have the time time to use them althought they are on standby basis only. great for family too.

    Cons

    Never know when the next round of layoffs are going to come, espicially if you are part-time. Layoffs used to be determined on seniority now it is part-time first then full time. We have 25 year part time employees being furloughed while 3 year full time employees hold a position.

    Pros

    The flight benefits are really great(if you can get on and if there's an empty seat). The co-workers are really cool and fun to work with. Being around the airplanes is also interesting and enjoyable at times.

    Cons

    Can be very stressful with trying to get the planes to depart on time and being around a loud and dangerous environment. Loading and unloading aircraft can be rough sometimes too.

    Management does not allow for initiative. Just follow and no questions

    Pros

    Great health benefits flexible schedule

    Cons

    Salary does not provide for decent living. Most employees struggle to pay basic necessities. Cannot afford to take advantage of flight benefits due to no extra cash after bills are paid

    A good company to work with with great benefits

    Pros

    Most of the benefits the company provide are competitive topped off by the flight benefit which are very generous. For the most part work expectations provides for a dedicated employee to maintain a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    At times there is the impression that you need to be part of a "club" to get ahead and prosper. If one manage to pass that threshold the opportunities become available.

    Good company to work for great benefits

    Pros

    The flight benefits can't be beat and the job is not difficult at all.

    Cons

    Low pay would be the only con really. The flight benefits make up for the low pay, but if you are not using the benefits or do not fly, then there is no reason to work for USAir or any airline with minimum wage starting salary.

    Great benefits if you can handle the management and little pay

    Pros

    Great flight benefits, medical benefits and mostly good people to work with in the IT Department. Easily able to change schedule and trade shifts.

    Cons

    flight benefits are all stand by basis, the IT department has nepotism when hiring for upper level positions. HR is for the company and not for the employee, so beware if you need to go to HR with an issue. The pay is cut way down because they decided that the flight benefits out weigh the pay.

    Decent place.

    Pros

    First of all, the company is in a great location as Tempe and the Greater Phoenix area is a wonderful place to live. The airline industry is very interesting to work in. It is a challenging environment to work in, but satisfying. The flight benefits are also a plus as I consider this part of my benefits package. Overall positive working environment.

    Cons

    As we all know, the airline industry is very volatile right now with rising fuel costs so there is always a threat of cutting sercvice which would mean downsizing for the entire company. Salaries also are not the most competitive.
