    I have been working at United Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I started working for UA since February 2017 and I am absolutely loving it. This is my 4th airline to work for as a flight attendant and the people here are the biggest reason I chose UA to work at until I retire! I am overwhelmed by the welcoming atmosphere and all the fun we have on flights and layovers.

    Cons

    Depending on your base you might have to be on straight reserve for a while.

    Pros

    The people I train with are good people amf thr trainers are awesome

    Cons

    I feel that there should be just one week of classes and the rest of the 4 weels of training should be hands on. If people are like me the best way I learn is if I am out there learning hands. Other than that united is awesome
