- 1.0Oct 26, 2017Flight AttendantCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsSan Francisco, CA
• Some of your coworkers are fun to be around & make you look forward to going to work. • The travel benefits (if you manage to get on the packed planes) are good. • Travelling the world as your job.
• Continental management has poisoned original United management's way of thinking. • H.R. couldn't care less about you, the employee. • While technically a "pro", medical & dental are more expensive & cover less than ever before. • Some employees (flight attendants in particular) are VERY cliquish & can be those "bad apples" you hear about. • The pay is terrible & in no way matches what they post as paying (unless you're very senior & work specific positions). • The odd & sometimes long hours can be tough on your body. (Look up 'Non 24') • It's hard to eat healthy when your only food options are airplane food, or airport food. • You aren't a member of a "family" anymore. You're a number. And that's it. • There's no growth as a flight attendant other than gaining seniority (unless you transfer to a management position).4

There are a lot of smart people within the company and a lot of motivation to pursue initiatives that will improve the company and the customer experience. The travel benefits are nice (though not as valuable as they once were given the current load factors).
Following the merger with Continental the opportunities to move between the divisions of the company are more limited and need to be aggressively sought by the individual if there is interest. There has also been a decline in the number of leadership roles (Director and above) which can make career progression challenging. The overall culture is still sorting itself out given last year's executive changes.
