It is an exciting job full of curve balls!
Flight Attendant (Current Employee), Newark, NJMarch 1, 2014
Pros: great perks, free travel, meeting new and exciting people, travel the world
Cons: lonely, hard to stay on a strict diet, miss alot of holidyas, not very much family time.
typical day in aviation is unpredictable ! however when I am not putting bags into overhead bins, calming crying babies, or acting out my safety demo, I am probably laying in a comfy bed in a clean hotel somewhere in the world!

Overall it could be a great place to work
Technician (Current Employee), Cleveland OhioFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: compensation, and flight benefits
Cons: the operation could be streamlined
My day usually consists of checking to make sure everything is working as it should and fielding tech support calls from other cities. If I can't fix the problem over the phone, a service call is set up. I have learned over the years to take nothing for granted when talking to non technical people on the phone. One of the most rewarding parts of the – more... job is when I can either fix the problem over the phone, or indeed have to make a service call. I take pride in the fact that I supply my internal customers with the tools they need to excel at their jobs. – less

Horrible Management
HR Service Rep (Former Employee), ChicagoFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: free travel
Cons: often furloughing employees, bad culture and always scrambling and not transparant
If you want to travel the world for almost free, this is the company to work for. If you want to work for horrible managers that do not provide direction, I encourage you to apply for this position. The key words you should look for is Employee Service Center (ESC). Working in the ESC is not a career path. Hold off on applying for this job and look – more... at other opportunities at UAL. – less

Very unique, fun, challenging profession.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee), San FranciscoFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: great benefits, co-workers, layovers, having a specific, unique occupation.
Cons: unforeseen delays, managing angry crowds, long trips without rest, jet lag fog.
Very professional atmosphere, friendly employees through out. Great opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. Very challenging at times due to unforeseen situations but the training United provided was more than ample to know how to handle any given issues. Hardest part of the job was having to calm unruly passengers during weather delays or – more... seating issues or anything out of your realm of control. Best part of the job was the comaraderie between the pilots and the flight attendants, the layovers, and meeting so many different people. – less

Productive and interesting work assisting customers
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: flight benefits
Cons: scheduling
Typical day was very busy,boarding planes and assisting passengers with daily nbeeds.I learned a lot about the travel industry the pro's anbd con's and the inner workings of the daily operation.Management was challenging, because there were so many different mangers per area it was a constant change.My co-workers were helpful,funny and great.The hardest – more... part of the job was the seniority, if you had a low seniority you never wood be off in the summer or have weekends off and you could forget about a holiday.The hours low seniority carried was horrible,If there was any bad weather anywhere all agents had at least a 4hr mandatory shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was the Flight Benefits. Working for the airlines,you get the chance to fly all over the world. – less

An airline that made USAir look like a well oiled machine.
Tech Ops (Former Employee), Newark, NJFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: typical good benefits, exciting work of live aircraft in a well supported facility
Cons: indifference of administrative personnel, seeming lazy and uniformed, thomas madden
After a LONG career at US Airways, I jumped through all BUT ONE of the administrative hoops and indifference a new employee could be asked to tolerate. Had it not been for a narcissistic blow hard of a training coordinator in EWR...I'd would've been there at right about one year. Unfortunately, this aforementioned pin head was willing to HANG ME OUT – more... TO DRY...for his inability to pull his head out of butt to correct an issue that prevented me from properly participating in my initial training. With the critical nature of the beast at the time being the complicated intigration of the fleets, policies and paperwork of United and Continental Airlines, this nothing less than stellar clown of a training buffoon shrugging off my NON-ACCESS to CBT was the FINAL STRAW to what administration laid at my feet. There's only so much a new hire can be expected to solve on his own in the likes of an international airport as complicated as EWR. Screw you Thomas Madden! – less

Pros: fast paced environment and days literally flew by.

In turn also worked with IT Regional Managers reporting up to our director. Created respective IDs for new employees as well as contractors.

It was, once a great job.
Lead Ramp Service (Former Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: slaries and bennefits--flight bennefits
Cons: weather, new company
United was a great company to work for prior to filing bankruptcy. Even while we struggled at times through bankruptcy, it was understood why some changes had to take place.
Smile on your co-workers face were common. We enjoyed being there, and enjoyed working with one another. The weather, at times could be difficult to deal with in Chicago. But, when – more... you work with a group of people and face the different challenges, you get the most satisfaction when you see what you were able to accomplish.
The merger with Continental Airlines has been difficult to say the least. Moral and the feeling that we were assets to the company are gone. The employees once had input and were considered valuable to the corporate plan. That's not true any longer. – less

Customer Service Director (Former Employee), Washington, DC/Pittsburgh, PAFebruary 7, 2014
Micromanaging 101. Slave labor. Horrible stress.
Company was great in early 90's went down hill after 2000. Pass travel virtually impossible.
However, lots of employee opportunites and career growth in the 1990's.
