Dont work for Chelsea
Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TxJuly 17, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: chelsea
The rest of the company was a good place to work some departments better than others. Chelsea was the worst. Senior leadership and HR sleep with each other and terminate and write up who ever they want. It is a dictatorship and you either do exactly what they want or they get rid of you.

Nice place to work. Contractors treated differently
Business Analyst (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 15, 2014
Pros: good people to work with
Cons: things move at a snails pace
Good people but a lot of big egos clashing not allowing people to do their work.

Contractors are treated almost second rate. Don't have access to everything neither are they allow to work from home / remotely unless they need to. Everyone's spending more time trying to complain about being busy than they are working.

A lot of empty promises for advancement – more... but none happening. – less

Fun workplace and nice breakroom
Baggage Handler/Ramp Agent (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJuly 8, 2014
A typical day at United Airlines was fun and upbeat. The diversity of worker made this job one of my favorite. While working with United Airlines I had to understand/learn military time. The Airline industry runs on a 24hr clock so that was a fun concept to learn. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the weather and delays. Weather played a – more... big factor wheather it was rain, heat, sleet, snow or frigid cold planes kept to their destinations. My most enjoyable moments were watching the planes land and take off; learing the different types of planes. – less

Pretty typical for an Airline Job
Flight Attendant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 8, 2014
Unions pretty much dictate the job. Working for UAL is great because of all the international destinations and partnerships. It was good pay, not sure what it is now. I haven't worked there in many years.

Never boring, always challenging
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Des Moines, IAJune 27, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits and compensation.
Cons: high stress and cost cutting significantly reducing benefits and compensation.
United has had some difficult changes to get through in a high cost of capital industry. Airlines need to be managed as a business to survive yet share a lot of the public responsibilities of a Utility. Add this to a clash of two corporate cultures (United and Continental), one a heavily unionized and disgruntled work force with excellent tools. The – more... other a smaller line with antiquated tools but a employee base proud of their company and you get, "A House Divided". – less

Ramp Agents Life
ramp agent (Former Employee), elizabeth NJJune 23, 2014
Pros: flight benefits
Cons: pay and management
Easy job but always made much more difficult with horrible management on the ground. Coworkers always trying to get you in trouble and the pay is low. BUT if you love to travel then this benefit is awesome. However you rarely get to go anywhere because you dont earn enough to do so.

My intern experience
eCommerce Quality Assurance Internship (Former Employee), Houston, TXJune 18, 2014
Pros: flying benifits
Cons: no insurance beneifits, 8+hour/shift over pay, or holiday pay for interns
Working at United was a unique experience. A typical day meant jumping on a plane and complete IT testing. There was no consistent schedule which could be a disadvantage at times. However, all employees do get free stand-by flying benefits which was the best thing in my life! I was able to learn much about the aviation industry and the dynamic nature – more... of it. As for management, I believe they have much much to work on. Some are simply in the wrong position. – less
