Tariff Agent (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 26, 2016
American Airlines is an excellent company to work for and a very trusting company to do business with. I enjoyed when i worked in office around fellow co-workers. We worked hard, encouraged one another, worked together, enjoyed company rewards and holidays. The management team was excellent. They provided us with adequate training and tools needed to do our job. The most difficult part of my job was abrupt and angry customers. The most enjoyable was being able to help as many customers as possible, making sure their needs are met!
Stressful work enviroment due to corporation restructuring / merger
Sr. Business Analyst / QA ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 24, 2016
The hardest part of the job was dealing with uncertainty. Employees experience bankruptcy, corporate merger, loss of benefits and some layoffs. The combination created an extreme anxiety in the work place.
No flexibility in scheduling / work location. Working virtual was not allowed.
Catering agent (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 19, 2016
It was way better when it was still US Airways, American Airlines have given its employees raises but then turn around and cut their hours. Leaving full time employees to only 12 hour a week shifts. The veterans who have been there for 10 plus years call out and collect sick pay, leaving the rest to struggle and try to get flights out on time. With less people, missing stock and bad management American Airlines is headed for a crash landing.
I was contracted through bags to work with american airlines, The management with bags is not very pleasant there is a lot of favoritism and gossip between co workers. i Would say the most enjoyable would be helping customers getting checked in.
