Great place to work in you take advantage of flying benefits
Commercial Strategy Analyst (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 9, 2017
you do not get compensated the same as other places because of the weight they put on a "Free" flight . overall a fun and great place to work at. I wish I had time to fly to take advantage of the benefits.
I have a blast at work with new friends you meet along the way and new places you get to explore!

Working within the airline industry can be real intense from day to day. Each work day brings it's own excitement from a co worker or just seeing a former college colleague who you attended college. The job gives you plenty of flexibility while each aircraft is safety parked at the gate followed by the procedures of unloading the aircraft. Working as a team and building a bond is one thing that's great within the industry. You spend years with other co workers and they become part of family. You interact with flight attendants, captains, and gate agents so you never working with the same people each day always new and fresh smiles each day.
Customer Service Representa (Former Employee) – Cary, NC – March 7, 2017
The company was great to work for. The only issue was that there was not a real balance of work/life. That is the only issue I had with AA. Loved the job, it was just hard to get days off sometimes without having to pickup other hours from other people so that your shift would be covered.
Getting time off sometimes was hard. Hated bidding for my shift.
Customer Service/Call Center (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 6, 2017
Large company with large profits, but not very good at sharing. Training is fast and in a "sink or swim" manner Lots of room for advancement and greater opportunities. In general LOVED the job, just no the company. once hired on, you become a number and not a name.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – March 2, 2017
A typical day at work would consist of performing all reception duties, assisting customers with reservations, and educating them on products and services, directed customers to destinations, and resolved any issues that customers may experienced. I learned about many different locations throughout the United States and other Countries. Management was somewhat helpful. The workplace was great, I met many great people that later became close friends. The hardest part of my job was not always being able to satisfy the customer. the most enjoyable part of my job, was being able to travel all over the World inexpensively.
Cargo Agent (Former Employee) – Bensenville, IL – February 27, 2017
The position in it self was cool however the vacation relief position was a joke, it was very hard to adjust to a shift when you may only be assigned the shift for a week or two. The pay was horrible for all that was required in a shift, personally I expected more from a major airline.
