Does not care about family actives or your personal life. you are slave to the company.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee), Tempe, AZApril 21, 2015
Pros: Co-workers.
Cons: Pay to travel. Short rest. long hours. never home
US Airways started off great. Then they became like all monster hungry companies only worried about turning a profit. Have your sister's wedding? you can forget about it... unless you call in sick. Events in your life should only happen on your days off if you are a reserve Flight Att. Block Holders run the show and the union. You have to pay to travel now... what is that about.

Customer Service Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAFebruary 9, 2015
Managing a large force of employees, with an open view feeling, dealing with a large number of customer and coworkers. The hardest part of the job is being stuck at times with longer hours due to weather conditions. The most enjoyable time is talking and helping with customers in a variety of different languages.

Productive & high paced
Cross Trained Agent (Current Employee), Montgomery, ALJuly 24, 2014
Great environment and even better coworkers. The perks of travelling at the expense of the company is phenomenal! Hardest part of the job is being able to function as both ramp & gate agents in such a high capacity but it is satisfying.

Typical Work Day
Fleet Service Agent (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PANovember 27, 2012
A typical normal day at work for me is usually interacting with other co-workers and satisfying the customers. I learned if you do everything the way it's suppose to be done the work day tends to go smoothly. The hardest part of the day is normally during the rush hours. During the rush hour you have to work at a faster paste and still do everything right.
