Travel benefits are great.
Thing are changing in this industry. Dulles is a great place to work. You need to be very independent. Support is limited. I don't know what the future will hold.

Day at United
When I started at United Airlines my typical day was checking in Passengers into their flights. However, I was also given the guidance of Supervisor to learn more to advance in the Company we had mentors to help guide us if they seen in us a self motivational attitude I worked with some really good leadership in the 8 years I was there.
Pros
flight benefits, events to show recognition for job well done.

One of the best airlines to work for as your compensation is very high on the pay scale and your efforts in daily and side projects do not go unnoticed. They are on a good path with the new leadership

Flight Attendant
Pay is very tough at the beginning. Need to financially sound before starting but gets better with time. Benefits are the best thing about the job. Good work life balance but must be a people person.

Productive company
Working for United Airlines involves working with some of the newest commercial aircraft in the air today. I enjoy the opportunities I have while working for a large commercial airline.

as an A&P Maint tech at United Airlines, I feel that the management doesn't care about employees at certain bases, specifically, at Dulles(IAD). I have worked at other bases such as SFO line maintenance where they value the hard work and effort each tech puts in.
Pros
benefits, Medical
Cons

United Airlines CSR
The job itself is pretty simple there is nothing difficult about it. If you're good at dealing with people and calming them down then this is the perfect job for you. This position is unionized so unfortunately some of the employees feel the need to do nothing while others do the majority of the work and actually try to improve the image of the airline. I would probably say the majority of the leads and supervisors are absolutely worthless and don't know how to handle situations so you will be stuck in the front line by yourself a lot. All in all, it is worth the all the work because the benefits are so great.

Don’t do it
management is crazy, didn’t know what they were doing half the time, system designed to set you up for failure, didn’t care about the employees at all, only thing great about it is the flight privileges, even that sucks, it’s seniority based so if you’re new in the company 10/10 you’re getting bumped off a flight

Not good
I worked at the Sterling, VA call center and mostly hated it. It was extremely stressful handling calls from irate customers. Micro-management made things much worse and the pay sucks. The only thing good about it was I got to travel to parts of the world I never would have had an opportunity to see otherwise. Even then, they deduct the mileage from your already measly pay check

Fun place to work at with awesome flight benefits
Worked at United for 23 years. Like any company you will have ups and downs; however, for the most part the company is a great place to work. Awesome!

Great place to work
I truly can say I love working for United. Some management is questionable but more on a local level. The company itself is great! I have worked in various cities and job functions and can honestly say I have always loved my job!

It was a very nice opportunity to learn new things. We had an opportunity to shadow different departments, dealing with customers, visiting new places in the airport.

Do Not Reccomend
Highly inefficient, lack of meaningful work, managers with no sense of oversight for the program, no benefits, minimum wage for the airport while other interns in this program at other airports are paid more

marshaling aircraft, loading/unloading and sorting freight and baggage, servicing the aircraft, assisting with pushback and towing, deicing and other
Fast paced environment in hot and cold conditions. Learned team work values working together to complete a task. Company leaders are well trained and organized. Very friendly atmosphere family oriented. Hardest part of this job is working under inclement weather. Interesting part of working in this company is the types of aircraft they service.

I started my aviation career at United. I have done my part and was rewarded accordingly. Started as a mechanic and retired as an inspector. Training at United is awesome. You will get what u need to do your job and advance within the company.
Thank you United.
