American Airlines Reviews
What is it like working at American Airlines?
"Challenging, yet restrictive."
First-Line Supervisor / Manager of Production and Operating Workers in Charlotte:
Pros: The work, employees and making a difference
Cons: Restriction to problem solving and making progress
Revenue Analyst in Fort Worth:
Pros: Learning an adaptive business
Cons: Change is slow
Senior Systems Engineer:
American Airlines has become a “sweat shop”. My first three years there was great. I rarely worked after hours and the stress was minimal as long as work was completed on time. Not sure why it changed, but about a year ago our team started getting focus for the wrong reasons. Since then a lot of unruly demands started coming from management. I was impacted by a layoff in August. I have no ill will towards the company. However, I have to say they do not pay market for my skillset or experience. The benefits are not that great either. Mediocre at best. I would be hesitant to work for this company if I were someone looking at a position. There are better companies I feel that treat employees right than American Airlines.
Senior Data Analyst in Fort Worth:
Pros: free travel, independence, time at career
Cons: lack of focus on the business, politics, childishness
This is the NEW AA - run by USAIR and an exhalted OLD HR Dept that seeks no more than the money and power they can stuff in their pockets - as a person- you will not exist to THEM. Go anywhere, be anything but do not go here, in months or weeks they will bankrupt you, and customers.
Flight Attendant in Nashville:
Cons: Rude passengers.
Timekeeper in Phoenix:
Pros: The camaraderie amongst my co-workers, the ability to trade shifts.
Cons: The pay is low!
