    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Travel benefits, schedule flexibility (after you gain seniority), overall easy going job, independent work environment

    Cons

    Its a big company. It does not care about your well being or safety. The job can be difficult due to the long hours, shift work, its not good if you need to be home a lot or have a consistent schedule.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Travel is number one, the lifelong friendships from training class and the random crew members that I get to fly with are wonderful. The passengers for the most part at least for me have been great. It's rewarding when you can make them comfortable at 35,000 ft. They show their appreciation and their thanks as they exit the aircraft. Some even leave goodies such as chocolates!

    Cons

    Commuting is sometimes an issue. During certain times it's very hard to get on a flight to report to work. The long hours and living out of your suitcase for days on end can be challenging. It's a lifestyle and you have to get used to it. Training isn't long enough. There needs to be more hands on before going onto a real aircraft.
