Good company to work for been working for them in two different fields for a total of 7 years now. Great flexibility, good pay scale, union depending upon where you’re working.



DFW Airport, TX - February 28, 2020

perks are so so

Flying was great, the benefits or perks are trending down a bit, however. Sitting standby is a small sacrifice for such great perks until you've sat standby for 3 days.


Specialist II

Tempe, AZ - February 27, 2020

Great job, amazing benefits

Wonderful opportunity as far as travel goes. Amazing people. Amazing management. I entered into this job at entry level and had advanced very quickly. Plenty of opportunities to move up. Understanding company with paid time off. Ability to travel the world anywhere the airlines fly. Family travel as well.


Baggage Handler

Washington, DC - February 26, 2020

Better than most

Although the job did not pay as good it was a job that had a great culture and great management. Work life balance could be a lot better but overall a good job for someone who had little to do experience with work. I felt my skills and talents were overqualified for the job.


Production Support coordinator

Jamaica, NY - February 26, 2020

American Airlines Reputations

I was pride to wear AAs uniform. I felt like the envy of everyone who watched me walk throughout the terminal. The flight benefits were great. The culture was impressive.

Cut throat leaders

My first leadership team was trustworthy and supportive, but a new upper leadership team arrived and destroyed our team with fear tactics, forcing me to resign.


Operations Agent, Ground Security Coordinator, Customer Service Agent.

Flight Attendant

Miami, FL - February 20, 2020

It is exhausting and sometimes overwhelming but the perks more than make up for it.

Being a flight attendant was probably one the best jobs I have ever had. Yes, it can be exhausting waking up in the wee hours and look your best when all you want to do is sleep; but it is definitely worth it all.


Customer Service Representative

O'hare International Airport, IL - February 20, 2020


It’s honestly not that bad of a job


Ramp Agent

Chicago, IL - February 20, 2020

Good company to be apart of

It’s a great place to work at and grow within the company. Every year of you working there your seniority goes up and you get better off days and vacation time.
