"I was discriminated as my background, culture, beliefs, & ethnicity are not welcomed at American Airlines. Non equal opportunity, & ethical bias is evident. AA is not a diverse place. Seems like only certain ethnicities can thrive there. My manager said that I had to go to the AA Dallas headquarters for a week due to a team activity. However, my AA manager did not allow me to expense the business trip… ??I had to PAY FOR THE ENTIRE BUSINESS TRIP WITH MY OWN SALARY ??. No free flights. I payed for hotel, food, gas, etc. I went anyways as it was non-optional. I spent my entire week's salary to pay for that business trip. Entry level & contractors are micromanaged & spied through their work computers. When my work computer started having VPN & network issues, I reached out to IT, they told me that they flagged my computer’s IP for “inappropriate use of the internet”, although, I solely used the computer for work. There was no explanation on why my computer had an "internet disciplinary behavior infraction”. I found out that AA IT had access to my bookmarks & personal private information through my work computer. 1 of the IT employees oddly told me through the phone to access a gaming site (Battle.net), which was deep into my bookmarks' folders, in order to get authenticated & temporarily unblock my IP. I had to access that site every time. I felt like they were laughing at my face. IT said that they can’t help me because I was a contractor & not a full-time. They told me that I needed to constantly switch proxies. Everything went well the first 8 weeks. I successfully completed multiple project. However, mysteriously after 8 weeks, my VPN stopped working. The computer’s IP address & proxy were blocked. It took me hours to connect every single day, & then it was randomly unblocked. I couldn’t work for the first few hours of the day as everything on my work computer was unaccessible/unauthorized, except for calls with my team."
"I love working for American. They are a great company that will work with you when needed and has great benefits that have allowed me to raise and grow myself and my family."
"Best job on earth! I’ve loved every second of being a flight attendant."
"One of the highest paying mechanic jobs you can get. Starting pay is $32 an hour and top out is Just under $60 an hour after 7 years. Health benefits, free-flying benefits, 401k that’s if you put 5% the company will put over 7% of their own money. Overtime is paid as double time and a half so 2.5 times your normal hourly pay. Includes holiday pay and anything over 40hrs a week. Pay is bi-weekly. AA Credit union is really good too. Paid sick time rolls over every year until you hit the cap of 1,300 sick hours. You also get 5 weeks of paid vacation time per year once you have enough seniority. If you’re a hard worker, well-spoken, knowledgeable, willing to learn, never late then is this a great company to work for."
"They do not support you truly."
"The company is a great place to work. The culture has changed over the years and become more advanced. Despite the difficult times that airlines experience, the company is trying to do their best to work with employees."
"I have signed a NDA and am not allowed to comment, however AA was a great company to work for, I really enjoyed it."
"Great benefits, including travel benefits, health insurance, matched 401(k), discounts. Job can be stressful since have to work with the public, flights must depart on-time, have to follow all FAA policies and airline policies."
"Great company to work for."
"American Airlines offers a variety of very interesting jobs, and excellent tools to accomplish the work. The new HDQ is very worker friendly, encouraging collaboration to get better results."
