‘It’s a Good scheme To join’
They cover 80% of medical.
Flight benefits are one of the best in the industry
Travel benefits are fantastic. Pension scheme. Annual leave increases the longer you are employed.
Flight benefits on United and other carriers. They also provide flexible benefits e.g. retails cards, reduced rate gym membership, the option to buy and sell vacation etc.
All things points
My United Airlines status is still showing Gold for 2022 even though I didn’t qualify for gold this year. It was carried over from 2020 into 2021. Will they also carry it over into 2022 for the rest of the year? I don’t see an expiration date for my current gold status so I’m confused.
Consulting Exit Opportunities
I have a first round interview with United Airlines Friday for their FP&A dept. Any tips/topics to specifically prepare for? Only had a manager reach out to me via email to schedule the interview; no HR or discussion regarding what the 45 minute interview will be centered around. Any and all insight is appreciated!
My family has a tripped planned for December. I bought airfare through United Airlines (Economy, Non-refundable ticket type). Unfortunately, my father has gotten sick and we may need to cancel all together. What are my options with the airline (e.g., cancel & refund or get as credits)? I have Gold Status if it matters. Thanks.
Please present an argument for saving United Airlines. United Airlines COO says employees should 'seriously consider' voluntary separation from the airline The airline is precluded from laying off staff for the next six months under terms of a federal financial assistance package that will provide it with about $5 billion, though it is preparing to cut staff as soon as Oct. 1, according to an April letter sent to staff by CEO Oscar Munoz and President Scott Kirby.
Compared to many other airlines, the staff travel scheme is poor for management employees. There are no status related staff travel benefits, everything is standby (subload) and onload priority is given to longer serving employees regardless of their grade within the company. A new employee, even a senior manager, joins the back of the queue. On the plus side, unusually, all employees can standby for premium cabins as well as economy (coach) and a number of 'vacation' passes are given each year. Also, leave (vacation) is the legal UK minimum of 20 days for the first four years of service. Most other benefits for UK staff are given only under a flexi-benefits salary sacrifice arrangement.
The company offers a fair range of benefits. The best thing is free and discounted travel on the airline's global route network.
Good health and dental and vision insurance, fare travel benefits, good 401k, vacation not very well paid, good time off.
