Our Employees

I joined United five years ago, and I love that United has the most diverse culture. Everyone here respects and cares about each other, and we encourage one another to be ourselves. We support and help each other while striving to provide the best experience for our customers.

Maintenance Crew Chief in Taiwan
“When you work in aviation, most days will be different and unexpected. I have worked on three different teams with two promotions in my four-year tenure. I've been able to become an expert in different paths while growing my career. United employees have such pride in their jobs, team, and company which is why the culture is so inclusive and fun!”

Tech Ops Strategy & Performance
My journey began as an intern where I gained invaluable experience and job skills to transition to a full-time Engineer. With the dynamic nature of the work we do in Tech Ops, the department ensured a work life balance, offering flexibility and support to both professional success and personal wellbeing. The best part of working at United is visiting new cities and countries to explore and eat!
