Just need some advice. I’ve been a US LPR since 2016, and my Green Card is based on asylum that I was granted. I’m now in the process of becoming a Language of Destination flight attendant at a US major airline. They’re hiring me especially for international flights.I know in my situation, it’s recommended to not use my home country passport. Would I be able to work with a US travel document or re-entry permit? Any idea or suggestion?
A reentry permit should suffice for you to be admitted back into the U.S.

You are absolutely right.
You will place your LPR status and future naturalization in danger by using the passport from the country of persecution. Immediately file for a Re Entry Permit, form I-131. (it may take up to 100 days to process).
The best legal option for you would be filing for US naturalization after four years and one day of your being an LPR with prior asylum status. It appears you may file that N400 next year.
