Featured Review

Current Employee - Customer Service Agent

I have been working at Delta Air Lines part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great leadership in our CEO, Ed Bastian and management team. Opportunities to advance and grow in the company. Besides the amazing benefits, it is a blessing to work for a company that truly cares... for its people (employees and customers). Great culture and diversity ... employees love their jobs and take care of each other!

Cons

No cons comes to mind in regards to working for this amazing airline!

Advice to Management

Thank you Ed and team for always taking care of our people and leading by great example! Employees are loyal and love their jobs because of our culture and the great leadership in our airline!

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than a year

Pros

The leadership at spirit is some of the best I have ever experienced or heard about. I have mostly interacted with leadership in the training department to be more specific. I know, without a doubt,... our skillset as instructors is valued highly by our leadership. These are the kind of bosses that make you WANT to work effectively and efficiently. They supplement professional development and set you up for success. Spirit often talks about making customers into 'super fans' but the real secret is that they care for us so much, that we become 'super fans' and this leads to a great service/product for the customer. They invest in their people heavily. Also communication from execs to the lowest level and everywhere in-between, is great!

Cons

Airline job security. The industry fluctuates but you will find this at ANY airline. However, at spirit, this is much less of a worry.

Advice to Management

Continue your formula for success, it works. Keep caring for your people, together we will become the most successful airline on earth!
