    I have been working at JetBlue part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    work culture, flight benefits, 401k matching, working with the public who have a high degree of respect for JetBlue. Company is growing (European service starting 2021) so the potential for career growth within company is very good.

    Cons

    can be long hours and somewhat stressful when in irregular operations due to weather or other issue.
