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

    Pros

    -Travel benefits -Health insurance -Work/life balance -Reserve life is MUCH shorter than other airlines -Workload and job is incredibly easy, generally speaking

    Cons

    -Management is constantly looking for loopholes in the poorly written contract in order to shortchange us. -Crew Scheduling is ALWAYS purposely breaking the contract--"Fly it and grieve it" -Reputation isn't the best -Company is always miscalculating your pay, so self-audits are almost a must every single month. -It's like ripping teeth out just to get ANY management to respond to emails. Have a question for HR? Good luck. They'll respond in about two months, or not at all.

    Former Employee - Flight Attendant 

    I worked at Spirit Airlines part-time

    Pros

    Ability to have a flexible schedule and work multiple jobs including as a flight attendant. Layover cities are fun and almost all co-workers are amazing.

    Cons

    Contract violations constantly held as "valid" due to IROP standards which means anything from weather to minimum reserve coverage.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    *Good flight benefits on Luftansa, Air Canada and other good airlines for international, US major carriers domestic (not international), and of course where Spirit flies *Spirit has some of the best health insurance in the industry. Very affordable and good coverage! *Time for part-time work *Lots of time for reading on the plane

    Cons

    *Sometimes it feels if union fees are going down the drain - Spirit does illegal scheduling and then just tells you to file a ticket... *When you first start and are on reserve it is difficult to move any days or get weekends off. I have been at DTW for over a year and will probably still be on reserve for another year... It's hard to make new friends/take college courses when you can't go to any events/classes regularly. IF you can stick it out for 3-4 years you will have more control of your schedule *Starting pay is very minimal. I wouldn't have been able to survive the first year without living with family * Reserve trips are generally the ones no one wants so get ready for lots of red-eyes and blah layovers
