    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...

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love the atmosphere. Positive energy. In the base that I work everyone is welcoming and makes you feel more like family than coworkers. We’re a growing airline and getting better each year. The health benefits & travel benefits are amazing and can’t be beat. Because we are growing so fast, seniority is easier to reach. I love having the ability to pick my schedule, work as much as I want or drop trips to take off as...

    Cons

    The main con is that the company has a bad reputation- so whenever there is even a minor delay whether it be over weather or maintenance- we are the face of the company and we receive the backlash. We hear daily that “I’m never flying spirit again” and it’s usually over something minor- ie. running out of a certain snack, a ten minute delay- etc. With that being said- our company has improved so much within the last few...

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some departments are fantastic and filled with awesome people, others are filled with awesome people too, but the downfall is management at times. You have your department heads that love what they do and fight for their employees, and others work against their employees. The luck of the draw. -The airline is growing, and there is much to do. -Pretty cool people. -Flight benefits, 401k Charles Schwaab, paid vacation,...

    Cons

    -Pay not as high as other airlines. -The company takes forever to implement a lot of things.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be on the same page if we want to reach the desired goal. This doesn't apply to every department, some are awesome, others not so much, but please listen to your employees. If people start quitting or getting fired left and right, the problem is management.
