    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.

    I worked at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    easy job, easy pay, no supervisor while doing your job, travel benefits are amazing

    Cons

    away from home often, scheduling doesn't help you when in need, sudden last-minute schedules changes, hotel rooms sometimes aren't booked when you arrive into a city, layovers can be less than five hours in which you're just sitting in an airport, dealing with awful passengers (there is a stark difference between spirit's passengers' and other airlines' passengers which can be noted just from walking from one terminal to the other)
