    I have been working at easyJet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are supported by the company in situations that may occur on board. Pay is great (especially in the summer).
    Great people to work with. Great benefits and staff travel. Gain experience very quickly with easy progression. Able to preference your roster, if you want earlies, lates, 2 sectors or 4 sectors. The company refer to us before making changes in our working departments.

    Cons

    Some resources are dated compares to other airlines. You work very hard mainly in summer but that is expected. Get given 4 sectors which are mentally and physically exhausting. Some management are unapproachable but that depends on the base and what you want to talk about. Some cabin managers and captains can be unsupportive and stuck in their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t have your favourites. Try to stay positive no matter the situation.

    I worked at easyJet full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get lots of leave entitlement and cheap staff travel depending on availability. You get free performance shares in the company and the option to buy more.

    Cons

    Flights are delayed often. Roster changes daily so difficult to have a structured personal life. Passengers can be challenging at times. Very 'gossipy' atmosphere amongst crew. Bullying goes on in the workplace (I know crew that cry themselves to sleep at night and are scared of going into work). Limited progression unless you are based in Luton or Gatwick.

    Advice to Management

    Support your crew if they are facing difficult issues, both in and out of work. Don't make them feel as if they are 'mentally ill' just because you don't have time to help them or think that their problem is irrelevant. You need to clamp down on bullying and treat any related accusations more seriously. Don't pick and choose which scenarios warrant investigation. There should be a benchmark for how crew are treated as it comes across as if the managers have their favourites.

    Pros

    No pros, awful company to work for

    Cons

    Awful company to work for.
    Unfair treatment of employees.
    Grads are taken advantage of and simply treated as cheap labour with no opportunity to progress nor a competitive offer at the end of the scheme.
