    I have been working at easyJet part-time

    Pros

    After being a Cabin Manager and working as an assessor for new crew for many years I had 2 children and I couldn't continue in the role but have now adapted to a new part time role. The opportunities available to you once here are endless. I didn't want to leave the company as the passion I still have and the working relationships formed here are irreplaceable.

    Cons

    There are always hard times within a company and easyJet definitely have them. Its a demanding high paced place to work but worth it.

    I worked at easyJet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for easyjet as a cabin crew and it is such a cheerful and very supportive company despite the idea people might have as it is a low fare.I would recommend it to everyone who wants to be cabin crew

    Cons

    Nothing to say except we do long shift and fly mostly 5 days in a row but have enough days off to recover!

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, you're doing an amazing job. It has been a pleasure to be part of the Orange family.

    I worked at easyJet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a very inspiring place to work and with a good no blame culture. Working across Europe and dealing with many different nationalities give you a different outlook on life.

    Staff travel is a great bonus when working for an airline.

    Cons

    As easyJet is a very driven organisation, this culture sometimes comes through in how some colleagues treat other colleagues and it can be about covering your own back.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think there is any, I had a great time working and was one of the best places I have ever worked.
