XOJET – Why Work For Us?

undefined

XOJET has become the nation's third largest private aviation company, serving more than 5,000 clients. Our unique business model combines on-demand private jet charter and flight programs with the highest levels of service at every point of our customers' experience.

One key to our success is our backing by TPG, a leading global private investment firm with over $45 billion of capital under management. TPG has established itself as one of the most experienced and successful backers of both aviation and luxury goods companies worldwide.

Another driver of our success is our history of customer-driven innovation. For example, in response to customer requests, in July 2010 we became the first private aviation operator to enable its entire private jet aircraft fleet with free in-flight Wi-Fi Internetconnectivity by equipping all of its Citation X and Challenger 300 private jets with Aircell GoGo BizAv technology.

Our commitment to safety leadership has earned us the highest safety ratings in the private aviation industry. Our Company is the only business aviation provider to rank either first or second in all 12 ARG/US Platinum safety rating categories.

From one-time private charter jet flights to comprehensive longer-term private jet membership programs such as Preferred Access™, Coast2Coast™ and Elite Access™, we offer you a full suite of private flight solutions to meet customers' specific needs.

Do you thrive on rising above the status quo? Does the thought of making a little private aviation history sound appealing? We're looking for aviation, technology, finance, marketing, and customer service professionals who want to be a part of something big; the creation of a revolutionary new way to fly private.

We invest heavily to bring on proven talent from diverse backgrounds and equip our employees with the training and motivation they need to provide breakthrough levels of private jet charter service, safety, and value to our customers. If you have a passion for private aviation and achieving excellence, we want to hear from you.

    Pros

    The People. A diverse set of minds have come from various backgrounds, both inside and out of the aviation industry, and have been transforming the company for the better over the last 12-18 months.

    Executive Leadership Team. Everyone, regardless of department, makes themselves available to employees of all levels. All of them have the highly distinguishable trait of being strong managers, constantly shifting between mico and macro management to achieve optimal results.

    Growth Opportunites. Since I've started there have been too many promotions to keep track of, and some people have been promoted a couple of times within a 12 month period. If you are a strong performer you will be promoted in due time.

    Cons

    Location. Company HQ in Brisbane is less than exciting location, very few lunch options are available.

    Compensation. Although base salaries are fair, overall benefit package mix could use some tweaking. Wellness benefits are a total waste, not just here but at all companies. A larger 401k match, performance bonus incentives or better health care coverage would be ideal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There have been a few internally training courses on select topics. If we could make this a regular monthly/quarterly thing I feel many employees would benefit from the (sometimes siloed) information.
