I worked at Spirit Airlines part-time for less than a year

Pros

Lots of down time between flights. Friendly workers, mostly west indian chaps.

Cons

Horrible moral, people being fired all the time for showing up 1 minute late. Supervisors constantly being replaced. Botched up micromanagement style here, looking to penalize workers instead of correcting. Inadequate and poorly maintained support equipment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get newer equipment and also train the heck out of newbies. When I asked for a checkout on the equipment and was told by one supervisor to just drive it like you do your car.

    I worked at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Co-workers, felt like we were stuck in the same hell hole together. Alot of OT

    Cons

    Extremely overworked, Morale on Mx dep. is on the floor, all the flight benefits they say they give you, you cant really enjoy because you are either always working or the planes are always full. The pay is in no way competitive to other airlines and the only reason why Im still in this miserable place is because Im waiting for jet blue to open a position. No Help from Station Managers all the way up to CEO Ben Baldanza.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This advise is to the board of directives, GET YOUR MONEY AND RUNN!!!! If you keep the same people running this airline the way it is, it will crash to the ground. The previous owners who created spirit airlines should had left this clowns some notes on how to run an airline.

    Strong growing company with extremely capable management team but can improve in HR related functions.
