Worst company I've ever worked for

Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

ProsAs an airline employee you can travel for free as long as the flight is not full. Unfortunately, that is the only advantage to working at Spirit and it is one you would get with any airline.

ConsManagement does not care about the employees. We had to start as part timers (20 Hrs/Wk ), and had to purchase our own uniforms which were very low quality and expensive ($275). They took the cost out of our paychecks. Very low wages, not too much above minimum wage. During training we were assured that although starting pay was very low, we would receive raises every 6 months. This was followed by constant wage freezes, so those raises took much longer. It took 3 years just to get up to ALMOST $10/Hr and then they hired a bunch of new people and found reasons to get rid of everyone that had finally gotten their way overdue wage increases.
They had us on 8.5 Hr shifts (half Hr for unpaid lunch) but they kept us so busy that most of the time we would not be able to take the lunch break and they would refuse to pay us for working that extra half hour. This company started out in Detroit and relocated to Florida because they knew they could abuse the employees and get away with it in Florida

Advice to Senior ManagementTry treating your employees fairly and pay them a reasonable wage for all the hassles and responsibilities you put on them

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Work-life??

    Analyst (Current Employee) Miramar, FL

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros: Able to travel almost anywhere at minimal cost. Dynamic work environment, always some… Cons: poor work-life balance. Management prefers the employees to stay extra, just for the sake of staying. It's all about appearance. pay is not competitive.… Advice to Senior Management: Base promotions on the quality and quantity of work, not based on the hours the employee spends at the office. Work on creating a better work-life… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Very poor working conditions

    RSA (Former Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

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

    Pros: Lots of down time between flights. Friendly workers, mostly west… Cons: Horrible moral, people being fired all the time for showing up 1 minute late. Supervisors constantly being replaced.… Advice to Senior Management: Get newer equipment and also train the heck out of newbies. When I asked for a checkout… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
