I have been working at Virgin America full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Changing the guest experience to become America's favorite airline. Fun atmosphere, team oriented, and great brand recognition. Very young fleet of aircraft with all the high tech amenities that business travelers need.

Cons

We're still on the low side of the pay scale compared with our peers in the industry. Still need some work on consistency of applying work rules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent and consistent when applying work rules.

    I have been working at Virgin America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company culture is truly amazing, I've never experienced anything like it before. Fantastic uniforms that are young and fresh. An amazing product that is incomparable- whenever I tell people that I work for Virgin they always respond with, "I love that airline!" Coworkers that are genuinely happy to come to work. Open door policy regarding questions/concerns. We have been voted "the best domestic carrier" consistently year after year and I truly believe that is because of the people that work here.

    Cons

    Virgin is still a baby compared to most airlines (we're going into our sixth year) so there are a few growing pains. I wish the pay scale was a bit higher considering our three bases are in some of the most expensive cities in the U.S. (San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York). Reserve sucks (but that's at every airline). I wish we had more zed fare agreements. Insurance can be a bit expensive.
