    I worked at Virgin America part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great! It was my first time in the airlines industry the schedules are really flexible, great training, huge on TEAM! Great benefit incentives

    Cons

    Upper Management are NOT experienced, being at the airports and being the part of the front lines was pretty rough, many times In-flight was pretty rude to GSTs and consistently complaining, Beware in the industry that lots of people are two-faced, and situations which occurred at stations was not really solved properly due to favoritism. Constantly promoting inside growth but always hiring from outside company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs more training! Give more opportunity to people inside the company and promote more instead of hiring outside. Understand and react on behaviors in stations cause it can become bigger if left alone.

    I have been working at Virgin America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Through the 6 years I have worked here, I have moved up the ladder on a few occasions. Opportunities do come up and there is plenty of potential to build a career here.
    Fun environment
    Pilots and FA's work together

    Cons

    little flexibility with swapping and dropping trips.
    pay could be better, although it is constantly improving
    work rules could be more consistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an internal third party by voting to create a check and balance system to bridge management and crews.
