Recently started but fantastic place to work! Worked at other airlines and this is a great environment comparatively

Power Plant Engineer (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Frontier Airlines full-time for less than a year

ProsPeople are fantastic, really nice and welcoming, very helpful and cheerful. Lots of growth opportunities and ability to gain tremendous amount of experience

ConsNone so far, smaller airline so there are challenges that arise with that, but you need your job to be challenging so it's good. Better to have a challenging job than be in a company with challenging people, and this is not the case!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The Spirit of the West

CSS (Former Employee)

I worked at Frontier Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe culture during the "early years" was very family oriented. Whether you worked in LGA, MCI, PDX, LAX, throughout the nation, if you bumped into an F9 employee outside your home state, you knew immediately you had a friend. The flight benefits coupled with medical, etc... was good until 2009. Salary was competitive.

ConsSenior Executives mismanaged the company which led to the absorption by Republic Airways. As a result, trust was lost amongst all employees and morale was at an all time low.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe employees are your 1st customers and should be treated as such. Don't forget where you came from.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great company, but lots of change

Flight Attendant (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Frontier Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat employee group on the ground level, lots of people who genuinely care about customer service and providing a great travel experience.

ConsChanges in ownership over the past years have resulted in a constant time of changes, some of them good some bad but the hardest part was the lack of consistency

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember the change s that are made are easier when you do not have to look the customer in the face

It was good til the outsourcing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Frontier Airlines

ProsGreat airline to start with, good benefits, friendly co-workers

Conspeople complaining about outrageous bag fees, the stripping of our fight benefits, retirement and raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring Frontier back to a Low Cost carrier instead of a Ultra Low cost carrier, do away with the outsourcing crap and give the people their benefits back.

Good for an Intern and Externship

Crew Scheduler (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Frontier Airlines full-time for less than a year

ProsFlight benefits when you can use them, having 3 days off in a row, some coworkers were loyal.

Conshaving to report to an uneducated Manager, who has no management skills, unfair management, high turnover and low pay. Upper management ignore the fact that certain departments such as crew scheduling get treated like garbage, but highly depended on and very incompetent manager that seems to be invincible no matter what she does and how unfair she is!!!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementInvestigate departments more such as crew scheduling management, have better training and pay equivalent to the work!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
