    Pros

    Great pay for what we actually do. Plenty of perks to keep you coming back to work.

    Long hours and may have to work holidays and weekends until senior enough to hold it off. Public can be rough sometimes.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, paid vactions, you make your own schedule . Several breaks and oppurtunities for advancement . No union so they still try to keep it that way

    Cons

    Sometimes lazy co workers , Hard work during busy season. Out in the hot sun. Lifting heavy bags. Have a lot of crap you have to answer for if you make a mistake, no sweeping it under the rug.

    I have been working at JetBlue

    Pros

    Although not always successful people at JetBlue try to do the right thing. Enpowerment was a big thing during the early days of the airline, although it isn't as prevalent as it used to be.

    Cons

    JetBlue was started by people who were willing to take a risk. Over time the Risk Takers have either been driven out or pigeoned hole and made to change over time. In their place has risen the Care Takers. People who require conformity and scorn enpowerment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best advertisement is "word of mouth" advertising. The growth of the Marketing Department indicates that we are looking for "cutzie" gimmicks instead of sticking to the best advertisement; a satisfied customer.

    I worked at JetBlue

    Pros

    flight benefits, exiting field of work, it is fun if you can overlook the crazyness and uncetainties of the industry but for sure the unfair politics will bring you down

    Cons

    on your feet all day and not allwed to sit down-leads have their click and they get away with anything and everything-if mgmt likes you then you're on your way but if for some reason they dislike you or anything you do they will find a way to make you look bad- you cannot trust leadership (and I use the term very loosely here) favoritism is the norm at jetblue and to top it all they make it seem like they hold their company's values true but they do not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be fair, say what you mean and mean what you say.
    get back to the principles that were alive and real when the company started.
    the only caring is for the profit of the company and to hell with the employees.
    you can place mandatory overtime but you fail to let people leave early when it is not busy or have an urgent situation unless if benefits the company's bottom line nad penalize those who do have a life and need to be home to take care of their spouses, children or family members.
