    I worked at JetBlue full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You meet many great coworkers, while in the air, and can build lasting friendships. The work can be exhausting, but the perks of travel make it a fair trade-off.

    Cons

    Managers that have certified, but have not actually done your job. The ability to "write-up" all other coworkers, in all positions, which can lead to petty situations. The pay and cost of healthcare makes it very difficult to thrive.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a small enough group that you are managing, try to get to know these people personally. Since hardly anyone lives in base, the family aspect is more important than your average 9-5.

    Pros

    The best part of employment with this company is of course the flight benefits. You are allowed to fly free from your date of hire.

    Cons

    Scheduling, standing for long hours, hard work with no recognition. At Jetblue you will work harder than any airline and one mistake is like cutting your own throat. No sympathy for employees... And no sick days! They are not afraid to tell you thousands apply everyday you are a dime a dozen!

    Advice to Management

    Don't just air on the side of humanity keep some on the ground for your workers.

    I worked at JetBlue full-time

    Pros

    co-workers, flexible hours, ability to control your own schedule, flight benefits are great.

    Cons

    sometimes felt like a slave, working non-stop, have to stand for entire shift, sitting not allowed on the job, sometimes would go without a single break for a ten hour shift and then forced to stay past your shift because of inadequate staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Stop over-working your staff. How about having chairs to sit in like the other airlines? And a conveyor belt that brings heavy bags from counter scale to bag belt so staff don't have to suffer unnecessary injuries.

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning experience for further aviation career. Gaining knowledge of leading aviation planning softwares and some technical aspect of aircraft fleet within the company. Communication with other departments to keep operation successful.

    Cons

    Not able to move up as expected. Need to be there for years and know many leadership. Communication is also limited to other departments and maintenance facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Know who is capable to advance the company on a long term basis and have respect for everyone. Try sitting with the employees and seeing how they work and feel for the operations. The leaders would them be able to realize what is needed and what isn't!

    I worked at JetBlue full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The travel benefits are fantastic! Lots of great people work for the company. Great if you are senior enough for picking and choosing your flights. Can work up to 150 hours a month, and as little as 20 for part time. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Management is chaos. Lots of back-stabbing, and the gossiping is out of control. Pilots and flight attendants hook-up a lot, regardless of being married or not, so morals, ethics and integrity are lacking, but no more so than other airlines I would imagine.

    Advice to Management

    The manor in which supervisors are hired is ridiculous! Alcoholics as supervisors, who drink and party with other alcoholics and cover for their drunken escapades. Most supervisors are promoted because they are actively or previously in sexual relationships with other supervisors. Few supervisors have any education, or experience to substantiate their being put in the position. The company is a real life version of the Dilbert Principle/Peter Principle with a heavy emphasis on promotions on who you do, not what you know.
