    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing, if your looking at working with Spirit, turn and run away fast!

    Cons

    Worked at the "corporate" office for over a year and thought it would get better but each day provides unbelievable incompetence of management. I'm still working here but have started looking to get out of this place. An upgrade of the facility will mean nothing given the same managers. It's a shame since I really wanted to stay but they don't rate dead last in the world for a commercial airline for nothing. Employees are actually treated much worst them their customers!

    Advice to Management

    The management of the entire company is so bad I don't no where to start

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    there are no pros working with spirit, they take take take take and never give. The moment you reach max pay, they find a reason to fire you.

    Cons

    you will spend your life getting yelled at by customers and degraded by supervisors. Its a horrible company that does not care about customers or employees

    Advice to Management

    Get a gun and shoot yourselves in the head.

    I worked at Spirit Airlines as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job for a large airline that is located in south florida

    Cons

    Arrogant and smug management from the top to the middle. They constantly move people around and bully them into making moves they don't want and then try to get them to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop haing Jet Blue envy. You nickle and dime your passengers and you refuse to admit it. Your middle managers are overweight and loud obnoxious bastards.

    I worked at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    An Airline trying to compete with some of the major airlines.

    Cons

    The airline operates very un-professionally....The culture proves that there is no loyalty to their employees. I was employed for over 1 year as a supervisor with 7 other supervisors, and after 1 year I was the last supervisor employed. I even had other employees from other airlines asking me why the turnover rate was so high, and I had no answer.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Laying off quality employees... You can not start a career with a company that does not value their employees...
