    I have been working at Allegiant Travel part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Travel Benefits, YEP free flights for you, your travel companion, kids and YOUR parents. Fantastic 401K program and other travel discounts to see the world economically and only have to work part time.

    Cons

    Well, it's not there fault but when it is cold and snowy. I still have to work outside. Really nothing I dislike.

    I have been working at Allegiant Travel full-time

    Pros

    Unionized by TWU, pay is amazing after the 1st year (over $7 increase), there is profit sharing payouts 2 times a year, you work independently with a crew and little to no management everyday, and there are so many opportunities to move up in the company, even as a flight attendant. They love hiring those at their HQ from within. One last thing, as a flight attendant at Allegiant, you get to come home every night as there are no layovers, unless there is a mechanical, weather issue, etc that causes your flight to be cancelled.

    Cons

    Training doesn't really prepare you well enough on the phases of flight (I.e., the day to day work you do everyday), so most of us, including those who have graduated after me, had a really tough time on the IOE; so just be mindful of that. Also, Allegiant isn't doing much about the toxic cabin air issue (research dirty sock smell in aircraft.) It has sent a lot of us to the hospital where we needed to be detoxified of the fumes in our bodies.
