    I worked at Blue Star Jets for less than a year

    Pros

    Very flexible company, relaxed atmosphere, located in the West Loop close to public transportation. Teaches you time management since you are in charge of making your own money, dial for dollars. You make your own hours, management gives you the freedom with your hours. If you're not on the phone make contacts and sales you're not going to make any money.

    Cons

    This is a 100% commission job, no base salary or any benefits at all. You have the chance to make money but its hard.

    Advice to Management

    Pay some type of wage to the employees. Its hard at the end of the week to put in work and see nothing in your bank account.

    Pros

    Exciting industry. If ran properly, they could probably compete with the likes of NetJets, and Magellan

    Cons

    No communication between the east coast office and the west coast office. Terrible upper management

    Advice to Management

    If you want to compete in this industry and retain quality personnel. Funding, support, salary, and transparency needs to be implemented.
