I worked at Frontier Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Flight benefits, full time job, get to bid your schedule, seeing some cool airplanes, and I guess flight benefits again....if you can use them

Cons

Low pay. Unprofessional. Inadequate hearing protection provided. Loud jet engines. Benefits offered but who can afford them?? $10/hr and the health for 1 person is $130 per pay period... unbelievable. Arriving more than an hour before your shift during training just to make sure you can get through security.

Advice to Management

Schedule your new hires to get their background checks, fingerprinting, and SIDA badges before training starts. It's not fair to employees to have to show up to a hotel for the shuttle 1.5 hours before their scheduled shift, just to be sure they can get through security. Provide better hearing protection and make sure that the ramp staff actually uses it.

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

    Pros

    A select few great employees, skilled at their positions
    Great management at the Supervisor level
    Had a lot of locations to fly to with benefits

    Cons

    Management above supervisor level had no idea how to run a dept/the entire company
    Consistent HR issues including failures in FMLA, vacation/sick pay, paycheck issues (check doesn't show up), insurance, and other benefits
    Nearly all policies are written to put employees in unfair positions including scheduling, use of sick/ vacation hours, and disciplinary
    Near inability of full-time employees to use flight benefits

    Advice to Management

    Change business model back to caring about passengers
    Stop wasting time and money promoting a "feel-good" atmosphere and then breaking all promises and relationships with ground level employees

    "Best treated as just a job, not the best or worst airline, or place to work."

    I worked at Frontier Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Frontier is that it is in Denver, a fact that the company trades heavily on. An OK place to get experience, plan to move on if no improvement seen.

    Cons

    Constant struggle with management, low and mid level. Most seem to be putting in time till they can qualify for a job at another airline. Directors seem to think that regulations do not apply to them and that rules, company and otherwise, are obstacles to be disregarded or worked around. HR department now shows absolute disdain for current and prospective employees, the very worst I have ever dealt with.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are more intelligent than you believe. You are at best distrusted by them, some have much stronger negative feeling toward you. Accept this and the very real reasons for these feelings, then do whatever it takes to change and improve the situation. You will not acquire or keep the best people with the current HR department staff, big changes needed here.
