Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at JetBlue part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Job
Free flights
No overbooking
Allow you to be part time if you want it.

Cons

Give pilots 10 hours rest but work Flight attendants to unsafe levels of exhaustion. 18 plus hours. Inflight crews should all be on the same duty times.
Benefits are expensive
Cheap uniforms
VERY unorganized during weather or maintenance delays (IROP'S)
Very poor middle management.
Very poor pay yet expected to live in BOSTON OR NY etc.
Long wait times trying to reach crew scheduling.
NO UNIONS
Filthy aircrafts, Tv's that are often broken.
CEO never attends base meetings or I haven't seen him at one in 2 years.
Offer speak up surveys but never change anything for positive.
Building a hotel in MCO instead of fixing our airline.

Advice to Management

Listen and learn from your front line people. Stop making stupid decisions. Learn from the big guys. How does the FAA let you get away with some of the things you do?

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, lots of technology. It was a great place to work when I started. A lot of Fun, Integrity, Passion and amazing people to work with. It was the last airline that I wanted to work for.

    Cons

    A lot of back staving. You have to CYA most of the time because the arrows come from EVERY direction. Everything is about the money and not about the caring for the employees. There is a lot of favoritism. There is no support for the station management team. A lot of false promises. If they like you they keep you. If you work hard and they don't like you or like some else more than you, then you are lured into being dismissed.

    Advice to Management

    Back up your people that work hard to keep the airline running. People feel betrayed by false expectations of things that have been promised but not executed. The very top sends mixed messages to the middle and the bottom. There is no consistency and overall no trust. Why is it that your recruiting team doesn't tell people during orientation that "this is the last airline you will work for" anymore like when I started. ELT looks like a derailed train wreck when it comes to decision making, specially during IROPS. Wow! What a disappointment.
