Pros

The best reason bar none to work for this company is the people! One LUV is not just a feeling, everyone seems to embrace it. It's just one gigantic family. While the starting pay may not be the greatest, there is ample room to grow and the pay steps further along up the line are a nice incentive to put in the time.

Cons

As stated above, the starting rate for most entry level positions is rather low. Also, the sometimes hectic rotating schedule could be a turn off for those seeking a steady, regular hours type position. In my opinion, that is the nature of the industry, not necessarily a con against the company. YMMV

Advice to Management

Continue to lead the company with your unique blend of innovation, fun-loving attitude, and thr warrior spirit that got us this far.

    Pros

    great travel benefits and health insurance as well as pay increases the longer you work there. overall a great environment if you cannot stand the nine to five thing. this allows you to be a more dynamic individual

    Cons

    terrible uniforms, employee review system untrustworthy. remember not to reveal too much to people you don't know. you tend to get close to people quickly but gossip spreads faster in aviation folks..word to the wise. also mind your p's and q's you never know who is watching
