I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Able to travel almost anywhere at minimal cost.
Dynamic work environment, always some creative, new fee or new source of revenue.
creative ideas and solution for growth.

Cons

poor work-life balance. Management prefers the employees to stay extra, just for the sake of staying. It's all about appearance.
pay is not competitive. the travel benefits are "included" in your compensation - it is valued at about 10% of your salary, but with flights being mostly full, it is difficult to make use of the benefit.

Advice to Management

Base promotions on the quality and quantity of work, not based on the hours the employee spends at the office.
Work on creating a better work-life balance. be understanding when employees need to leave at a specified time to interact with their children, especially if they then work from home after their children go to bed.

    I worked at Spirit Airlines part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of down time between flights. Friendly workers, mostly west indian chaps.

    Cons

    Horrible moral, people being fired all the time for showing up 1 minute late. Supervisors constantly being replaced. Botched up micromanagement style here, looking to penalize workers instead of correcting. Inadequate and poorly maintained support equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Get newer equipment and also train the heck out of newbies. When I asked for a checkout on the equipment and was told by one supervisor to just drive it like you do your car.

    I worked at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-workers, felt like we were stuck in the same hell hole together. Alot of OT

    Cons

    Extremely overworked, Morale on Mx dep. is on the floor, all the flight benefits they say they give you, you cant really enjoy because you are either always working or the planes are always full. The pay is in no way competitive to other airlines and the only reason why Im still in this miserable place is because Im waiting for jet blue to open a position. No Help from Station Managers all the way up to CEO Ben Baldanza.

    Advice to Management

    This advise is to the board of directives, GET YOUR MONEY AND RUNN!!!! If you keep the same people running this airline the way it is, it will crash to the ground. The previous owners who created spirit airlines should had left this clowns some notes on how to run an airline.
