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

Pros

There is a lot of growth in this company and career advancements.

Cons

Employees are not paid fairly for the amount of work and responsibility that is performed.

Advice to Management

The culture and values at this company remain a mystery. There is so much potential in this company, but it all starts by treating the employees with respect. Motivation through fear is not a productive way to run a company.

    Pros

    usually if you are lucky you can flight for free

    Cons

    you cannot always have the privilage to flight with Spirit because, the airplanes usually are broken. the staff is very unprofessional and usually treats customers like bargage.

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As an airline employee you can travel for free as long as the flight is not full. Unfortunately, that is the only advantage to working at Spirit and it is one you would get with any airline.

    Cons

    Management does not care about the employees. We had to start as part timers (20 Hrs/Wk ), and had to purchase our own uniforms which were very low quality and expensive ($275). They took the cost out of our paychecks. Very low wages, not too much above minimum wage. During training we were assured that although starting pay was very low, we would receive raises every 6 months. This was followed by constant wage freezes, so those raises took much longer. It took 3 years just to get up to ALMOST $10/Hr and then they hired a bunch of new people and found reasons to get rid of everyone that had finally gotten their way overdue wage increases.
    They had us on 8.5 Hr shifts (half Hr for unpaid lunch) but they kept us so busy that most of the time we would not be able to take the lunch break and they would refuse to pay us for working that extra half hour. This company started out in Detroit and relocated to Florida because they knew they could abuse the employees and get away with it in Florida

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your employees fairly and pay them a reasonable wage for all the hassles and responsibilities you put on them
