I worked at Virgin America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Extremely dynamic (double-edged sword). Virgin America is looked upon favorably in Bay Area. With Virgin on your resume, many doors will be opened for you when it's time to find your next career challenge. Excellent flying perks.

Cons

Little opportunity for internal growth. Pay.

Advice to Management

Keep the Virgin culture alive. Stay a step ahead of the legacies.

    I have been working at Virgin America part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees and the guests are very friendly and have very interesting stories to share. Working there has helped me learn how to handle different types of people and situations. I feel like I am a more patient person.

    Cons

    Having to give our guests any bad news such as letting them know that they have missed their flight and there isn't one until the next day, is a real drag.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I can say is to always have an open ear for your employees.

    Pros

    Lots of really awesome people to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of people that are niave and new to the airline industry. Some of the people in management have poor social skills, poor administrative skills, and have no airline experience that equips them for a job at an airline.

    Advice to Management

    More training needed for ALL airport employees and a mentor program to develop leaders.
