    I worked at GoJet Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers were slightly enjoyable, I guess.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING If you are not a pilot, director, or VP, you are absolutely worthless and upper management makes sure that you are aware of that fact. If you transfer departments, even if you have worked in the company for years, you are expected to take a pay cut back to the entry level pay. This makes advancement IMPOSSIBLE. They company LOVES to play victim, especially when COVID-19 hit. They act like this is what caused their sister companies to go under. But fact is both were going to end operations within the year because RICK LEACH has mismanaged this company financially until it blew up in his face. It caused hundreds of us to loose his job. It was absolutely comical that so many of us were laid off - with still a month to have to work- and he was sending us emails begging us to contact our congressmen and women to try to get the company qualified for the CARES Act. Pathetic management. The company doesn’t even have a HR department, and they make sure we know it, and treat us as such.

    Pros

    Intro into the the world of aviation! Flying benefits! Meeting/making new friends!

    Cons

    Crew Scheduling and management blatantly discriminate! They make sure certain classes don’t fly or pick up trips outside of the guaranteed hours. Offer more training on tools and systems that will be frequently used outside of training.

    Pros

    Good place to build your time quickly. Upgrade time is very fast. Good bonus structure. Options to move on quickly.

    Cons

    A lot of junior man assignments, meaning you won't get home when expected. Pay careful attention to your pay. Frequent mistakes and hard to get it corrected.

    Horrible management! I got fired and when asked why I got fired they refused to provide a reason! The managements and instructors like to gossip about the staff and trainees they are very rude and like to intimidate you

    I have been working at GoJet Airlines full-time

    Pros

    traveling, work with some interesting and loving people.

    Cons

    the company itself is a con. They are always out to "get you" if you are a flight attendant but allow pilots to get away with everything. Even if you are a great worker, you still have to walk on eggshells.

    I worked at GoJet Airlines full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working here will definitely test your ability to take abuse and learn when NOT to stand up for yourself or fellow employees, and keep you humble, in regards to classism. You are NOT better than, or as good as... You will learn that any fairness you are treated to, must come from within, and require no validation or recognition from anyone or anywhere else. You will learn to survive on the least amount of money, someone can make in this industry, with no backing from union or management. Creativity and determination will be something that you must exercise with vigor, and gain no reward, other than knowing that you have accomplished a gain in karmic balance. You will learn to hide illness, grief, anxiety and truth, from your managers on all levels. You will learn that others do so, often in large amounts of alcohol consumption, and you will learn not to judge them for this. You will rise in the ranks, VERY quickly, as so many people rush away or are tossed away, in a short period of time. You will learn that "the man" is not your friend, unless you ARE "the man". You will most likely get unemployment, easily, when you are dismissed. There will be no argument, as chances are, you were not dismissed with valid reason or dignity.

    Cons

    Much like the movie called, Battle Royale. No union representation, even from union reps. FAA rules broken on the regular, by management, crew scheduling and crew members. Unsafe and impossible work conditions. Lawsuits can be costly and drawn out over years because of location of company headquarters, depending on where you were stationed, and FAA investigations, when and if you finally decide on litigation.
