    I worked at JetBlue (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Modern uniforms. Updated aircrafts. Great destinations.

    Cons

    Medical benefits need better coverage and much lower or non existant premium. Coaching policy needs lots of improvement. Collaborative representation is a must as there are loopholes on policy against employees. Some managers need to be replaced for more affable ones. Take care of your employees and they be more happy. Etc...

    Advice to Management

    In need to replace the managers that create uneasiness and uncomfortable work environment. MCO.

    Pros

    Great company values, happy employees, once you successfully complete training, you're treated like family.

    Cons

    Even once you pass both interviews, you are not guaranteed the job. So make sure you have a back up plan just in case. A lot of waiting around to begin training, 38 dollars per day for a 4 week training class, very long hours, a lot of "craming" and very little time to sleep and study. I think it's not bad for a person that is retired and has money saved up or a young person that doesn't have bills, because aside from it being one of the coolest jobs ever, most people are there to get paid. However, the way that they go about training is as if it's a school, and you either fail or pass, if you fail you have to go back home and get your own ride there and hopefully you can pay your bills with the 38 dollars a day that they gave you. So my advice is to make sure you can accommodate you're entire personal life around that because if you fail a test retake or get too many counselings you will be getting sent home.

    Advice to Management

    Trainers should be a little more helpful and understanding. Training should feel more like learning about the job and less like an elimination process. And the pay should be more accommodating.

    Only work 15 days a month. Schedule is administered on a monthly basis. Fly for free domestically & minimal charge for international travel. Full benefits, profit sharing & stock options at a discount. You're your own boss. No managers on trips micromanaging flight crew. Full pay for cancelled flights & deadheading flights (flying as a passenger).

    Not paid for boarding or extended delays until you legally timeout. Some long days.
