    I have been working at JetBlue part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, flight benefits

    Cons

    Can have poor flexibility if you can't trade a shift. There is no such thing as sick time. Also, pay based on time in job rather than quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees the way you expect employees to treat customers.

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

    Pros

    Innovative company with some really great ideas.
    The Crewmembers I work with are great. In the trenches, teams come together to pull through remarkably well.
    Flight benefits are a great idea and work well for the avid traveler. However it's not a stress free system.

    Cons

    NO work/life balance.
    Office space is cramped and leadership doesn't see this as a problem. Their solution is to cut cubicle space in half. Taking phone calls is inconvenient to your neighbors and is more than a little stressful.
    No training/tuition reimbursement for any job-related trainings. JetBlue has a great program for those who do not possess a 4 year degree, but if you need anything more than that you're out of luck.
    Most work travel you actually have to fly standby for. Ironic being an airline and you cannot purchase a seat usually if you're flying somewhere JetBlue doesn't fly.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your Crewmembers. Apply policies consistently across the organization. Offer some kind of training reimbursement for Crewmembers as part of their compensation. This would demonstrate your willingness to invest in your Crewmembers to promote growth.

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

    Pros

    Flight benefits are the best reason to work here. Their system is the best and fairest in the industry, standby's are cleared by check in time and not by seniority like the big airlines. Healthcare is okay it becomes expensive if you have chronic health problems or need to add your family members. Profit sharing, 401k are good.

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism sups and managers hired their friends and protected them from p.g.'s loc's etc. Good news though is that new hires are getting promoted fast as the seniors are so disgruntled they are not applying for anything. Mandatory overtime is almost an everyday occurrence in the summer(busiest season). Expect it as well during bad weather (b6 does not handle irops well).

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well and in turn they will be happy to go above and beyond for the customers.

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time

    Pros

    In my opinion, the flight benefits are a definite perk as long as you have a boss who supports you using your vacation time and if you can find a good manager to work for, you can have a lot of autonomy in your work.

    Cons

    Personally, I've consistently experienced discrimination that has not been addressed by HR and makes me want to leave. Compensation for my role is below industry norms.

    Pros

    You get paid for everything you do for the company such as additional for doing international flights additional for flying red eyes and you don't have to pay for anything to start out.

    Cons

    None none none none none. There are no cons however I'm been prompted to write at least twenty words. None none none none

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work
