    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flights benefits like with any airline. Higher wage compared to other low-cost carriers. Jumpseat bidding based on first come- first serve basis.

    Cons

    Difficult to commute to base with only 3 flights a day from home. Automatic points for any call out. Full benefits don't start till after 6 months of graduating. No answer when trying to contact IT, or other departments for help on log-ins, crew pay, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of attention for help, is what has many employees leaving for other airlines.

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Really good team members. Fun place to work. Can get things done if you have the right Manager. Good for initial career growth.

    Cons

    Too much work. The management doesn't hire enough people to save costs especially in the Technical field. Nobody really appreaciates extra effort and work put to improve things. Poor benefits and paid time off compared to other airlines.

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure you have enough employees in your technical and engineering teams to support your ever growing fleet. As your fleet grows at least at some point your number of employees should grow. Provide better Paid time off, 401K and medical.

    Cons

    Senior Management is not what they pretend to be There is a tolerance of unprofessional behavior and actions Small raises No enough vacation time. Forced to call out sick to use your time kind of a dictatorship thing going on in some departments Senior management lives in a bubble and really does not understand what goes on really. The seating arrangement are horrible The open office concept is inefficient and...
