    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing, improving, diverse, fun atmosphere, travel benefits, great health insurance, 401k, get to change people's opinions of what they've heard about Spirit in the past, unionized, newest plane's on the market

    Cons

    Overall reputation, no profit sharing, no flexibility in scheduling, start pay is $20 an hr, pilots do not have a contract, conflict between higher up's and pilots

    Advice to Management

    Why are we still not profit sharing? It seems as if the higher up's are only concerned about their cut at the end of the year. The drama between you and pilots needs to be cut out; we need an inviting atmosphere that makes good pilots want to work for Spirit, not the constant rumor spreading and emails

    Pros

    Flight Benefits, low hours to keep full health benefits. Fellow employees are amazing!

    The company as a whole cares nothing about you. Company lies to employees to promote their own agenda.

    Fight more for your inflight team.

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is rapidly growing, so you're off reserve fairly quick and the schedule is extremely flexible. Great benefits and the work is easy.

    Cons

    It's an Ultra Low Cost Carrier, yet customers still expect the perks of flying a legacy. Starting pay could be higher and customer service could be improved.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, everyone genuinely wants to do a good job. Good benefit package and great training at the training center.

    Cons

    The actual airline is terrible. They dont have a large enough crew and enough planes so when a flight or crew are delayed EVERYONE is delayed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everyone motivated especially during delays/ cancellations.
