    Pros

    Fast growing company, good travel and health benefits. Great place to meet people.

    Improve employee morale by promoting recognition/reward programs, better salary or bonuses, improve travel benefits, better layover hotels and cities overseas.

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule. You move up in. Seniority quickly because it's growing so fast. Quality of life can be good for those reasons.

    Cons

    Management is not consistent or very helpful. Corporate is all over the place trying to implement new things but it usually ends in chaos. Payroll messes up my check frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and it will show

    "Low Pay; Long Hours - Not what HR makes it out to be"

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

    Pros

    Flight benefits are amazing, Some great people, fun workplace environment (when you have the time to enjoy yourself).

    Cons

    discount airline means discount employees. Low pay and long hours. Since the airline is a nonstop operation, management places no focus/importance of having a work/life balance. HR promises opportunity for growth, however, it's all up to your manager. If your direct manager/supervisors need you, they will block your request to move into another department. Other than the flight benefits, the other benefits provided by spirit aren't all that great.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on developing your employees.
    - Actually show that you care about your employees by providing decent pay and decent benefits. You can stop pretending you care by giving us "Popcorn Wednesdays". Un-buttered Popcorn in a bag doesn't pay our bills.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are amazing, I can usually get the days off I need through dropping or trading, most passengers are great

    The reputation. Although we are working hard to improve it, it's hard to get people over the perception, especially when they don't read and understand the fees.

    I worked at Spirit Airlines full-time

    Pros

    HR was GREAT ! Very hands on, willingly to answer all questions. Alot of community involvement(I.E. habitat for humanity volunteer).

    Cons

    Training was not formal, very unorganized and unclear. Department seemed to be unwelcoming, felt like trying to infiltrate a click.

    Advice to Management

    Training platform should be more organized and monitored, That way new hires are clear on details of the job duties.
