    Pros

    You meet the best people with fun personalities. Cute uniforms. Great company culture. You will never wana let go of your flight benifits.

    Cons

    Not the best pay. Being on reserve is tough. Crashpads are tough and Alaska Airlines is talking over so the company culture is dying

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, especially once holding a line. Flight benefits (domestic... international not as great as major airlines), nonroutine (I love it), new friends, chill culture, opportunity to make more money if you want!

    Cons

    Supervisors are awful and impossible to get a hold of, email, or get anything fixed. Pay could be better, but it will be changing soon with Alaska! Whoop!

    I successfully completed the first step of the interview process but I am not employed currently

    Pros

    Great company to work for, great benefits, great people working for the company making it even better. I love working with people and this provides plenty of opportunity to meet many people from all walks of life.

    Cons

    I have not successfully completed the interview process so I am unsure of the cons of working for the company. I hope to be employed very soon. From what I’ve heard the schedule can be challenging for some if they are not used to it.

    Management has changed and Alaska isn't looking better

    Pros

    Great group of teammates in every department that still have the virgin spirit of running a great airline and having a good time while you do it. Nice benefits package.

    Cons

    Management doesn't follow that code like it used to and has turned to micromanaging and taking away the empowerment that frontline teammates used to have to show our guests that this is the greatest airline. It's limited to individual teams who still exude the virgin brand of "Screw it, Let's do it"

    Pros

    Amazing teammates, wonderful support among colleagues

    Cons

    Awful pay, broken promises, terrible work rules and terrible management. The only bright spot about working for this airline was the support we had from each other. If you are a pilot or flight attendant do yourself a favor and work for a real airline. Virgin's potential was squandered by bad management and inexperience. The Eskimo will never allow the Virgin spirit to survive...brace yourselves.
