      Pros

      Close knit community great reserve schedules 13-16 days off a month great teammate environment

      Cons

      With the good comes the bad... If you commute, it can be challenging since VX does not fly everywhere. Not being able to commute on your own airlines can pose some commuter problems. Watch out for burned out JFK flight Attendants that hate their job- they try to make new flight attendants miserable. Watch out for Megan and her click. ( it's a small base and they know they can get away with it)

      Pros

      Diverse and inclusive company. Progressive policies.

      Cons

      Dismal pay. Scheduling and management were not consistent in their policies. No sense of loyalty to their crew. Pilots were often sexist and even egotistical at times.
