    Current Employee - Crew Scheduling in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Frontier Airlines full-time

    Pros

    there are a lot of areas where the benefits and level of service are as good as the legacy carriers. flight benefits on f9 and other carriers is fairly well. I would say most say most of the employees here and the processes are at the same quality level as your major carriers in the country. There is a ton of schedule flexibility if you aren't in a 9-5 position.

    Cons

    it is a low cost carrier, there are some ways that they have cut costs that haven't worked out well from the operational perspective. there can also be some communication issues amongst the departments.

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

    Pros

    In your time at Frontier you will be involved in multiple roles/projects its great if you want to learn more about yourself and your professional interests.

    Cons

    The company has very limited growth opportunities and they do not invest in their employees it's simply just another person to do the job. The hours exceed way past 40 hours week and they will ask you to work on your paid time off. The department is so understaffed and requires that everyone does 2-3 jobs at a time.
