      Pros

      Same perks as any airline except being that its smaller than the major airlines you accrue seniority in less time, so your time is worth more. Premium pay scale(overtime pay) so your overtime is where the money is at.

      Cons

      Reserves are underpaid so your first year will most likely be financial struggle. Alot of Division between departments. Contract negociations in place. Profit sharing not so good

      not worth working there full time

      Pros

      flight benefits; standby is free plus taxes if travel abroad with jetblue. After six months six months of employment they give you access to fly with other airlines at a discounted rate. Working there two days a week is a good deal.

      Cons

      Pay; being forced to work past your shift "shift freeze," ghetto crew members and supervisors. The biggest drawback about working for Jetblue in Boston was that the employees parking garage was accross the river in another town, and you had to get there 30 minutes before your shift, in order to justify coming in late if the bridge went up. Moreover, besides the fact that all employees had to be at the garage 30 minutes before their shift started, they would not pay you for that time, or the time that was spend waiting for the bridge to go down. Everyone that works there feels emotional and physically abused.

      A part/time Job You Can Sink Your Teeth Into

      Pros

      Incredibly diverse set of colleagues A grass-roots work environment where you feel like a professional Great travel benefits, access to health and dental at 30 hours, performance bonuses and profit sharing no matter how low you are on the totem pole, Easy to trade to tailor your schedule to your life after 90 days. Great training down in Florida. Very good direct relationship between crew and management. No union needed (yet) People love the company (and will tell you that when they see you in uniform). Competitive starting pay rate. Able to snag pass rider seats on our own flights pretty readily.

      Cons

      The company is evolving from founding principles slightly and work conditions are slowly changing too to look like the big guys. Like any airline job, you can get bounced quickly if you aren't dependable (on-time, safe, polite to colleagues. (this is actually also a plus of working for Jet Blue if you care about your work) Low "top out" for senior hourly employees compared to major airlines. Seemingly many mid-managers from HQ are clueless about how the job actually works on the ramp and at the counters...so their interventions can be frustrating and counterproductive. Very limited upward mobility within the company, especially from the field to HQ positions.
