    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The leadership at spirit is some of the best I have ever experienced or heard about. I have mostly interacted with leadership in the training department to be more specific. I know, without a doubt, our skillset as instructors is valued highly by our leadership. These are the kind of bosses that make you WANT to work effectively and efficiently. They supplement professional development and set you up for success. Spirit often talks about making customers into 'super fans' but the real secret is that they care for us so much, that we become 'super fans' and this leads to a great service/product for the customer. They invest in their people heavily. Also communication from execs to the lowest level and everywhere in-between, is great!

    Cons

    Airline job security. The industry fluctuates but you will find this at ANY airline. However, at spirit, this is much less of a worry.

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time

    Pros

    1. Industry leading contract with very flexible schedule and strong soft pay opportunities. (Can drop schedule completely to zero when grid is green) 2. Quickly growing company (seniority, planes, routes, equipment, authorizations) 3. Crews are fun to work with (by design). 4. Quick upgrade ~3yrs 5. Pay raises on the horizon (2021-2022) then new contract negotiations.

    Cons

    1. Pay is less than some legacy carriers (offsetted by great QOL features in contract so “con” is subjective”) 2. ? Not much else. Great place to work.

    Pros

    You get more experience than any other job. If you're good enough to handle working under presure, then its perfect. you'll see other jobs like nothing compare to this one.

    Cons

    Sometimes is too much so you get frustrated and over time depressed, course... if you dont really like airports, lots of customers and plane's noises.
