    I worked at Virgin America full-time

    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.

    I worked at Virgin America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wow at the beginning this was THE place to work! And we all loved it! Best uniforms, great benefits, felt like a huge family and everyone loved being there! We felt pride in what we were doing even if it was a grueling red eye! Boy did that change when the company went public. It only took a few months after going public that you could tell that things were already starting to change. Then the offers to buy us started rolling in. Rumor after rumor and we finally sold out to Alaska and the rest is history. They essentially killed Virgin America even though they will say they want to implement what Virgin America stood for into their workplace, it will never be up to the standard that we created and worked towards!

    Cons

    Sold out to Alaska... Not competitive pay scale, compared to other airlines

    I have been working at Virgin America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Virgin America changed the airline industry on the West Coast and became a great competitor, the culture and brand was amazing, and it's sad to see it go.

    Cons

    None that I can state.

    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

    I have been working at Virgin America full-time for more than a year

    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!
