    Current Employee - Flight Attendant in Las Vegas, NV (US)

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Company is growing like crazy so you will have high seniority in a short time which is so uncommon in the airline industry ( seniority is everything in the airline industry)
    - Currently have 70 planes but Spirit just purchased 130 more.
    - Great Travel benefits (Travel on pretty much any airline not just spirit for free on standby, some family members also fly for free on other airlines for a small fee)
    - VERY FLEXIBLE, Once you get your monthly schedule you can get rid of as many assignments as you want or add or trade them online (theres no limit) perfect for someone who is in school or has another job.
    - Brand new, Spacious Airbus airplanes.
    - The job is so easy because there is no first class or complimentary beverage services so you run through the cabin offering stuff for sale and then have the whole flight to chill. (perfect for someone thats in school or studying)
    - Very strong union
    - Have various bases that are really easy to get into (Bases in order from most senior to junior - Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Dallas, Chicago)
    - One of the best insurance plans for the airline industry. (I only pay 25$ a month for full Dental, Vision, Health and Medical)
    - AWESOME co workers (Most are younger people since its a newer airline)
    -Pay Raise coming soon
    - Spirit puts its flight attendants and pilots in some of the best hotels. (Even better then some of the international airlines)
    -Rarely see management
    - One of the most profitable airlines.
    - Flights go by smoothly because we charge for bags so theres no fuss about carry on items.
    -Ability to make a lot of money (By Onboard sales commission, Credit card advertisements...ect.)

    Cons

    - Passengers don't understand the business model so they tend to complain, thus causing Spirit to have a bad reputation.
    - Only flies in North America (not to Europe or Asia)
    - Don't always have the supplies at hand when needed (like Ice Scoops, or air freshener)
    - Because the union is so good there are some bad apples that are still around that should have left such a long time ago
    - Management is so small so its hard to get a response or get in contact when necessary.
    - Airplanes don't get cleaned like they are supposed to by the airports so you end up cleaning the cabin usually.
    - You usually have to fly on other airlines when traveling personally because the flights are always so full
    - No Commuter Clause

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make our business model known to customers so they aren't shocked by the fees.

    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlantic City, NJ (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Atlantic City, NJ (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Spirit Airlines in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my application online, I received an invitation for an invite only group interview about a week later. The interview had about 120 people who showed up and was broken up into 3 different phases.

    Phase 1: Each person goes up one by one. They each state their name, where they're from and the number they give you during check in. You then pick a question out of a bowl and you have to answer it. After everyone goes they give you a 30 minute break and they make their first cuts. If your number is called, that means you didn't make it to the next round.

    Phase 2: after a 45 minute break, they break the remaining candidates in 2 groups. then each group is broken up into smaller groups if 5-6 people. You and your group have to create your own airline and come up with 5 qualities that your airline will have. but BEWARE they are watching you the entire time! Make sure you're you're seriously participating! They give you about 20 minutes to do everything, then each group has to present their airlines to the other groups. After that they give you an hour break. When you get back they make the second cuts. If you make it to this point, they call you up one by one to schedule your individual interview for the next day.

    Phase 3: Be prepared to wait 2-3 hours after your scheduled time to finally be interviewed. but ARRIVE ON TIME. they take notice of that. The interview is conducted by 2 representatives at a table so its 2:1. The interview consists of reading something aloud (pretty much what the flight attendants say in the beginning of a flight before take off. The thing you read has blank spaces where you have to come up with a destination and arrival time to fill in). After that they ask you a couple questions like 'Tell me about yourself" and "Tell me about a time where you had experienced some confrontation at the workplace". etc. Then they send you back into the waiting room. After about 20-30 minutes that every one in your time slot goes, they call everyone up and put everyone in two groups. One group consists of the people who made it, the other are the ones who are getting cut. If you make it, you'll be brought in for fingerprinting, drug testing and the back ground check, etc
