      Pros

      Amazing training, amazing stuff. Embraces the true NZ culture and makes you feel proud sharing with the world.

      Cons

      Not much. Maybe just like every job, you may work with someone that you don’t click with. The good thing is, every flight your on with a new crew.

      Pros

      - Good people - Good staff discounts (i.e. flights, retail, travel etc.)

      Cons

      - Little to no induction - Not so good for young professional (no training budget, lack of structure, no progression, no performance chats, lack of mentoring) - Does not feel like you are working for an Airline - Not modern and is resistant to change - Low pay compared to market - No concept of being "one" Airline. Teams are all disjointed from one another - Politics and very slow

      Great Company with Great Culture

      Sep 30, 2020 - Short Haul Cabin Crew

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of travel - got to see a lot of NZ/AUS with this job. quite a bit of flexibility with shifts, six weeks annual leave per year. Discounted flights and accommodation and the ability to fly stand-by. Pay is decent considering the job isn't necessarily hard or stressful. Most people have a good attitude and are a fun to work with. The company has a good culture and there's lots of opportunities to do good things within the community if you want to (in your own time), but there's no pressure to partake in these activities if you don't want to.

      Cons

      Promotions are very competitive. Hours and be long and job sometimes requires you to be away from home quite a fair bit. You have to be available weekends and public holidays.
