    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.

    Flexibility once you build seniority which is easier to do here than at other mainlines. Free flights and discounted flights, layovers that get better as you gain seniority, making a lot of new friends.

    Cons

    Weird hours as you might expect from any airline &Commuting gets old quickly if you end up doing that.
