    I worked at JetBlue full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    flight benefits; standby is free plus taxes if travel abroad with jetblue. After six months six months of employment they give you access to fly with other airlines at a discounted rate. Working there two days a week is a good deal.

    Cons

    Pay; being forced to work past your shift "shift freeze," ghetto crew members and supervisors. The biggest drawback about working for Jetblue in Boston was that the employees parking garage was accross the river in another town, and you had to get there 30 minutes before your shift, in order to justify coming in late if the bridge went up. Moreover, besides the fact that all employees had to be at the garage 30... minutes before their shift started, they would not pay you for that time, or the time that was spend waiting for the bridge to go down. Everyone that works there feels emotional and physically abused.

    Advice to Management

    Once in a while companies gets the opportunity to hire amazing good people. In Jetblue's case that was not an issue. Crew member used to vote this airline as one of the best places to work at. That's not the case anymore because this company really took hiring good over qualified people for granted. Now most of the people that work there just don't care and are very ghetto. Jetblue is so focused on growing and... expanding that they have completely neglected their biggest asset, and that being their employees. In all, your "one-size" fits all policies (Blue Book Value) are trash.
