    I worked at Spirit Airlines full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flight benefits, travel privileges, fun atmosphere. If you’re not reserve, great as a side job.

    Cons

    Cheap tickets mean cheap passengers. Long work days up to 16 hours. Ran for business, not for employees or customers.

    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *Good flight benefits on Luftansa, Air Canada and other good airlines for international, US major carriers domestic (not international), and of course where Spirit flies *Spirit has some of the best health insurance in the industry. Very affordable and good coverage! *Time for part-time work *Lots of time for reading on the plane

    Cons

    *Sometimes it feels if union fees are going down the drain - Spirit does illegal scheduling and then just tells you to file a ticket... *When you first start and are on reserve it is difficult to move any days or get weekends off. I have been at DTW for over a year and will probably still be on reserve for another year... It's hard to make new friends/take college courses when you can't go to any events/classes regularly. IF you can stick it out for 3-4 years you will have more control of your schedule *Starting pay is very minimal. I wouldn't have been able to survive the first year without living with family * Reserve trips are generally the ones no one wants so get ready for lots of red-eyes and blah layovers
