Airport Operations (Former Employee), Ponce, PR – November 6, 2013
Pros: service oriented industry
Cons: overnight shift conflicted with my pastoral ministry
JetBlue's Corporate culture is awesome. I am very thankful that I had the chance to work for them. It was sad for me to leave this job, but the red-eye hours where taking a toll on my health because I was working a a Pastor also. My co-workers where great and very helpful. This job gave me the opportunity to look at the airline from another point of – more... view. Now I have a better understanding of the complexities this are has. This job gave me lots of opportunities to help customers with tickets sales, baggage, boarding people with special needs, and other. – less

Ground Ops, Airport Ops, Tech Ops (Former Employee), Jamaica, NY – September 25, 2013
Pros: travel, time off, make your own schedule
Cons: it was 2 hours away from where i lived.
the job was so great that i couldn't believe they were paying me to be there. If i lived closer, would have came in and hang with my co workers on my days off if i had the time. It was a 2 hour commute from home via mass transit and i never had any complaints about it. I loved that job.
Reservations Crewmember (Former Employee), Sandy, UT – September 11, 2013
Pros: great people
Cons: the lure of flight benefits and compensation is terrible
I was very excited to start work for JetBlue. I was excited to share the flight benefits, and learn something knew. However it was very clear almost immediately that using the flight benefits was nearly impossible, and the pay did not outweigh the high stress of this job. I learned a lot, and gained some very valuable experience, and made life long – more... friends. However, the pay and benefits package needs an overhaul and I wouldn't advise anyone to work from Salt Lake just for the flight benefits. I worked there for 2 1/2 years and only took 3 trips. – less
Grounds Operations (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – September 9, 2013
Pros: free flights and the workers
Cons: salary, working in hazardous conditions.
I would go into work and look to see where I would be placed that day. I was trained in loading and balancing the aircraft, unloading, fueling, directing and driving the aircraft into dock, customer service, all airports codes and hazmat signals, my day would be one of these services or several services. My co-workers were a wonderful group of people – more... I still talk to today. The hardest part of the job is working in storms, lightning and serious weather conditions. The most enjoyable were the workers and working in lost baggage. – less

A typical day at work was helping our customers with any questions they had about booking flights or canceling flights. I learned patience and how to provide the best customer service. The hardest part of the job was when we had IROPS those are when airports had a significant about of delayed and/or canceled flights because it was hard on our customers. – more...
