FLIGHT ATTENDANT (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 9, 2016
Good company to start a flight attendant career. Job/Life balance is sufficient once you are off reserve. The flight attendants who work here are wonderful. The calling off policy when sick and can provide documentation is trash, but besides that all is well.
Fleet Service Agent (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – August 1, 2016
Employees unionized and the company laid everyone off before the union was put into effect. Company payed poorly for the area and the cost of living. Benefits were horrible I lost half my pay to health coverage for my family which left me with nothing to live off of in the end.
poor health benefits, poor pay for the area, poor management
Flight Attendant duties; Safety,Customer Service, General Boarding Procedures, Emergency Procedures. The management is great. I love the work environment. Frontier Airlines is like a family instead of just co-workers.
Not a good place if you are looking for good management
Reservations Agent (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 26, 2016
I learned that all airlines are not alike. This place was in dire need of good management but they could not see it. They did not want to change or modernize things like using the computer instead of doing everything via paper. Great co-workers, bad shifts. They no longer have the reservations center now, they fired everyone and outsourced it all around a year ago.
Very busy, High stress environment, meet new people
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 24, 2016
A typical day at work was, busy, busy, busy! And I loved it. If you love the energy of a fast paced, busy, environment, you would love working at Frontier. Never a dull moment. You meet all kinds of different people from all walks of life. The money isn't where it's at. It's hard work and demanding. But I loved it. Most of my friends I have, I met through Frontier. A great group of people. My main managers were wonderful. Corporate management and the new owners and CEO was more difficult to adjust to. Challenging to go to an Ultra Low Cost Airline. Be prepared for upset passengers, paying for everything. Also, the weather can be an issue, causing delays and irregular operations. But, if you are working with people you like doing what you love, there's nothing that can keep you down.
Flexible working days and hours, Meeting new people, flight benefits on Frontier as well as other carriers.
Employee (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 6, 2016
Frontier has yet to grasp a successful business plan to retain employees and build a successful workforce. Until executive management learns how to support morale, and speak to their people, they will continue to run a mediocre operation. Job seekers, if you need the job for experience, take it. If you're a seasoned or mid-career professional, you will NOT be compensated for what you do.
Flight Benefits- still extremely hard to get on.
Management personnel are condescending individuals who pride themselves in "knowing more than you".
Passenger Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – June 27, 2016
Well, a typical day at work would be all the planes arriving and departing on time as scheduled keeping the day going smoother and our frontier family happy. Being a passenger service agent I learned a lot about the dangers in aircraft as well as inside the airport. There is a substantial amount of rules and obligations as well as the task that comes with the subscribed duty . My Co-workers were amazing we got along pretty well took the time out to get to know who we are working with and it makes a stronger healthier team. The hardest part of the job was checking in passengers that had special needs because its a lot and sometimes gets over looked which I try my best not to. The most enjoyable part was communicating with the passengers.
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – June 15, 2016
We had extensive training and shortly after learning all the jobs on the ramp we were outsourced to a foreign company with no flight benefits. I have new friends from my experience with Frontier and we all have stayed in the Airline industry but few stayed with Frontier.
It can be exciting & fun & other times torturous & stressful. You have to have thick skin & be assertive. Hardest part of the job is fighting exhaustion & learning to not have any set sleep patterns. The call out policy is unreasonable & so the result is a lot of the flight attendants fly sick or point out. But it's definitely better than serving & the people have a little more respect for your job. They depend on you & you do have to have good decision making skills & thinking on your feet. I'm starting to like it more & more but it has been hard on my body. Just takes some gettting used to.
Upbeat during an ownership aquistion change and system data change.
Revenue Accounting Audit Specialist (Current Employee) – Denver Co – May 19, 2016
Busy days with changes as new processes and systems are being fine tuned. In the accounting area there are so many types as with any company there is always something new to learn that may connect to a process you are working. Finding a bigger picture of the company. Management has been changing with both new hires and moves and all seem to be working well with these changes. There is a kinship with coworkers and for the most part very willing to help with any requests you might have. It is difficult at times to understand the complaints and mind set of travelers, the lack of self responsibility. Completing tasks, audits and daily duties provides a satisfaction of accomplishment.
Upbeat, self rewarding, flight benefits
Many changes all at once from ownership to systems fast changes.
Long ago cared about their customers, now with new owner, only care about money, not employees or customers
CSR (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 16, 2016
A typical day at work was always high stress, both in dealing with the customers and the flight schedules. In most cases, if the leads were doing their jobs, it made the day pretty decent. Most of my co-workers were decent, so were slackers, but because they kissed up to management, got away with it. Obviously, one of the hardest parts of the job was irregular ops. But later, the hardest part was not being able to use hard earned flight benefits because there were no open seats.
Worked my way up from Sales agent on the floor to Junior Business Analyst. Enjoyable atmosphere
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 16, 2016
<Cendant very organized and professional organization. I was laid off in 2002. Shortly after the company disbanded and parts were sold off the bidders. Good place to work. Understanding after off phones in new position. Great Human Resources dept - very interactive with employees.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 3, 2016
Working for any airline you will always come home with a story. Typically the airline employees are a family - everyone takes care of one another. You must be able to think on your feet and willing to work long hours in unexpected circumstances or poor weather conditions. The upper management is typical of any large corporation and there are often frustrations and unfair policies. However, most immediate supervisors and managers were wonderful to speak to. The company, however, has outsourced all employees for customer service roles since I left, and I no longer know what the current working environment is like, although I hear mixed reviews.
Free travel if you can get on a flight, great co-workers
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – April 25, 2016
Customers are constantly mad at you in this job whether it be because of a delayed or cancelled flight, or their luggage is missing, or they missed their flight, it's always a hard and stressful environment, my managers were never fair with time off and gave write up's for no reason. I liked my co-workers and got along with most of them
no breaks, hard schedual, little pay for the work you are doing
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – April 20, 2016
I like the training that was received in Denver CO. The instructors had only so much time to teach in very little time, but they would review with you if needed. They are awesome. I like the customers. The customers were the best part of the job even when they were being difficult. learning a program that you only had one day to review. It is always exciting learn new software.
