Pros: Benefits, growth
Typical day: Park in the garage, walk to the elevator, wait for a bus, go to your terminal stop, walk in and clock in. It takes 15min-30min to get to where you need to go when you park. After that, check the board and see where you are and who you are working with. You'll be assigned flights on the ramp or a carousel in the bag room. Bag room: sit at the carousel all day and put luggage in a cart after you scan it. Ramp: Plane service, load/unload luggage, and wing walk it out to taxi. It is a demanding job but you can take a lot of breaks either between flights or a scheduled break in the bag room. At the end of the day clock out and do step 1 in reverse. You'll earn about an extra hour a day at the airport by going to and leaving jetblue, but hey, parking is free if you find a spot.
Learned: Airport jobs are complex and require a lot of security and sweating. Be prepared to do your best and make sure those planes go out on time and the luggage isn't missing. At first, it's just a job but if you enjoy it and work hard it can be a career you'll like going to.
Management: As any other work place, you have good and bad managers. They all do their job, though. I've never had a problem with management or the HR team.
Co-workers: Jetblue hires quality people. You shouldn't have any big problems with any of the crewmembers. It's a team environment. As long as everyone does their part, it works out.
Hardest part: Getting to work, dealing with heavy luggage when it's 100 degrees/raining, and making sure you follow all of the procedures when it comes to benefits and overtime. – more... If you work nights and the plane is delayed, you're stuck there. Another hard part is the crazy schedules you'll be facing when you're a "baby blue." You might not get weekends off until about 4 years into it. I hope you're ready to have a social life like someone in medical school.
Enjoyable: It's a pretty cool job. You're working with the planes. Giant metal tubes that fly in the air. If you get past all of the training and you're not fired or sick of it by then; Work hard and you can definitely make a career out of it. If you don't like it, job search and leave on good terms and you'll have jetblue on the resume. Flying benefits are also great. You fly FREE on jetblue and you can fly for cheap with partner airlines. Just remember, free flying doesn't put food on the table. – less
