I thoroughly enjoyed my career at Virgin America. The culture, as well as my team mates were incredible. I went to work each day knowing that I was contributing to something great.
A typical work day would include retrieving operational data from the previous day, reviewing it, and categorizing it.
One of the most valuable skills that I learned there was the ability to manage and analyze data. We stored our data in a Filemaker Pro data base, which was then exported to Microsoft Excel for analysis.
I also learned the power of a team working in the same direction, as opposed to a collection of individuals.
The only part of this career that I was not particularly fond of, was the commute. I live in Vacaville CA, which is 70 miles from Virgin America's Headquarters in Burlingame CA.
What I enjoyed the most was seeing us grow from a small start up carrier, to a major force in the airline industry.
I have nothing but good things to say about my career at Virgin America.
Great working environment, travel benefits, awesome co workers
