Avoid Working at Frontier Airlins
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 22, 2018
You start off on "Reserve" meaning you can only earn a limited amount of hours per month, they say they will gaurauntee at least 75 hours per month but hardly do you ever reach that on reserve.
The time on reserve for most new flight attendants is around 8months to a year.
You have to basically move to the city where the airport is located because you will get called in to be at work in sometimes only an hour's notice.
Moreover, the insurance/benefits will deduct too much from an already scrawny check. BUT WAIT, that's not all, to simply check your schedule, you get another 20 bucks deducted monthly.
On top of that, when you get to go work you will frequently find that the planes have issues or the pilots time out and can't fly because the scheduling is horrible, Thus forcing you to spend the night in another city. So say goodbye to your Friday night plans because that 8pm estimated time of arrival has now turned into a Saturday 12pm arrival.
The free flight passes and health insurance don't do much to balance the pros/cons.
Please do not work here unless you really need a job and don't become complacent with the horrible standards they have set. Strive for better.
One thing I will say, it will teach you patience and make you appreciate other things that some employers will do better.
Free flight passes, health insurance
scheduling, constant mistakes, rude customers, machine issues..
