Flying benefits and being able to bid for a schedule each month as opposed to being given one. (Which they don’t even take into consideration)
You are given sick time but cannot use it because there’s never enough reserve flight attendants available so you have no one to cover you & management does not care. You could be bleeding out in the hospital, even a doctors note won’t get you excused. They will fire you for anything. You also get reprimanded if they send you somewhere else for a trip or training but can’t find your way back home. They don’t even alert you when people you’ve worked with get sick so you’re unaware of having an infection of some sort.6

Movement up in the company is super hard to attain and comes with many many years of presence in the company. The pay is truly awful. Housekeepers in nearby hotels get paid better than what you get paid and they still expect you to take your job overly serious. There are obviously some good people and some not so nice people, but this is a good job for someone who really does not need the job to pay bills, support a family, anything. This is a job for someone in which money does not matter or is a priority because they will work you, expect you to work a lot and never compensate you correctly. ONLY benefit is free STANDBY flights but good luck getting the time off to do that. Nearly impossible.

It's a growing company and the benefits are great if you and your family likes to travel. Shift trades is also great, allows you to make adjustment to take care of personal things or attend school.
Supervisors and management only think about their personal gain within the company,and there is no togetherness within the departments. Blame Always roll down hill to save one's job.

The benefits (not just flight benefits) They try to feed you for all major holidays
The culture is not the same They don’t really care about there employees comfortability Unless you want to be an inflight instructor not much room for growth

Young company with a great work environment. Great travel benefits (free flights on jetBlue plus several agreements with other airlines).
The compensation side leaves a lot to be desired. No bonuses, very little profit sharing, and very little opportunity for significant raises. Few promotion opportunities.3

Travel benefits (when you aren’t working so much that you can actually use them)
Work/life balance, taken advantage of bc you aren’t protected by a union2

Jetblue has a great corporate culture. The flight benefits are a definite bonus, but can be tricky to get on if you are traveling with your family. Reservation agents can work out of their home which is a great benefit to those who wish. I was also able to work 4- 10 hour days which allowed for a 3 day weekend which was fantastic.
The downside of working at Jetblue is that it is a 24/7 business so working weekends is necessary in some jobs. This can be difficult for families as mom's and dads are off on different days.

Travel benefits... free if you travel with jetblue only pay taxes if you go international. If you travel with other airlines you pay a fee. Your schedule is very flexible as long as you meet a minimum amount every quarter you can trade as much or as little as you want.
Like in any other job you always will find supervisor with preferences. You are always prone to get in trouble for minimal effort. Uniform is a very big deal that can get you in a lot of trouble if not 100% in compliance.
