Customer service (Former Employee) – Gatwick Airport – 27 August 2018
I enjoyed my time at easyJet however it takes a toll on your health being in an air conditioned aircraft for 10 hours (maximum) a day. You dont get much of a social life as your days can be very long and can work up to 6 days a week with only 3 days off. I know this seems like an average working week for some people but flying definitely makes you more worn out and make the days so much longer. You could start work at 5am, meaning i would have to leave home around 3.30am, for a 6am flight and not be home until 7pm that day, so it can be very long days, but also very short days too. Everyone I met was really nice and having a good crew makes the day so much better as you can have a laugh and joke or just chat about how your week has been. It was good as you never worked with the same people day to day.
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) – Luton – 15 August 2018
This was the worst job i ever had. Management were not very supportive when things happened during my time there. Hours were long and unsociable. Crewing try to get you by the minute if you go out of hours so they dont have to pay you.
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – London / Gatwick Airport – 5 August 2018
It is a really good company. They take care of their clients as well as their employees. Lots of benefits, lots of opportunities to continue growing inside the company, very dynamic ambiance, positive vibes. Safety first, transparency, good communication. Highly recommended.
Lots of days off and holidays
A simple cold could be very dangerous for your ears because of the changing air pressure
Sure, can be a great place, if you have a managers that believe in you
Accountant (Current Employee) – Luton, Bedfordshire – 29 June 2018
Generally I enjoy working here, my team is great, my direct manager is understanding and provides feedback and has great belief in my ability. It's fairly close to home and the benefits are good. However, if an internal role arose, many times internal candidates were rejected for the roles. In some cases, pre-judged on the ability on whether you can do the job based on whether you possess a certain skill (which is highly discouraging who want to learn/develop).
A lot of the cases, candidates are also judged based on whether they came from a 'top 4' trained company, which again is highly discouraging.
This could be a great place to work, if the mentality of the senior management could change and they could recognise that not everyone who is capable/competent comes from the 'top 4'.
Great work / life balance, pays wells with benefits
Disregarded for internal role if do not possess specific skill, teams can be very 'clique-y'
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Luton, Bedfordshire – 28 March 2018
Working part time, I had an excellent work life balance but the management team didn't look after us as much as would be desired. The work load on individuals is too much therefore you don't get the one to one attention that would be desired.
Passenger Service Agent - Menzies Aviation Ltd. (Former Employee) – Gatwick Airport Station, West Sussex – 7 March 2018
Daily challenge, I learned to put attention to details ,Menzies Aviation great Company with equality culture.Interacting with people from different backgrounds was enjoyable, the hardest side the time to start working.
Material Planner (Former Employee) – Luton Airport – 27 February 2018
Easyjet is most certainly a very good company to work offering excellent benefits and good opportunities for personal development however, this role in particular involved too much sitting down on a desk and lacked iniative, although the job does have the potential to evolve into something better perhaps!
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) – London – 10 January 2018
Long hours, dont get paid for delay just angry passengers to deal with. The eariest wake up call at 2:30 am and you can work anything up to stupid o clock at night. Eating breakfast luch (only if time permits)next to the toilet on the plane not so glamorous. Nice people to work with but very difficult to socialise nearly impossible. Long working hours, sometimes short days or if you lucky to survive standbys have another day off which is unpaid. You have to take a lot in and pretend how happy you are at 4am when you go to work. If you sick often you get into trouble. Money is good but you tired and can’t have your social life as u used to be. Basically like working in the pub just up in the air and clean toilets on turn around etc. Only see places if you are on holiday as min rest 12 hr not enough time, you have to decide to sleep or go sightseeing on a night stop so not much time to enjoy places. Dont het appreciated as an individual.
Role - Crewing Assistant (Former Employee) – Luton – 10 January 2018
The job I had was completely new to me, I had no previous experience in aviation, customer communication, or administration. While working with the company I was afforded many opportunities to learn new skills and improve my work within the company. The work given to me involved different challenges every day, however, the people I worked with and the management especially provided great support, while also letting me work things out for myself first, helping me to improve on a personal level.
Cabin Crew (Current Employee) – Gatwick Airport Station, West Sussex – 25 September 2017
Not a job for someone who enjoys routine as there isn't an ounce of routine to it. Great for someone who enjoys socializing, traveling the world and flying. Great benefits overall such as staff travel, shares, incredible holiday. Not great job security and you won't feel valued as an individual. Not for somebody that can't handle the stress or pressure of always having perfect performance as is crucial in role.
