    Pros

    Free Flights if you can get on

    Friendly coworkers
    Flexible Schedules

    Cons

    Ready reserve
    1300 hr per year cap
    pay drops down IF you can get full time
    Too Seniority driven (job advancement, standby boarding)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of ready reserve, make it easier to transfer to full time. stop making flights based on seniority. Real life doesnt work that way

    Ready Reserve - it's not for everybody

    Pros

    The flight benefits are about it really. Aside from that, there is that collective culture that everyone tries to help.

    Cons

    The 1300 hour limit for ready reserves makes it tricky to swap shifts when you need to, and is still counted against you when they freeze your schedule during irregular operations (i.e. severe weather). At the same time, doubling up seems to be easier to do in some of the hubs like Atlanta, Minneapolis, Detroit, etc despite some bases having high seniority, making it harder to work your way up. If you want to move up in the company, then you'd have to be open to relocating. Your shifts fluctuate about every six months when you bid again based on seniority, so over time it does provide more flexibility in your daily life if you choose to stick it out.
