    Pros

    Great benefits, usually a flexible schedule (location-based), 401(k) match, medical, dental, vision, and assorted discounts.

    Listen more closely to employees and provide better support. Show appreciation for employees to motivate them and boost morale.

    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines

    Pros

    Travel! But that's only when you're on a trip because flights are rarely oversold.

    Cons

    Busted planes, bad work rules despite having a fantastic Union, HR doesn't take sexual harassment seriously, bad commutes, minimum rest time, unhappy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your flight attendants more seriously. If someone comes to you about sexual harassment regarding a pilot on an overnight that is serious. Especially if that someone isn't a person who repeatedly goes to management about every little thing and when that person knows what level of harassment is standard from many of the pilots you choose to employ. Disgusting.

    Pros

    Potential time off, Great place to kick off your career. High time mechanics willing to mentor motivated entry level mechanics. Flight benefits with United.

    Cons

    Union! promotes laziness and protects them. Have never seen my union rep in fact the only time he showed up was years ago to ask for more money so they did not have to drive and extra 10 min to a new facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight the union FIRE those that don't work!

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunities if you willing to work hard and have right attitude. Seen the roller coaster changes, having been here for 15 years.....Like the new VPs' thought process, action plans and their vision.

    Cons

    Open door policy???? Really? ... Not jut the crews that run this airline. Non uniformed employees need incentives to expand their qualification, knowledge and skills. Re-enforce equality and fair selection when there are these 'opportunities' and eliminate personal preferences...which is a common practice it seems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be accountable of your responsibilities, and direct with professionalism. You are the ones that have to set an example to the employees.

    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines

    Pros

    I am interested in meeting new, exciting, motivated people. I love to multi-task and make a difference in peoples lives. Expressjet was a great learning tool for me. Traveling the world, and experiencing different cultures.

    Cons

    Being enclosed with unruly passengers on horrible delays. I als capped out on salary at work. There was no more room to grow. Also the company in my 17 years there was bought out 3 times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many employees were treated like a number. Sometimes a pat on the back, or a job well done would have been wonderful.

    Overtime built into schedule. 4 on 3 off schedule.

    Company is going through growing pains. Management needs to keep employees updated on plans and involve them in company decisions.
