    Overtime built into schedule. 4 on 3 off schedule.

    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!

    Pros

    Great travel benefits when you can use them.
    Extremely easy job if you aren't an idiot.

    Cons

    Pay kinda sucks when you first start so you either need a ton of money before you accept or have a second job. I am pretty much broke all the time so I cant use my benefits to travel the places I want.

    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.

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent overnights, good quality hotels, maximum of five possibly six legs in a day...normally between three and four. Exotic destinations have great hotels. Working byyourself.

    Cons

    Sometimes have short overnights and reserve life, is reserve life...it is what you make it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For me they have worked very well with whatever information I have brought to the table, and have been very supportive in general...if you treat management like they're not human beings...you will be treated negatively, but if you are a decent person, do your job and you're honest with management, they will back you up as best as they can.
