    An ok job if your fine with being over worked and under paid. Smaller airline so the flying benefits aren't that great.

    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines

    Pros

    . Flying benefits
    . Nice hotels during layovers
    . opportunities to move in other areas of the company

    Cons

    once training over your are thrown into the world of fighting with no chance to go home recoup or really even make reservations for where your going to stay on base. Training was rushed; it was suppose to be 4wks but lasted 3. Union creates a disconnect with the company. Crew Scheduling will try to post illegal trips on your schedule if you allow them. depending on the base holding a line can take up to 5 years.

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working alone in the cabin (ERJ)
    Flexible schedule once a line holder
    Union

    Cons

    Reserve life is constant work, which allows a limited personal life. The companies scheduling is not educated and tries to take advantage and reschedule people at times where no management is available such as late at night or on weekends. Hopefully the new CEO will improve these issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow longer rest periods to flight attendants. Allow dropping of trips.
