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

    Pros

    The people you work with are some of the most professional in the industry. Working in a single flight attendant cabin gives you the experience and responsibility you can take to any other position and company.

    Cons

    The new management and parent company seem not to have the best interest of the workgroup in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps it would be best to focus on the important issues such as employee safety and morale than on the more mundane items, like being a minute late or whether we're wearing a scarf.

    Current Employee - Lead Material Specialist  in  Kansas City, MO
    Current Employee - Lead Material Specialist in Kansas City, MO

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flight benefits (especially the ID90 and ZED fares which are standby tickets on other airlines, which come after six months of employment), which I have used quite a bit. Very good manager in Kansas City stores. I like the four day, ten hour shift schedule when working nights, it's very nice to have. Was promoted from a material specialist to a lead material specialist. Coworkers for the most part are great, and I was able to trade days with some of them.

    Cons

    Pay is not high. If you don't have some type of FAA license, it will be hard to advance into a good paying position in the company. The legacy side of ExpressJet is always having fleet removed because of the pilot shortage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more promotion from within for headquarters positions, especially if a candidate possesses a Bachelors degree and improve the flight benefits for the legacy XJT employees.
