    I worked at Republic Airways full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have wonderful memories of my time w/ RAH. I'd say, at least half of the in flight crew were great people to get to know.

    Cons

    as our company grew from 450 f/a's, to thousands and thousands of f/a's, management stayed the same size. Bases would be "supervised" by 1 person, who also "supervised" 2-3 bases. That is 1 person overseeing, potentially 500+ people. Clearly, effecient staffing, and employee morale was not at the forefront of upper managements minds. I was let out the back door...after 2 aircraft evacuations. And the whole time, I was interogated. BEWARE of this horribly run airline. Oh, and for those who may not share an ultra fundamentalist/catholic view on life...your CEO, bryan bedford, will cram the bible down your throat, when he "finds time" to write his "weekly" memo's to all company staff. He preaches, and quotes scripture, and always sends you a warm...and by warm, i mean fake, "god bless."

    Advice to Management

    i have no advice. i hope they run themselves to the ground. this is a group of hypocrites, who care nothing for the backs of those, who helped build their company. If you want to do this long term, go to a mainline company. you'll save yourself a lot of trouble.

    Pros

    The insurance benefits are excellent and the time off is more than sufficient if you do not have a problem with working 12-hour shifts.

    Cons

    The wages are low in comparison to the responsibility of the position. The AOG staff is often rude and tactless and management is quick to point out and discipline and employee when an error has been made. Management rarely praises when a job is well done.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with being a regional carrier for the major airlines and stop pulling companies out of bankruptcy such as FRONTIER. As a CEO you should have done your homework before you tried to bust up the teamsters contracts with frontier. I hope you learned your lesson.
