    Pros

    Flight benefits, training is paid, great place to start to get your foot in the door, hiring constantly so you gain seniority pretty quickly & aren't on reserve for a long period of time unlike other airlines.

    Cons

    Management, team morale, starting pay is very low, very poor communication between management and employees.

    Pros

    The flight benefits are great if you can plan ahead. Feel that upper management is creative in looking for ways to keep Republic competitve and to grow the company.

    Cons

    Benefits are mediocre. Vacation time, is terrible. You max out at 3 weeks which is well below what most organizations offer.

    Pros

    GREAT travel benefits and there are some really nice people to work with at headquarters.

    Cons

    The company underpays drastically. Also Clocking in/out policies and other policies are not effective. Also, not very much personal time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More flextime and/or working from home. Increase Pay and time off.

    Good Coworkers, Lower Management cares about their individual employees, opportunities to learn and gain industry experience, flight benefits, willingness of others to help and teach, company does have events from time to time

    Culture is lacking although improvements are in work currently, pay is low, 401k matching isn't that great, not enough vacation time, poor communication from upper management

    Pros

    Great pilot group and flight attendant group.

    Cons

    Too many to list. A few examples are: poor schedules, bad middle management, greedy upper management, and a culture that has become toxic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bargain with the pilot group in good faith. We are your greatest asset and biggest liability.

    Pros

    Flight Benefits when you are able to actually get on the plane... Always Stand-by ....

    Cons

    When I worked there I was the only Female Mechanic.... Lots of Harassment going on, favoritism by management & supervisors etc.... The CEO does not care about employees, especially if you are female considering he never really looked in to my complaints and allowed it to happen.... Went to school to do what I loved and ended up being a nightmare. The people that have moved up to supervision roles were POOR POOR choices. They should never be in that role when they have no clue how to treat people with respect .... The whole company as a whole I thought was an absolute JOKE.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the CEO - you should care a little more about what's going on down in that hanger (Indianapolis)... Supervisors are horrible and disrespect people all the time accept their "FRIENDS" / Favorites...... It's NOT right.. I should have sued you when I had the chance for the harassment.
