    Pros

    It's a good company to get your foot in the door in the aviation industry. Flight benefits are some of the best in the business, with the option to travel with several different carriers. The health benefits are competitive with others in the industry.

    Cons

    The pay is sub par, compared to others in the industry. That is only serious complaint I have for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on your employees and they will reward you.

    I worked at Republic Airways

    Pros

    Leadership in my area made sure to recognize and reward good work done by employees. Very professional atmosphere; people were polite and business-like.

    Cons

    Work was structured well but there were some departments that were isolated, and some if he software used was difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exec level needs to build more communication/connections across departments

    I have been working at Republic Airways full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The potential to see the eastern portion of the Continental US , one airport at a time (for 9 hour layovers)

    Cons

    Terrible pay (maybe a grand a month after deductions), flight benefits are a joke especially if you're trying to fly with a partner, work 14 hour days/ get paid for 5 hours, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay/ update on union contract. I can not fathom how it is legal to pay an employee for half the hours they actually pay.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Lot of team support and tools available in support of the work requirements. Factory and company sponsored training available for continued development.

    Cons

    Pay scales, specially in high cost of living markets, are well off (below) median.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review peer carriers pay scales and adjust accordingly to geographical cost-of-living.

    I have been working at Republic Airways

    Pros

    I have been on Reserve in Denver for more than 2 years. The pro is if you have an additional and flexible job you are home most of the time. November I was only gone 8 nights, December will be 6 nights.

    Cons

    I rarely make my guarantee, a pro is I am paid even tho I don't work but the con is you have no idea if you will be used on your "work" days, you don't make per diem, and have no control over scheduling your life.
