    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

    Working in the Indy HQ was amazing! Great people and environment. It's a great combination of laid back and fun. The flight benefits are second to none. It's such a privilege! I can't go on enough about it... Employees have traveled to every continent and can leave town every weekend! It's standby, so it's not perfect.... But when seats are open, the opportunities are endless. The annual holiday party is really fancy and fun! HQ is adding more employee events all the time!

    Cons

    Pilot drama and low pay. If you take advantage of the flight benefits, it makes the pay seem better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay wouldn't hurt... And increase PTO!

    I worked at Republic Airways full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Getting a line fairly quickly depending on the base your working at.

    Cons

    Low pay, unprofessional management, manipulation by management, crew scheduling no helpful to airline crew, and growth is out of the question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give flight attendants the respect they deserve, be supportive and helpful instead of manipulative and disrespectful. Let flight attendants have a chance to make a career out of the job. Raise the low pay for all those long hours required to work.

    Pros

    A good stepping stone into aviation with a major airline. Mechanics salaries for a regional airline are better than most.

    Cons

    Health insurance is complete crap. Takes years to build up any kind of good pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to all of the bases instead of just the certain ones,

    Pros

    Flight benefits are great if you can get the time. Many flight attendants have seconf jobs to help supplement income.

    Cons

    Too many to name. Horrible management, horrible pay..this company is just horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans and not just a number.

    Pros

    Nothing really comes to mind. A place to help pay the bills I guess. Certainly not a career.

    Cons

    Terribly under paid. No communication from the leadership. No room to grow or opportunities for advancement. No incentives. Itsy, bitsy, teenie weenie salary increases.
