    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the highest paid regional airlines starting at 19 an hour with an 80 hours a month guarantee and 1.85 an hour per diem. Also the benefits! Travel for free domestically on various carriers, great medical, dental, vision, 401K, ltd, flex vacation, and life insurance benefits. Discount airfare for a confirmed seat (instead of stand by status), and super cheap airfare when flying internationally.

    Cons

    Long hours, sometimes short layovers, start as a 24 hour reserve with a 2 hour call out window. No reciprical jump seat agreement with United. Federally regulated rest rules differ from pilots. Not really a live able wage if you are supporting yourself financially. Seemingly no accountability of flight attendants for airplane conditions after working a flight (messy planes, disorganized).

    Advice to Management

    Support! The staff needs support through operational changes such as base closures and line reductions leading to returning to reserve status. Also from bad industry press/surly passengers.
