ExpressJet only hires the best, so when you’re invited to join our team you, your future ExpressJet colleagues, and the major airlines know instantly that you are a top aviation professional. More ExpressJet pilots are hired by the majors, and that’s no coincidence. From our partnerships with the Big Three – Delta, United and American – to our industry leading safety, training and professional development programs, to our reputation as the regional airline most preferred by the majors, a career with ExpressJet sets you up for success.

It starts with the interview 
Call us old-fashioned, but we believe in meeting our pilot candidates face-to-face. We take pride in hiring the best aviation professionals, and having our recruiters, who are pilots themselves, meet potential new hires is an important part of that. Some regionals offer a job after only a short phone conversation. You are a professional and you are worth more than a phone interview. We don’t lower our standards and neither should you.

When you’re ready for training, ExpressJet is the best 
Our top-of-the-line training is conducted at ExpressJet by our in-house experts who know our equipment, our values and our high standards. Our new pilots are paid for training and provided a private hotel room near our training facilities in Atlanta or Houston. We think it’s essential that you complete training in-person not only because it’s the best way to learn, but because comradery with your new colleagues is important – and they’re your best study partners! We won’t ask you to go at it alone and self-learn at home because this training is the foundation for your entire career, and we want you to succeed.

You have the opportunity to grow professionally through the many opportunities we offer our pilots, from mentorship programs to free leadership courses and more.

You are part of the ExpressJet culture where you are respected, recognized and rewarded. You are a part of the ExpressJet team, and we are honored to have you.

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time


    I have found XJT to be a helpful company with training, doing what it takes to get you full trained and ready to pass your type ride and fly the line. It surprised me at first but was very glad for it. XJT then did something for me that impressed me more than most companies have in a long time. They treated me like a person. I was based in Detroit. My Mom was diagnosed with cancer and not long after my father passed away unexpectedly. Though I did not have the seniority to bid back to Atlanta yet (where my family is) the company went well out of their way to get me back to my family so I could take care of my Mom. It was a huge step and not one that benefitted the company other than to help an employee. That isn't something you see often anymore in these times of "its about the corporate dollar". Very refreshing and truly like a family.


    Like all regionals the starting pay is low, so far that is all I can say that I wish I could change.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue remembering where you came from and taking care of the employees as you have. It says commends your management and company more than you may know.

    Crew Scheduler Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ExpressJet Airlines (Atlanta, GA).


    I applied for the flight dispatcher position but got called in for the Crew Scheduler position. Weird. There were ten people who also there for the interview. It's a group interview. The Scheduling manager and admin personal gave the interview. They basically gave an overview of the company and asked everyone their names and where they're background. After everyone participated, they was a timed test given to us. The test basically consisted of time calculations, time zones, a few math problems, and general questions. Please know your time zones if you are applying for this job. It will help you out on the test. Once we've completed the test we were free to leave. Later the after, I was told that I passed the test and was schedule for a one on two interview the manager and one of the senior supervisors. The second interview was pretty standard and basic.
