Great job, great people. I loved the job.
Pay was low, but they have approved raises now
Gone 20 days per month. I did a lot of flying
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ExpressJet Airlines (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.
Short interview, HR screening, drug screening. The meeting with the OCC manager was quick and informal. I was asked some standard questions, given a short dispatch exam (20 questions, not too hard if you've got your DX certificate) and toured the OCC. The HR interview took the longest, outlining different jobs I have had, why I left them, and whatnot. Then HR took care of fingerprinting, background check questions (making sure I didn't make any mistakes on my initial application) and sent me for the drug screening. The whole process was done efficiently in about 1.5 hours. The drug testing took about 1.5 hours also, but I won't hold that against XJET as it was done by an outside company off company premises.
ExpressJet pilots are the most desired by the major and mid-sized mainline carriers. Check out this graph below of how many ExpressJet pilots advanced their career to each airline in the past 12 months.
Work rules define your quality of life as a pilot, but if you're unfamiliar with the terms you might not realize what kind of an impact these have for you. We created a work rule vocabulary breakdown so you are informed. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIxHv
