Republic Airline offers a comprehensive benefit package for Associates that includes healthcare, retirement, discount programs and even travel perks!
One of the best reasons to consider a career in the airlines are the travel benefits. At Republic, our Associates have the ability to fly free (or at a reduced rate) on each of our partners--American, Delta and United. We also have travel alliances with nearly 50 other airlines. The Associate can include eligible family members on their travel benefits as well. All travel related privileges are subject to applicable requirements and other restrictions.
Associates are able to enroll in one of our excellent Company-sponsored health plans within 30 days from hire. The plans are offered through Anthem and provide access to their extensive network of leading health care providers. We offer a choice between a traditional PPO or a consumer driven health plan (CDHP) that includes a Company contribution of $800 for Associate Only coverage or $1,600 for Associate +1/Family coverage.
Dental coverage through Metlife is available for all eligible Associates 30 days from hire. Associates can choose between the Standard Dental Plan (provides comprehensive dental coverage and is paid in full by Republic Airline for Associate Only coverage) or pay the difference in cost to enroll in the Dental Plus plan (provides a higher annual coverage maximum and orthodontic care).
The vision plan offered by Republic Airline provides Associates and their families with Company-paid vision care 30 days from hire. Associates can choose between two options, both are through Anthem BCBS and both are available at no cost to the Associate and to all eligible dependents.
We offer a competitive 401(k) retirement program through Charles Schwab. Associates may contribute up to 90% of their income on a pre-tax basis up to the annual IRS maximum. Upon your enrollment, the Company will begin matching 100% for the first 2.5% that you contribute to the plan. Contributions made by Republic Airline are vested immediately, and the match grows with your tenure at the organization.
We also offer voluntary short and long-term disability, an employee discount program, an employee assistance program, commuter benefits for eligible employees, life insurance and more.
In summer 2017, Republic Airline announced a new department within the Company: Corporate and Community Responsibility.
Republic has historically collaborated with dozens of organizations on community outreach and philanthropy initiatives, but with this new department, we can increse the work we do with charitable partners and create new opportunities for our employees to get involved in their local communities.
One of our most notable annual fundraisers is the Pulling for Wishes Plane Pull, which we have sponsored for the past six years. This event has grown each year, earning more than $500,000 in 2017, and provides much needed support to the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, and Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis.
Republic has also provided help and support during natural disasters like Hurricanes Katrina, Harvey and Irma with evacuation flights as well as delivering supplies and aid.
Republic operates a single fleet of the Embraer 170/175s. We are the world's largest operator of this aircraft with 188 on our fleet. Our fleet grew by 16% in 2017, adding aircraft for each of our codeshare partners: American, Delta and United.
The Embraer 170/175 is a dual-class, 76-passenger plane that is leading in fuel efficiency.
Republic Airline has 10 crew domiciles and 10 maintenance domiciles.
Our crew bases include: CMH (Columbus, OH), DCA (Washington, DC), EWR (Newark, NJ), IND (Indianapolis, IN), LGA (New York, NY), MCI (Kansas City, MO), MIA (Miami, FL), ORD (Chicago, IL), PHL (Philadelphia, PA) and PIT (Pittsburgh, PA).
Our maintenance bases include: CLT (Charlotte, NC), CMH (Columbus, OH), DCA (Washington, DC), EWR (Newark, NJ), IND (Indianapolis, IN), LGA (New York, NY), ORD (Chicago, IL), PHL (Philadelphia, PA), PIT (Pittsburgh, PA) and SDF (Louisville, KY).
I have been working at Republic Airways full-time (More than a year)
There is such a sense of family amongst the crew which makes the job fun and satisfying. Since its regional we're never too far from home or too long away from our families. The union is very active and proactive and a real benefit to the flight attendants.
We do the same job as the large mainline companies but, are paid considerably less for the same work.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Republic Airways.
Applied about 2 weeks ago and a week later got an invite to do a video interview. The process was really easy, I did the interview through Sparkhire on my phone. There was 7 questions and it gave you an opportunity to review the question and practice your answers before submitting the final one. Just submitted so waiting for a f2f hopefully!
