No opinion of CEO

Pros

Grateful to be employed as a pilot given the current state of the aviation industry. The majority of the pilots I work with are good people.

Cons

Perception of non-standard/preferential treatment for select employees. Corporate culture does not allow for honest and open communications. Arrogant and finger pointing leadership style results in CYA mind set and envirnoment of fear.

Advice to Management

Trust your people, communicate with a feeling of sincerity, and be consistent with the treatment of all employees.

This post was written at a very dark time in XOJET's history. We have come a long way since 2011. Dramatic improvements in most areas. Again, underscores importance of vision and values.

    Pros

    XOJET is a great place to work if you need to develop your skill as a pilot, in customer service or build flight time. Flight operations are run professionally and a high level of proficiency is expected from it's pilot group. Pilots work very hard in every aspect of this job from cleaning and restocking aircraft to customer service. XOJET is unique in the charter industry in that you may reside anywhere and you are provided with a schedule.

    Cons

    Due to frozen pay and increasing workload I would not recommend this company for a career destination. Through each change to our compensation and overtime policy it is becoming increasingly apparent that it will not improve and although professionalism remains high within the pilot group I have seen a sharp decline in moral, particularly in pilots who have been here longer.

    Advice to Management

    Due to fear for loss of our jobs as pilots in a very weak pilot job market pilots are not speaking up about how they really feel about our schedule and compensation. If the pilot job market shifts sharply upward as is expected over the next few years the attrition rate will likely be very high.

    We continue to work hard to make XOJET an attractive place to work for all employees. We have come a long way since 2011. We have a pay scale now. We have improved overtime pay. We have improved... More

    I worked at XOJET full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People there love aviation even if they're not the pilots. There's passion for the the work and good camaraderie.

    Cons

    Jets are expensive to maintain and fly and it's hard to grow to the point where additional support infrastructure is required.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to find that right business partner or in-house innovation to take things to the next level. You've got a great core of people. I appreciated my time there.
