    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The overall job in theory is quite enjoyable. Relatively easy work. After years of dedication can have excellent control over trips and schedule which gives you some control over income. Most coworkers are excellent, it can feel like joining a family. Flight privileges on the major airline you support, however these privileges have been weakening over the recent years for regional carriers with their dedicated employees getting lower priorities, higher costs to join, and less perks.

    Cons

    The regional airlines service in this economy doesn't seem very sustainable due to lack of ability to attract pilots, and major airlines frequently switching out contractors for cheaper labor costs. There is no more loyalty in the industry, yet your CBA in this industry will be based on an old-school loyalty model no longer applicable in today's economy. Company has been losing contracts and subsequently downsizing, presently having voluntary layoffs with involuntary layoffs a possibility in the future. Pay in beginning is so low, depending on where you are based you have the possibility of even with a full time position (75 flight hour guarantee) you can make less than any other full-time minimum wage job if the state has a high minimum wage such as NY.

    Advice to Management

    It is time to revolutionize the model of sustainability of regional airlines. Flight Attendant Unions need to consider joining together and changing model for CBAs industry wide to protect worker's livelihoods in such a volatile industry.
