    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flight Benefits, positive work environment, a lot of hiring from with in the company, a lot of overtime available, experience will make it easier to get a job at a mainline airline

    Cons

    Dealing with arrogant pilots can make you hate your job and it becomes stressful, when weather is bad operations are hectic, starting pay is low for industry standards, strict attendance, high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Hold pilots accountable for their behavior. This creates a stressful environment which is not worth the pay.

    Made some best friends here for the rest of my life. Former Atlantic Southeast Airlines was a superb place to work, make friends & travel.
