    Pros

    Great people and a great work environment. very laid back at most locations

    Cons

    Atlanta doesn't seem to understand the day-to-day needs of the other stations. Shutting down its biggest base and moving/transferring 300 people.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the local managers what they need and do that, not the other way around.

    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines (More than a year)

    Pros

    Travel benefits
    Easy enough to bid for schedules and swap trips online
    Had a lot of great crews

    Cons

    No matter how many "favors" you do for Crew Scheduling, they will never return the favor.
    Training is not paid.
    Pay isn't enough to live on when you're only guaranteed 80 hours a month

    Advice to Management

    Include customer service training in the training program. more spot checks. It's easy to become complacent when you're not being held accountable.

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best pay in the regional airlines. Great safety culture and good people to work with.

    Cons

    Management is controlled by Skywest Inc and is not truthful or transparent with its employees. The airline has shrunk by 1/3 in the last 3 years and will likely shrink by another 1/3 over the next year.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful with us, don't hide things and then tell us after they have already been announced by our parent company.

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I'm salary, so I don't have to punch a time clock, and I can come in late or leave early if I need to.
    I have the freedom to make decisions
    I have great co-workers and a caring supervisor

    Cons

    If your salary don't plan on getting raises
    There are people in high level positions that shouldn't be there
    They'll abuse the employees that work hard, but not expect anything out of the other employees that don't give a damn

    Advice to Management

    Instead of spending $500,000 for Duggan & Associates to come in to tell us how to do our jobs, spread that money among the employees

    Pros

    Probably the best training and standards dept in the airline business including the majors. A very dedicated leadership group operate this dept.

    Cons

    A lot of uncertainty is dragging down moral due to 37 acft coming off contract. The future of the airline is uncertain. Advancement to captain is taking 8+years.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits are great once you get topped out

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate its employees anymore since SkyWest took over they hate the union and they have made it clear by shutting base after base down. Now they will spend triple on c-checks compared to what they would have had they not closed its biggest base down.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out whos making these horrible decisions for you and cut them loose surely your not into blowing money for no reason.
