    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Small, family feel in immediate and associate work groups. Good collaborations.

    Cons

    Contrary to original stated intent after purchase, some of legacy ExpressJet Airlines' "best practices" were tossed-out in bias of new owner Atlantic Southeast Airlines' status quo ways, which were not so often better. Frequent turnover of top leadership (VP and above) ever since ASA acquired XJT.

    Room for improvement

    Mar 1, 2022 - Aircraft Line Maintenance Supervisor in Newark, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overtime was available to supervisor position and there is a lot of work to be done to get extra money. Good business internally with team members across other stations and assisting each other out. High visibility on how the industry works as a whole in many different faucets of an airline.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime. 12 hour work shifts are tough and working the extra hours makes you further deprived of sleep for the next shift. Money should have been better and unfortunately it hasn't. Upper management and CEO refuse to compromise for getting better wages and the wages itself have been stagnant for over 10 years.
