    Pros

    Flight Benefits
    Quick Scheduled Flying
    Small Company
    Get your preferred base quickly
    Great stepping stone
    Gain seniority fast

    Cons

    Pay, is the only thing that forces you to keep your options open.
    It checks every single box, except the pay. Which is unfortunate, because I would stay here and make this a company to invest my time into otherwise.

    I worked at Mesa Air full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The flights benefits and experience! Short reserve period. The flexibility of your schedule once off reserve. Some months I would be off 18 days which is unmatched in other careers. Great hubs to choose from.

    Cons

    Management. The lack of consistency and communication throughout training and on a day-to-day basis. Miscommunications. rough as a single person but gave me great perspective to my future goals - I realized this lifestyle isn’t healthy for me. no long term incentives to keep you and the pay isn’t worth it if you are financially independent and do not have parents or a spouse to depend on.

    Advice to Management

    Improve training. Pay your employees a decent salary. Be more collaborative and cohesive.

    Pros

    Regional airlines are a good start in the aviation industry before moving onto mainlines Airlines. Different routes all around the U.S including Canada and Mexico.

    Cons

    The pay starting off is not that great especially when you’re on reserve for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    WORK WITH THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS. Stop worry about flight leaving out on time and worry about the flight attendants mental and physical health. We work a lot only because we don’t get paid well so we have to work all the time even if it means having 5 days off A MONTH.
