    Pros

    The crews are fun loving and by and large great to work with. The aircraft are mostly new and are a joy to fly

    Cons

    No trust in management. Under staffing is chronic and leeds to poor quality of life for flight crews. The company will keep loosing pilots util the 12 year old contract is upgraded.

    Advice to Management

    Sign a contract with your key frontline employees. Pay and quality of life improvements are the key to employee retention.

    I have been working at Republic Airways full-time

    Pros

    Travel Benefits are pretty good and heath benefits too. E-Jets are a nice regional plane to work on. 4 person crew so less personalities to deal with.

    Cons

    Worse pay in the industry. Shuttle side management is not the greatest. They are always out to fire you. 11 months out of the year flight attendants suck (according to management ) and 1 month a year (this is new) they celebrate us.
     The Union is a snake in the grass. They rigged the TA voting to get the horrible flight attendant contract passed. Pilots been with out a contract since 2007.

    Advice to Management

    Get a good pilot contract and fast. Treat your employees with dignity and respect.
