    I have been working at Republic Airways (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, every day is different, always working with new people

    I worked at Republic Airways full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to fly a ERJ 170/175.

    Cons

    Pilot shortage. Will not give you the hours you bid. You end up working more hours then you want. Republic reassigns all the time and you work longer days than you anticipated. Average day is 10-12 with long sits in airport.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the pilots at your company are unhappy, over worked and burned out. Crew Scheduling needs to stop reassigning so much. Very poor Work/Life balance.

    Decent pay. Good work schedule at the time. 3 or 4, 12 hr shifts.

    Cons

    Management did not communicate with employees. Went bankrupt and suddenly downsized 300 employees at this site.

    I have been working at Republic Airways full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.
