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

    Pros

    There is such a sense of family amongst the crew which makes the job fun and satisfying. Since its regional we're never too far from home or too long away from our families. The union is very active and proactive and a real benefit to the flight attendants.

    Cons

    We do the same job as the large mainline companies but, are paid considerably less for the same work.

    Pros

    Great way to get your foot in the door and figure out if you want to pursue a career in this industry. Good pay for a regional

    Cons

    Have to clean your own planes. Three different code shares to fly for which sometimes do different things so it can be confusing.

    Pros

    Good Travel Benefits and good plane to fly.

    Cons

    They tell you and promise things that cant be done. During interview I was promised Miami base in 6 months, I won't get it at least for another 7 months( been here 6 months), and promised to hold a line a month into it, so far 6 months later there is somedays they don't have more than 2 people on reserve. ( min preferred 10 per base).

    I worked at Republic Airways full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free flights on standby, decent insurance, 401(K) match (up to 5%), overtime and shift swapping available. Management is open to suggestions, if you happen to offer any.

    Cons

    The pay is not great for the amount of knowledge you’re required to have for the position; you go through a week of initial training, followed by 4-6 weeks of desk training with a senior crew scheduler. Your training never officially ends, as there are an infinite number of one-off situations that can occur that you won’t be trained for. Management is typical for this level of business. There is too much red tape to cut through to administer any real change. They do their best with what they have. Your schedule will be weekends when starting due to senior schedulers wanting them off, so be prepared for that. Seniority is determined by amount of time working there, nothing else. It would make more sense to combine this with performance, as there are some schedulers who have the benefit of having weekends off and not pulling their weight. Management cannot dismiss these employees because of staffing concerns. Turnover is very high. Outside of that, it’s your typical call center. You don’t have a lunch break, but you can step away to get food if needed. Metrics aren’t 100% clear — knowing what you will be evaluated on needs more clarity. Employees cannot improve if they don’t have the opportunity to know what areas to improve on. Computer systems are antiquated and mostly unable to integrate with newer programs that would consolidate efforts and save time. I heard rumors of crew members (pilots, flight attendants) treating schedulers horribly, but I rarely encountered nasty people. Many schedulers here need a morale boost, or they will scare away any talent they attract. It will be difficult to get out of crew scheduling when hired (due to turnover).

    Advice to Management

    Update your resources, reconsider the structure of your metrics, and offer more transparency through the hiring process.
