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

    Pros

    Great training with a high school feel and people. Great travel perks on the big 3.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Go with mainline or avoid LGA.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Fire the inflight supervisor at LGA in the MAT. She does not know what she is doing and the union reps even say that yet offered me no help when I got selected to be her next victim.

    Flight benefits for 3 major airlines is a great perk. They are trying to improve culture.

    In the middle of restructuring so there is some stress there.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes in-flight feels that management takes a 'guilty until proven innocent' approach.
