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

    Pros

    Great leadership, great benefits. Team work is definitely in place. They travel to many destinations. Flight benefits are amazing. I look forward to to work everyday. This is a great place to be a Flight Attendant

    Cons

    Every work place has its cons. Being on reserve is part of the business, delays happen. Cranky Customers is part of any business so I just make the best of it and enjoy what I do in spite of another persons bad mood.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Flight benefits with Delta, United, and American are almost free for domestic travel. The supervisors are very relaxed and laid back.

    Cons

    Their bases are in expensive areas and the company doesn't pay very well. Your experience is what you make of it.

    Pros

    Flights anywhere and just pay taxes

    Cons

    only increase in pay is $0.25 a year.
    the work does not compare to the low wadges.
    the management can be rude at times.
    You get stuck in Crew scheduling because there is such a high turnover rate. It is really hard to transfer because people move to other airlines.

    Advice to Management

    Not going to happen.

    Love the travel and meeting new people all the time, since you work with different people each time. The flight benefits are great.

    Cons

    The pay...be aware you only paid your hourly rate from the time the door shuts on the plane until the door is opened.

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, and planes are comfortable and spacious for a regional aircraft. Has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    flight hour pay is very low, they start off at 17.45 per hour, that sounds good to most, but what they don't tell you is that you will be paid per FLIGHT hour, so you are only paid while the aircraft is moving. We are guaranteed 75 hours a month on reserve . Whether you fly or not. We barely fly 50 hours a month. ( the reason for the guarantee. ) so before taxes and benefits are taken out you will make 1308.00 a month . 16-19,000.00 a year give or take if you pick up on your off days and the per diem helps as well. It's a good job, but you have to be flexible with the company, and know it's going to be financially rough for a couple years, but will get better after year two or three.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raise for the employees please? Some of our flight attendants are on food stamps. Hire people who care and want to be here.

    I worked at Republic Airways full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good maintenance and great flying comfortable jets.

    Fellow crew members made a grueling schedule possible.

    Cons

    Scheduling was often curt and unprofessional when contacting crew members. Spent 8 years without a union contract. Mgmt used every delay possible until they could no longer recruit enough pilots to staff the airline. The airline is currently in bankruptcy resulting from these staffing issues.

    Advice to Management

    Met the CEO once as he was flying to testify to congress about the 'appropriateness' of starting pilot's salaries at $22k a year, realize that as frontline representatives of the brand and cost control, the employees should be treated as professionals.
