    Great crews and decent trips for a regional airline.

    Unreliable aircraft/maintenance issues. Management was so consumed with a merger and in-fighting within unions.

    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very safety focused. I’d trust maintenance and safety here over any other regional airline.

    Cons

    Management has no interest in bargaining with their labor groups.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to attract more pilots it’s time to come to the negotiating table.

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Flight Attendant 

    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines full-time

    Pros

    I could travel for free.

    Cons

    I was paid only $19,000 per year. They make you think you are getting paid a lot because of the hourly wage. (It’s only per flight hour)

    "Flight Attendant"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ExpressJet Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flight Benefits. That is it.

    Cons

    Terrible Management, constantly away from home. Seniority list way to long.

    Advice to Management

    Was hired back in 2015. My time with ExpressJet was a miserable one. Constantly away from home, management doesn’t care about employees, they just bodies to be working the aircraft. I say turn around and run. Don’t waste your time applying for the flight attendant position. Any airline is better than this one. Thankfully I was furloughed with 80 other flight attendants so it was a blessing. Would never come back.
