Great People (Flight Attendant) wise some of the best personalities and hardest workers in the airline industry. Introduces you to the Airline Industry.
No real potential for growth, Inflight Management is horrible all the Inflight chiefs complain and bicker about their jobs. No real company culture, Scheduling will manipulate you and screw you over if you don't know your contract as a reserve, Theres no real transition period after training they just put you on a plane an expect you to fly or fall to your death per se. Don't value their Flight Attendant as whole, Pilots are offered better schedules and more rest while they run there FAs to the ground on minimum rest and minimum pay for mainline work. Expect you to do a six day stretch with minimum 2 days off on reserve. as a FA you can do up to 6 to 7 legs a day. Flight benefits are not the best you have priority one step above a buddy pass. I will always be grateful for my start but as a whole not the best company to work for .4ExpressJet Airlines Response8y

if you can’t find anything else they’ll hire you. Flight benefits are nice and health insurance is good.
Pay is lowest in the industry with no raise in sight. Management is awful and unwilling to help. They keep around mechanics that are not capable of doing the work and management knows they’re not capable but it’s man hours on paper work so they don’t care. Older union guys hate it there and are constantly complaining.1

I have been employed at ExpressJet many years and have a great flying schedule. I can get pretty much the schedule I want at this time. I have made many good friends over the years.
We have a union that is awful. The company drags out negotiations to the point that it is almost hopeless to think there would be any improvement. It would be nice if the company would prorate insurance benefits for part time flight attendants.1ExpressJet Airlines Response8y
Thank you for the feedback - we appreciate insight from our front line team members.

I uses my flight benefits as much as possible so i was happy for the some freedom.
Reserve for many many years. Like more than 8. Although higher than most, money sucked bc u barely work.

The co-workers can be great and the flight benefits are wonderful! This is a great job to start off in and gain experience. If you reach age and length of service, you get to have retiree standby flight benefits. 401(k) match is always nice! Starting pay used to be decent when I started with the company.
In the Part & Logistics Department, the starting pay is extremely low. The morale has declined drastically to the point where various different employees at maintenance bases are actively seeking to leave. Senior Management, particularly in the Spares (Parts & Logistics) Department does not value employees beneath them, especially if they are not in Atlanta. Advice from clerks, leads, and supervisors are ignored and the catchphrase is "We'll look into it." Most of the day, management in the Maintenance Division is spent on conference calls that lead nowhere. The employees that keep the operation running are not given the resources that they need to succeed. Staffing has been reduced to the point of immediate failure - so much so that I fear that this department may not last for long. I read about management changes on Glassdoor, but being an employee for about a decade, I have only seen it become worse and worse over time.2

Most of the pilots and flight attendants on the ERJ side are friendly and like family. I didn't work CRJ side.
Flight benefits are not the best but that's the way United treats all of their regionals. Management is not good either.1
