Parts Receiving Inspection/Records Auditor (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 18, 2018
Cons: Salary cap is only $2.00 over starting wage for materials specialists. Seniority is different for each department depending on the managers choice. Lack of training for advancement within the company. Company's policy for cell phone usage is too vague. Too relaxed about cell phone usage while on the job.
Pros: Free standby flight benefits. Good health insurance. Perks like free T-shirts and Annual party for the company.
IT TECHNICAL LEAD (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 12, 2018
You are lead to believe that employee engagement is important, when it's not at all. Management is horrible and communication is non existing. If you bring up anything to a manager you're labeled as a complainer.
Aircraft Mechanic (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 8, 2018
I worked in Pittsburgh with a great group of people. Would go back in a heartbeat. No place is perfect but it was a really relaxed and forgiving place to work. Pay is less then the majors but it’s a regional airline. Easy work.
Pilot (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 2, 2018
I enjoyed Republic as a stepping stone to further my career. Not a company I want to work for for the long term. They did offer me the opportunity that I would have never thought would be presented to me.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 28, 2018
It was a great experience! Wouldn't trade it for anything! It turned out not to be for me but I am glad that I did it. Hardest part of job was leaving my home and town and driving to another city and traveling for a period of time.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 20, 2018
Crew Scheduling wasn't always on top of things.Typical work day was hurry up and wait. I learned much about being a flight attendant. Very good training. Some trainers were intimidating. The culture at Republic was mostly friendly The most enjoyable part of my job was my co-workers and the team spirit of the PICs and first officers. Our officers were the best! I also enjoyed the travel and passengers. I made many friends whom I still keep in touch with. Great airport.
Travel, Passengers, flying often, always sunny at the office, co-workers.
Currently a flight attendant. Company treats you as a number- nothing more. The pay is terrible. The company's mistakes and lack of being proactive about problems will eventually trickle down and affect you, so you're just expected to roll with the punches. No room to grow. Expect to be on duty for hours but only get paid for 1/4 of the hours you're on duty for.
The only pro to this job is the travel benefits you can use on your days off.
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 12, 2018
Very fast paced work environment that puts you in the presence of a variety of individuals. Customer service and conflict resolution skills are imperative. You must be able to work efficiently with little to no supervision.
Great Airline. Exciting working for 3 different carriers, Delta, United & American
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 1, 2018
Regional airline that flew Delta, United & American. It was interesting to compare the different cabin services. Republic very well managed. As for the workplace culture you rarely saw the same person twice as a crew member. There was nothing hard about the job. The reason I am no longer there is because my Mother got cancer and I didn't have enough seniority to get to a base near her.
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Washington City, DC – May 29, 2018
Most days were typical, most flights were uneventful, could be fast paced and rushed at times with no time for self or meals or rest. Good group of people, high turnover as most folk move on to bigger companies with better benefits and working conditions.
Looking for able bodies. Good place to start & explore
Information Technology Specialist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 22, 2018
When I started at Republic, it was a great company to work for. Unfortunately, the company went through bankruptcy and the culture shifted from a warm, welcoming, friendly company to the drama ridden mess that it is today.
I worked in the IT Department, which was poorly managed and NEVER promoted from within. I know people that have been in the Help Desk for YEARS and despite being incredibly talented and driven, get passed up for promotion for some random person off the street. If you can get in past the Help Desk level, things are pretty decent. Otherwise, stay away. Lest you find yourself working long hours, constantly on the phones, and lucky if you even get to take a lunch break. The Help Desk is a death sentence, and the new management doesn't care if you're fulfilled or not.
Materials Specialist (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – April 26, 2018
Republic Airlines is a great entry level position job. There you will hand out parts to mechanics, handle hazmat, ship, receive, and other responsibilities along those lines. Management is friendly and understanding; it is hard to get in trouble if you take pride in your work.
lunch is automatically taken out, hours, compensation
