Could anyone give me details about Flexjet? I’ve obviously read a lot of the details on here but am hoping for a fair assessment before I move forward with applying. Feel free to PM!

Starting pay $52,000 a bit more if you want flex schedule where you work almost every weekend and every holiday.
Year 10 SIC is $69,000

Right seat in Phenom for 13 - 15 years before you are able to upgrade. ( we currently have 17 year SIC’s)
Three rounds of furloughs in the last 10 years.
As you are aware, poor labor / management relations.
If you are leaving a regional it is a step down when 5 or 6 years ago it would have been a step up.

Compare that to what you have currently have and decide if you want to be at the bottom of a list with all of that to look forward to.

The last 5 years has seen the great culture we had at Bombardier Flexjet disappear. I would not recommend this company to any of my friends and have saved the last 5 from even applying. That was my good deed done and will continue to do more. In the past I have recommended several pilots who were hired here but no more of that.
