Work smart not hard. If you don't want to answer then don't.
Real simple answer man......because this is APC, and we have a reputation of being dicks to one another to uphold here. This ain't the JC forums.........

Unfortunately, you get the elementary school banter in this forum about how one regional is better than the other. They're not. Just work at wherever is most convenient (ideally, no commute).

Please keep in mind that GoHomeLeg interviewed with Compass back in June, which means that he may be a newb to the business and really cannot offer any experienced or unbiased information with regard to other regionals, and the simple fact that he can breathe allowed him to be hired at the first place that called him. There is nothing worse than a know-it-all who knows nothing, but doesn't know that... But, if that is not the case, the obvious bias against RAH is simply ridiculous.
Not a "newb". Working for my 3rd regional, watched 2 of my fleet types go away (see displaced) and have bankruptcy under my belt. I know it's not the largest resume but I've been around.

The day to day at RJET was tolerable but the company has no value (see future) for its junior pilots.That's why I left after 3 years and being within a hundred numbers from upgrade (which has since slipped further away for people in my new hire class). All thanks to the way management finds ways to turn 1 dollar into 50 cents. The only thing they had going was they were 1 of 2 175 operators in the country. Now that is not the case and they are getting crushed under their own weight and mismanagement.

Please continue to be condescending.

Furthermore this is particularly insulting coming from somebody that probably was hired at Republic between 2005 and 2007, upgraded in under a year, and enjoyed the better of an eight-year negotiation sitting in the left seat while your first officer struggled with abysmal pay and work rules. Think your experience is the exception and not the rule with Republic?

Sorry to do something totally crazy, like answer the original question but assuming you are currently not and have never been a regional pilot, www.jetcareers.com has some basic but useful info for newbies.

This gives a little idea about how regional schedules can be like

A Day in the Life (Regional)

But Doug leaves out some of the real fun stuff, like commuting to reserve (don't do it), bone crushing fatigue, base closings, MX delays, being extended and junior manned on the last day of a trip, and some of the other happy makings that others have mentioned.

I can read most of this METAR, but the last remark stumps me. What does "getting junior manned" mean?

Also, WHO (ie. what regionals) do this? Who is the LEAST worst about doing this?

Thanks and sorry for being such a NOOB!
