ExpressJet offers CJOs $1,000 referral bonus

 

CJOBonus

We are excited to announce that we are now offering our $1,000 post-tax pilot referral bonus to AP3 and PSP students! All students enrolled in our Airline Pilot Pathway Program (AP3) or our new Preferred School Program (PSP) who have completed testing and earned a conditional job offer (CJO) are eligible.

Here’s how it works:

  • You (a CJO) recommend ExpressJet to a pilot
  • That pilot lists you as their referrer in their interview and first day at ExpressJet
  • Once the referred pilot successfully completes training, $1,000 is put into a “bank” under your name
  • When you (the CJO) complete training at ExpressJet, you will receive all banked referral bonuses

There is no limit to the number of referrals a student can make, and all referral bonuses are worth $1,000 each with no additional tax taken out. That means that if you recommend 10 pilots who all successfully complete ExpressJet’s training, you’ll receive a check for $10,000 once you’re here! That’s it. There’s no catch!

What is a CJO?
A CJO is an AP3 or PSP student who has completed testing and has been given a conditional job offer (CJO) for a first officer position at ExpressJet. A CJO is an opportunity, not a commitment, to work for ExpressJet upon reaching ATP required hours (minus those you’ll earn in training!).

How can I get a CJO?
Students must be enrolled in AP3 or PSP at a partner school and have their instrument rating to complete AP3/PSP testing (our early interview). Upon successful completion of the testing, you’ll be offered a guaranteed position as a first officer at ExpressJet pending completion of all other requirements (including earning your hours, serving as a CFI and maintaining a clean record). To see if your school has an AP3/PSP partnership, visit expressjet.com/ap3 and expressjet.com/psp. Contact Captain Joey Cook (joey.cook@expressjet.com) with questions.

What do I have to do to recommend a pilot?
If you have a friend, family member, instructor or other pilot you’re close with and you recommend ExpressJet to them, we want to thank you with a $1,000 bonus. Once you’ve told that pilot about ExpressJet and they apply and interview, ask them to share your name at the interview as the referrer. The applicant will also have to share your name as the referrer during new hire orientation – their first day at ExpressJet.

When do I get the bonus?
All referral bonuses you earn will be put into a bank with your name for when you start at ExpressJet. Once you successfully complete training, you’ll be issued a check for every referral bonus you’ve earned. There is no limit on the number of referral bonuses you can earn! Refer 10 pilots, get $10,000.

Can I refer myself?
While we appreciate your ingenuity in trying to earn extra cash, no, you cannot refer yourself.

Can the person I refer then refer me?
Yep! That is one we do allow. If you refer John Doe while you’re still in school, you’ll earn a $1,000 bonus when you start for that referral. When you start at ExpressJet, John Doe can refer you and earn the bonus for himself!

What if I refer someone but don’t come to fly for ExpressJet?
If you choose not to fly for ExpressJet or you do not successfully complete training, you will forfeit any accumulated referral bonuses.

Pilot Recruiting set a New Year’s resolution to educate, engage, and empower aviators across the country. Several months later we are still committed to fulfilling our resolution. On Friday, July 22, ExpressJet launched a new program designed to benefit students learning to fly professionally – our Preferred School Program (PSP). With the launch of this program, we wanted to take a minute to share answers to a few common questions:

What is PSP?
ExpressJet’s Preferred School Program (PSP) is designed to give flight school students a clear path to ExpressJet upon earning their flight time and certifications. PSP is similar to AP3, but focused on part 61 and 141 flight schools. Students enrolled in the PSP are offered a competitive advantage with a guaranteed interview at ExpressJet early in their training which leads to a conditional job offer.

Which flight schools are included in this program?
We launched the program last week with our first partner school, Nashville Flight Training, and continue to add new, qualified partners. PSP is focused on part 61 and part 141 flight schools that meet our rigorous requirements, which include a comprehensive curriculum and at least 50 hours of flying per month for CFIs. Keep an eye on expressjet.com/psp for added schools; below are the first five in the program:

What are the benefits?
In addition to an early interview that leads to a conditional job offer (CJO) and guaranteed job after program completion, students have personal access to our recruiters who can help answer questions, offer advice and be a resource for the student.

If I join PSP, do I have to go to ExpressJet?
No – students are not required to sign a commitment to ExpressJet to join the program. We offer desirable bases, industry-leading training and pay, and great work rules, but sometimes ExpressJet isn’t the right fit. We understand that, and we’re here to help you make the best decision for YOU, even if it’s not us.

What does the PSP path look like?
Each school’s agreement is slightly different, but in general here’s the path you can expect:

  1. Join PSP
  2. Complete PSP testing (a version of our new hire pilot interview) after earning your instrument rating; if successful receive a conditional job offer (CJO)
  3. Gain experience as a CFI to meet your ATP/R-ATP required hours (remember, you’ll gain 40+ hours in training, so it can actually be a bit less) and maintain a clean record
  4. Complete an application at expressjet.com/apply when you’re within six months of reaching your ATP/R-ATP minimums
  5. Select a date to start your ATP CTP class, paid for by ExpressJet, then start new hire training at ExpressJet (all training is paid)
  6. Fly passengers as an ExpressJet first officer!

What is a CJO?
A CJO, or conditional job offer, means you’ve passed the PSP version of our new hire interview (congrats!). As long as you complete all the other requirements of the program, like keeping your nose clean, earning your hours and gaining experience as a CFI, you’re guaranteed a job at ExpressJet when you’re ready to start. And you don’t even have to complete another interview.

What’s the catch?
There is no catch! Our motto in recruiting is “educate, engage, empower” and PSP helps us fulfill those goals. It costs nothing to sign up, you’re not required to come to ExpressJet, and you get a leg up on your career.
