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.
