Dudette, some people don't frequent this forum daily like others, give some slack.  Why does this post have thumbs down, and why with every post do pilots feel like they have to be facetious asses???

To answer the question, I work for Metro.  Pay could be better, frankly that's why there's been more turnover lately. If they want to keep pilots, they will need to offer a company wide pay raise.  Another reason for more turnover is it's new management in operations.    I believe the pilots feel they are now working for a company that won't think twice before firing one of them.  They now jump to the initial trigger of firing a pilot vs understanding and backing a pilot.  

When I worked for Metro 4 years ago it didn't have this feeling.  Things are slowly changing.  Not so much a small family company feeling.  The only time you will deal with or speak with the CP is if you are under a target for one reason or another, which is easier now that it was in the past.  Not much room for error or honest mistakes.  Not much empathy or help after a mistake.  I've seen too many pilots get fired for petty reasons.  

Aside from the overall atmosphere and feeling at Metro, the other aspects are good.  401k, and health insurance benefits are good.  Aircraft are top notch and well maintained, because in reality Metro is more of a mx company than anything else.  As a result, mechanics are often paid more than the pilots, even though they are required to work less than 2 hrs a day vs a pilot's 12 hrs a day.  Sadly if you join Metro now, you will be watching your back and worrying about the security of your job on a daily basis.
