Absolutely loved it!!!!
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 21, 2014
Pros: the work environment
Cons: cancelling flights due to weather or mechanical issues
A typical day would include boarding and disembarking about 20 flights, Interacting with passengers and the public constantly. Selling tickets and checking passengers ID's and passports. I learned the importance of safety in transportation and FAA rules. My coworkers were a joy to work with and very helpful. Hardest part of my job was telling passengers – more... their flight was overbooked and they wouldn't be able to fly. The most enjoyable part was of my job was working with the public and facing a new challenge everyday and learning new things. – less

What once was a rewarding Job.
Passenger Service Agent (Current Employee), Midland, TXJuly 18, 2014
What once was a rewarding job, has now become a not so rewarding job. With new management comes new chaos. This company does nothing to help take care of employee. The only way any one person is able to survive is because they have to follow the rules of the union.

Customer Service Agent (Current Employee), Appleton, WIip disruptionJune 8, 2014
Pros: interesting benefit, discount of flight fares
Cons: short brea time and to may days of irregular operations
A typical work day at Air Wisconsin begins with a briefing followed with each agent preparing for his/her flight at his/her gate'
After completing our flights , we take a 30 minutes break and discuss issues encountered and goes back to our gate for the next bank of flight.
I had the opportunity to meet all type of human characters, to interact solving – more... customer issued , handling delays. oversold and cancellations situations.
I leaned be multi-tasked, to be control my temper in a stressful situation and how to handle customer differently but always with the aim of given them satisfactory explanation on their flight situation.
The management is not on my opinion pro-active enough. We have had situation whereby forseable events like mechanical failure had not been handled ahead of time causing great delay and even customer trip disruption and losses to the company in term of accommodating the customer.
Co workers seem to to be friendly , helpful and co-orperative.
The hardest part obviously is that one has to stay at the airport after regular shift when there is an irregular operations due to bad weather, mechanical issued.
The enjoyable part is when customer feel satisfied by your handling of critical and frustrating situations such as delays. – less

Pros: everything else
Cons: compensation
There is no such thing as a typical day. It is always changing. Great for a person who loves a different challenge everyday. It is a very good job, besides the compensation.

Fun place to work, but be prepared...
Passenger Service Agent (Former Employee), Dulles, VAMarch 26, 2014
Pros: cool people to work with, gateway to airline industry
Cons: not a career, questionable mandatory ot, thankless position
Work in all weather conditions, which is probably the hardest part of the job. You're normally guilty before proven innocent when conflict arises. The folks on the ramp are a good group to work with. And you should take advantage of the free flights.

Door to airline industry
Ramp Agent (Former Employee), Dulles, VAMarch 20, 2014
Pros: entry level airport job
Cons: antagonistic management
This is an entry level job in the airline industry. Air Wisconsin doesn't pay much, but you can learn skills that can be used for another airline. If you don't have any experience, the company provides on-the-job training ramp agents, baggage handlers, and other support positions. I worked at IAD and most people were easy enough to get along with, though – more... you will meet some jerks and employees who want to throw you under the bus. The job culture is cliquish. Management is threatening when it comes to following safety procedures, and sometimes harasses employees. Best advice is to get the job, learn ramp and baggage departments, then apply to another airline. Employee turnover is high, and the company is not loyal to most employees. Employees have to join a union, which mans you have money taken out of your paycheck, and you get some representation when management tries to suspend you from work, or fire you. Your union representative will be one of your fellow employees. Schedules are bid for every 3 months, and the schedules are chosen by seniority, that means the employees that are there the longest get the best jobs or get the day schedules. – less

Long hours, fun workforce
Passenger Service Agent (Former Employee), Dulles, VAMarch 16, 2014
Pros: workforce, flight benefits
Cons: unqualified payroll team, forced overtime constantly under no necessary conditions.
A typical day includes getting forced to stay on mandatory overtime, but you work with a good team. Fun work environment where the lower-level managers actively participate in helping the workforce whenever possible.

Fun people and a never boring job
Passenger Service Agent (Former Employee), Milwaukee WIMarch 6, 2014
Pros: co-workers and a fun job to perform
Cons: health care and job security
I loved my co workers and how fun the job was!!!! The hardest part was their was no job security because it was a contracted company. There were no benefits for part time employees and it was extremely difficult to get full time because your place was based on seniority with the company.

Good job but management sucks
Passenger Service Agent (Current Employee), Sterling, VAJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: free flight benefits on us airways (amarican airlines) which ever name the decide to keep, 401k, health insurance
Cons: low pay, management really does not care about employees.
we are working under united airlines. we are incharge of their express flights. the job is very easy but it is also easy to mess up if you dont pay attention. A typical work day is pretty much waiting for he planes to come in and then you matrial them in and un load the bags then load the new bags for the next destination. management on the other hand – more... sucks they have favorites and if you arent on that list them they will lie on you to make you look bad. co workers are cool but of course you have those times where you dont get along. some times we have long breaks 2-3 hours depending on the day. – less

Flight Benefits only
Customer Service and Ramp Operations (Current Employee), Dulles airportNovember 17, 2013
Pros: free flights
Cons: to much for little pay
You work harder than you get paid for... this jobs SHOULD start at $12-$15 hour not $9.75... outside condition rain, heat, and cold the only offset to the little pay is the flight benefits.. fly where ever FREE or for a small fee for international flights.. Great bunch of folks you work with(co-workers). However managements could use some improvements.. – more... ALWAYS an issue on your paychecks.. missed counted hours or missed days of pay... so Payroll Dept. could use some help too.. overall its a Job not so much a career... – less

HORRIBLE MANAGERS
PASSENGER SERVICE AGENT (Former Employee), midland, txNovember 8, 2013
Pros: friendly tdys - they are the only one who'll train
Cons: horrible managers and work place
MANAGERS NEED TO LEARN HOW TO TREAT PEOPLE WITH RESPECT ESPECIALLY THEIR OWN WORKERS.

LOCAL WORKERS WHOSE BEEN THERE FOR A WHILE WERE SO LAZY AND WERE LATE ALL THE TIME

CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE TOO.

A GOOD SUGGESTION TO THE MAIN OFFICE IS TO DO A REVAMP OR GET NEW HIRES TO MANAGE AND WORK IN THIS BRANCH.. CAUSE THIS IS THE WORST WORK PLACE EVER.

Horrible company
Passenger Service Agent (Former Employee), Alcoa, TNNovember 5, 2013
Pros: part time job
Cons: no organization in the company and lack of staff
Never any structure when working. Always moved into a new role because of co-workers not showing up and lack of staff hired. It was a great job to learn the aircraft's and work with customers in all situations good, but mostly bad. The hardest part was telling customers when flights are cancelled and they were going to say goodbye to their family for – more... the last time, or have bridesmaids miss weddings due to the flights being over booked. – less
