Ramp Lead Agent (Current Employee), SeaTac, WAJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: flying priveleges, good boss.

This job keeps you on your feet. I lead a team of ramp agents to provide baggage handling services for an airline. We make sure to load and unload baggage in a timely manner to ensure the arrival and departure of passengers and aircraft in the time provided.

A Fun and sometimes thrilling environment
Ramp Agent (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, paJanuary 23, 2015
Overall pretty good place to work even though the pay wasn't the best having free flying benefits surely made it worth it. I learned how to load the plane, different things about the plane itself, and how to work as a team.

Okay
Lead Ramp Agent (Current Employee), Savannah, GADecember 28, 2014
Pros: flight benefits
Cons: low pay, terrible workers
The job isn't hard work. The hardest thing to deal with is the type of people they hire. Most people are very lazy and do not want to do anything. Flight benefits are awesome, but the pay is low. It is easy to advance. I made Lead in 4 months. You have the ability to transfer and work all over the world.

Well set up organization.
Performance Supervisor (Former Employee), Minneapolis,MNDecember 22, 2014
Pros: shift trading
Cons: health care, pay
Well set up together job which I've gained tons of experience being a supervisor for 3 years. Staffing and consistency is a major issue. Hard to keep people due to factors such as hours, pay and people seeking different opportunities constantly. A typical day on the ramp working outside on aircrafts should consist of 5-7 field agents working on large aircrafts consisting of 120-178 people per flight. As I stated it's been a struggle with at times having 3-4 agents per shift working pretty much as two people for tasks. Timing has always been a key concern when doing tasks which at times it's hard to successfully get the aircraft out on time when short but we do the best as we can at a safely manor.

Great opportunity as a second income...not a career.
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee), Moline, ILOctober 29, 2014
Pros: free flights available on a space available baasis
Cons: poor pay. inadequate staffing
The staff I worked with were great and and friendly. But the company as a whole continues to take away our benefits. After 11 years in order to stay on with the company I had to take a $3/hr. pay cut. They also continue to take away available man hours for our schedulers to assign for our flights. Which means we have to continue to work more flights with less people. And in the crunch time when you have flights running behind and perhaps two or three flights on the ground at the same time, there is a crazy amount of pressure to still get them out on time. This leads to injuries when trying to load and unload heavy bags super fast, and can lead to not having the time needed for proper safety awareness. If flts are a little late, the management gets yelled at and they in turn yell at us. We are required to also have all of this important safety and security training and are given some inside security knowledge not available to the general public, yet the fact that they now cap your pay at a maximum of $10.10 per hour makes it hard to attract and keep good, intelligent, trustworthy employees who will be truly dedicated to their job, when the company makes it very hard to live and support a family on such meager pay and benefits.

Very unorganized with many schedule changes
Bag Room Agent (Former Employee), RDUOctober 14, 2014
Pros: 12 hour shifts
Cons: short breaks, not enough help
A typical work day was very high paced and steady. Every mistake is affects everyone not just one certain area. Management was not appreciative of the work most of the employees put in they went off of hear say then actually doing an investigation on many employees. My co-workers were the best, I got along with the majority of them. The hardest part of the job would be lifting a 100lbs or more bag. I enjoyed working with all of my coworkers they made it very pleasant for me to show up and o my job proficiently.

Amazing benefits that make it all worth it.
Gate Agent (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNOctober 7, 2014
Pros: free flights (unlimited in us, canada, and mexico) and very cheap flights overseas.
Cons: stressful environment, very little contact with management.
A lot of turn over so most people didn't really know what they were doing.
Long days and odd hours.
The customer service aspect of it was both incredibly rewarding and incredibly difficult.
The flight benefits are amazing and made anything else worth it!

Interesting yet disappointing workplace with great flight benefits
PM Lead Ramp Agent/ Agent -In- Charge (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: incredible flight/ travel opportunites
Cons: low wages, long hours, short breaks, no benefits or job security.
A typical day at work consists of continuous running around to make up for low employee count, constant worry about whether you'll be fired and favoritism. This job has taught me that hard work and consistency are not always as important as saving a few dollars (I say that sarcastically of course). Just like classmates, co-workers vary between great and very helpful, to horrible and lazy. Making work twice as rough for us all. Either way we're in this together. Management seems to be in over their heads at times. One could say that they'd rather risk operational efficiency than to pay fair wages and house enough workers to properly run the company. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the large amount of aircrafts coming in with so few employees per shift. The most enjoyable part of the job also turns out to be the only perk; amazing traveling opportunities and flight benefits.

Third Party Ground Handling in the race to the bottom
Station Manager (Former Employee), IowaSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: flight benefits
Cons: high turn over, little reaction by upper management until it is a disaster
Trying to keep prices competitive with other third party ground handlers created limited hours and split shifts for employee that were really seeking a full time job even if it was starting at $8.75 an hour.

Management expects manager to blur the lines and work among the operation, which then gives the perception to the hourly employees that the manager is supposed to work their shift when they can't or don't want to work.

It's pretty much what you would expect.
Ramp Agent (Former Employee), Denver, COSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: travel benefits and meeting people of all types of different backgrounds.
Cons: though necessary the security checks all day long were quite annoying.
The airport was an interesting job as long as we were properly staffed for a flight, otherwise it could be a nightmare. Your first flight came in at around 7 and you worked for about an hour or two and then you had about 3 hours to relax until the last flight came in at 10:30.

Your typical day would depend on where you were placed. I could be set off to get the Cargo for the flight, down in the bag room sorting local and transfer bags, or I could hanging out on the ramp preparing it for the arrival of our flight.

Once the flight arrived you had 20 minutes to get the plane cleaned, refilled, and al the bags removed from the compartments before it was boarded again for take off.

Fun Job
Ramp Lead, Operations Agent (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALSeptember 27, 2014
The only issue with this company was working in the elements, no matter the weather you are working, but the job was fun, getting to work on airplanes and sometimes getting to see famous people. The best part about it though is the flight benefits, flying for free is always nice.
