Great opportunity as a second income...not a career.
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.
