At first will seem like a difficult job, but once you learn what to do it becomes easy. Since working here I've learns how to operate forklifts and to build pallets. Also on the ramp I've learned how to work in inside all planes and able to operate all heavy machinery

RAMP AGENT (Former Employee) – Kenner, LA – June 21, 2015
A typical day at work was a lot of waiting for trucks to deliver packages. when the trucks arrived It was time to start moving and getting the job done. I learned that having a good work system is good to have and can be productive. Managing this job was easing going because everyone was in one place all the time and everyone was able to be seen in order to get the plane to go out on its scheduled time to depart . This particular job working with co-worker can be stressful at times. Some didn't want to lift up on heavy boxes and want to stay doing the same thing, where else others wanted the opportunity to the most easiest part of the job. The hardest thing about the job was lifting heavy boxes and moving them from one place to another. The enjoyable thing about the job there was a lot of free time to relax if this was a part time job and that you only worked for three hours.
A typical day at work you start out by preping all the documents before you open. We open at 8:00 am each day. As soon as we open we help drivers with what they are picking up as well as with what they might be dropping off. I prep information for the Import flights that come in. The co-workers are nice to work with but sometime there are those that don't do what they are suppose to do. So it gets hard when that happens because we have to work twice as hard. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we finish everything and it feels like such an accomplishment.

The management is cool. They're really laid back. There's no room for advancement. We work super hard everyday but don't really have benefits. They just started sick/vacation days for full time employees in January of 2015. We don't really have a set time that we're working. We have to go by what time the planes come in. So, if they're late, we stay late. I like that I don't get bossed around constantly. We all do our own thing as long as the jobs get done when they're supposed to be. It's kind of like warehouse work for me, which I do enjoy.
Loader/Driver (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 19, 2015
I really enjoyed this company, management was shaky due to transition but a lot of good employees held the company together in the transition: Station Managers for the contract were amazing, and there was decent amount of training involved.
Customer Service, Load Master, Ramp Agent (Former Employee) – Seattle WA – January 15, 2015
Really enjoyed this company, management was shaky due to transition but a lot of good employees held the company together in the transition. Working in the elements are difficult at times but do able. Station Managers for the contract were amazing, and there was decent amount of training involved.
A typical day was very long, the management was too relaxed and the equipment operators where destructive and inconsiderate. Learned a lot about airport ground support equipment. My co-workers where also too relaxed and selective of what they did leaving me all the big repairs. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of repairing the equipment.
Going home everyday
No benefits at all in almost two years didn't get a raise or even and evaluation.

~ Checking in passengers and Assisting passengers. ~ I learned to have patients with customers. ~ Management was ok but not great. ~ The Co-workers was great but not perfect. ~ The hardest part of the job was...having to carry luggage off the carousel and tracking down where missing luggage went. ~ The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a smile on passenger's faces.
