A good example of how not to organize a company.
Ramp Agent (Former Employee), Cheektowaga, NYApril 14, 2014
Pros: easy to get overtime because they bleed employees.
Cons: no actual break time when you start working, no opportunity for significant advanement or raises, unsafe working conditions, regularly forced to do extra work due to understaffing.
Third shift includes simple and relatively easy tasks, but the division of labor is only occasionally done reasonably and it's a coin-flip whether or not other employees will help you. Supervisors are hit-or-miss in competency and initiative, training was inadequate in several areas, management was flighty and unreliable, and the work load varies wildly – more... and unpredictably depending on how the day goes.

All around an unhealthy working environment in most cases, though the other employees are often easy to get along with. Unfortunately they bleed employees constantly, with people often walking off the job outright due to the many problems with how the company is managed. Nothing about the job is really difficult besides having to deal with the management and the incompetent supervisors, who are about half of them. That said, nothing about the job was enjoyable either.

Pay was meager and benefits were nonexistant, not terribly surprising given the menial nature of the job but not a thing that encourages exemplary effort either, and not reflective of the emphasis given by management on the importance of the security check portion of our work. There are no raises given unless you go from another shift at $8.50 to 3rd shift at $8.75, or go from position to position is the only room for advancement, with a cap at $12/hour for supervisors. Management will refuse to work with you if you want to go part time. – less

Grounds and Aircraft Cleaner/Team Lead (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: hour lunch
Cons: healthcare
The typical day at Jet stream ground services was dealing with a hole lot of air crafts. The co-workers and management team where the best I have ever worked for. I made it to team lead meaning on certain days I was responsible for the team task. Flight assignments, full clean assignments. The most enjoyable part of the job was full cleanings where – more... the hole team got on air craft to do a complete clean. – less

The work/life is not equally balanced and you will get blamed for something that was out of your controlm so your higher ups won't take heat.

Good and Bad
Ramp Agent (Former Employee), Memphis, TNOctober 28, 2013
When you only have a team of four unloading an airplane and two of them call in it can be tough. Unloading an airplane with four people is hard enough but it can be done. I ejoyed working at JeyStream but the management staff was horrible.

Aircraft Cleaner (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCOctober 7, 2013
This job is an outdoors positions for the most part. A lot of walking and carrying bags 25lbs+. I would say this job is for young adults just graduating. I learned to deal with rules being implemented one minute then looked over and changed time after time. This has made

Pros: good groundtime waiting break
Cons: lots of walking and carrying if u dont like to work hard
I've learned differents things like how to make better the assigments in the company by taking advice from management and ideas;The hardest part of it i think it was is how to motivate your team and make them think positive which it was challenging to make the task done when the time wasnt on our sides, but I made it work and enjoyable for them with – more... my positive attitude and working hard. I enjoy to be on the aircrafts and be part of the company and be the one who made the difference. – less

Labor work!!
Aircraft Provisioner (Former Employee), Denver, COFebruary 14, 2013
Pros: payed holidays and more overtime
Cons: not a specified break time
the work we do at jetstream is not hard. it is like cleaning and restocking your house. the management is not perfect. you cant expect to meet coworkers that shares the same view that you do, each and every coworker see things different than the way your eyes see, but all you have to do is respect their beliefs and treat them the way you want yourself – more... to be treated. – less

Needs new management
Lead Aircraft Cleaner (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCFebruary 2, 2013
Pros: meeting new people, running a team on my own
Cons: healthcare, management, stereotypical
The good part about working here was meeting new people and seeing airplanes for the first time. I learned a lot about cleaning, leading groups, and being in control and knowing how to use it. However, the human resources and head management (big boss) did not show that they had a heart for any of their workers and they seem to only care about getting – more... the job done and not the fact that you ate only human and that you actually have a life outside of the workplace. Also very unhealthy and I was doing management work that I was qualified for and did not receive management pay. – less

Poor management from the upper level - Decent pay for managers
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Charlotte North CarolinaNovember 23, 2012
Pros: decent pay for managers
Cons: total disregard for employees and their benefits
Company does not consider the needs of the employees. Agent level pay is average, however, it is very difficult for them to pay for their benefits or have time off.

Aircraft Cleaner (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 18, 2012
Pros: some down time to build energy
Cons: management is very unorganized
we clock in get our supplies and get started on red eye flights, in which the cleans are more detailed and more time is giving to get the job done. all day we walk from gate to gate cleaning planes.Donw time is giving to have breaks and rest. I love my job, but the hardest part is dealing with unfair management,and the best part is the people you meet – more... and the new oppunities you come across. – less

Meeting a wide variety of people, got alone with co-workers.
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCJune 3, 2012
Pros: meeting a wide variety of people.
Cons: healthcare, sometimes no breaks, long hours
Meeting different people also learning a new thing everyday. Great co-workers work really well together. Management was very nice. Hardest part of the job was sometimes u did know what time you were going to get off, and sometimes have customers getting upset at you over somethings you have no control over.

Typical Day
Airport Ramp Lead (Former Employee), Savannah, GAApril 17, 2012
Pros: working aroud aircraft
Cons: physically exhausting, working in all weather conditions
Jetstream was a good company to work for, unfortuantely the average of 12 tons of bags a day was a physical strain. In addition, if the aircraft was delayed due to weather or any other circumstance, you had a set number of minutes to completely turn the aircraft. In addition, if your last aircraft was delayed, you had to stay to work the aircraft, even – more... if it was hours late. – less

Worst Place to Work at CMH Airport
Ramp Agen/Cleaner (Former Employee), Columbus, Ohio CHM airportFebruary 28, 2012
Cons: lots of responsibility and no pay.
No benefits; get fired for no reason; Management lies to cover their butts, you the whipping boy. Do not provide a safe environment at all to work in. Union busters. Can't trust anyone, too much politics among employes that can't tell the truth (as bad a management).
