Bad management, staff treated like expendable resource
Aviation Security Officer (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – October 26, 2017
I have worked here as an ASO for almost a year.
Management make huge errors with pay, cannot be trusted.
If you must work here, keep perfect records of all hours you do, all leave you book off, all payments you receive for work and overtime. At least that way, when it does all go wrong, you might get some of what you're owed back.
Annualised contracts are awful, you will not get a social life and say goodbye to your weekends.
They change your shifts at short notice, and you will be regularly expected to begin 12 hour shifts at 3am.
Anyone who has too much sick leave (2 or 4 occasions) gets sacked.
But the staff are quite nice. Most of the issues are with the resources department.
Getting paid for your breaks is one good thing about it.
If you can work elsewhere, do.
long hours, expected to get up at 1:30am very often, your pay will be wrong
