Milking Aviatiors
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CAMarch 24, 2016
Typical day at work: Come in the morning/ afternoon. Check equipment, vehicles. Check airplane fuel order, pull orders. Rest. repeat.
What I learned: Airport operation.

The company knows that pilots are willing to do anything for the aviation experience. Thus company takes advantage of them with low compensation (minimum wage), and arbitrary work shifts. However Co-workers will generally have same interest as you. So they will be easy to work with.
Pros
experience
Cons
Low wage, high risk job

I would rather pick up trash with a work release program than work for this company
Line Technician (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, LAFebruary 4, 2016
Worked for this company for 5 months. When I started I was promised a day shift which turned into being forced into a mid shift then a couple nights out of the week to 4-5 nights. Management is poor. If u are not clicked up with the top 3 you get over looked and forced to do what they do t want to do. It's a job, but be prepared for straight bull
Pros
Free popcorn
Cons
Poor management

There are better opportunities out there for more money.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Tallahassee, FLNovember 24, 2015
this particular location was full of deceit from the beginning. If you aren't all about subservience 100% of the time then forget prospering at the job. Show that you know what you're doing and they'll quickly take advantage of it, by making you work more without proper compensation. They prefer mostly dumb blonde personalities so you'll find yourself having a hard time if that isn't the kind of person you are. Many individuals there have a lot of issues with each other and their willingness to work with you will be based mostly off of personal preference. Don't expect to be trained properly either. If you ever have an issue HR can do nothing but give helpless sympathy. Issues are never brought to the GM and if word gets out that you tried talking to HR even once, the CSM and GM will bully you about it. Their solution everything is to do whatever it takes to fit in with every and anyone. Also, personality outweighs job skills and knowledge 100% here, certain CSRs will likely not know their job but will get away with any and all mistakes made, along with preferential scheduling, especially if you're more knowledgable or reliable than them. The GM is unprofessional and is quick to lose his temper and yell or say insulting things to employees faces or behind their backs. Try to get along with everyone and not share your business with anyone because everyone would have heard your story by then. The diversity they boast about is nothing more than skin color. The togetherness is false and fleeting, people will be quick to lie about your efforts or refuse to work with you respectfully.  more... Management makes excuses constantly and they are slow to get anything done. I was stuck running errands for a month because the CSM didn't get my papers in to be badged. If they find they don't like you, they'll use tactics to intimidate (especially the GM) and make you feel your job is on the line. HR can't stick up for you outright either because their job security is a concern as well. There are better places to get a start at, for more money. This job will make you feel trapped. A lot of people working here are either low on morale or complacent, despite being there for years. Being even remotely intelligent is alarming and a huge turnoff for most [of the men] who work there and you will be treated differently from the get-go. I care too much about the people I know to even recommend they work here. You too, save yourself the trouble and find a better, more reliable company to work for.  less

Line Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Medford, ORSeptember 18, 2015
Planes fly in constantly throughout the day; therefore, it is imperative to know and be aware what planes are going to be arriving in the near future and to get the right amount of preparation for each plane ready ahead of time so that there are no time delays. Extreme organization and efficiency helps work days run by more smoothly here at Million Air.

Great possibilities, poor exocution
Airport Line Serviceman (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VASeptember 5, 2015
The Job was fun except for being in the heat or cold all day. The Co-workers were mostly great guys. The management was extremely political and power hungry. Overall atmosphere was one of wariness due to others accusing others of breaking rules when they didnt, or taking pictures when they did just to get them in trouble. Favoritism in that some could break really important safety rules and not get in trouble and others would hardly do anything and get time off without pay. Very unfair and biased workplace due to the HR director having direct and over reaching control of the line department, and a puppet manager in charge of the line service, but unable to do anything substantive.
Pros
Cool job. Lots of airplanes
Cons
Heat and Cold, and horrible HR manager Crystal Grant

A friendly workplace with a popcorn machine
Line Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Burbank, CASeptember 1, 2015
This aviation company is a very elite and highly rated one. All pilots and passengers enjoy the luxury of the 5-star quality service. A typical day includes parking arriving aircraft, helping the passengers with their luggage and getting them safely into their limousines. Then the aircraft itself is serviced; refueling, lavatory and potable water services. Both the management and co-workers are very proficient and are hands-on. Towing the aircraft is both the hardest yet enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Free catering
Cons
Inclement weather

Fast paced work with one time and returning customers.
Line Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAOctober 19, 2014
a typical day at work included refueling aircraft, customer service, troubleshooting equipment, filing basic paperwork, and taking inventory of fuel.

I learned how to fuel certain types of fixed wing aircraft.

The hardest part of the job was staying busy during slow times of the day.

The most enjoyable part of my day was seeing the customer happy and seeing repeat customers
Pros
fun and pleasant coworkers, guarenteed 40 hours with oppertunity of overtime
Cons
slow days with nothing to do

Fun work place. Something new each day.
Line Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Rome, NYMay 9, 2014
A typical day at work would be clocking in and then heading up to the fuel farm to sump the trucks and/or fuel farm. After sumping we head back up to the FBO to see what traffic will will need to prepare for. It is a great place to work. We are like a family. Everyone gets along great. The management is great,
Cons
no heath care

Does not require much to qualify for the position.
Line Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Sandston, VADecember 19, 2013
The position is great for someone looking to get their foot in the door for advancement into management. You get to learn a lot of things about the aircraft industry and about fuel transferring. It's a very fascinating industry to be in. However, you are exposed to the elements almost your entire shift, every day.
Pros
holiday dinners, tips, downtime.
Cons
no scheduled breaks (because planes can come in anytime), exposure to elements, and fuel fumes. pay (compared to the work that you do)

Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Van Nuys, CAApril 22, 2013
Million Air was also an FBO, fix-based-operation, located on Van Nuys airport. It was one of the busier FBO's which kept me on my toes and trained me to be a wonderful multi-tasker.
Pros
a very exciting fbo to work with on the airport.
Cons
constant changing of management.
