have its ups and downs like any work place
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee), Newark, NJAugust 11, 2014
a typical day at work would be a slow day then the pace picks up with passengers gradually asking questions.
what i learned is pretty much every thing about the airport
management like most job abuse their power and have their own little favoritism
some of the co-workers are very conceited and bipolar
the hardest part of the job not getting any over time
the most enjoyable part of the job meeting new people, getting over time, learning new things about the airport, having conversations with resourceful supervisors

positive enviroment and very professional
Equipment Operator (Current Employee), John F. Kennedy AirportAugust 8, 2013
Pros: open communication
Cons: the influence of team players in a family enviroment.
Arrive early and dress up for the day, depending on work order an/or weather conditions defines the day. A typical day can consist of driving a garbage truck ,sweeper, or ROV on the ramp side depending on priority. Every three months derubberizing is a priority which is done at night, over a 12 hour period. I also drive a beam truck in the hangers which is a scruber. Other days ROV on the ramp side. – more... What I've learned is how to work on the ramp side using heavy equipment for ex. multifunction equipment and pay-loaders and the importance of time management. There is a chain of command in which I follow to minimize mistakes. My co-workers and I are a team. The hardest part of the job is working with someone who is lazy. The most enjoyable part of the job is being trained on new equipment and excelling. – less

A day at work!
Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAOctober 31, 2012
Pros: my work i.d. is my bus pass. so i don't have to pay for the bus!
Cons: we are government funded; so every year or 2 there are layoffs.
My typical day at work, I pay bills all day. There are some breaks or down times when everybody socializes. I'm going to school for Accounting, so I have learned a lot on my job about the cost to run a company. For the most part I like all of my co-workers. I can work with anybody. I don't think there's a real hard part to my job. If you show me once or twice, I can do it. I'm a fast learner. The most enjoyable part of my job is my supervisor. She's a great team player and trainer!
