I liked the job until I got fired
Ramp Service Agent (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – December 19, 2013
I was working as a part time Ramp Service Agent for only 10-14 days.
I liked the job overall. I was there on time everyday, I was always on time, never late, and did my job.
Here is where the problems come in.
On the day I picked up my first paycheck, the director took me into his office, and stated "I received an email stating something came back on your background." The director wouldn't tell me nothing except that.
I spent some time looking into it, and found out that my background is clean, and what he said was a lie. I called several times, and they ignored my phone calls. Finally, I got a hold of the director again, and he stated that I won't be getting my job back. Everything that he stated as to why I was fired, is a lie. I even asked for an email asking about why they fired me, I still haven't received it. From what I understand, that is a Federal right that is being violated, and I've been talking to a lawyer, which is how I found that out.
I spoke to HR on the phone, and sent an email to her, She said she'd look into it and has never gotten back to me.
It's been over a month since I was fired.
Also some of the containers that we had to move were over 3000 pounds pushing and pulling, with 2-4 people. We used a platform that had rollers, to move the large containers on. The wages should be more than $9.45 an hour in my opinion, plus people working at FedEx doing similar things were making $10-11 an hour.
I would not recommend working for this company.
being at the airport, supervisors were nice
low pay, 3 hour shifts, lies
