I do the weight and balance for two to three aircraft daily. This is computer work where I place the containers with certain weights in locations throughout the aircraft to make it fly most efficiently.
Management's door is always open to communicate and they do not micro-manage.
The hardest part of the job is making departures times when the weather is not cooperating. This makes the office atmosphere stressful.
The best part of the job is the people I work with and the freedom I have in the position.
I hate to complain about this job. I was young and in great shape. They pushed people so hard all the older guys quit. I saw a few people pass out. theyre benifits were great but it was a long term part time position

The work is what you would expect, handling a wide variety of packages and shipping needs. Specific store has no seats for customers or employees, take that as you will. I made an effort to be nice to customers, and it was noticed.

Package Handler (Part-Time) (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – December 2, 2016
The best part of the job is the people. I enjoyed working with nearly everyone that was on my belt. The management team is just as great too.

That is the only thing I did not like was the actual job.
Great people, great atmosphere
Tedious, tiring, stressful, and unreasonable at times
