It was a great job in the beginning.
Customer Service/ Ramp Service (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – April 6, 2016
When I started with United Airlines in 1987, is was a career choice. Great benefits, free medical, dental, and a great pension plan. Plus almost free travel for life, and the pay wasn't bad. But things changed after 9/11, pay-cuts, lost pension plan, and in the end we were outsourced. We could keep our jobs if we moved to Seattle or Portland, or Denver, but to stay in Spokane you would work for some non union contract company for $10.00 an hour and no benefits.
Great team of coworkers and travel benefits for life.
After the merger with Continental less trust from the company, and less job security.
