Great Station Manager, Tough Job
Ramp Agent/Assistant Team Lead (Current Employee) – Belgrade, MT – April 16, 2015
A typical day consisted of at least one "turn" flight (a flight that arrives and departs from the airport), and at least two "RON" flights (a flight that remains overnight). For security purposes, I cannot explain in detail what I do, but it includes offloading and loading luggage, cleaning the aircraft, and performing a security search on the aircraft.
Our Station Manager is great, but the "leadership" at our station was severely lacking. Day-to-day activities were often made more complicated and arduous than need be, mostly due to poor or non-existent leadership.
At best, this was a good college job. It paid well enough, and wasn't extremely difficult. It is a tough job to do full time though, both mentally and physically. The most enjoyable part was the rare times that you get to work with a good crew.
