Ok for travel, not for life.
RAMP SUPERVISOR (GSP) (Current Employee) – Greenville, SC – April 21, 2019
In my experience, Upper Management does poorly in understanding the unique operations that take place in each station.
Corporate is completely disconnected from daily operations. HR is not easily accessable, and the training department does not contribute to the station training. Many policies are in writing, but with the disconnect of communication, stations are following the "old ways" from what they were taught years ago.
Employees are never told about how to access the internal company website for vital information.
Employees that are not part of the "popular crowd" are targeted and harrassed. Targeting and favoritism runs rampant, since HR is not on site.
The pay is vastly higher or lower depending on where you work. Experience, size of the operation, station report cards, and job responsibilities are not factored in to earning potential. Instead, earnings are governed by the economic conditions of the city you work in.
Example: I worked in a city 100 miles away in the same state. When I I transfered, I had over 10 years of experience at all levels nationwide, with multiple awards. With all of that, I was passed over for an interview 4 times. The position I wanted to interview for was given to someone who quit after 2 weeks, and then to someone with no experience, but was friends with the person conducting the interviews. In the transfer I lost 41% income, and was offered a meager .35 cents more than a new hire with no experience. Which also put me .15 cents away from reaching a salary cap .50 cents lower than a new hire with no experience at my former station.
Travel is no longer free. It is highly taxed, and deducted from a small paycheck. There is no way to pay for the flight in advance, so employees could actually end up getting a bill for a paycheck instead of income.
