Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The work can be fun, however I often felt like I was babysitting the employees. That was only when I, in my HR capacity, was even included on any event. It has been made clear that HR isn't always welcome in any discussion or in any of the operations. There is a very large learning curve with this position.

Never apply

This is the worst company I ever worked for. Dnata in Tennessee is a joke! First of all you don’t get any flight benefits. There is low pay and little hours to earn. Management is very unorganized and only care about themselves. You won’t get paid. Dnata don’t give employees there bonuses that they are promised. Absolutely horrible company to work for. Dnata in TN is operating for British airways and the training is very rushed and unethical. You are trained last minute and management themselves don’t even know how to work the operation!

Terrible

Honestly this is the worst company to work in I swear! They don’t care about anything not even you, only money!! “Oh you had a work accident I’m sorry but it’s your fault so your paying out of your pocket not the company” Even worked hours are missing they don’t pay you completely they cut your hours, PTO doesn’t exist to them it’s a illusion they act stupid when it comes to paying your hours even if you submit it in front of the face. Overall don’t apply here I wouldn’t recommend this awful company with poor management, lack of experience lack of everything just greedy for money

Pros

N/a

Cons

Everything

Not very hard of work but people made it bad.

The work that was done at the facility was not hard. The supervisors is what made it bad, felt like they didn't know what they were doing. If they got new sups maybe it'll be a better place to work.

Great job

I loved it so much. It was a life changing experience. Working hand on and behind the scenes of what goes on in the airport. And just the entire experience in general.

Underpaid

Too much expected from you, not enough pay.Want everything done professionally but are not willing to pay a fair wage to employees.Only way to get things done is when management come down to visit

Unorganized and not prepared

Great place to work at if bi-lingual. False advertisement and pushes you do stuff that is not apart of your job. Management is all over the place and not prepared for much.

Pros

Maybe the incentive

Cons

Terrible management

Wages were not correct

Wages for their sister company Metro Air Service were 4.78 lower than what I was told. Hours were terribly inconsistent and you couldn't plan anything. I was on call six days a week. I was lucky to get three hours a night if any. 75.00 a day isn't worth risking a great full time job.

Pros

None

Cons

Wages incorrect. Part time and they plan on you all the time.

physical demanding for low pay

as a baggage handler, your job is very physical demanding for a low pay. high turn over rate for this position. If they increase the pay and have more people to work it would be ok.

No

This company need to cater more to there employee...they need go around and see the strength and weakness and work one on one with each worker. I really learn more my second time around as a GSE apprentice .lots of very important fact about equipment and the operation. Two man team ...this promotes for hands on and focus training.

Pros

40 plus hrs week

Cons

No team work

Chaos, Horrible management, Safety violations

The pay isn't competitive. You have to earn all your paid time off so they don't give paid sick or holiday pay. You don't make extra on holidays. There's all these people standing around doing nothing or hiding in bathrooms or in the terminal while people who have a work ethic work. There's no accountability. You can get caught not working all day and not get fired. So for some it's easy money. But for people who like to work don't expect help and plan to wreck your body. Your back will never be the same. And watch your time every day cause they change it on you and take time you worked away The equipment is always breaking down. Steering wheels fall off while driving. We are supposed to wear seatbelts on tugs but they don't work. Maybe other stations are better but Philly is a mess. If they ever did a random drug test no one would be here except the foreign workers. Some employees are violent and there have been physical fights but management doesn't do anything.

Pros

Regular coworkers are cool but don't trust anyone from leads up, weekly pay, you can do nothing and get paid cause someone will do your job for you, easy money

Cons

Horrible management, pay, hours don't add up to time clock, Unsafe equipment, homophobic jokes and slurs, zero accountability, drug use, safety

Good People, Bad Infastructure

The company is good at making promises that they don’t keep. Everyday is a struggle and the higher-ups don’t want to fix the root of the problems. Instead they implement new policies and programs that only mask the problem. They put people in positions that they are unsuited for and then bash you for not completing a task fast enough. The work/life balance is atrocious.

Pros

Job Security

Cons

Work/Life Balance
