So much training for very little pay.
Ramp Agent/Baggage Handler (Former Employee) –  Amarillo, TXSeptember 9, 2018
Management here is unfair and favors their favorites. Team leads are also biased and unwilling to train the new guys. You have no opinion here when your first starting out. Don’t apply. You’ll thank me later.
Pros
Some down time
Cons
Everything ( Mgmt., co-workers, schedule). The list goes on and on.

Avoid at all costs
Ramp Agent/Baggage Handler (Former Employee) –  Sarasota, FLSeptember 4, 2018
at times a hostile work environment; current management in complete disarray, running around with heads chopped off; contract with Delta, station manager goes overboard and hot-headed at times. Avoid GAT; goto Swissport or Worldwide.
Pros
None
Cons
Disrespectful management, lost at times, hostile work environment

was ok
Ramp Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIAugust 4, 2018
Management was seen everyday. Shift supervisors were trusted to run the shift and there was some interaction with management. Management was willing to help out where and when needed.

exciting place to work
Ramp Agent (Current Employee) –  Hapeville, GAJuly 25, 2018
Its a great place to work as you learn a lot and you get to interact with the public and have the opportunity to travel.
You load and unload planes, you walk planes in and out, you work in all kinds of weather - rain, sleet, snow, hail cold and heat. You have to dress for the unknown and have back up clothes. Management has your back and is at times on the ramp with you learning and seeing how to make the job better for you.
The hardest part of the job is loading and unloading bags and working planes back to back with no break at times.
Best part of the job is being able to travel. Meeting the passengers is a plus as well seeing where they are going and learning about the place in case you want to go in the future.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Weather as you work outside

Avoid this Place of Employment
Lead (Former Employee) –  Panama City, FLJuly 10, 2018
While flight schedules will change, changing someone's schedule and not notifying them is unacceptable. People bid for the schedule they can work. Safety is neglected here, their payroll is a nightmare. I am still waiting for pay that was due to me a month ago. They tell you the job is one thing but then stack on more duties when you get hired (duties they told us were not ours to do). Extremely poor management that is willing to use it's staff as a scapegoat.
Pros
None
Cons
The entire place.

Ramp Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Syracuse, NYJune 12, 2018
My last statement was more for GAT the Hancock airport my apology but they let who they are partnering with dictate a lot about what goes on. People don't protect their workers from those out to get others

Fun place to work
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Gulfport, MSJune 11, 2018
A fun place to work with the correct team. The job can be fast pace and can offer travel. In non peak hours it can become slow. Leadership needs to have a strong appearance.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Does not have direct deposit. Little pay.

Calm work environment with a study pace of work
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) –  Savannah, GAMay 26, 2018
Always make sure your work ramp is clean & free of foreign debris to be ready to service incoming Aircraft.
There is a lot of downtown between flights but in that the bag room is open to receive bags to be taken to TSA. When a flight is on ground their is usually a turn around time that is established.
Pros
Lots of Down time between flights
Cons
Departures may be pushed back causing multiple flight to be on ground.

Worthiness
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Burbank, CAApril 26, 2018
This company could be an awesome career for many, but the pay isn't reasonable to the work that each agent brings to the table. Supervisors are tasked with a lot of responsibilities, but do not get any bonus for an amazing week with on time departures and 100% bag scans. Agents get in trouble for getting paid to work through their lunch breaks even though they don't have the time to take one. It's understandable that the California law keeps companies enforcing the lunch breaks even though getting the meal premium is money the company should be paying since the agents are dealing with their passengers. It's not like the agents are just hanging out and getting paid for it. When agents push through a shift that had continuous delayed flights and dealing with horrible passengers that are not happy with the delay it caused stress, but they do it anyways because they're getting paid for it.
Pros
Flight benefits, get to assist passengers getting to their destination
Cons
Don't have reasonable pay

A Good starter job
Bag Runner (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 14, 2018
GAT airline ground support is a good starter job and it was my first job. There are only way you can make a career out of this job is to become a manager. However the work isn't very difficult but I feel as though the employees there should get paid a bit more.

Horrible place to work!
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMarch 25, 2018
This job is terrible! Upper management does not care about their employees at all. The benefits are lacking and the so is the pay. The worst part is that they don't even pay you for all of the time you work. They take hours out of your time clock! The schedules change regularly and some days you could be there THE ENTIRE DAY just waiting for hours for the next flight. There is no balance between work life and personal life and sadly its just not worth it.
Pros
It's a job, I guess.
Cons
Everything!
