Good for needed experience
Warehouse Agent (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 3, 2018
Working with Mercury Air Cargo was a good learning experience overall with pay above minimum wage. Tasks are very easy to learn and its easy enough to be able to pick up and keep up with the veterans in the warehouse. Every task is on a timed schedule and needs to finished by the time demanded. Teamwork plays a huge factor in being able to complete tasks efficiently. Climbing within the company can be very competitive, and though the pay is decent, most employee's still find themselves taking on a secondary job to be able to live comfortably.
Pros
Good place to gain experience
Cons
Possible dead periods in the work day, Wages could be better when compared to the competition

Mercury can be a good place to start a career if you plan on staying in the cargo industry
CSA- Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 30, 2018
Mercury air pays good, management kinda sucks. not everyone is family oriented and they really don't care what your situation is, they will find every which way they can to have you chose them over family. The CEO might not know this because no one really goes above and beyond HR steps. But one day someone else will go above and beyond to the CEO and then the company will once more get sued again for LACK of employment help and LACK of CARE for their employment.
Pros
good pay
Cons
you have to go above and beyond what your job duties are

Great team position
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJune 22, 2018
When I was employed here, I worked with a group of 6 or 7 people. The team I was part of was very supportive from the first days of training until I was transferred to a different shift where I worked alone. Everyone is very friendly and extremely helpful in working together to get the tasks done.

Bad company
General housekeeping (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJune 17, 2018
This company was very unfair. They did not provide us with breaks and lunches as per law. The manager had his favorites and it was very obvious. This was not a good job, I learned good job skills but the environment and the treatment of their employees is very negative and demoralizing.

Can get busy, but overall, a pretty relaxed job.
Warehouse Agent (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 5, 2018
Might spend the day helping drivers at the dock, breaking down or tying down pallets. There are unlimited things you can learn from this job. A very diverse workplace and many co-workers are helpful and respectful. I've learned a lot about the airport and how to position pallets upon the plane and what types of cargo can go on a plane. Management can sometimes become overwhelmed with a lot, but they're there for you as much as possible. The most enjoyable part about working there is the people you'll be working with and, the part of getting to learn new and important things about the airfield.
Pros
Relaxed, Cookouts, Co-Workers
Cons
Short breaks

Independent Cargo Security Screener (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 1, 2018
I did enjoy working for them, it was a relax environment but had favoritism on to train their employees. Managers were good people but lack of advancement made me leave the job. The main manager would choose who wanted to be train for screener when others wanted to learn more than just sit and relax.

Not my cup of tea
Import Agent (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA 90045January 4, 2018
It is a good starting job if you want an entry level job to get your foot in the door working at LAX.
It's a 24-hour company so there are all types of schedules, will most likely work holidays if your scheduled days off do not land on the actual holiday.
They do not really work with you if you have school/kids, basically you get your schedule and thats it.
There is warehouse jobs and desk jobs

Good workplace, Just very low paying
Warehouse Agent (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 5, 2017
During my time at Mercury Cargo, my experience was moderate. I enjoyed the people there and the easiness of the job functions. The job was just very low paying and they force you to take insurance which cuts your salary drastically.
