Good place to work for the long term.
Good place to work for the long term. One of the few places that still offer a pension upon your retirement assuming you have enough years of service.

Productive
As with any other airport, Dulles was a very fast paced place to work at. Nonetheless, it is a lively place to work and is full of opportunities. I only worked part time, so I was not able to experience the benefits of a full time job there, but I do look forward to continue working within their realm in the future.

Proceed with Caution
The Authority has been going through drastic changes since it's audit in 2012. The current President does not care about the employees at all. He will not speak back when an employee speaks to him, and he has no concern for employees. Even though MWAA owns the parking lots and land, employees have to pay for parking and can't use that same parking when they travel. You don't get any type of travel benefits or discounts at all, and instead of laying employees off when they can't afford to keep them. The put them on performance probation and then force them to resign. The made me do it to two of my employees, and they did it to someone that I referred to the company, and two other Managers.
Pros
Public Procurement
Cons
No care for employees

Decent Part-time job
Airport Ambassador is mainly positioned inside U.S. Customs to assist inbound international travelers use the Automated Passport Control kiosks, and/or assist them to have the necessary documents ready for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers. If you're bilingual, you also occasionally support CBP officers by translating the interview with the passengers.

If needed you're maybe placed at a various places inside the airport to help direct traveling public.


Although this position doesn't offer any benefits, you learn something everyday since you closely work with federal officers, airlines, and airport managers.


Position is directly associated with the Airport Manager Office so you get to interact with various managers, which are very friendly and willing to listen. Co-workers are also very wonderful to work with.


If you work morning shift, it starts at 5:30 am so it can get little difficult if you're not morning person. If you work afternoon shifts, time is not a problem but you have to deal with afternoon rush since most of the international traffic arrives in the afternoon which can get easily overwhelming.


Work/Life balance is very easy since you get to choose your own schedule, no questions asked.


Overall, a decent part-time job.
Pros
Experiences working with Federal Officers, Airlines, Airport Managers & Very easy Work/Life Balance
Cons
Frustrated travelers can be very overwhelming
