Mixed feelings

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I enjoyed my time at Swissport. Loved my job but the company doesn't really care about the employees. They don't pay maternity leave and the hourly pay isn't quite fair given the type of job you're required to do.

Pros

Good place to work.

Cons

No paid maternity leave

The General Manager at the time, I was there was simply Great.

Advancement from Hourly to Salary employee, too a little longer than anticipated. All the support you could want came mostly from the General Manager. Supervisors were somewhat supportive, the Duty Managers, were focused on getting the job , not so much on employee interactions. There were were a few who went above and beyond, for their co-workers.

Pros

Enjoyed the overeall work being done.

Cons

Constant employee turnover.

Steady work once you get the hang of things

Training takes a bit due to focus on safety but after that it's not too hard once you actually start on job training. You have a set a set schedule and it's union. Only downside is being new you will probably get the worse shifts.

Pros

steady hours, good pay, benefits

Cons

new hires gets the worse shifts

Average

Easy job, but the mandatory overtime was insane. I shouldn't be working 2 entire shifts in one day. Getting paid every week was good but it wasn't worth having to do overtime every other day because someone called off.

Pros

Easy work, pay

Cons

Mandatory overtime

Slave drivers and no consideration.

Very limited hours. Equipment is always broken, training is not the best. Management only cares about saving money. They work you to death and expect you to like it.

Pros

Nothing good

Cons

No benefits, bad equipment, short staffed, no benefits.efit

Horrible

Bad pay for working environment and the amount of work that's required. It was freezing in the warehouse in the winter and burn up in the summer. They didn't want you to use a vacation day. They would tell the employee to see if they could find a coworker to switch a day off with, unless you were taking a full vacation week.

Pros

Nothing was free

Cons

Everything

Swissport is a multi million dollar joke

You have to work through lunch and get 30 min taken off of each day. HR is a joke. There’s no solid higher management no one hardly knows who’s above or below them. All of the supervisors make their personal problems our problems and it’s way too much stress for the pay.

Pros

Some people there were cool

Cons

No lunch, time still deducted for lunch

It's ok

Job work life - none, you live at the airport if you're good at your job.Compensation/benefits - 5 star for benefits, compensation sucks until you hit 10+ years of raises. United has best compensation and benefits.Job security/advancement - high turnover rate so easy to move up for that reason. But you can only move up a few levels (lead, then supervisor) then stagnant.Management -. Majority are idiots and only care about pushing planes and not your lawful breaks/lunches. Job culture - minus a few lazy ducks (co-workers) and power tripping geese (management) the pond is pretty dope.

Pros

Flight benefits, easy to move up, cool people (except bosses)

Cons

High turnover rate so man power is low which = no breaks

Good for over time really bad management

Good for overtime but bad staffing problem. There is so many things I could talk about but this company has its fair share of problems just like any other company will have, short staff every day bad management and no bonus that they offer.

Not a healthy workplace to be

They don’t value you at all. They just want you working and giving the extra mile every time. You are lucky if you had time to take your lunch break. Hard to get days off approved (even if it’s not paid). No vacation days, no sick days.

Pros

Holidays are halftime.

Cons

Short breaks, don’t value your effort.

Schedule and hours constantly change very unstable

I worked with swissport for 8 months and our schedules changed 4 times within that period. My off days were changed with a 3 days notice. Swissport was not what I thought it would be very unprofessional and unstable work environment. Didn’t received uniforms, no room for growth, management is very unprofessional. The only good thing was the weekly paychecks

Pros

Weekly paychecks

Cons

Unstable and unprofessional

Wouldn’t recommend 4-500 a week

Managers had favorites, the favorites don’t have to do any work while if your not a teachers pet you’ll be doing more than what the job actually requires you to do.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Overtime available for certain shifts

Unfair and too much favoritism not paid enough for the hard work that you’re doing . Management is bad… they only care about the operation. No good benefits. They make you full time hours with a part time status so you won’t get full time benefits

I was a Baggage Handler

The job was energizing and my co workers were alot of fun, very diverse, and 3 months into the company I got offered a supervisor position which is $18.54 an hour.. But there was alot of Drama and gossip, compensation is $16.54 an hour which is not a livable wage in Seattle, also There are NO flight benefits, Southwest airlines gives 40% off to us between June and September but yeah.

Pros

Fun, energetic, diverse, easy advancement

Cons

Surprisingly ALOT of Drama and Gossip! $16.54 an hour in Seattle is Low too so compensation.
