Operations Agent (Former Employee) – Hebron, KY – June 30, 2018
Truly one of the most disorganized companies I’ve ever seen. In my year of working there, I saw 11 managers rotate in and out. The chance of being let go is high, and you constantly feel on edge for job performance.
Breaks are not guaranteed, even when you remind them of their legal obligation. I was scheduled for 50 hour work weeks, but was often required to work 12-15 hour days without being asked. The job is mentally exhausting.
Trego Dugan itself constantly takes on more contracts and accepts more charters without considering staffing. This causes many delays and makes things tense, as they are extremely short staffed. Don’t be surprised if you are working an entire flight completely by yourself.
The opportunity for growth is high. People are constantly quitting or being fired, so new positions open up pretty frequently. If you can stand the high stress, lack of communication, and rotating staff, it can be a great resume builder/stepping stone in an aviation career.

Fun, fast paced environment, many down talk the company due to hours and wage. People need to understand the airline business.....wages are competitive, management is great. You can actually can call the VP or President and talk to them as a person. Great way to gain knowledge and experience to move on to larger companies.

working for this company is fun in the beginning but when you have to work every day of the week just to struggle to get enough hours to live daily sucks. Other places get more hours because they have more flights.

You have to remain on your toes when working for an airline. Everyday is different. I love the people and the environment I work in. It can get hard when dealing with delays and cancellations. You have to learn to read people and know how to remain professional in all circumstances. The benefits are nice. I enjoy travelling so not having to pay for that expense is nice.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Hebron, KY – July 3, 2018
The company overall doesn't have their stuff together, Between management local and corporate, they don't respect their employee's. The employee's are overworked and underpaid. They are always short staffed
Always exciting and working for a successful takeoff every flight
Ticket Agent (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – July 1, 2018
We were constantly in motion working with our customers. All your co-workers had to be aware of the progression of getting the flight out on time. I learned how to handle the pressure of deadlines. It was a pleasure to see the customers off to their destinations and a pleasure to see them return with sunburns and stories.
Ramp agents (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 1, 2018
This was one of my worst jobs I’ve ever worked at! Management was horrible did not know how to communicate well with employees. They lied to you when you get hired on they say one thing and once you start it’s another thing. I would rather be jobless then work for this company. Nothing but unprofessional people working there employees and management alike.
a normal day with spirit is always going to bring something new. it is always a different situation . i work in the companys operations so i have to make sure all flights come in smooth and go out smooth.
Ramp Agent/Baggage Handler (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 18, 2018

Ramp Agent Lead (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 29, 2018
The management is racist, they don’t want to see black people succeed in life. Mangers only think about their selves, they didn’t care if you had car trouble, sick, death in the family etc. You suppose to care about your team and work with your team not against. Managers never did any work never helped out the part timers or the full timers they just sit in the office and don’t do s*** Even the customers hated booking with them.
Don't waist your time guys. Management is uneducated reguarding aviation, but believes otherwise. Very unorganized and if you are not liked by the manager then your out. You eventually just give up. Safety is also a concern.
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) – United States – May 14, 2018
Trego-Dugan is a run of the mill airline ground handler. As such, they try to take as much work from carriers as they can despite their ability. This makes the company profit but low paying and heavy on work for the employees.
The HR is poor and the company does not do its best for its employees.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Trego Dugan – April 10, 2018
They say they will promote from within and that is what they do. They take the hard workers and give them additional responsibility and help you grow. If you come in and do the minimum you may or may not like your job. If you come in and give it your all you’ll be rewarded and promoted. .
I worked here for a month as a ramp agent/baggage handler. I was outside in the elements all day and I cant stand the cold so I was constantly cold and miserable. I made a few friends but other than that. If I knew it was that bad I would have never applied. You have briefings or meetings everyday and talk about what you did wrong everyday. Oh yea and the shifts they offer suck. You have to stay over the time you were scheduled if your flights are delayed or if you were second and the last flight is a turn, you have to stay because 3rd shift doesn't do turns.
didnt clock out for lunch
fast-paced, outside all day, no outside life, shifts sucks.
