Us airways

As a Passenger Sales and Service front counter bilingual agent I enjoyed working at the National Airport of Washington DC ( the new airport), back then there were no treats of terrorism; that all changed after 9/11. the Company was growing and had just squired The Shuttle to La Guardia and Boston airports, the possibilities for growth were there. Unfortunately I had to relocate to Florida for a Family issue and left the Company.

Learning the bisiness and flight schedules and working with others

Great working with a group of professional people dedicated to customers and services. Nice benefits and time for family life and the flying for free benefit compensates for the pay. Work environment was usually cooperative and there were good chances for advancement to different department and great training. The employees were supportive and always put the customer first. There are difficult times when weather causes delays or cancellations but the team stayed focus on the problem and resolutions to help the employee assist the customer, enjoyed working and having conversations with co-workers.

Pros

Relationship building and solving customers problems.

Cons

Flight delays and cancellations

Fun productive workplace

A typical day at work consent of loading and unloading bags on aircraft. I have learned a lot about how aircrafts operate. Management can be strict at times but in most cases very good managers. A lot of co-workers very reliable. The hardest part about the job we had a fingerprint clock in system so always had to be extra early to work. I enjoyed the most at work was having conversations with co-workers.

Pros

travel benefits

Cons

hard parking

new challenge

worked in a completely new & exciting environment , meeting interesting people & discovering that you only thought you new it all. but thankfully-people like to share work knowledge & experiences & most listen to yours also & i guess it's a swap! worked with about 75% former military people & some had some very thorough training to share. don't have to worry about doing repetitive work on an airport, plenty of variety & excitement. constantly attending educational classes pertaining to your work environment.

Pros

always learning & challenged.

Cons

having to work night shifts because of seniority, not home when you'd like to be, tough when your children are still little.

Airline industry is completely overrated

Hard work but an easy job nevertheless. But management is the unethical you will probably ever see in your life.
